EL: Well basically in the updates that we do on the blog, it’s really to tell consumers this is what you can do today with your PS3, or in the next few days when we release a firmware update. It isn’t about diving into the tech and letting them know six months from now you’re going to see a game that may have better effects in a certain area because we’ve put this in such and such update. That’s not as digestible for the majority of consumers. …
I mean, there are consumers interested in the tech, and they can probably deep dive in developer forums …

Why can’t you just embed a link in the post for peeps that want the details. Especially if it’s an ‘Optional’ Patch – I mean I don’t want to do anything to my Launch PS3 I don’t Have to do- Cause it works great now, but there have been times… PS Sorry for the late post.

Hi Eric,

Photo Gallery should have a RANDOM option in the slide show so that photos in a slide show appear randomly. There is a option to select the music randomly but not the photos in a slide show. Every other slide show program I know has a Random option.

Please try to have this in your next release.

Many thanks

I would love to see an another update that allows user to play music off their system while playing a game, I went to a friends house today, and his Xbox 360 had this… and I just thought it was a cool idea.

Maybe Sony with their next update that there are a lot of people like myself who travel frequently and buy bluray discs would like to have a region-free ps3.

There is no point in the ps3 region-locked when there are so many players that are region-free on the market. I think that sony’s management should slap each other and wake up!!!!

Maybe Sony with their next update will realize that there are a lot of people like myself who travel frequently and buy bluray discs from all over.

There is no point in the ps3 being region-locked as there are so many players that are region-free on the market. I think that sony’s management should slap each other and wake up!!!!

Its decisions like these that force people towards piracy!
