PS3 Firmware 3.10 is live!

avatar_37Well not to long ago I put up a story about the new things in 3.10  If you didn’t see that story well read on.

This update will add Facebook features which are as follows

  • Update Facebook status with PSN purchases
  • Update Facebook status with trophies earned
  • Update Facebook status with game events

All these options are something you can turn on or off depending on what you want to do.

If you have them on then Facebook will update your status depending on what you have on.

Also with this update you get the option to change the gray box on your friends list for your PSN ID to a different color that will display for the others on your friends list as well.

This update is a simple one so not to big a deal, and personaly I don’t want to have my PS3 update my facebook for me and bug everyone of my facebook freinds with that stuff.

PS3 Firmware 2.70 Coming Sooner Than You Think

Call this one a rumor until I’m able to cite a source, but somebody told me that Sony is poised to release firmware 2.70 for PS3 within the next 24 hours.

This fits with other rumblings we’ve heard, and reading between the lines of other news stories. Resistance 2 is getting patched tomorrow, and it’s been confirmed that the patch requires a firmware update to utilize features that aren’t currently available. While the firmware release window isn’t all that surprising, what it (supposedly) includes is.

Rumored features of firmware 2.70 include enhanced voice messaging, faster in-game XMB access/Trophy retrieval, background synching of Trophies, and multi-user simultaneous logins for games that support it (Resistance 2 will use it).

If half of that list proves to be true… I’ll be happy.

We’ll know for sure VERY soon.
