PS3 Releases: week of April 7, 2008
on the shelves
Nothing game wise, though there are a couple of guitars coming out, including one which claims to work for both Guitar Hero and Rock Band
in the store
– The next firmware update, 2.30, will go live on April 15th (Tuesday). The Blu Ray sound output will be improved to “DTS-HD Master Audio”, which I don’t know about and don’t really care about but is surely great.
The meat of the update is the revamped Playstion Network store. Sony put a video walk thru on their blog. It looks a lot better and quicker to navigate thru.
It looks like the store will update on Thursday, so you won’t be able to get GT Prolouge or the Warhawk expansion until later the week. I’d guess they want to allow everyone to upgrade ahead of time so the servers do not get killed with people trying to get everything at once.
