Firmware 2.76 is now live. Official word is “This is a minor update that improves the playback quality of some PS3 format software.” Ya, we’ve heard that before.

    There is rumor that another firmware update is coming at E3, guess we’ll see.

    One thing I’ve heard that this update did is when you compare trophies it’s faster now. Any truth to that? I haven’t tried it yet.

    Today I started my playstation 3 and saw the update. Oc course I installed the new update 2.76. After that I started Call of duty: World at War. I’ve have completed the half game on level Veteran. But after the install all my singelplayer progress was lost. So watch out for this update. Btw..all my trophis were still left.

    I started the Wolverine game right after the update, no issues here.

    My favourite update request would be to play music in-game. ;)
    Or save a screenshot / video of in-gme footage…I suppose that’ll be taking it a little to far I guess. But it would be pretty fun. :D

    Please guys, think about what we need!

    We need an update so that we can use NFTS-drives as external drives for our PS3.

    I downloaded and installed the latest update, to bad it does NOT fix any of the random Fallout3 FREEZE UPS!

    Luckily there is autosave…

    Fallout3 on PS3 has a level 20 CAP, how lame!

    i hope they make a voice chat which you can use in-game, so if 2 people were playing different games they could still talk to eachother using voice chat. i like the idea of recording in-game footage that would be awsome

    i hope they make a firm wear where you can have an lcd tv or a stereo sysytem in ps3 home and either play your saved ps3 music on the stereo or play movies on your hard drive on yor lcd tv in yor apartment so u can entertaine guest in your crib now that would be hott

    why dont sony make an external part that you can plug into the ps3 to play ps2 games

    They do have this external hardware but the best part is you don’t even have to waste a port on your PS3 to use it…

    It’s called a PS2…

    Or instead of waiting and begging sony to bring the price down, you could have bought a PS3 earlier, which DID have PS2 compatibility…

    Me, i’m GLAD i’m an early adopter!

    Since downloading 2.76, I have a problem with DVD and Bluray playback where the video feed freezes and the sound keeps going. Anybody else have this problem?
