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

350°
348w 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...

348w ago - As expected, Sony has now officially released PS3 Firmware Update v2.00!

Although it's not yet available from their Web site interface, it's downloadable via Network Update and also from the direct links below, and props to vah for the news:

Download: PS3 Firmware Update v2.00 (US) / PS3 Firmware Update v2.00 (EU)
 

PS3 2.0... Finally some Official Information?

50°
349w 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

PS3 Firmware Update v1.94 available now!

349w 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!
