This doesn’t pertain to those (like me who bought the 1st gen PS3 – we got hooked up pretty well !!).
But those who got the newer 40GB version got short-changed a few USB ports, a memory card reader and hardware-based backwards compatibility.
Nyko is solving two of these problems with their Media Hub, a 3-port USB hub with media card reader (SD and Memory Stick). Compatible with all available PS3s, the Media Hub snaps seamlessly onto consoles and works from a horizontal or vertical position. Expect the Media Hub to hit stores this August for $20. Sorry, no answer yet on the backwards compatibility stuff. [Nyko]
