Firmware 2.76 out now; Insta-Trophy Comparisonâ„¢ included

With only a fractional increment in the version number, don’t expect the fresh 2.76 PS3 Firmware update to do a hell of lot in terms of new features or radical improvements.

In other words, for those of you holding out for cross game chat and other similar wonderments; we’re afraid you’re going to have to wait (for E3 no doubt).

Predictions for 2009 (Part II): The Bad

We had the good. Now it’s the turn of the bad. What could go wrong for the PS3 in 2009? Are there any wrinkles at the edges ready to tear? Will we see death and destruction all around the gaming world? Will anything be as good as we are told it will? All this and more, after the break.
