PS3 suckage continues; shareholders seen jumping off very tall buildings

jumper.jpg You know that shiny $600 PC/game console you just bought? Yeah, it's not really done yet. In fact, as soon as you bring that bad boy home you're gonna have to download a software update. What? You don't have online access? Well, then you've got bigger problems than a software update to worry about.
Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. will offer the first software update for its PlayStation 3 games console on Saturday simultaneously with the start of sales of the device. The firmware update will add support for the PlayStation Network online service and be offered as a free download. It will upgrade the software from version 1.0 to 1.1, SCEI said on Thursday. Users will be able to access the update from a menu item in the PlayStation 3. In late November the company also plans to offer a firmware update for its PlayStation Portable (PSP) games device. The update will bump the firmware to version 3.0 and add PlayStation Network support. With the new firmware in both devices the PSP will be able to access contents stored on the PlayStation 3 via a wireless LAN connection using a system Sony has dubbed "Remote Play." It will also make it possible to purchase and download PSP games content.
Poor poor Sony. It just seems like they can't catch a break with anything these days. And oh yeah, massive damage going on here.

One last look at GTA Online heists ahead of next week's launch

For as long of a wait as it's been, I'm still enthusiastic about heists in Grand Theft Auto Online. Rockstar previously said that coming up with missions in which every player in the crew feels important at all times "turned ...more
