    Since any news about PS3 CFW is slow I thought I'd share this.

    I did try this myself and it does indeed work.. however I only get it to pop up for a few seconds. Discuss!

    This is old news, it was discovered for the Vita about a week ago and reported on a few sites, then people discovered it also works on PSP and PS3. It's been reported here on GBATemp already (not sure where, but there is definitely a thread about somewhere). It's also not a "menu" as there is nothing to select and it is almost completely useless. It just shows some information about the build of the firmware.

    On a side note, on the PSP at least, you need to keep Start held as long as you want the text to display, when you release Start it disappears. Alternatively, while holding start, you can press left on the d-pad and then let go of Start and it will stay until you press O.

    Sorry if this has been posted else where. It's really hard to find useful interesting news about the PS3 that doesn't have anything to do with those stupid jailbreak dongles. I just thought I would contribute somehow.

    "useful"? This is absolutely useless information (no offence meant to you for reporting it, just in general this has no use to anyone)

    I never said this post in particular was useful. I suppose you could imply that I did. It's just PS3 news that I thought was interesting and decided to share.

    Give you information you can already find in other places... (so it's useless)

    It gives you information you cannot easily find elsewhere actually. But that information is useless.
