The SWANTONMASTER team go over what could come on the upcoming update.
I'm going to go with stuff, possibly lot's of stuff.
A new FW/PSN update is the main thing I'm hoping for at E3, I really think the XMB could do with a refresh and some new features. Really hoping they change the in-game XMB to a smaller menu with only Friends list etc that you can actually use and make it hopefully faster. Its annoying when I get a game invite and it takes 3 seconds to load XMB then another 4 seconds to load friends list then another 4 seconds to load profile/messages of the person you want, especially if you try to join people on Cod and it can take like 3 different invites before it puts you into the party!. A smaller faster menu is needed, along with other features like quick game join when receiving an invite instead of loading all the messages and then accepting.
If we got X game chat this update. Remember update 2.40? In game XMB? lol, that would be sweet!
Well, X game chat STILL hasn't come 7 MONTHS after it was 'coming in the next FW update' so.......
That feature is coming for PSN Premium.
I am cool with all those possible updates. Cross your fingers
hopefully, ive been tired of mw2 and if cross game chat was allowed i could just chill at the xmb and watch tv haha
i dont really know so could somebody please enlighten me: will it take new hardware for them to flash my ps3 for backwards compatibility with playstation 2 software or could they just do it with one of these firmware updates? seriously sony, what the f*ck is the hold up?
The PS2 sold 1 million units in the last few months. That's the hold up.
make the PS3 somewhat backward's compatible through the use of software. It's not fully functional though. There's probably a list of games that work with PS2 software emulation somewhere. I think it works in the same way as the 360's emulation works, only some games will work, others will not.
See, I can speculate, too.
I really like sandwiches.
This firmware update will enable the crisping function. You don't really think it's a coincidence that Blu-Ray & Bologna are such similar sizes do you? Finally, my Gaming & Toasted Bologna High-Def needs will be met by ONE Single Device!!! This will be even better than my Breakfast Making Robot, BreakfastExpress! http://news.google.com/news... P.S. Hey, this guess was as good as the guessing in the article!
More useless things? Maybe the final version of HOME? since that's only been a beta for like 3 + years now. Maybe fix the terrible voice chat and the lag? The horrible interface? Or maybe we get even more sparkly background ??? 90% of the PS3's updates are worthless or they brick your consoles.
they have added many features and taken out one useless (at least for most ps3 users) go check wikipedia, my friend and ill even give you the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
next article we'll see. " Confirmed:Ps3's transforms into miniconsIn fw 3.40" Seriously I hope no ones getting there hopes up
If it's nothing big I at least hope it's a XMB performance improvement. Especially in-game because it can be a little slow at times.
You know what else is a "no doubter"? This article sucks ass.
bc? cross chat?
