Sony has detailed a forthcoming PlayStation 3 firmware update that will add various new features, including PlayStation Plus, enhancements between your PlayStation Network and Facebook accounts, and more. In case you've missed earlier reports, PlayStation Plus is a new paid subscription service that provides access to exclusive extras, such as free games, betas, special themes, and access to Qore. The existing free online platform will remain unaffected.

Isn't that power save setting already in the PS3... either that or I have mistaken that.

Also I'm really curious as to what PlayStation Plus has to offer. I just got a batch of new PS3 games so I'm ready to pick up my PS3 since I haven't played in like a month :)


I thought the ps3 already had that power save feature also. but maybe the time wasnt adjustable until now?.

hello ...

the time wasn't adjustable indeed. for the other features, looks nice & PSN plus add a lot of value, won't go for it yet, i need to see what i need & what are my priorities, but someday for sure if it's available for my zone.

I really love the automatic background update feature.

I don't see it mentioned in the article, so I'm going to assume they still did not add cross-game chat or a party system. Tsk tsk, Sony. Enough with the gimmicky features! Just give us something useful for once
