    I wonder if we will eventually be able to play our own music in-game?

    "Support for PlayStation 3 format software titles has been expanded."

    Because the PS3 has trouble with PS3 games? Can someone elaborate on that one?

    Until v2.00 is officially released, I'd rule these just rumored features myself... time will tell.

    seriously! it's ridiculous that there still isn't an option for dvd upscaling! such a simple feature, which can be found even on generic $30 dvd player's today.

    i'm sure it has something to do with problems encountered starting up or playing certain PS3 games as been reported by some users.... that or it has to do with making users upgrade their software to play certain games!

    when you say "nothing cool," jasonson, do you mean that....
    • [Theme Settings] has been added as an option.
    • Wallpaper feature has been added.
    • CD information can now be entered.
    • XMB™ (XrossMediaBar) is now accessible during gameplay.
    • You can now have multiple chat sessions.
    • You can now select an image to use as your Avatar from [Photo].
    • Date and Time is now shown when the PS button is pressed.

    aren't cool features? i'm excited, sounds like a great platform for a 2.0 upgrade with many more revisions to come after that! any idea on when this should be available, PS3NEWS?

    He's entiled to his opinion. As for the entire list only RSS interests me and even then only a little.

    As for rumor, I do find it odd that they would go from 1.7 to 2.0.

    1.7 was a forced update due to the Euro launch. The XMB in-game requires a complete reconfig as it is, so it's poses to naturally upgrade to 2.0. Especially if they plan on making the planned 3.0 by September for the Home integration. FYI, anyone in the states who doesn't have a PS3 and is waiting for it to go cheaper- don't. It will be coming at a cost in '08...
