It’s been a while but Sony is issuing a new firmware update to the PS3. Numbered 3.7, this update will enhance the system with some cloud based saves and automatic trophy syncs. Enabled either in the XMB or the first time a game is booted is up, the feature will allow players to save their game automatically online to be picked up again on another machine at a later date. Trophys will now auto-sync online instead of waiting for gamers to maunally sync them with Sony’s servers. What could be the downside to this? Maybe the fact only members of PlayStation Plus get access to them. Yep, pretty lame indeed.
For us lesser beings, the update will grant us a new “TV/Video Services” spot on the XMB where services like Netflix and Hulu will now reside. Don’t confuse this with the Video slot which is where any videos purchased in the PS Store will hide. The PS Store will also get a recomendation feature, allowing gamers to tell friends about content they like in the Store. The console will also be getting some upgrades to the 3D playback capabilities of Blu-rays.
