About time, I had been planning a rant about this one.

I came here to ask how to access it!! I've combed my PS3 menus ( nothing else to do with my PS3 until the BlueRay is fixed...) and I see nothing of it!

Has magically appeared on mine now, had to try many times to log in. But, looks pretty good when you get there.

Pop round to my studio for a coffee sometime, or to my new summer house for a beer! LOL

The icon should be just above the store under Playstation Network.

I went out to see if Icould find a Keyboard add on for my PS3 controller. Got a "logitech USB Illuminated key board" instead. It can control my music apps in LInux! An unexpected treat! (Well it can control next, prev, volume and mute. A nice plus for me! ":O} ( Now I'm just tying because I can...Three stages of illumination...":O}

Newegg.com - Logitech 920-000914 Black 106 Normal Keys Wired Ultra-thin Illuminated Keyboard - Keyboards

Alas, not for PS3 use.

If it is a USB keyboard it should work on the PS3 just fine, though you won't have access to any of the extended features (like the media player control buttons).

Hmmm, may give that a try Gizmo...but would be a bit inconvenient, but may do in a pinch...I've been waiting for Newegg to price the Logitech for PS3 a bit nicer...":O}
Newegg also has a el cheepo that might do..

Here's what I went looking for PS3 wireless keypad

But wasn't able to find it locally and wanted to "feel" before buying..

Which keyboard/key pad did you go with Danrok? I look at a PS3 wireless substitute but it look poorly made so I passed on it... Recommendations anyone? ":O}

I'm yet to access PS Home. It keeps returning me with a Timeout error, or a Connection Lost error, possibly due to the insane amount of people who are trying to access it.

Shame.

Seemed to work on the second time of asking on my other PS3 downstairs.

It's so much fun. Fell in love with it immediately.

It FINALLY showed up last night around 6pm. What can I say!? All the excitement of a mall that has half the stores empty... I just can't see a use for this personally...

Did I miss a RT turn or something...BTW once it showed up I had no problems logging in...just wondering why I would...I mean...I RALLY don't get this at all...please someone clue this helpless hippy in! ":O}

Check out the bowling alley, more to do there.

The general idea is just to socialise with new people, make new friends and then shoot them.
