Rebuilding Your PS3 Database - Increase Performance

The title kinda sounds like those spam emails about penis extension. But I had a ole friend link me to this bit of great info the other day. Its meant to increase the performance of your PS3. Speed up online, trophy syncing and overall performance.

So before I wrote about it, I wanted to give it a try and see for myself if this indeed does work or if it will mess up your PS3.

In the end, 3 of us including the friend who told me, all did the steps to rebuilding our PS3's database.

Does it work? Damn straight it does, its great. You will notice just the speed at which you can select around the menus on the store, trophy syncing and online freezes. Its safe, easy to do and the walk through of how to do this is a step by step process that even NON-techie guys like me can follow.

I don't know why this isn't a predominant part of everyday use that is more talked about. I guess you can compare it to defragging your PC.

If you have worries about losing any info of any sort, then Don't!. The only thing it gets rid of are your messages, so if you have info stored in your message folders, write it down somewhere cause rebuilding your database will delete them.

But EVERYTHING else, will be fine, your themes, saves, DLC, music, etc. So far I've had 3 friends do it and we all say the same thing, "It works"

Just click HERE to follow the steps for yourself and increase the performance of your PS3 today.

This is great! I'll take a look at doing it on my system later.
BTW, do you know if there's a similar thing for the 360? There's always an annoying delay every time you get back to the dashboard to select another game to play.

Yeah, I still have a few friends with the Fat's. I don't think its a big deal if people don't do this either way. Its more of less a nice bonus.
