I have a Playstation 3, but I don't really know what to do with it. Jailbreaking it is impossible, and this sucks. Right now it is hooked up to my CRT tv, since it is the only thing i had in house that had an analogue vudeo output, and i use it to watch netflix, Youtube, Chrunchyroll, and some old cartoons, like Rugrats, Griffin, things like that. But I feel like I've never used it at its full potential. I own it since 2013, unfortunately, before i did not own enough money to buy it by myself, so I was able to get one only by then. And I feel like I've never used too much, in the first time, I've used it a lot, but after some time, i got myself a gaming pc, so now what can I do with this ps3? I think it could be do more than just streaming movies, should I buy some games? Even if I can buy the same game on pc at less price and have it with better graphics only for the sake of having a disc?

>Jailbreaking it is impossible
Are you certain? I know Sony removed the OtherOS feature and has attempted to patch the firmware against exploits that allow jailbreaking, but if you don't have the latest firmware, you may be able to find an exploit.

Also, I don't believe that Sony has achieved firmware with zero security flaws, so there might be some new flaw that could be exploited. I don't know if people are still working on that, though.

If you can't jailbreak it, I think you're probably already exploiting it to the fullest, unless you haven't already set up something like MediaTomb.

Certainly, you could pick up a ton of games for the PS3, probably at bargain prices. That would be enough to keep you busy for quite some time.

Yeah, unless you can get GNU/Linux on that thing it's essentially an over priced brick that only plays certain discs.

I think there is some hard modding you can do but unless you can soft mod that to play pirate games it's a waste of time.
