Just Bought A Playstation 3

Just bought a Playstation 3 this afternoon. I had a lot of trouble configuring it to fit in our household local computer network; it took a lot of effort to configure the local router to allow the Playstation 3 to access the Playstation Network and create an account. The process was much, much smoother with the Xbox 360; granted, I started with this generation on the Xbox 360 so I can imagine anyone who buys the PS3 as their first console probably won't feel any headaches when setting it up. Most people will probably plug this in directly to their modem; if you have a special setup with a router that connects other systems in your house, that's where you'll have problems setting up the Playstation 3, like I did.

The Playstation 3 also pulled this nasty stunt on me where it reconfigured my router's settings, and I had to reset the router just to get the local network up and running again. After that, I had to put customized settings for the PS3's IP on the router just to get it working without any problems.

Luckily, the tags "Scytherage" and "Wuffyx" were still available.

The first (and only) game we've bought for the PS3 so far is Little Big Planet. It's a really cute game; I can imagine the younger crowd will really enjoy it as a plaforming gaming experience.

That said, it's Christmas time, and I'd just like to make a small wish for this season:

Peace On Earth and Goodwill Towards All Men.

Merry Christmas.
