Is Sony confirming FW 2.7?

Could this help us confirm the rumors of 2.7 and it's features being true? Or is someone at Sony seriously not coding PS Home correctly? Could they be subtitles from an upcoming title Sony is already hyping?

UPDATE: Talking in the official Sony forums, someone asked if I saw the past codes. I replied yes, and the letters XI sparked something. If you didn't already read, the rumors for FW 2.7 claimed the in-game XMB loading has been drastically improved. Maybe they're revamping the in-game XMB as a whole. The letters XI could stand for 'Cross-Interface'. Okay, that's it Sony, I'm pumped.

...I love Bees?

Sounds like someones a fan of Bungie or someone IS Bungie.

EDIT: Also, from the last related report, XI is Devil Dice's japanese name...all speculation on my part, though.

I'll have to check up stuff like this in the future.

I'm SO PUMPED to see this. Sony knows how to get people pumped!

Cajun Chicken3134d ago (Edited 3134d ago )

Yeah, pretty interesting.

BTW, really nice find.

sonarus3134d ago

WOW...Some people really need to find some games to play. If you look hard enough at anything you will find whatever it is you want to see.

If XI is enough to get you pumped then WOW is all i can say

Cajun Chicken3134d ago (Edited 3134d ago )

Hey, I love crytpic viral stuff like this. I was addicted to checking up things about Cloverfield.

Curiously scripted. That's been put there for a reason.

Just XI (game) was all I could think of at the time being (and I DO WANT an online PSN version of Devil Dice). Although as noted on forums XI, 'Xrossbar Interface'.

Cicinho3134d ago

So this is it then? The "omg i cant wait for 2.7 its going to change the world" saga. Yawn. Happy enough with my ps3 now, any extra features is a bonus.

Hitman_Legend3134d ago

especially when viewing trophies but I think it's better for people to not get excited over this speculation because thats what it is right now, and if turns out to be false there will be a lot of moaning and groaning, so it's best to take this stuff with a grain of salt because it could really just be clumsy coding as it still is a beta.

donno.. this doesn't exactly look like confirmation lol

whoelse3134d ago

I think you're barking up the wrong tree, so don't expect anything.

felidae3133d ago

let's hope they deliver these features after years of BS

freddukes3133d ago (Edited 3133d ago )

Okay... That looks like Pseudo Code... I'm a coder and It looks like a high-level scripting language, something similar to LUA... It means:

If the variable "s" is equal to "Alpha Zone 3" then run the function OpenDoors and pass the parameter of the 9th index in the array Alpha Space...

Now... Assuming "s" is an event variable holding the string value of an area name, and the event is "enter area" or something... Then we can assume that this code will just open a door to a specific area (you don't know what because you don't know what elements the array holds). Now, lets write up some Python code to represent this:

AlphaSpace = range(9) # Create an array which will hold the numbers from 0 to 8, index 8 will equal 8
def someEvent(eventInstance):
if eventInstance.area == "AlphaTest3":
OpenDoors(AlphaSpace[8]) # Okay, run the functin and pass the 8th element (number 8)

def OpenDoors(doorArea):
print "We shall now open door number: %s" % doorArea

That simple code will represent something similar to the meaning of that high-level simple scripting language and means nothing without knowing what the actual array holds... In this case you know the item passed was an integer (8), however, in that little example you don't know what it holds, so the only clue is the equality test testing if a certain variable (which you don't know when it was defined) is equal to the string "AlphaSpace3"....

-freddukes

Edit: I just read what I typed up and it may not make sense to some of you who have never coded before so basically, the short answer is, is it means nothing... It's a small bit of pseudo code which may represent you "walking in an area" and a "door opening up" (I'm only going on the names of the variables and the equality test here). We have no way of knowing what "door" it's talking about, and we only know it has something to do with being "Alpha" (pre beta)

Yeah man, thanks! Do you think it could be the subtitles for an upcoming title Sony is hyping?

Cajun Chicken3134d ago

No idea. Curious. I'll be looking for stuff like this now.

Mikerra173133d ago

can someone explain this too me I dont really get it

TheHater3134d ago

just be an error people so don't get your hopes up.

Cajun Chicken3134d ago

Gotta admit, someones very inspired by Bungie in Home HQ.

TheHater3134d ago

lol. Are you referring to the I LOVE BEE's stun Bungie pulled before the launch of Halo 2? That was well thought out and I wish more developers or publishers would try to top it. But sadly I don't think anyone even try anything like that other than Bungie

Cajun Chicken3134d ago (Edited 3134d ago )

Bungie's always done broken up messages like that. Even in its old series Marathon. It's pretty much their thing.
Also, Google 'Cortana Messages'.

Not sure why anyone would immitate it perfectly and sneak it in Home though.

EDIT:

there ya go.^

That's my theory anyway. Probably just someone joking around, but, thats hella Bungie-like.

TheHater3134d ago

Or someone that use to work for Bungie is now working for Sony? That just my guess of who is behind this.

If you make love to your ps3 will it love you back?

NateNater3134d ago

Yes it will...but only if u let it love u and give it the same amount of love back.

Chaoticsoulx3134d ago (Edited 3134d ago )

Sure i only glanced at it, but i don't understand it, so ill wait for more comments, lol.

edit: OK i read it, and that is obviously not a real error, and is scripted, if this is in home, i think it has something to do with the new spaces, like the ea sports, and socom, and all the others, they said they were coming sooner than expected, and judging by this message, they are in alpha stage, the stage before they are entered into hopefullyyy OPEN beta.

cool stuff, nothing to do with the xmb though, at least i highly doubt it.
