Yesterday Naughty Dog's Sam Thompson stated
in a Comic-Con 2009 interview that the PS3 Firmware 2.80 update adds more memory.
Today, SCEE has clarified these comments explaining that the Naughty Dog rep apparently got confused due to the Comic-Con excitement.
To quote: "There's no secret in firmware 2.80. Naughty Dog were actually talking about their engine 2.0, but in the ComicCon rush they simply got confused and said 2.80 referring to the latest firmware," SCEE told Gamezine.
Additionally, Naughty Dog community manager Arne Meyer
has stated the following on NeoGAF forums:
"This was just a typical blunder with all the info and people coming up to us constantly at the PS booth at San Diego ComicCon.
"He was actually referring to Naughty Dog Engine 2.0 updates we made. We had just been making sure at the event that all the PS3s brought in were on FW 2.80, since that is what that build needed to run on, so I have no doubt it was top of mind."
