SystemLink: "The Official Playstation Magazine has revealed that a new PS3 firmware is heading your way in June."
Yes! :) It'll arrive on the evening of announcement at E3, I'm guessing...
That would be cool: they may even make it the first announcement at their conference and then BAM: Kevin Butler arrives to tell you how as the VP of software upgrades, he had made it his mission to have the firmware update released later that day. would be nice :)
I think they will deffinitely have KB at their conference, prob in a pre-recorded video announcing something. As for the FW, this basically confirms that there will be an update around E3. Just a guess but how good would it be if they said they are no longer featuring the PS2 at E3 any more....because the PS3 is going to takeover from now on by getting full BC compatibility (basically turning it into a PS2 anyway). Hoping for a big PSN/XMB revamp though.
E3 is gonna be special with Sony this year.
Having KB live on E3 would be awesome enough.
So do we need a special TV? Yes?
Sony gonna announce something huge that requires this new firmware at E3 like PS2 playback. In fact I reckon at E3 they will say something like GTA 3 and Vice city are available on PSN store........NOW! And the gaming world will explode lol. You couldn't make this crap up.... Or Could I?
Its not going to happen, it would be great but it wont. It will be a new update in support of premium PSN. What that will all include only sony knows.
New FW is Coming to add loads of Stuffs people were asking + Full 3D and at the same time, something tells me that PSN Premium is coming too, without Touching Free On-line Gaming
It says to introduce 3D gaming. I thought 3.30 did that?
3.3 did 3d movies, gaming apparantly need something different.
3.30 preped the PS3 system for some upcoming new features, including 3D stereoscopic gaming. 3D Blu-ray is still a while off yet on the PS3, actual 3D gaming will come in the next FW with movies the one after.
Yeah, likely same day as their E3 conference. Hopefully this means some even larger additions are in the works for the firmware update. Like two years ago they did the video store that opened the night of the conference.
Wonder what's going to be in store for this update...I promise i won't get my hopes up this time..
GET READY TO PAY FOR PSN SERVICE SOOOOOOOOOON!!!!
Coming on guys we all know that its a redesigned XMB to accommodate the new paid subscription services :-)
yeeaaaa! 3-d is coming,I can't wait to test it out.
It'll be interesting when 3D arrives on PS3 to see how much momentum it gains.
3D looks to be a promising feature for the PS3 soon enough. I wonder how games like GT5, KZ2, UC2, and GOW3 would look in 3D. Mmmmm, delicious eye candy. :D
who knows, x-game chat and universal custom soundtrack might be announced. i'd like to see the faces of xbox fanboys when that happen.
They would just go xboxlive is still superior because uhmmmm we pay for it derp derp.
they'll probably wonder why it took 5 years for Sony to do something that it's main competitor has been doing since day one
Ignorance is blissful, Cueil. Being an informed person on games, you know why. You know the issues they have with utilizing methods that are already patented by their competitor which leaves them with utilizing a third-party application that increases load on the processing in addition to their games and can adversely affect said games. Honestly, I don't think we'll hear about x-game chat unless it's a premium feature that essentially means you're paying to be a part of a Ventrilo-like community. I really don't see any other way Sony can do it since Microsoft most likely won't even allow Sony to license their own technology. It's what I'd do, at least.
The Cross Game Voice chat is coming for PSN Premium.
Its gonna be for everyone. :)
XGC s a crap feature that absolutely RUINED some games on Live. TF2 is a mess because of it, imo, an it's why I no longer pay for a Gold sub. If it comes to PSN iot will be a very black day in my life-all it does is take people's minds off what they're doing and can't we wait a minute or two to speak to our mates these days? I can and think it's rude to your mates and your team mates not to give them all your attention when you game with them or talk with them-and with XGC you don't do that. To say nothing of the cheating possibilities. XGC can sod off-even more than bloody Live avatars. Seriously, why do we HAVE to have one?
Nice, I'm also hoping for a few extra features other than 3D like already mentioned redesigned XMB. I like this one, but I would like to see something new and less minimalistic.
I would prefer if SONY gave us the possibility to chose if we want to accept the new style. I still want the old XMB back, where anything was even more minimalistic. Plus I want the game start-up sound back. Plus I want the old friendlist back where friends online where on top in alphabetical order and the friends offline where in alphabetical order too. Some things they've changed just don't make sense to anyone.
I bet it will be feature packed,full of more useless stuff,we probably get 2 extra colours for our PSN ID's. Sony always screw up FW updates.
and better web browser...... please? =(
Haven't we already known this for quite a while now? Sony mentained around 2 months ago that June would be the month for a full 3D firmware update.
next hiphop gamer article Confirmed: Sony bringing ps2 titles to psn and adding x game chat with fw 3.40"
Having PS2 titles would be amazing. I hope they will sell them over PSN too! I feel like RE4 again! :)
i know a lot of people don't like hiphop, but its sad when haters like you bring him up out of no where.
Have we not yet learned to never get excited about impending firmware updates? It's just a disappointment in the making.
....for bringing me back down...BUT something announced near e3 might warrant a bit of excitement imo, even if its a little
Right after E3 lol we always want them to do this, so mybe they will give people what they want or role out a new service
its not to handle 3D games at all -_- that happend in the last update!
Was the preparation for a 3D update there was no enabling of 3D itself. People need to go back to learn to read.
=10 its mai favorit1
IT should arrive around e3 then. Lets hope this is a launch of a huge update.
Please oh please Sony add stuff please don't take anything away.
so because they took 1 thing from your ps3 away, your gonna cry because your scared they are going to do it all the time?
God i really don't care about 3D support....Cross game chat where?
That its bigger than just 3D even though I wouldnt be suprised if its just a big media update Sony taking longer to bring cross game chat than in-game xmb it seems.
hopefuly it just isent 3g game support but other features that the ps3 is missing as well
My eyes cant even detect 3D. So this would be useless for me.
but I am sure Sony is stroking their mighty beards with something uber nice up their sleeves.
Ok, did they know we got the 3d fw update the day avatar came out? Don't think it has to do with 3d but just making xmb better.
I cannot help but get excited every time a FW announcement is made. I hope it's a big one and they add some of the features and ideas from the suggestion blog Sony put up. Might be tied into something they are announcing at E3. Bring it on!
Seriously this E3 is going to be SONY and Xbox head to head for sure, last year was lame. And nintendo, lol , lets not go there.
only xbox fans want that bs
...support then I guess there will be nothing in it for me. I could not care about 3D support as I'm not buying a TV or glasses to support it.
Well i play Batman GOTY with my 3D glass on my normal LCD 42'', and it looks good enough for me.
Well i play Batman GOTY with my 3D glass on my normal LCD 42'', and it looks good enough for me. Im putting my money on a revamped XMB
