PlayStation3 Update

PS3 Update

Few minutes ago, I received email from young friend from Dubai reminding me to update my PlayStation3 system. Version 2.6 release on January 21st, 2009.

I will update it as soon as I got home to see how better it should be.

Some Notices taken from PlayStation official site:

Version 2.6 Features:

Hopefully things will go well. Few  things I did not like about PS3 are Noise (Fan) and Game pricing. For the first issue, it is annoyance, and remind me of old day of iMac G5. (PS3 fitted with PowerPC guts, and I assumed it is something close to what iMac G5 offered), and the second issue, huh... what can I say? Luckily in Asia, you could swap the game data (illegally) with small fees at some game shop.
