Speculation: Is Sony Confirming Rumored 2.7 Firmware Update?

Speculation: Is Sony Confirming Rumored 2.7 Firmware Update? 550°
315w ago - Update: Talking in the official Sony forums, someone asked if I saw the past codes. I replied yes, and the letters XI from the past messages sparked something.

If you didn't already read, the rumors for PS3 Firmware 2.7 claimed the in-game XMB loading has been drastically improved. Maybe they're revamping the in-game XMB as a whole. The letters XI could stand for 'Cross-Interface'. Okay, that's it Sony, I'm pumped.

A couple of days ago, we found some strange codes and writing in PlayStation Home. We posted screenshots, and no one really knew what they were. The codes and writing are back, but now it looks as if they're actually meant to be there and hinting us about something.

Could this help us confirm the rumors of 2.7 and it's features being true? Or is someone at Sony seriously not coding PS Home correctly? Could they be subtitles from an upcoming title Sony is already hyping?
 

Diablo III's Rumored 2010 Release Date is Not Very Likely

Diablo III's Rumored 2010 Release Date is Not Very Likely 50°
316w ago - It has recently surfaced that a Diablo III fan site has jumped to the conclusion that Blizzard has somehow "confirmed" Diablo III's release for 2010.

They've made this assessment based on Blizzard's recent announcement that it is planning to release one "frontline" title per year, just as it has in the past.

Expansion packs like The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King could easily fall under this very definition, based on both their pricing and the amount of content they have to offer.

While it is more than likely that Starcraft II will be released this year based on the fact that it is going into Beta very soon, as with everything Blizzard has ever done, nothing can be certain until they make the actual announcement.

With that said, even if Starcraft II comes out this year, there's absolutely no guarantee that Diablo III will be their next game.

The fact remains that World of Warcraft remains an extremely popular title, and the possibility for the release of yet another, perhaps final expansion pack is almost certainly guaranteed.

Beyond World of Warcraft, Blizzard has already announced plans for two Starcraft II expansion packs which...

Sony: No Plans for Rumored March PlayStation 3 Price Cut

Sony: No Plans for Rumored March PlayStation 3 Price Cut 200°
328w ago - Responding to new rumors of a PS3 price cut in March 2009, a Sony Computer Entertainment America rep told Edge, "There are no plans for a price reduction on PS3 in March 09, and anything reported on or discussed otherwise is purely rumor or speculation."

Over the weekend, online magazine D+Pad cited an anonymous source who purportedly attended a Sony staff briefing in London where execs said the PS3 will have a more competitive price from March 2009 and beyond.

March 31, 2009 marks the end of Sony's fiscal year, during which the company expects to sell 10 million PS3 units, or about flat compared to the previous year.

Sony has repeatedly denied a PS3 price cut will take place before the holidays.

Currently, Xbox 360s retail from $199 to $399 and Wiis sell for $249 in the U.S. Standard 80GB PS3s sell for $399.

SCEA sales VP Ian Jackson recently told analysts at the BMO Capital Markets Interactive Entertainment Conference, "There is no product in the industry today on the videogame console market that delivers what a PlayStation 3 delivers for under $400, in the case of the 80GB."
 

Rumored New PS3 Exclusive: Savage Moon

Rumored New PS3 Exclusive: Savage Moon 50°
342w ago - If you're a European detective, you might have discovered that the German software ratings board (USK) is listing every game to appear at the upcoming Leipzig Games Convention.

At least, most of them. This can result in some lovely new game titles, possibly spoiling certain publisher's announcements.

It is developed by Sony, hence it will be a PS3 exclusive and is described as residing within the military genre and carries a 12 rating.

Props go to VicViper from NeoGAF (linked above) for pointing this out.
