Hi.. well yea as what the topic is.. what is the best way to turn off the PS3?
1) Usually while im playing a game ... so when i just finish playing i press "start" button and he game paused.. i hold the PS button and directly select turn off the system. .. thus leaving the CD inside... then after few seconds in standby mode i switch off the plug..
2) Quit Game first and then turn off the system during XMB screen
So which is better among these two? or maybe any other better way??
In addition, should i turned off the system completely or just leave on standby mode if i plan not to play it again for that day...?
ytevo79 : you said re-flowed ?....was it a 60GB model?
Nope! The supposedly better 40GB model of 18 months :Shame:
what i do is, press the ps button then press quit game and then i go over to the playstation and press the eject on the console and take out the game and then i press the power button on the console to shut it down, i dont like leaving a game in, just incase either it YLOD's or the blu-ray drive just all of a sudden dunt power up or the eject button dunt work.
I tend to mix it up depending on my mood, it's how I roll.
wear a condom
I hit the start button,exit the game and then select the turn off,A few times I did'nt know you had to do that and when I turned my ps3 back on I got an error message saying "ps3 was not turned off properly" :O,So then I realised you had to do it that way.
I do it in these steps.
1.) Hold the PS button, go to Quit Game.
2.) Push triangle then open the game. Put it in it's case. (Or just hit the Open button on the console)
3.) Hold the PS button in again and go to Turn off System.
4.) Turn it off at the mains, depending if I'm finished with TV, etc. If not, leave it on stand by till I am finished.
I always quit to the XMB first & after that it does not really matter what method you use to turn it off.
I do use one of those 'Goodbye Standby' devices with a remote.
I have a 4-way plugged into it, so with one button press I can fully power off the PS3, 360 & Wii, but leave the TV & DVD recorder, etc on.
Something like the following:
I leave the game in. Hold down the PS button and click "switch off console". Haven't had any problems yet.
Nothing in my room ever goes off stand-by. I'm to lazy to take out the plug and put it back in every time I turn it off or on. Even my PC stays turned on all the time. I think I've turned it off three maybe four times since I got it. I only turn my PC off if I know I won't be using it for a while (going on holiday etc)
