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.
