PSN now down, PS3 Firmware 2.40 rumored for July release

330w ago - To quote Lestrade, Community Team Leader at the European PlayStation Forums:

PLAYSTATIONŽNetwork Downtime - Tuesday 24 June, 15:00-20:10 BST

The PLAYSTATION Network will be offline for 5 hours today from 3pm BST (4pm CEST) for maintenance work. It's pretty much all behind-the-scenes work and is, most definitely, not the 2.4 System Software update. Sorry, you need to wait a little longer for that one!

During this maintenance, the following online services may not be available:

- PSN account registration,
- PSN account sign-in,
- PSN account management,
- PlayStation Store purchases,
- online gaming, unless you are already logged in at 3pm
- forum login

In related news, self-proclaimed Sony employee Knight613 from GameFAQs states that PS3 Firmware v2.40 was supposed to come out on June 18th, but a bad error was found and needed fixing. Now the date is very early July (1st to 3rd), and the RC release is already ready... so it's just a matter of time.

To quote: 2.40 was supposed to come out June 18th actually... till they found a pretty bad error with the XMB and had to fix it. New date is supposedly July 2ndish,...
 

PS3 Dev Update: PS3 Firmware 2.36 Update Plugs Hole & More!

330w ago - A lot has gone on, and nothing has gone on lately. Let's start with the nothing part first since it's shorter... we really have no monumental progress to report at the moment. Why? Simple, everything the resident PS3 Devs are working on is still a work-in-progress... when there is news we will post it.

So what is the "a lot" part that has gone on lately? Mostly stuff that may eventually lead to newsworthy progress. I myself have recently acquired nearly 1GB of new Sony goodies to play with, and I have been spending much of my freetime examining a lot of the included documentation.

One interesting thing we recently found out is that Sony has released a NEW model PS3 TEST. It is the DECHJ00J/DECHJ00A. It is supported in SDK version 2.17 and later, and features a 40GB Hard Disk Drive, and two USB ports. Like its retail counterpart, it also lacks PS2 hardware, so it can not play PS2 games.

I've also been working with another PS3 Dev on getting ProDG running with TargetManager on my Debug PS3. Up until now, we have been stuck with a neutered version and unfortunately the PS3 ProDG is unlike the old PS2 version, where you can just bypass the License Check and Program Terminate, or use the defunct ZENiTH generator.

Instead, ProDG for PS3 is similar to the PSP version utilizing a client...

331w 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.

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