Firmware update incoming
TheÂ US PlayStation Blog have announced that we are getting a wonderful new update for our favourite feature-hungry black box.
Not only that, but it could be rummaging in the fridge, lounging on the sofa and generally making itself at home from as soon as tomorrow!
In the inimitable words of Eric Lempel, Director of PSN Operation:
Hello, I just wanted to provide everyone with a headâ€™s up that the next PlayStation 3Â system software updateÂ (v2.80) will be coming soon. The playback quality of some PLAYSTATION 3 format software has been improved.
So… nothing to really see here. Bummer, right?
We have to admit that we were hoping for something more sizeable with the new firmware. Monkeys, bananas, a houseplant. Something.
Maybe they are just building up to something really spectacular for the inevitable Firmware Update 3.0 (yes, it deserved capital letters – it ought to be epic).
Anyway, we’ll be having a close inspection of the firmware to see whether or not we can root outÂ any hidden elements no-one else is going to have noticed. Let us know if you find anything strange or interesting lurking in the update.
Meanwhile, we’ll be enjoying the improved playback quality of some PS3 format software. Apparently.
