Default PS3 System Update 1.54 Available

Just got on the PS3 and was informed system update 1.54 is available. Not sure of the changes yet.

This is all I found for the 1.54 changes:

Quote:
New for 1.54: [Screen Mode] has been added as an option in the options menu for video chat. The image of the person you are chatting with during video chat can now be changed to match the screen size.

New for 1.54: You can now use a compatible USB camera compliant with USB video class (UVC) for video chat.

I'm probably just retarded, but is there any setting I can configure that will allow the system to boot into anything other than the Games menu? It's annoying to have it go there by default and then I'm assaulted by the music of whatever demos I've downloaded.

The easy fix is to stop leaving your discs in the drive. Wingding.

Something is rumored to come along with the March update that is supposedly going to help out HDTV owners.

Quote:
I’ve got a few interesting details regarding upcoming PS3 features - some of which will make it to Sony’s keynote at GDC next week. Let’s just say that Sony has some good news for the Sony faithful, especially HDTV owners.

I’ll leave it at that. Come back Thursday kiddos.

though not coming in march the site says (sometime around summer), this is pretty good news if true. phil harrison should be talking about it during gdc.

Awesome... sounds like US and Japan PS3 owners get the best of both Hardware and software emulation if this turns out to be true...


EDIT: And I just saw this.

Heh, I bet people will still complain. Remember just a couple of days ago it was a "handful" of titles. Wonder how these losers will spin it now.

I think if Sony hadn't made a stink about the 360's software emulation, and saying that their method was better, then turn around and do the same thing, there wouldn't have been an issue.

There method is still better. They have PS3's in both US and Japan playing about 98% of their back catalog. While have the UK PS3's playing all PS1 and according to the latest news, a little over 1000 PS2 games. You have to admit that is not a bad number at all. Especially after everyone was bad mouthing them last week, making it seem like they'd barely even have over 100 BC titles.

I could see the emulation software that hits the US and Japan being buggier, or the whole thing being a mess. You have a team of software writers writing software that has different hardware environments/platforms to run on (assuming that both versions will use the same code base), then add in all the exceptions and rules for different games to throw in.

i.e. this game uses the built in hardware, this games uses the emulator except under these conditions... When you start going down paths like that, things get ugly.
