Firmware 3.00 Arrives With PS3 Slim, Brings Avatars, Status Updates And More

Picture 1

Those who already own PS3s may feel a bit left out of the Gamescom announcements (as seen on the lovely Nowgamer) if they have no intention/ability to upgrade to the new model Slim. But fear not, for everybody will be included in the festival of newness Sony announced, as the old-fashioned fat console owners are to be presented with a brand spanking new, shiny firmware – version 3.00, no less.

While this does come pre-installed on Slim consoles, the rest of us will have to download it as normal. But instead of the usual “compatibility issues” being solved, we’re going to get a fair bit of bang for our free (mandatory) download. Status updates, avatars, dynamic themes and a host of other bits and bobs – including a more sexified XMB – await.

Granted, it won’t change the world. But it’s sure to make things bit easier and a bit more enjoyable, as well as adding that personalised touch that people seem to like so much. Check out the PlayStation Blog for more details of the launch, which is currently pencilled in for “soon”.
