The Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) console is more than just a gaming platform. Equipped with a large hard drive, the console serves as a media hub for movies, music and pictures. In a few simple steps, a PlayStation 3 owner can transfer his personal music library from a PC to his console. A USB storage device, often referred to as flash drive, easily allows players to copy and transfer music. The PS3 supports many different file types, including common MP3 music files.
