293w 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.

The 2.60 update also includes:

Final Fantasy VII Limited Edition PlayStation 3 to Arrive in April

50°
293w 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.
 

Global PlayStation 3 Releases for the Week of January 18, 2009

50°
293w ago - EA continues its January release schedule with Skate 2 which, no doubt, will be a bit better than Lord of the Rings: Conquest turned out to be. Hopefully.

Asia continues to play catch-up, as ever, with Prince of Persia and WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2009. Here's the full release list:

US Games
• Skate 2

EU Games
• Skate 2

Asian Games
• Skate 2
• Prince of Persia
• WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2009

PS3 games are region free. Not that it matters this week, but if you're feeling particularly barmy you could always import a version of Skate 2 from abroad. It'll still work.

Though any downloadable content would need to be downloaded from the appropriate region's PSN Store, so it's probably best not to. Release dates are constantly subject to change, so confirm with your local retailer before you leave the house.
 

Rumor: Mass Effect Trilogy Coming to the PlayStation 3 Console

50°
293w ago - SecondStoryGamer (linked above) is reporting a 'fairly reliable source' close to EA has told them that the sequel of Mass Effect and future versions in the series will be available on Sony's PS3 as well as the XBox 360 and PC.

Apparently, EA decided to go multi-platform because of the state of the economy, and they want to squeeze as much money as possible out of their games.

To quote: A fairly reliable source close to Electronic Arts tells us that the sequel (and subsequent iterations) will be available the PlayStation 3 as well as the Xbox 360 and PC. According to our source, EA decided to make the series multiplatform mostly due to the "the economic outlook".

Our source claims that because of the current state of the economy, Electronic Arts is looking to squeeze as much money from its portfolio of games as it possibly can. Obviously, making Mass Effect 2 and 3 multiplatform would increase their sales, as the game would be available to more people.
