This is a video game console ... right? $ony keeps adding things that have little or no value to actual gaming. There will be users who like the new features, but I suppose few on this site. It seems to me that $ony is trying to compensate for removing OtherOS in a previous update (or should I rather say "downdate" - I will look and see if the Oxford dictionary has this word).

They are putting things on the console you could have done with OtherOS. Perhaps they think that if they add enough other type applications, that unhappy customers will forgive them for removing OtherOS. But ... again they add things not requested by users. We can still hope for requested features I guess ... hold thumbs!

One feature not said about is the new photo albums. You can upload/download to Facebook and even view Facebook albums on the PS3.

And the video editor as said above can only view/edit videos made after FW 3.40 is installed will work with it.
