why 2.36 first
means 2.40 won't be here for a while
"You can expect us to share all of the official details shortly."
Hopefully they will give us a release date as well.
Now, I don't have a PS3, but plan on buying one. Does this mean I'll be able to access the features of the XMB (music, photo, video) while in a game?
"other new enhancements"
Well they've written "In Game XMB Access". Which leads me to believe, its full access of everything on the XMB. If it were just the friends list, they would have put "IN Game Communication".

Well, from what i've heard, 2.40 isnt stable enough to be publically released and seeing as Sony have already done this PS1 Stability thing, they may aswell release it now.

2.36 is a push for better compatibility, this change is already reflected in 2.40 however due to the server side issues the minor patches got shifted to 2.36 so theyre resolved until 2.40's release, which isn't all that far away at all now :)
I was just about to post this.
Looks like I was a little late huh? Anyways, I personally think they should just hold off on that 2.36 and just include it in 2.40, I mean, there isn't much we can do if we find the hole and they patch it up with 2.4 right anyways, right?
i was right! i knew this was what they were going to do.
Finally! And its not from those other un-trusted sources, its actually from the PSBlog. Well, I just can't wait for it now. 2.40FW will be complete, and the next thing that we need is.. Playstation Home. >.>"
For real Abey? I just turned off my PS3 right when you posted it.. >.>"
aw crap. I was just about to log into MGO when the message popped up.
I'll go download it when im not too lazy. I'd download it if it was 2.4 but noo! they had to minus .04 from 2.40.
Mohaas: hows MGO? I'm gonna grab MGS4 later this month.
Very good, on larger maps. Smaller ones it's just a case of I see you, and then you're dead. On larger ones you have a chance to hide.

Haha, I got unlazier, and started downloading this update, its pretty quick.
@ Adiuvo: I just went into the MGS4 thread after I posted that, and saw that you posted the same thing. But for now, I'm stuck with COD4 until July 4(my birthday) :)
I'm trying hard to stay on topic.
Yeah. It's a quick download as well.
