If you are that paranoid and just admitted to getting tv shows before release you might as well get off the internet right now.
That was just an example...
I know companies like to build profiles of their users for marketing purposes. They like to know what you buy or what you watch or what you listen to. Sometimes it's unavoidable, and other times there's an opt-out. I'm just curious if Sony does it.
I guess I just couldn't think of a better way to explain my question when I posted that. I do get paranoid to an extent, but I suppose without context I came off like a wacko.

Yeap they do collect that data. What firmware are you on?
I forget the exact number. They updated the firmware a few days ago, and I'm on whatever version came just before that. (I haven't used my PS3 in a couple weeks.)
Do they just collect usage data on PSN media, or all media? I wouldn't think they would care much about music and videos I copy over from a thumb drive.

I got that from a web site that is talking about the PS3 privacy patch. Since you are on an non-exploitable firmware you will just have to deal with your PS3 ratting you out on everything you do.
You can block those addresses using your router and stop it but you will lose the benefits of being on the newest firmware.

I'm having no luck with Google. What sort of info do the PS3 logs keep about non-DRM media? Like stuff I buy or download via my computer but transfer over to the PS3. Does it only keep the file name, or does it keep logs of meta data and file tags (like ID3 tags for MP3 files)? Or does it even care to keep a log of non-DRM media? (Media being anything other than games, of course.)
I am not 100% sure of what is collected but I have read that everything you do on the PS3 is reported to Sony.
