Video: PS3 Slim Bootscreen, Coming in PS3 Firmware 3.0?


Sponsored Links
288w ago - Shortly following the PlayStation 3 Slim Teardown from earlier today comes a video of the new PS3 Slim's bootscreen.

It incorporates the new PlayStation 3 Slim font logo, and speculation has begun that it may be included in the PS3 Firmware 3.0 update that is scheduled to arrive on September 1, 2009.

If it's true, the question remains: Why in that version? Unless perhaps a core file changed... time will tell.

Those interested can check out the video below, courtesy of bichtri via YouTube.

If you would have done your research before making your 1st comment we wouldn't be having this argument

Actually the background isn't like that. The background on the slim in question was just the default moving wave thing. No extra sparkles floating around like in the 3.00 video. Also, note that in the slim video it doesn't have the updated area in the top right around the time.

Going back to the question at hand, couldn't Sony just give the slim the ability to overlay the new PS3 logo over the intro and have nothing to do with the firmware? Maybe the phat PS3s will never have that show and the slims always will.

This slim should provide some new exploit ideas to be tested. Just hope i dont have to buy a slim to get a hacked ps3

That's exactly the same as current PS3s, except for the "PS3" logo on the right. Sony has said that When the new slim is officially released on Sept. 1st you will have to download fw 3.00.

Sorry Guys I was a little hasty with the update and didn't check to see what version it came with. Oh and about the start up screen "Semitope" is right It would make sense that the slim would come shipped with new branding, its not a hoax I saw that start up when I turned it on. If you guys have anymore questions I'll be happy to answer if possible.

I ignored that bit because i figured it'd be easy for them to change that from manufacture. It makes sense that it comes with that startup since sony is making a change in ps3 branding. They couldn't have their new product showing the old logo.
