Insider leaks potential PS3 Firmware 2.40 details

250°
323w ago - All of the following information has come from an insider I, Sev1512, am in contact with and everything isn't 'set in stone'. Things can change a lot, especially when it involves Sony.

If any of the information is wrong, its because plans have changed and not because it was made up.

PS3 Firmware 2.40 should include:

- Access your XMB chat features from any game.
- 2D trophies from the XMB where 70% of current titles will support them straight away.
- Video Coding and groundwork for the Movie Store (Out Sept)

My insider notes however that not all of the above will definitely make it before Metal Gear Solid comes out.

Oh, and Online Co-op for Super Stardust HD is in the works.
 

PS3 Firmware 2.35 sneaks YouTube functionality in!

500°
323w ago - Sony claimed that all Firmware 2.35 did was "improve stability of some PS3 titles". Well, it turns out that the YouTube compatibility is one of those secret updates that occasionally make it unannounced into a PlayStation 3 firmware update.

The functionality was added via Version 2.35 of the firmware. At the moment, Mainichi Issyo (the crazy cat game downloadable only on off the Japanese store) is the only title to do so.

Videos are captured at 320x240, 30 frames per second and saved in an MPEG-4 file at 768kbps. Sound is recorded at 64kbps in AAC format. The maximum clip length is ten minutes.

Upon selecting to finish their recording sessions, players are given the choice of either saving their clips to the hard disk or uploading them to YouTube. Choose the latter option, and you're prompted for your YouTube user name and password.

The game then uploads the clip on the spot, showing a progress bar while you wait for the upload to complete.

324w ago - PlayStation 3 Firmware Update 2.35 is now available for download via Network Update or below. From the PlayStation Blog, Firmware 2.35 simply improves the stability of certain PS3 titles, according to PSN director Eric Lempel.

The list of titles affected by the update went unnamed, but Lempel did note that it has nothing to due with the lock-up issues a number of PS3 owners are experiencing with Grand Theft Auto IV.

Rumor: New PS3 Firmware to fix GTA IV issues on 60 GB model

50°
324w ago - According to a poster named intimidtr3 on the US PlayStation Boards, 2K games Tech Support have said that Sony are looking into producing a new firmware just for the earlier version of the PS3 to fix the GTA IV issues.

To quote: Hello Xxxxx,

There is an issue with the launch edition of the PS3 and this game, the game was checked over and passed as 100% compatible with the current version of the PS3, of course the earlier version has custom chips which mean that it is a very different animal from the current PS3 on sale.

Sony are aware of this difference and are looking into producing a new firmware just for the earlier version of the PS3.

Kind Regards,

2K games Tech Support
