Default PS3 Update Today... wtf?

Hi folks,

Anyone get an update today?

Just turned the machine on and it prompted to update to 2.35.

No idea what it does yet though.

Said to improve stability to some games... aka probably GTA4 Firmware patch.

Firmwares come as they are finished, no specific days set for them. PSN Store is every Thursday.

It's starting to win me over, but only in a media sense. Not convinced with the games yet, think I bought it a little too early in a way.... might have been worth waiting closer to Resistance, Killzone 2 etc

The update was to be able to run HD-DVD's on the PS3.

That would actually be awesome... still lots of HD DVDs to snap up at lower prices.

There's a quote from a Sony employee somewhere in the psblog that confirms that this patch is not for GTA4. Not sure then what it is for, but confirmed not to be for GTA.

Yanno to be honest that would be a good gesture from sony if they did that. I would probably buy one if they did but never let magus know I did.
