Rumor: PS3 3.0 Firmware Details Leaked? Change As Big As NXE?

PS3 Firmware 3.0 Rumor

It looks like the Xbox 360 isn’t the only console in town that can completely reinvent their system via a system update.  VG247 is reporting that they might have learned of the upcoming 3.0 firmware for the Playstation 3.  Here’s a rundown of some of the things we could expect from the 3.0 update:

  • Reputation System — Players will be able to give each other reputation based on how they perform in games
  • Grief Reporting System — Do you not enjoy being told that your mom is a dirty whore? Tired of hearing kids screaming into the microphone for attention?  Well, soon you can report those griefers to Sony and they’ll make sure they get a talking to.
  • Background Patch Download — This should have been a no-brainer a long time ago, but it seems like Sony might finally allow us to download those pesky patches in the background.
  • HDMI & Digital Optical Audio Out Together! — If you know what that means, then you were definitely looking forward to that update.

All in all, it looks like a solid beginning to the 3.0 update, but if it’s being touted as significant as the Xbox 360’s NXE, then there’s gotta be some other ground-breaking updates to come to the 3.0 firmware.

  1. SCEA has not kept there so called promises..And example would have to be there is still no way to play my own MP3’s in HOME and the PSN I hate it that Sony had to release a $599 dollar console and hm almost 4 years later I still can’t play my music in the games that I bought and I still can’t CROSS IN GAME CHAT LIKE THE 360 has.! To me that’s a waste of time and Effort..
    Now I don’t know who to believe anymore..Hey at least the 360 has been keeping up with the consumers demands! If I was in charge of the PSN I would boot out all these filthy mouth kids on the PSN Oh I forget they like to use cheat devices its called a lag switch! they use this in all the online games!… Nice job Sony for not taking any action before it got out of hand! If there is no really big update I am afraid I will stop with the PS3..
