    If the Ps3 has a web browser , one day or another there is bound to be a worm or virus for it . what are Ps3 owners going to do then? Norton Ps3 Professional ??

    If you are scared, don't use it. Simple
    I miss the days of random nut '03
    Click for more activation options, then activate by telephone. Run the keygen.
    if I call them, aren't they going to get me? (you know, down there)

    Well, the dubious quality of your advice aside, what happens if a virus is developed that affects all the people who weren't scared?

    I completely agree with mr. nails! you will lose no games or any personal or confidential information. Just use the web browser for updates, besides if a virus was to be created for affecting consoles, it would have been developed by now don't you think? Its not unlikely to happen though.

    Also I believe PS3 runs on a Linux distro. There's no viruses for Linux, is there? (not sarcasm, it's just that I haven't heard anything of any Linux virus)
    Sage goes in the signature field.
