Speculation: Is Sony Confirming Rumored 2.7 Firmware Update?

550°
296w 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?

Expansion packs like The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King could easily fall under this very definition, based on both their pricing and the amount of content they have to offer.

While it is more than likely that Starcraft II will be released this year based on the fact that it is going into Beta very soon, as with everything Blizzard has ever done, nothing can be certain until they make the actual announcement.

With that said, even if Starcraft II comes out this year, there's absolutely no guarantee that Diablo III will be their next game.

The fact remains that World of Warcraft remains an extremely popular title, and the possibility for the release of yet another, perhaps final expansion pack is almost certainly guaranteed.

Beyond World of Warcraft, Blizzard has already announced plans for two Starcraft II expansion packs which...
