363w ago - To quote Eric Lempel, Director of PlayStation Network Operations:

Hey everyone. We know you like to hear about updates a few days in advance, so here's a quick heads up that we have a new System Software update in the works.

Firmware v2.01 is a minor update that will improve the stability of PLAYSTATION 3.

We'll provide more specifics as the update is about to go live, but we thought we'd give loyal blog readers advance notice!

    Rumor: New v2.00 PS3 update kills GT4 backwards compatibility

    350°
    364w ago - According to Guy Legend, a busy thread on the official PlayStation forums which had multiple people stating that the new firmware update for PS3 has killed backwards compatibility with GT4 has been mysteriously removed.

    To quote: Apparently on the PlayStation boards there was a thread (which suddenly vanished without a trace) that the new 2.00 update has killed the 80 gb's BC with Gran Turismo 4. Multiple people said that the game would no longer work.

    Ugh, anyone here able to try it? I assume if made aware, they would fix this in the next update...

    PS3 2.0... Finally some Official Information?

    50°
    365w ago - Just recently on the G.A.P. (Gamer Advisory Panel) section of the US PlayStation site there has been posted a survey for all G.A.P. members. The survey asks:

    Choose which XMB™ (Cross Media Bar) feature would be most important to you in a possible PLAYSTATION®Network update:

    A) In-game access to PSN messaging
    B) Ability to play my own music from the XMB while in-game
    C) Larger buddy list and buddy-list features such as categorizing

    Now this, combined with the recent PSP update which offers a feature that may only be used with PS3 FW 2.0 makes for a pretty strong sense that Sony is thinking about releasing the update very soon.

    Now this also brings up another worrying issue for the fans hoping to get in-game XMB soon. In the survey it asks to choose only ONE of the following. Does this mean that the complete XMB menu will not be available in-game, and just a portion of it will? Let the speculation begin! Thus far, for those who aren't a GAP member their survey looks like this:

    A) 43% 360 votes
    B) 52% 442 votes
    C) 5% 42 Votes
