About

Welcome to PS3 Planet. This website is totally dedicated to providing you with the latest PlayStation 3 related news, reviews and trophies.

PS3 Planet is best displayed on A-Grade Browsers with a minimum width of 1024 pixels. All pages are valid XHTML 1.0 Strict and are using valid CSS 2.1 stylesheets. However, the ui.theme.css stylesheet will not validate because it is using CSS 3 features specific to some browsers.

This website uses Microformats for more semantic machine-readable data items. Such as rel="bookmark" and rel="tag" on anchor tags. Also, all external links have an icon to the right side of them (External Icon). This is done dynamically by adding a class to them by jQuery.

Acessibility / Usability

PS3 Planet uses access keys on the main navigation. These make it easier for users without a mouse to navigate this website. For more information on access keys and how to use, please see this article: Access key (Wikipedia).

Access keys for PS3 Planet

  • Access key 1 - Home
  • Access key 2 - About
  • Access key 3 - Reviews
  • Access key 4 - Trophies

PS3 Planet also uses a hiden Skip to Navigation link for users of mobile devices, which cannot display the layout. This enables them to go straight to the navigation without scrolling. A Skip to Content link is not needed because the content already appears at the top, when no CSS is displayed.
