214w ago - Update: According to JoyStiq, the XBox 360 may also gain USB storage support in the upcoming 2010 update!

Today GamingBolt.com (linked above) is reporting that they have received an image of a new XBox 360 dashboard update on the way, namely version 2.0.9195.0.

Aside from the picture below there is no other evidence to support this claim, but many users feel it indeed looks legitimate so only time will tell for sure.

To quote: "Gamingbolt has been tipped off that a new XBox 360 dashboard update is coming soon, as we have a photo to prove it.

An image was sent in which appears to show a new XBox 360 dashboard.

The update appears to have been accidentally added by Microsoft after a console repair. Judging by the screenshot we can guess that the next dashboard update will be 2.0.9195.0."

215w ago - Update: Today SCEJ has confirmed the rumor, as discovered by JustPushStart.com, along with the initial PS3 3D titles previously announced.

Just under a month ago we reported on an upcoming PS3 Firmware update that includes a 3D video output option, and today Japanese site AV Watch claim that it will arrive on June 10, 2010.

To quote: "The update, which we're assuming will coincide with the launch of the LX900 television, will also unlock 3D Blu-ray movie viewing.

You'll need a compatible set (and those glasses) to see the 3D, though."

For those curious, PS3 Devs have confirmed that Debug update 3.20 weighs in at 149 MB (156,756,437 bytes) and that 3.21 is also already making its rounds... hopefully a leak will follow, eh?
 

GDC Rumor: LittleBigPlanet 2 (LBP2) Will Hit PS3 This Year

215w ago - Straight from GDC 2010, rumor has it Sony is set to release LittleBigPlanet 2 (LBP2) for PS3 this year.

To quote from VG247.com (linked above): "Whether the LittleBigPlanet product's disc-based or a download is unknown as yet, but our source was cast iron on a 2010 ship.

Sony's holding a press conference in GDC's locality this week, but we have no idea if anything from Media Molecule's to be included.

A second game in the series would signal a major change in tack."

It was announced last week that Sony has fully bought the studio.

LittleBigPlanet is a platform game featuring a little sack character and a suite of user-used development tools. It was released in 2008.

It was confirmed in November last year that more than 1.3 million gamer-generated levels had been created for LBP, and last week that more than 2 million have been made to date.

215w ago - Update: This rumor is now confirmed by lucasartsgames via Twitter, to quote: "Announcment one: Secret of Monkey Special Edition on PSN and Mac."

According to the GDC rumor mill, Lucasarts is planning a Special Edition of The Secret Of Monkey Island 2 that will be coming soon to Sony's PS3 entertainment system via PSN.

Kotaku reports that unlike last year's Special Edition of the first game that never saw the light of day on the PlayStation 3, this year's will make it to PlayStation Network alongside PC, XBox 360 and iPhone versions.

To quote: "We've heard from sources that the game is due to be announced very soon, perhaps even next week at the Game Developer's Conference, and that like the first game's special edition, will contain all-new graphics and audio.

Unlike the first game, however, this one will be reaching a few more consumers, with versions planned for not just the Xbox 360, PC ad iPhone (like Monkey Island), but the PlayStation Network as well."

216w ago - SONY is always whining about piracy and how evil pirates are. But are they better themselves? Not really!

While I browsed the web lately, I read a bit about Bryan S. Blank, the Director of Information Security at SONY Online Entertainment.

Getting a bit more interested I found his private homepage (asdfg.org).
