PS3 Firmware 2.5 Now Live

posted in: Game News 0

That 2.5 firmware I spoke of is now live. You can check out some of the features included in this update in that post. So after that 7 hour maintenance today, we get to see the fruits of Sony’s labor.

I like Google. Their friendly approach to taking over the world is refreshing and welcomed. It seems like almost anything they touch becomes great. Their latest target, the web browser, hopes to take the best of every major browser out there and combine it into Chrome. And it’s all open source.

Sounds interesting, but which browser is Google going up against? Is it IE? FireFox? Opera or Safari? Perhaps everyone? Well, the CEO of Mozilla has an idea. However, whatever happens, I’ll be keeping tabs on it.

You can download the beta here.
