PS3 Firmware v2.0 Details!!!

Posted by Jay on Sunday, May 13, 2007

Well, apparently Sony released some information on firmware version 2.0 for the PS3, but quickly took it down (maybe they released early?). But apparently people on the official PS3 forums and PSU.com were able to get the information before it was taken down. After looking at the list, all I have to say is that this will be one big update. Here’s one thing that will make many PS3 users’ mouths water: XMB during gameplay!

No info yet on when these will be released though. Here’s the complete list, courtesy of the forums and PSU:

    I wish they would provide album cover images when importing CDs. I’m sick of looking at the default icon.

    What about a volume control? Have you forgotten SONY? Its easier to use just the PS3 controller, withouth having to find the TV, receiver or amp remote..

    Its plenty of buttons there, why not include volumeadjustment with the analog stick like in XBMC?

    it would be good if they made it possible to play music stored on your ps3 whilst playing games. ive got some trivium that goes well with most games and it annoys me that i cant play it :S

    I don’t often feel the need to argue about this whole console war, being a utopian gamer, but…really? Do you really need to defend a multi-billion dollar company?

    Oh and Orange Box. Yea. Yea, I went there.

    Why does the term “Polished Turd” come instantly to mind, sorry rich twelve year olds (or those with the mentality there of).
