PlayStation 3 Firmware 2.80 Coming Soon? [Update: Now Live] | PS3Blog.net

The guys over at TheGamerAccess.com, was looking at the SCEA press site and found this – PS3 Debug Firmware Update 2.80. But nothing comes up when he clicked it. Matt Furtado @ examiner.com says this:

There are a few fixes to increase performance such as faster Trophy synchronization and faster XMB loads.

The update will have one new feature PS3 owners wants. Sadly, it won’t be immediately useful to us.

Mmm, wonder what that might be. Any thoughts?

Firmware 2.80 Release Tomorrow

    According to some insider…it could have to do with cross game voice chat which he said will be operational on version 3.0.

    he also gave some info on the Slims saying they will be bare bones minimum. No power switch in the back, no secondary OS installation. Cutting out alot of pork.

    Now that a good friend of mine has a PS3, I could really use that cross game voice chat!

    The only thing I want is new/custom avatars. Iam sick and tired of the same old ****. Every time there is a new game they should add them.

    I agree Trieloth. Although…I wouldn’t really want to get rid of Nathan Drake lol.

    Hello, I just wanted to provide everyone with a head’s up that the next PLAYSTATION 3 system software update (v2.80) will be coming soon. The playback quality of some PLAYSTATION 3 format software has been improved.

    from the playstation blog.

    IDK if that means all games will be able to upscale to 1080p or what, but there is no mention of anything to do with cross game chat and stuff like that.

  6. I installed it last night, but I let it install and shut down. So I haven’t tried it out yet. Notice any changes?

  7. You seem to have removed the content from the RSS feed and are just putting the headline. Unsubscribing!

  8. How, strange. I’ll look into that right now Nate.

    [Edit] Just curious how are you viewing the feed?

  9. Hey Nate, try this and see if it works, and when did you first notice this?

  11. Ok, still trying to track down the problem.
