  2. cant w8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111
  3. Another update designed to empty our wallets.

    Why doesn't Sony fix their present "Beta" programs and get someone to write some games which take full advantage of the PS3 console's capabilities.

    Or.......reduce their outrageous game prices.

    I hope it will finally allow us to play PS2 games on it.
  5. An update does not empty your wallet, you don't pay for updates you *****! It's an improvement to the system and it's software among other things like addons (goodies)....do you even own a PS?

    Guest #3, I think that Guest #2 was making a different point. Relax with the name calling and take a second to interpret what someone's argument is. Maybe he was arguing against the idea of adding a different component to the firmware, which would require increasingly difficult code for game developers to create games that would take advantage of the "upgrades"? Thus, keeping the price of games high?

    I'm just throwing that out there. ;P Don't be so quick to judge.
  7. A system update is not the same as a PStore update.
    You don,t pay for system updates...!
  8. developers do now understand the PS3 and are taking advantage of the System's power.
    An update does not deter in anyway from them being able to do so....

    Instead of being so readily able to talk about SONY this and SONY that. If you're not a developer then please don't make such wild unclear remarks @ SONY and check the Playstation site for more info.

    Guest #5 is most likely a cyber-stalker ex-boyfriend of Mirah B. Save his details and notify Mirah, Techspot.

    That also brings me the point that there are way too many guests on here that are able to spam the board.

    As for the PS3 update, I still haven't figured out what is so special about this update after downloading it. Does anyone know what they did other than basic improvements?
  10. Why download an update that's not yet released as far as i know. You may have downloaded the current 2.76...check the PS site.

    It has been released since noon est as far as I know. At least that's when I checked it. No, it wasn't 2.76

    Actually the ps3 system is just barely being used by developers to its potential. Constant updates does and will make it more difficult. It benefits the consumer for a better product, but its not helping the cost of the games to go down.

    Game prices going down? There are games that came out with the 360 and PS3 that still cost full price.

    This generation of gaming blows.
  15. u critics and the calm down guy are twats
  16. thus pol*****ic is being so quick to judge that's why we post our opinion FW 2.80 is another bit of FW that all adds up
