    ps3 Rumor: Full list of updates for firmware 2.00 released?

    via PS3 Fanboy


    One of the regular posters on the official PlayStation Boards recently posted a supposed leak of the full list of updates for the PlayStation 3 release of firmware 2.00. The poster has a pretty high-level of 'forum street cred,' having released information on previous firmware releases that turned out to be valid, but we're still a little skeptical. After the initial posting, she and SCEA edited her post to nothingness - but SCEA has allowed the quoted firmware update features to stay up in the replies. The source of the list was suppose to have come from a Sony Press Site which required credentials - info not there anymore. Unfortunately, no time frame given for release of the update, but it's implied that it's soon.

    Major updates:
    • XMB™ (XrossMediaBar) is now accessible during gameplay. [No further information given.]
    • Wallpaper feature has been added.
    • Additional visualizations have been added. [Nice!]
    A ton of little tweaks are also included, listed in the standard obtuse terminology Sony always uses for their firmware update lists. You can see the complete list below.



    The PLAYSTATION®3 system software version 2.00 update includes the following:
    • Users
      • You can now password-protect user accounts.

      • [Photo Settings] has been added as an option.
      • [PS / PS2 Settings] has been added as an option.
      • [RSS Channel Settings] has been added as an option.
      • [Sample Rate] has been added to [Audio CD Import] under [Music Settings].
      • [Screen Saver] has been expanded under [Display Settings].
      • The method of selecting an output resolution has been changed in [Video Output Settings] under [Display Settings].
      • [Theme Settings] has been added as an option.
      • [Zero Unused Disk Space] has been added as an option under [System Settings] > [Format Utility].

    • Music
      • Additional visualizations have been added.
      • CD information can now be entered.

    • Video
      • Files can now be played sequentially.
      • Three-speed fast forward and fast reverse has been added as a feature.
      • You can now select [Zoom] under [Screen Mode] when playing video files saved on the hard disk or storage media.*.

    sounds quite nice to me...
    i would have appreciate a little update on video compatibility (wmv,divx,mkv maybe?) but it still adds some great features. i still wonder why they didn't implement wallpaper in th first place... will i update? that is still a good question!

    Original website here. I can already confirm that the info from Sony Press center isn't listed anywhere. So it must have been removed/posted too early, or psu made the whole thing up.

    I hope this is true, and it isn't much to ask for. I would find it far less believable if it said something outrageous, but this update reminds me of the PSP 2.00 update. I, too, would love to see support of WMV playback. I don't understand how the PSP can have it but not the PS3.

    This sounds almost too good to be true...

    I am hoping that it is true, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was a hoax.

    yeah indeed.

    sony have non-stop said that his was meant to be some sort of media center.

    I personally think it should support all video files.

    This seems pretty real to me, or if it is fake it really IS a good job, because it's written in the tradition Sony we-post-next-firmware's-features style.
    But I think it's real. And not unreachable.

    I'd like to see this implemented as well, but if Sony can't/won't they should at least give us a converter on the PS3 to convert the files to a supported format. At least then we don't need to use converters on computer, USB thumb-drives or memory sticks to transfer converted movies to the PS3.

    Apparently the update may NOT be true. The original poster of said information on the Official Playstation Boards has indicated that her account was hijacked when the information was posted (as in, she didn't post it, but someone who stole her account did).

    Whether or not she is using this as a cover to get away from forum badmouthing for posting undocumented information, is not certain, but I will let you decide that.

    To put an end to the now titled "Conspiracy", I would like to state that I'm souly and completely sorry for whatever this may have caused. As a side note, PLEASE don't ever take something posted (whether by me, or anyone) as fact unless it is provided by the creator's of such software/hardware (SCE).

    Once again I'm sorry for the misunderstandings, and taking precautions so it will never happen again.
