This update also correctly processes 2 Channel PCM as such via HDMI. No more 2 channel cds and sacds being improperly treated as 5.1. This allows proper bass management to finally be done in the AVR.

They've also added an approximate time count down for downloads over the progress bar.

Text chat... Wow. Welcome to the 90's internet.
Here's Penny Arcade's take on it, complete with comic.

Comic's not very funny - but yeah, text chat I feel could have been done better.

THey're usually in top comedy form, but that one was worthy of being mocked itself

I wish PS3's where only 100 bucks. I'm dying to play The Show 09 but I just can't justify 400 dollars for a half ass system. When I had my original 60gig it would take over an hour for any firmware update, wireless or connected, and when all you want to do is turn the damn thing on and play a game, and you can't because of a mandatory firmware upgrade.
