Thanks for posting this so I can download the firmware update before millions of people start to making it a slow as hell process.
luckily the only game i'm really going for is dead rising 2 and hopefully before it's released cfw will be made which will allow me to play it even if i can't play online with it heh.
My PS3 is staying on 1.10 so I won't be grabbing this, but if anyone does it would be great if you could post some details on the new Video Edit and Uploader which is apparently a separate 44MB (.PKG File?) application.
According to Examiner.com (http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-1...tions-revealed), with it you cannot use video copied to the system before the 3.40 update nor can you use copyrighted videos.
i guess i'll run the update, and check out the new features.

One feature not said about is the new photo albums. You can upload/download to Facebook and even view Facebook albums on the PS3.
And the video editor as said above can only view/edit videos made after FW 3.40 is installed will work with it.
Umm I just downloaded the update and my MAG character is no where to be found. Help....?
