Hot video game systems require continual updates to keep up with new developments

I hate to break it to you, but that spiffy new video-game system or high-definition DVD player you just got as a gift is already out of date - right out of the box.
Fortunately, you don't have to return your Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Portable video-game system, or your Blu-ray Disc or HD DVD high-def player. You just need to do some updating.

Not news to anyone in-the-know about video games. But maybe if there were more stories like this then the video game buying public wouldn't be so uneducated.

And the problem stretches further than firmware updates. For example, how many PS3 owners do you think are going to do the "Super White" or "Full RGB" settings? Probably very few, and that's a damn shame. It's actually an enormous surprise to me that so many old ladies and 6-year olds managed to figure out syncing Wii Remotes.

funny that you should say that, i know a few people that didnt know about the superwhite and full rgb, people should check the updates out to see what they get, or read them when downloading them

it came with a white slip of paper that says some blu-ray players may not work and that they may have to update their players to play it. I wonder if people will bother to update? :3

So it can be kept up to date. And it isn't that hard to do, so why shouldn't you update them?

The only problem is if the updates come to frequently, then it becomes a bother.

Alot of people dont even know what comes with the update, they get all these features but dont even know how to activate them or what these new features do.
