    Re: When is the next PS3 update due??

    Not sure when, but if they are leaving it this long then maybe this might be the biggie,

    found this though.

    In a recent interview with MCV UK, Ray Maguire of SCEUK revealed some very interesting information regarding the PlayStation 3. The PlayStation 3 has sold over a million units in the UK and has sold faster than the PSOne and PS2. He also revealed that PS3 Firmware 2.40 will include "in-game communication" and is expected in the summer. You read right, he mentioned Firmware 2.40!

    Ray Maguire said:

    "Achieving one million PS3 sales faster than both PSOne and PlayStation 2 is even more gratifying considering PS3 is a premium product introduced at a premium price.

    Our momentum will continue with the introduction of in-game communication in the summer, firmware update 2.4 and the strongest line-up of games through our third party partners and our own studios. I d personally like to thank our trade and business partners for helping us on the start of the PS3 journey."

    Blu-Ray Profile 2.00 (BD-Live) will also be released on the PS3 in the summer. It looks like the summer firmware version will be the biggest update this year. Lets hope firmware 2.20 and 2.30 have something new to offer too.

    Its been 3 months now since the last update....I just want in game chat and XMB access! That should have been in from the start. I was hoping it was coming this month in 2.20 but doesn't look like it from gtechs post
