I am sure there are still quite a few that use it believe it or not.
When I upgraded my old PS3 HDD I took the old one and popped it in a cheap ass enclosure, was seriously about $10 for the enclosure. So not only did I bump the ps3 up to 320gb I had a pretty much free 160gb external.
<-Not one to waste good electronics :)
That's some nice upgrades!
Can it run Crysis?
so what is the word on other forms of media transfer like PRO DUO. Kinda miss the media card reader from 1st GEN PS3
I wouldn't assume that USB 3 would charge any quicker, USB 2 could push a lot of power if the ports are built to supply it. If it can charge an Ipad then I'm sure its more than enough for anything Sony would need.
I'm surprised that they didn't go with BT4 that considering how stardised it is becoming.
Extra power is part of the USB 3 standard, so it should provide the extra recharge rate. But there is also the fact that recharging things too quickly can affect the batteries life and ability to hold charge

Can someone help me fill in this table and correct me where I might have made some mistakes.
I'm very curious to see how much better the PS4 is in terms of percentages.
You cant really compare it on percentages, the architecture differences are the big differences in terms of potential performance and functionality rather than comparing the specs. Both Ps3 and Ps4 run in very different fashion.
The GPU is easy to compare, the memory bandwidth is also reasonably easy but the CPU's are a totally different breed. For instance if you compare them on mathematics you will find Ps3 is twice as fast but this doesn't demonstrate how they operate in action.
