318w ago - Last week news broke that Insomniac's Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction contains PS3 Firmware Update v1.94 and is the first retail game with built-in support for the DualShock3.
Although not officially released yet on Sony's Web site (and we're unsure if Sony will skip v1.94 on their site moving right to v2.00 like when they jumped from v1.54 to v1.60 skipping v1.55 which came on some stock PS3 retail units), those who got their hands on Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction already have updated to v1.94.
Without further ado, those who don't want to wait for Sony to make a corporate decision can grab the PS3 v1.94 (USA) Firmware Update from the link above and update as normal.
Thanks to a nice guy on iRC EFnet #PS3News for helping out with this, and get those DualShock3's rumbling guys!
318w ago - The much-talked about PS3 2.0 firmware could be with us within days, following new 2.0-compatible features being added to PSP.
Newly-released PSP 3.72 firmware contains new Remote Play features which require the associated PS3 to be running on firmware version 2.0 - which has been hyped to high heaven within PS3 internet communities.
Among a whole slew of new features, PS3 version 2.0 is widely expected to add the ability to browse the Cross Media Bar menu while running a game, drastically improving the console's overall functionality.
Although there has still been no official confirmation as to what PS3 firmware 2.0 will actually add, or when it will arrive, Sony has today confirmed that it will allow you to boot up the PS3 using the Remote Play option on PSP consoles running the new 3.72 update. Are you getting all these numbers?
318w ago - According to the official PlayStation UK site, the recent PSP Firmware 3.72 update includes a new Remote Play feature called Remote Start, which allows users to remotely turn on their PS3 from the PSP. This was one of the rumored features for the upcoming PS3 Firmware v2.00 update.
To use the feature, Firmware v2.00 must be installed on your PS3. Last we heard, the next PS3 Firmware update was slated for the end of October.. which leaves it hitting within the next 1-2 days if Internet rumors hold true.
