Any idea how much an optical cable costs here in India and which brands are supposed to be good? However, my ps3 is connected to my 40" LCD via a HDMI cable that i bought from amazon.
oh..so that explains it..man..I should have got it during the thanksgiving deal !..i got other stuff, but damn..missed this awesome ps3 deal..anyways, for the Optical Audio..i use Dynex..it's the cheapest one I found in store in BestBuy..!
I don't know companies in India manufacturing optical audio cables..but I'm sure there must be many sellers there selling those cables..
Amazon..I'll have to check for sixaxis price..cheapest I found for sixaxis was some other online site for like 38 with shipping..29 is excellent price..but you know, the new Dual Shock 3 controllers have come out..which have in-built Rumble/vibration !..they've got pretty good reviews..not available officially in US right now..only japan has released those..but some sellers are importing from japan and selling at around $60 for the dual shock 3 in US..

Eagerly waiting for that and will certainly add that to my collection after the price gets stabilized. Do you know any good sites where i can buy the games at a cheap price? I want to get them shipped to a friends home in Phoenix as he is coming to India this month end.

Default Re: PS3 in the house!!!

I have some serious basic doubts to clear out on PS3:

I bought a 160GB PS3 last month from Malaysia as I was getting an offer which I couldn't refuse! . The "Gamer Sales Guy" asked me to go for a small hack in the console so that I would be able to play games directly from the HDD (full versions). the offer sounded cool to me as I will not be spending bombs on these new games which get released every other day.

Thus I was sold to the packaged deal of "160GB PS3 + Multiman 1.16 installed + Copy of NFS Hot Pursuit saved in the HDD". The sales guy said that all i need is to buy one game disc which is to be kept loaded inside the console all the time while I will be playing games from the HDD.
This was working all fine in the shop. But I tried the same back home with no luck at all. I bought genuine DiRT game disc which is kept loaded inside the console but the NFS from the HDD is not loading at all.

So here are my doubts?

I want to get rid of this Multiman, Can I just hit the "triangle" button and delete it?
My current system software version is 3.55. I want to update my system to 3.6 so that I will be able to access PS3 store and get access to all demo games. would there be any problem going for an update as I have multiman in the system?


Help!!!
