Now LIVE via PSN Thursday update, will be Firmware 2.70.   It’s an update many have waited for since it will feature an all new Text Chat feature system.  If you’ve used messages to chat back and forth with your friends on your PS3, you knew it was quite cumbersome.  Text Chat allows for easier chatting during gameplay as well as waiting in the PSN lobby.

Firmware 2.70 Features:

  • Chat with up to 15 online friends
  • Join up to 3 chat rooms
  • Text Chat while playing PS3 games

Friends list on the XMB (XrossMediaBar)

  • Sort your friends via their online status
  • Attach larger files to the messages you send to your friends (file size will increase from 1MB to 3MB)

Video delivery service on PlayStation Store

  • Video files you’ve purchased from the PlayStation Store can be backed up to an external storage device and then restored to PS3’s internal hard drive for playback – so you can clear up space on your hard drive and then restore the video anytime in the future
  • Videos you’ve purchased for PSP (PlayStation Portable) system can now be transferred to PS3 for playback
