We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that downloads firmware with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
And gentlemen everywhere now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon THIS day

Chris Bosh3815d ago

Yeah baby, i agree with u

jaysquared3815d ago

Welcome to 2002 PS3 owners.. Now you can cross game invite and message just like the ORIGINAL Xbox did! Congrats!

staub913815d ago

I guess it's time to see the mass histeria on the Playstation

INehalemEXI3815d ago (Edited 3815d ago )

So far no Custom soundtrack support on these titles ive tried. Goes to try more. Grrrrr! Gives up assuming patches to games will be required before it works.

Poped in God of War 2 ps2, and there is no in game xmb so far with ps2 titles it seems.

sdogg3815d ago

Its finally here! I get home from a crappy night where we lost both softball games to see 2.4 update. I can't believe its actually here.

jwatt3815d ago

I tried out gta online, saw a guy online then hit the home button and went to last players met and the guy was on the list. It works, the xmb is a little slower in-game but Sony could possiblly do a performence update to make it run faster.

If developers were smart they would hurry up and get patches out to support trophies and custom soundtracks because the first games to do it will get alot of attention. I want to see MGS4, COD4, GTA4 and Warhawk all get pathches.

INehalemEXI3815d ago

I agree we need them patches.

Liquid Dust3815d ago (Edited 3815d ago )

Those are definitely the big 4 that i want to see get trophies, and I definitely want see what Insomniac/Ratchet and what Naughty Dog will have in store for us via Uncharted. Drake is well overdue for another run through, its gonna suck picking up all those treasures again, but im looking forward to taking down some more baddies.

CrashSharc3815d ago

LOL, Where's Sonarus When you need him!?!?!?!?!?!

haha. happy downloading guys.

jwatt3815d ago

Yea my friend has Uncharted, I might let him hold one of my games so I can play it again.

ajeben8093815d ago

now gimme some firmware lol

Expy3815d ago

Will download when I get home :D

joydestroy3815d ago



INehalemEXI3815d ago

Ah I see now the superstardust HD custom soundtracks accessed through the games options. I was expecting to access it through the XMB.

plenty a tool3815d ago

lol everyone jumping up and down. welcome to the features that have been on the hated competitions console since back in 03, and have been standard since launch of the 360! and after reading so many condemn achievements, it's really surprising to see that they all now love trophies and they will soon be the new sliced bread. you've just gotta love the hypocrites that dwell on this very sad site.

anyway, it's good to see that the ps3 is finally getting some standard stuff, and is making tentative steps to becomming a decent unified service. the ps4 could well have an on-line service to match the xbox brands.

Cicinho3815d ago

wow, wtf everyone replied to you hahaah n00bish

crank3815d ago
