Try doing some of the PS3 controllers I've done and tell me it wasn't challenging.
Yes a Voltage Regulator, a Diving Regulator isn't going to do you much good, unless you plan to mod it to play games under water.
People have done PS3 mods, they just aren't as popular and it depends on what the person wants from it as to how far they go with it and then if they feel like posting it all over the net or not. I do agree there is little info in the realm of what voltage spots are where, but you can mostly blame Sony for that as they make revision changes one after another and nothing stays exactly the same really. The Phat and Slim aren't the same, so there's already 2 different setups to deal with, so it can be a real pain to keep up with that mess.
If you're already that impressive with the PS3 one would wonder why you'd want to do anything to it, but if you're going to then you should get yourself a DMM of your own to check for some things like this, not all info posted on the net is what one would want to take for granted, plus it's a handy tool to have around for more than just looking for PS3 voltage spots.
lol, i will do a forum search for your mods, all i see is basic led mods :/ after a whole while you start to get bored with it lol.
and LMAO haha i got that XD
Yeh your right and yes ive seen quiet a few revision. Like that of ipod gens lol. Ive over heard they are planing to release a hack prof ps3 fat and slim.. 2011 version :/ really they are downcracking, But they always done this, look at the psp from 1000, 2000, 3000 and on the go they deside to drop the UMD and double more security encryption... And yet there still alot of people modding and hax'in the hell out of it. Its sad to see that sony is no longer supporting the psp go anymore. 16gb internal and 16gb external support, what a shame.
I am impressed on how more reliable the ps3 is compared to the xbox360, But the shell is so plain. Ive seen some chrome 3rd party replacement top for the fat and complete chrome shell for the slim, its as about all 3rd party swap out i could find. I see soooo much more cool mods for the xbox360. I can understand though, its beautiful, but i want to add more to it haha. Its like a bug modifing doesnt always has to be about improving what is already awesome, I do it for looks in this case.
and yeh i dont have enough for a good DMM right now, Im doing this and that while i go to school so i can earn for a really reliable and quality built DMM. My father said to build my own MM anolog to learn from the experiance, He used to build his own in thick leather casing but wasnt quiet useful for what i need right now. Im still conside a "freshman" to electronics 101
