Default just got my ps3 40gb at gamestop

hello all just got back from my local gamestop. i went in to ask the guy behind the counter if i could buy a presell for the ps3 40 gb w/spidey blu ray. he got on the computer to check inventory i thought then said hold on a second,he went in back and came out with a brown box when he opened it was 2 brand new ps3 40gb limited edition spider man 3 playstations. needless to say i didnt ask any questions about if he should be selling me it now i thought it wasnt supposed to get sold untill 11-2-07 but anyhow i have mine hooked up and checked the software version and its only v1.92 i thought the 40gb would come with 2.0 on it.watching spiderman now on my 46 inch mits 1080 lcd and it is awesome. im totally forever blu!guess those of us who got and gets the 40gb model will have to wait for the firmware to make these 1.1 compliant they are not out of the box.

Do you feel like cracking it open and taking some pictures of the bare motherboard to confirm/disprove that there are indeed GPU and CPU based on 65 nm process? (die will be visibly shrunk compared to old pictures of the board)

Did you try any SACD to see if it supports it? like the 60G & 80G version?

enjoy!

FW 2.0 isn't out yet. Why would you think this unit would have it?

because the units street date release isnt untill 11-2-07 officially and the mandate that all blu-ray devices and new sku #s after 10-31 must be 1.1 compliant. i was hopeing that this would be 1.1 compliant out of the box and have the 2.0 update on it to make it that way,if the 2.0 even offers the ps3 owner this upgrade im not getting my hopes up. i think we will not get a 1.1 update untill the first movie with 1.1 features hits the shelves. thats my hunch!we will get 1.1 update just might be a while...
