Sometimes its automatic when you have the PS3 plugged into the router along with your PC.  An Icon with the Windows Media Center logo with the name of the connected PC shows up under the specific locations in the XBM.  I also believe you need to activate the feature in the PS3 setting.  It was all too complicated for me and I was only successful once with Windows 7 but upon updating my PC I have found the USB method much more efficient.

You can either go through your Windows 7 Media Player or download an App. Both your PC and PS3 have to be configured though. I just googled it. There were several tutorials.

 

I'm going to do a little bit more research myself though before giving it a try.:womanhappy:

Well. This is disappointing. Couldn't scrounge up anyone to pose with me. However, I can't stand wasting an hour of prep, so here's my submission--even if it doesn't win:

 

 

Caption: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (only Good didn't get the E-vite).

 

EDIT: Re-uploaded pic so it doesn't look so stretched

Club: Nachtmere

Adventures on PlayStation Home Capture/Caption Contest

Jul 9, 2014

 

 

Three Years Strong: A life changing moment took place July 7, 2011 as Adam_Bell, an old man in suit and tie dancing to Listen@Home in Central Plaza, caught the eye of May2099. We celebrate the special day two people never having met before put trust in one another in a virtual world of their making with fine friends and new adventures. :heart:

I am very excited to see some submissions already!  We have a tonne of time for this so feel free to post as many times as you like and promote your image if you want via social media!!

 

Also I NEED to see those watermarks, whatever the graphic, I am not sure what other watermarks are around Home, I know of Granzella the the PlayStationHOME watermark, but anyway, I must see those on the entry images.

 

Feel free to update you photo thorugh the edit feature on your thread or just submit another image.  Its a point based system in the judgement process using the criteria and forum likes.  I have changed the first rule of Two or More into One or More as it may seem to be challenging to get others to join you.  Just know the more users in the image equals a higher score at the end.

 

Don't forget to keep the watermarks!!
