    I'm having problems trying to upgrade to 3.0. Is there somewhere you can download it from the web and put onto the PS3 via a USB stick? If I try to update on the PS3 directly it sometimes gets to the download stage but it stays at 0% for ages then says it couldn't connect to the server. Are the servers just under heavy load, or is there something up with my network?

    Here you go. Click on "download now" on the right.

    P.S. I thought you were an Xbox person?

    Thanks it seems to be working now. Sort of anyway. It's ridiculously slow to load anything on the PSN store, but I think that's probably down to the crap wireless signal I get in my house.

    Ok it works if I use a "wired" connection that is actually connecting wirelessly through an wifi-ethernet bridge. My new TV cabinet must have lead mixed in with the glass or something.

    I'll be needing one of those soon as well.

    But I have no idea how I'm going to back everything up as the backup HDD needs to be in FAT32, not NTFS. :hmmmm2:

    Geoff, you can connect it to your computer and format it to FAT32 before connecting it to the PS3 (note: this works for Macs and Windows computers).

    Yes and Yes!!!!

    It is really good.

    The online is always easy to get into a game but usually it is half bots and half humans - you can't tell the difference though.
