  • thanks! next ps3 update coming??

  • Cool. RSS podcast downloading support for PS3 please?

  • I hope the PS3 update comes soon and hopefully will add something a lot of people want instead of just software stability. >_>

  • YAY!!!!

    I WANT STABILITY!

  • I absolutely LOVE “some features”. I’m so glad to have more stability now.

  • Eric, any news on a new PS3 update?

  • Can we see a Hulu or Pandora application for ps3 sometime soon? Please??

  • Are we getting Ad Hoc party in the states? I REALLY want that feature. If we are getting it, will it be out by Monster Hunter Unite’s release?

  • Wow, Mr. Lempel’s ‘announcements’ have now degraded to a mere 2 sentences, conveying no useful information whatsoever.

    We won’t here from him again until the next PS3 firmware ‘announcement’, which will probably be a sentence and a half.

    Maybe he’s using the lame text chat from fw 2.70 to post to this blog and can only input 35 characters ;-)

  • is the video store supposed to be up already on the psp, i cant get to it on my

  • Any PS3 updates coming?

  • Oh, like the awesome feature where if i accidentally hold the power thing for too long and my psp shuts off any and all progress in my videos and or podcasts gets wiped? or the awesome feature where if god forbid i’m running more than window in the web browser my system will hard lock for up t but not greater than twenty minutes? or the sweet feature where i can never get remote play to work from anywhere ever?

    you know, i think we’re all starting to resent these stupid firmware updates that do all but waste our time just because you guys get pirated more than an african cruise line and have to patch up your sinking ship every three weeks because they got bigger guns. geeze.

    thanks for text chat on the PS3 though, that was neat.

  • Where’s teh PS3 luv? :(

  • @3
    That’s what I’m waiting for too. And a better way to skip to a specific part of an audio file for when I accidentally stop a long podcast.

  • thank you for that eye opening informative look at the firmware

  • guys, the chance of a PS3 firmware update is pretty high. Wait another few weeks.

  • yes just wait

  • :( my car was broken into and my psp stolen today, no update for me. Guess now i have to wait for the go to release…

  • Gotta agree. I would love to see a Pandora update. You could charge me a one time fee of $50 and I would still jump on it.

  • Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora, Pandora…….Sorry, just wanted to make sure you heard me.

  • I’ll download it.

    CROSS GAME CHAT NAOOOOO PLOXXXX

  • Need PS3 update with features please.

  • Yes that’s nice but, you know what the fans really want is a ps3 firmware update.

  • So pretty much it just renders homebrew apps moot for a week until DarkAlex cracks it again.

  • I just want WMV and Flash player support please!

  • Does this update magically shave $50 off of the PSP Go price AND make it sprout a 2nd analog stick?

    Hmmm, I doubt it.

  • Posting for a request to add background downloading or queued downloading for the PSP.

  • I would love to see a massive – and I mean MASSIVE – security patch for the PSP.

  • Thanks for going into such detail, I’m glad I know now what issues are being solved.

  • Wow looks like we’re getting christmas early!

  • This is great news. Next up is the PS3 Update!

  • Translation: security update to foil PSP homebrew hackers.
