Default PSN 2.7 update

From PSN blog, this is what is goign to be included into firmware update 2.7.

Quote:
Hi everyone, we’re adding some great new features with the next PS3 firmware update (v2.70) that will continue to enhance your connected experience on the PS3. The 2.70 update brings a new Text Chat feature that enables you to communicate online with your PlayStation Network friends. Now, you’ll be able to chat with up to 15 online friends using the Wireless Keypad, on-screen keyboard, or other compatible keyboard peripherals. Not only can you chat with your friends instantly, but you can also access Text Chat while playing PS3 games and even participate in up to three chat rooms at once.

In addition to Text Chat, we’ve added a few more enhancements:

Friends list on the XMB (XrossMediaBar)

Sort your friends via their online status
Attach larger files to the messages you send to your friends (file size will increase from 1MB to 3MB)
Video delivery service on PlayStation Store

Video files you’ve purchased from the PlayStation Store can be backed up to an external storage device and then restored to PS3’s internal hard drive for playback – so you can clear up space on your hard drive and then restore the video anytime in the future
Videos you’ve purchased for PSP (PlayStation Portable) system can now be transferred to PS3 for playback
So we get cross game chat, and we can backup video files. Woots!

Although its text chat..
And video's are not available in canada yet..
And I have never used anything else mentioned here so maybe its not so Woots after all!

Unless you don't have a spare keyboard nor keypad.

not at all. i refuse to type on anything while playing a game if i intend to have more than a one sentence communication with another player.

i don't even like typing messages on XBL, and almost always use the voice message feature.

Oh, I don't use text or voice chat. When I want to play a game with a friend I use MSN.

text chat just seems like a ploy to sell more of their official wireless keypads. Kinda lame but i guess you can't argue with free updates.
