Speculation: Is Sony Confirming Rumored 2.7 Firmware Update?

284w ago - Update: Talking in the official [Register or Login to view links], someone asked if I saw the past codes. I replied yes, and the letters XI from the past messages sparked something.

If you didn't already read, the rumors for PS3 Firmware 2.7 claimed the in-game XMB loading has been drastically improved. Maybe they're revamping the in-game XMB as a whole. The letters XI could stand for 'Cross-Interface'. Okay, that's it Sony, I'm pumped.

A couple of days ago, we found some strange codes and writing in PlayStation Home. We posted screenshots, and no one really knew what they were. The codes and writing are back, but now it looks as if they're actually meant to be there and hinting us about something.

Could this help us confirm the rumors of 2.7 and it's features being true? Or is someone at Sony seriously not coding PS Home correctly? Could they be subtitles from an upcoming title Sony is already hyping?

I'd say its probably has something to do with the Warhawk space for Home being released soon, just my two cents.

LUA has been around for a long while.

I wrote quite a few scripts myself with it and also converted alot of already written code to a later version, as some formatting and syntax had changed over the versions.

I found it a nice language to learn and is fairly straightforward with lots of "if this equals that then do this or else do this instead" if you know what i mean.

I find it very interesting that Home is written using it.

Looks like the programming language LUA to me..

I hadn't heard of lua as a programming language untill now, i'm only familiar with c++, c#, java and networking languages like html, php etc.

Just wikipedia'd LUA (pronounced LOO-UH) and had a look at some sample source code for it and the code in the screenshots fits lua's syntax!

but why are they appearing in home??

it would seem that its intentionally being put there as opposed to being a bug...

Look at my crazy pictures i took with my phone while i was on home.

First:

"Jess are your there?

--------------------------------Xii is almost ready."



Second:

"Some code... just read it yourself, if u want, i'll upload bigger format picture "



THIS ISN'T FAKE, i spotted this at Playstation HOME under the updates and other news crap.
