PlayStation Update 2.80 Is Now Available

ZKG writes "Only hours after announcing that a new update would be coming, the update is available for download. I just downloaded it a few minutes ago and it is installing now. We don't even know what was in it, but its out. It appears that the thing that they said would be in it that PS3 users were asking for is new avatars. More details to come."


We have added an image so that people know that this is the real deal even if its not available everywhere yet. We are also aware that Sony has not updated there site with the new info either. Questions already sent to Sony to find out exactly what was in this update besides the stuff that was supposed to improve performance.

Article has now been updated with the information from Sony about what exactly was in the update.

I tell you what, KingJerry LawlerLoading Topic Overview..., in 25 years, I have never seen anything that even closely resembles what we've just seen here tonight.

JD_Shadow3803d ago can you know that there's nothing new in the update if you're still DOWNLOADING IT?!

Another bogus update. Thanks for underwhelming me again Sony. BTW, you people at Sony suck for wasting my time like this.

Calm down kid, Sony don't care about your time.

Yeah kid...Your ADD must be kicking in pretty hard right now. No shiny new flashing things in the download...just boring things like increasing compatibility and playback of a lot of games and adding more stability to the system (sarcasm). Seriously, you hyped yourself up, not Sony. They are helping you by making the system better at its core and you're worried about some stupid new feature...god help the future of the planet, lol!
