288w ago - PlayStation Network Operations Director Eric Lempel shared the following details on PS3 Firmware 2.60 today:

Hi, everyone, we have a system software updates for PS3 coming soon, and I wanted to provide you with a sneak peak at the details.

The PS3 firmware update (v2.60) is designed primarily to enhance the system's media capabilities. The key feature is a new Photo Gallery application, which delivers a suite of tools for sorting through and displaying your digital photo collection.

Digital pictures can be organized in groups according to various criteria, including the camera used to take the photos, the event date and time, colors in the photos, as well as the number, ages, or facial expressions of the people pictured.

Here's a video walk-through of firmware 2.60 that shows off some of what the Photo Gallery can do.





You can also create slideshows set to music and build photo playlists with an easy-to-use interface. The Photo Gallery application will need to be installed separately from the XMB after you update your PS3's firmware.

To install the Photo Gallery application, go to the Photo section on the XMB, select Photo Gallery and press the X button.

Final Fantasy VII Limited Edition PlayStation 3 to Arrive in April

50°
289w ago - Square-Enix has revealed the first image of the limited edition Final Fantasy VII PS3.

Pictured below, you'll see the Final Fantasy VII style PS3. Dubbed "Cloud Black," this PS3 will come individually numbered and packaged with a Blu-ray version of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete.

Of course, the real appeal of getting Advent Children Complete on Blu-ray is the Final Fantasy XIII demo. Oddly enough, Advent Children will have the option of English voices, but it'll lack the option for English subtitles if watching in Japanese.

Also, the Final Fantasy XIII demo will not feature English subtitles or voice work. Too bad.

Complete package details:

- "Cloud Black" HDD 160GB PS3
- Final Fantasy XIII Trail Version Set (FFXIII demo)
- Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete Blu-ray disc

The Cloud Black PS3 will come with a 160GB HDD and release on April 16th for 49,980 yen ($550 give or take a bit). No word on an oversea release, though.
