I wanted to add to my previous post regarding connecting your PS3 to a computer monitor.What about connecting the audio through to your your computer speakers as well?
This is a follow-up to my previous post regarding connecting your PS3 to a computer monitor. I received a lot of comments and emails regarding a (surround) sound system setup, so I'll try to answer them here.
I am going to be talking about something that is very near and dear to my heart. I didn’t think I would be revealing this to my blog audience so soon. I try to closely guard it because I’m not 100% proud of it. It is something that isn’t fully under my control, so bare with me while you read this… and please don’t poke fun.
Before school gets way to hectic and I don't have time to play games, I thought I'd rent another title that I'm a fan off - Need For Speed. Their newest release called Pro Street. I downloaded the demo on the PS3 and looked like fun, I though I'd try it.
The intros are fun to watch - once or twice, after that you'll just end up skipping them. The in-game intros and cut scenes get repetitive very fast, and there is no way to skip them. The announcer who 'believes in you' get annoying really fast because of the clips repeat over and over again during the course of the game.

Since there is an option in the XMB for themes, I assumed that there is some way of uploading/installing/downloading/whatever a new theme.
So after a bit of research, I found the process. It's very simple - Just 10 easy to follow steps.
