This article mentions a bunch of things we want from the next firmware update for the PS3 from Sony. Things like the following:
- Background Downloads
- Screen Savers
- Music Playing while Doing Stuff
- See PC Files from PS3
- Guitar Hero Support
This is just a small sampling. I hope that Sony is listening, because we all want things like background downloads and better networking support. Is Sony working on these things? Or others?
So just what is the competition up to? You can see some Halo 3 screenshots at the link below. They look quite nice, actually. Some of them look more like something from Unreal Tournament, I’m looking forward to playing the game at my friends’ places, because I’m sure they’ll both be picking it up. Halo 2 was a lot of fun, and we especially had a lot of fun playing King of the Hill.
Like I promised, today is Tuesday and I’m announcing the winners of the HDMI cable contest brought to you by this site and eHDMI.com. The winners were chosen with a random number generator, but their names both happen to start with a ‘D’. Here they are:
Congratulations to both of you. I will be forwarding your e-mail addresses on to eHDMI.com, who will take care of contacting you for you shipping information. Congrats, I think this was a fun contest!
Yesterday TerraSoft announced the availability of Yellow Dog Linux v5.0 for the PS3.
THE WAIT IS OVER!
Six months of design, engineering, integration, and testing has culminated in
the finest release from Terra Soft to date. Designed, not just assembled,
Yellow Dog Linux v5.0 featuring E17 is immediately available via YDL.net
Enhanced accounts for your PLAYSTATION(R)3.
I’m still undecided about Linux. I have to see a real reason to install Linux on my PS3 before I bother to do so. How about you guys? Linux? Or no Linux?
