I saw that my local Target has the old version of Warhawk with an included Bluetooth headset packaged with it. Is the game and the headset worth the $29.99?

Select "Cool Levels" below the main quest select choice.

BTW: There's a LBP thread below.

Even when you're a pretty good PJM player, a lot of these trophies are mighty hard.

It's a co-op bonus mode that you unlock by beating the single-player campaign.

This is good to hear. I thought I was just really rusty and I was getting angry about the attrition of my skillz.

I don't know if this has been mentioned, but I noticed that the clock on the PS3 was an hour ahead, and stayed that way after changing it via the internet. I had the "Daylight Saving" option selected instead of "Standard," so when I changed it, it became correct (and would update online to a correct time as well).

I thought the option was for whether your area uses DST, but I guess it refers to whether the time in your area is currently DST or Standard time. So, do I have to change this every six months to keep the clock correct?

I've been having issues after viewing a flash 9 or higher enabled site. Everytime I exit the browser, it hangs and I have to use the off button on the console because the controller won't do it.

Anyone have the same issue?

Is this all it adds? If so, what PS3 game(s) did it fix? Other than that, it seems like a very minor tweak that will take way too long to apply.

Got the prompt for it last night as I was getting ready to play a little Dead Space. Ignored it.

Well, got my new PS3 hooked up yesterday. All I have done so far is update software, connect to PSN to create account and watched a BluRay.

Does anyone know anything about DNS errors? I got a few when trying to update software and connect to PSN. I would just try again and it would work.

Please feel free to send me a friend invite!

Does anyone know how to change the setting to make the PS3 turn off after downloading from the PS store? It does not come up as an option when I click on the download. Thanks.

Go to the shut down option under "users" ... if something is downloading, it'll give you the option to wait until it's done.

Thanks Walker Boh. If I have more than one item downloading will it wait until all of them are done or only the one currently downloading?

Several updates have had a note about compatibility or quality of PS3 games being improved, but they never tell you which games are affected.
