well, was just messing around on the PS3 tonight and noticed when i got done watching A Scanner Darkly,Â that i was not logged into the PSN.Â Â
after trying to connect i received a message saying that a system update was available, went to the update section and noticed that v1.70 firmware being out!
hmm. this one sure sneaked in under the radar, no sites i could see knew or saw this update. i wonder if this update will resolve the problems that some were having after updating to v1.60 and system freezing problems (ie my own).
i'll post some vids and comments on what i see.Â maybe we'll get our XMB wishes!! (http://www.petitiononline.com/ps3xmb/petition.html)Â :P
links/embedded video after my update completes and youtube uploads are finished!
update: headed over to http://www.ps3fanboy.com/2007/04/18/firmware-1-70-is-available-for-your-downloadationism/Â and found out the updates.
iÂ guessÂ the update allows PS3Â owners to play the games on their PS3 they download (ie PSone games)Â , saved data will be transfered to PSP from PS3, and vibration features added for PS and PS2 connected accessories (ie dual shock controller via usb, etc).Â now i wonder if my own homebrewed PSone games will work. i'll let ya know after the update.
