Applications on PS3 GameOS cannot create "Menue-Items"/"Desktop-Items" like on Windows, can they?
Sure. Why should a new Game rely on a new Firmware? The API is fixed, so they cannot change any interface. If they do, the old Games whon't run any more. As said, that's all some kind of "dummy file linking" etc. without any software technical upgrades.
Another point: on what Firmware/Model should we concentrate? 1.5, 1.54, 1.6? Japanese/American/Euro Model?
As the only EU-Model uses PS2 Emulation but the others never will do/have (as the PS2-Hardware cannot be shutdown).
