    I've done that before, it's very cool and it's like a remote control. I can't go off of memory exactly right now but you can pair/sync your phone with your PS3 YouTube app so you can search for and start videos from the phone itself. It should be on the list of options on the YouTube app, then you type in some site or # on your phone and it'll sync up.

    thanks. that sounds kind of neat, but I barely use my smartphone, so I doubt I'd use it for that.....lol

    i'll just see if if can hook up a keyboard and use that.

    And so I guess the 'Recommendation' feature was taken out in the store? I can't find it anywhere. They had just implemented that too. Lame, I kinda liked that feature in sending PS Store links to friends.

    I hate this new store!!

    the old store seemed so much more organized into categories.

    just curious, can you type in searches using a keyboard? I hate the "letter wheel" they use......

    It looks good and thats all. Its nowhere near as functional as the old store nor easy to use. Its been weeks and it hasnt improved at all. I dont like going on it at all anymore.

    Anyone else having problems getting anything they download to install? I've downloaded demos but, when they hit 14% installed, an error message comes up saying the data is corrupt.

    I haven't, but it might be that your HD has a corrupt file that is causing other errors. I'd do the PS3 safe mode thing, and let it check for errors, and fix them. Then unplug your modem, and router, wait, and turn them back on just in case. Past that, not really sure.

    Woah! Crazy. Thinking about picking up LBP Karting and Psychonauts. I am a Plus member. I might go for some more. I was planning on getting the Jak and Daxter collection and Ratchet and Clank collection so I wont pick the those.

    I could get Jet Set Radio but I prefer Jet Set Radio Future.

    So I can buy something on the web, and then it will automatically download the next time I log into my PS3?

    No, according to IGN:

    "Sadly, the ability to make your PS3 or Vita turn on at home and download the content isn’t an option – yet. Instead, you’ll need to go to the “My Downloads” section of the PlayStation Store when you get to your unit or the Download List under your PS3’s Account Management/Transaction Management."

    It appears the recent update for the Youtube app (1.04) finally cured the problem of it randomly locking up/and or crashing my PS3 when playing a video. I've tested all previous versions prior to this and every one of them eventually crapped out. But after a few hours of use, this version has had zero problems.

    So I finally checked out the new store last night. And after I-don't-know-how-long, I could never find where disc-based DLC is located. I used to browse that section to add-on to the games I purchased, but it seems it's nowhere to be found now. Does anyone know where (or if) I can download DLC now??

    I hated the demo but people told me the retail game was much better. That wasnt enough to convince me though. Glad I will finally get a chance to play it. Nice timing with Platinum Games next title due out tomorrow

    I thought the demo was cool, looking forward to it. But it'll be sitting in my queue for quite some time :hehe:
