UPDATE: The PS3 Firmware (v3.00) update is now live. You can use this update to upgrade your system software to version 3.00.

Just in time for the official launch of the 120 GB PlayStation 3, PS3 Firmware (v3.00) will be available shortly. As detailed during gamescom 09, 3.00 will introduce a number of great features, including “What’s New,” a redesigned status indicator and Friends List, and support for new avatars and dynamic themes.

We look forward to your feedback once the update goes live.

i still think tht this is a useless update cause it doesnt add any new useful significant features but it just adds more appeal…

woot!

It would be great too if you could give us ANY info on the status on cross-game chat, might aswell since you know there will be like 400 comments asking for it haha.

Anyway, looking forward to new Avatars (im soo sick of the ones we have) and animated themes will be great.

MY only question I have at this point is, will there be any free animated themes that we can use to try this thing out? And I don’t mean that stupid “Mustache Man” theme.

+ Lambrick on August 31st, 2009 at 6:10 pm said:

31

+ NITROWOLF_2 on August 31st, 2009 at 6:10 pm said:

Wow i cannot wait for the animated themes.
questions.

1. Will us user be able to create animated themes like we could with standard themes?

2. any possibilities that you giuys snuck in something extra like you have in other FW updates?

It feels like Sony is playing the console market on godmode – absolutely unstoppable.

The Slim is sold out all over the place

Graphically the PS3 is an entire generation ahead

Games the PS3′s exclusives are gigantic in number and unparalled in quality

Price is now not an issue – even Fing poor people can afford a PS3 now

Blu-Ray continues to overtake DVD faster than DVD did VHS

And Home is up to what? 8 million users already and massive support from publishers and developers

Thank you Sony! Can’t wait for the update to go live.

Well I still think the XMB could be a little better even if its 2D. I ‘ve seen some themes that was better. I like this update but I still think it could of been better.

+ DARK_JAK_911 on August 31st, 2009 at 6:12 pm said:

Will we be getting the LBP animated theme for free in this update? I ask because when custom themes were first shown, Air Paint was the one you demonstrated. Since you demonstrated animated themes with the LBP animated theme, wouldn’t it seem right for us to get that? :)

+ EvoAnubis on August 31st, 2009 at 6:12 pm said:

“1. Will us user be able to create animated themes like we could with standard themes?”

No. The dynamic themes are created via the SDK, so unless you happen to be a game developer, you don’t have the required tools.

dynamic themes…woooh

Ny_beast 24 Sony can’t do cross game chat until they find a way to get around the M$ patent for it.
