Extra Features In The Firmware 2.40 Update

TheSixthAxis: "Our Japanese is sketchy, but we're going to go out on a limb here and throw a few things into the mist: hopefully some are true, but all appear to be updates that SCEA haven't yet specifically mentioned."

The site goes on to mention a new 'off' option under the users list, surround sound MP3 recording and new sorting options for your photos.

Update:

Site is slow again, sorry guys - alt source here:

It just keeps getting better and better.

there's always extra features that they don't announce right away. i guess the like us to find them on our own.

remember the last big update let us organize our music and videos in folders but it wasn't even advertised. that was probably the best part of that update for me. so who knows what else is coming.

You are a cool person. Bubbles from me.

The nice (and unfortunate at the same time) thing about firmware updates is there are always features that we don't always know about until we mess around with the system a bit.

Contents of the post, because site is slow again =(

"Our Japanese is sketchy, but we're going to go out on a limb here and throw a few things into the mist: hopefully some are true, but all appear to be updates that SCEA haven't yet specifically mentioned.

Firstly, there's now an 'off' button under the PSN ID logins (on the far left of the XMB), as seen in the photo below. We're not entirely sure what's going on there, but it looks like some kind of stand-by, and Watch Impress suggest that the System Software will update itself after a power cut.

Photos can now be organised by when they were taken, and there also appears to be some kind of 'surround sound' MP3 recording and playback. Finally, and this is where we need proper Japanese translation, but we're reading something like 'frame noise reduction' and 'block noise reduction' for media on the hard drive, and news about DTS-ES and DTS 96/24 playback.

If anyone can properly translate, please get in touch, but we assume there'll be an English update log soon enough."

Yeah, but it is FORTUNATE that no matter how childish this site is sometimes, the news still get's out. It's the reason I joined this site. It might be speculation, but it causes me to look for things I wouldn't normally in my updates.
