If he knew who stole it i wouldnt be posting right now. He was out for an hour leaving the bathroom window open when he came back it was gone.

Is there a serial number on it? I think you can trace it down with that. If you haven't written it down, then you're out of luck.

i'm guessing the only way you can track it down is if they activate the ps3. but if they're smart and don't. your outta luck. Should have made sure all windows and doors were locked before leaving.

i dont think so, unless he put a tracking device inside the ps3

Just find yourself an injun. They can track almost anything.

Maybe it can be tracked down via IP Address if the theif decides to play online.

Just call Sony or the police. What else could you possibly do? Also instead of bumping this old thread you could've just made your own...

If you/he registered it with Sony i think they can block it at best... Call the police they should find prints or something.

Edit: Oh darn i was tricked into posting in an ancient thread.
