Cleaning the sticky PlayStation controller analogue thumb sticks
I've not touched my PS3 for a while and so the controller has been sitting behind the TV gathering dust so it was a surprise to me when I took it out that both of the analogue thumb sticks were really sticky. I've not spilled anything on the controller and it was always kept in a good clean condition. After some searching around it appears that this happens to quite a few people.

Improving slow download speeds on the PS4 and PSN
I always tend to play catch up with the games I get as presents on PlayStation so the usual course of events when starting a new game is to wait for the update to finish downloading. Sometimes this can be quite a long wait, going into expected download times of longer than 24 hours.

Metal Gear Solid 5 Limited Edition PlayStation 4
I've received a txt from EB Games on the Monday afternoon telling me that I could pick up my new PlayStation 4 MGS 5 Limited Edition that evening at their midnight launch. Unfortunately I was travelling interstate early the following morning so couldn't make it. I did finally pick it up now and had a bit of a look and I'm impressed.

PlayStation 3 4.75 software finally makes the R2/L2 buttons work on a PS4 controller
I've written previously how a PS4 controller can be used with a PS3. That had some limitations, notably the R2/L2 buttons were not working at the time and the PS button would not allow you to switch the PS3 off. Well one of those have been addressed in this update.
