    BREAKING NEWS
    [​IMG]
    Right on schedule -- or a day early, depending on your time zone -- Sony has unleashed version 3.50 of its PS3 firmware. And as previously promised, it's got 3D Blu-ray movie playback with it. According to the Official US PlayStation blog, there's also some added Facebook integration and new methods of grief reporting. We're still updating and will let you know what else we might unearth.[/p]

    Post will be updated when more info comes.

    UPDATE:
    3D TV works fine as long as the HDMI setting is on "Auto" it will detect your 3DTV and switch to the correct mode just like it has for gaming since the update that enabled 3D functionality there

    Well, I find this interesting.

    Something else PS3 hackers should look out for.

    it always updates to add stuff

    heard it adds some facebook crap, not sure what it is, i think looking under account management it has to do with gaming events posted to your wall (something like trophy achievements being posted) ... hmm well at least they're adding things now,rather than just fixing bug issues


    no doubt the XMB has come a long long way since it's launch in 2006 (who remembers that in order to change a game you had to turn off the PS3 [​IMG])

    Quoted from my rom/forum site and anybody looking to use psjailbreak, I advise you not to update your PS3 firmware until the jailbreakers are updated.

    Same here, I think my PS3 will die virgin (as my gamecube did). Anyway, DeathSpank 2 is awesome!

    While Sony is adding new stuff from most of their update, Nintendo is adding none other than going after homebrew and piracy.
