Is a USB hub compatible with a PS3 40 gig version? I'm wondering about getting the game "Rock Band", which requires more than 2 usb slots-but my PS3 only has 2 usb slots (40 gig version). So, I'm wondering if I go out and buy a usb hub, will it work when I plug in more than one thing to it? Will everything work OK with the PS3 when I have a mic and drums plugged into a usb hub?

I'm not willing to mod my PS3 to add in a few extra usb slots (read about that online).

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :thumbsup:

I'm not expert when it comes to PS3 hardware. But logicly I'm guessing it should work, the USB hub doesn't require any software installation it should work and it's just compressing 4 USB ports into one. I found a USB hub which should work Here
