PS3 Firmware 2.70 Released

System software update 2.70 for the PS3 is now available.

The system software update can be downloaded by selecting System Update icon under the Setting column on XMB (Xross Media Bar) – and is completely free.

Key features include -

Text chat: The update makes it easy to chat: just set up a chat room, select anyone from your Friends list and invite them in - they’ll see an icon in the corner of their screen and know they’re wanted in your chat room. Up to 16 people can join the same room to chat using a controller, a connected keyboard or a Wireless Keypad. You can start a chat even while you're halfway through a game.

Dynamic Normaliser for music: This reduces the difference in volume levels between tracks and makes for a smooth listening experience all the way.

Better control of the Internet: Find a game's icon in your menu and select 'Internet Search'. You’ll be taken online to search for information about it. The 2.70 update also allows you to cut and paste text from your Internet Browser as well as send message attachments up to 3MB in size.

Language fixes: If you’re Polish, Greek, Czech, Slovak, and Turkish, you’ll particularly like the 2.70 update: it makes the necessary additions to your Internet Browser that enables you to read the full range of letters and characters from your national alphabet.
