300°
322w ago - According to various reports, PS3 Firmware 2.36 is slated to hit within a week. One such report is from consoul of NeoGAF, linked above.

Much like the last few PSP updates, nothing too substantial will be added, aside from the usual security enhancements and compatibility fixes.

In case anyone missed it, a video of PS3 Firmware 2.40 in action is HERE.

Let's hope this is the last minor update before 2.40 hits.

Old But New News: PS3 Debug Firmware 2.30 Leaked!

300°
323w ago - This is a few days old, but since nobody submitted it here goes: Recently PS3 Debug Firmware Update v2.30 was posted on the Spanish Web site Elotrolado linked above.

The file size is 110 MB (115,403,104 bytes), and it is available from our PS3 Debug Firmware section or download it linked below, however, unless you own a PS3 Debug/TEST console the most it will allow you to do is use XVISTAMAN2005's Install Debug Firmware on a Retail PS3 method to browse the non-functional menus.

More to come, another resident PS3 Dev hinted he plans to share something he has been working on here shortly...
 

Video: A Peek At PS3 TEST Firmware 2.40!

50°
324w ago - The retail counterpart is rumored to be released during mid to late June, however, recently we had a chance to check out PS3 Debug/TEST Firmware v2.40 (116 MB - 122,268,311 bytes).

Below is a video of it in action, displaying some of the new features. As expected, we can confirm from 2.40 onwards, the system software can be called any time during the gameplay. It appears the in-game XMB does not work while playing PS2 titles, probably the same with PS1 titles as well although we didn't have a PS1 game handy to try.

The video is slightly better quality than the previous PS3 TEST SD Launcher 1.00 Video as video capture was used this time instead of our old camera... as there is no need to view the TEST PS3 in the video this round.

Anyway, more soon... enjoy the video!




 

Rumor: 40GB PS3 Backwards Compatibility via Firmware Update?

50°
324w ago - According to the German site linked above, a contact has revealed that the 40GB PS3 will soon be able to achieve backwards compatibility (in October).

It will do so through the use of 100% software emulation which will come by way of a new Firmware update. However, for the time being we'll label this as only a rumor.

To quote: In a discussion between us and Sony an import merchant from the USA, which import to Germany, we experienced that the 40GB is to become downward compatible variant of the PS3 in October PS2 plays. The whole is to go via firmware an update of.

Thus our contact man added joking that he had get rid now immediately all 60GB of models, which he has still on supply, since they would suffer a noticeable depreciation after publication of the firmware. This sounds quite plausible, since many seize to around some more expensive 60GB model only due to the downward compatibility, which with same functionality of the 40GB of model then would become void.

On the question, how this from technical side will look, us it was insured that this was to take place "to 100% by means of software emulation". According to the dealer is planned the firmware for October, to one hundred per cent it cannot assure this however.

We can likewise no warranty for the correctness...
