Playstation 3 Firmware 3.0 Announced and Detailed.

Hot off the Gamescon Sony Press Conference comes the announcement of a new PS3 firmware. The Playstation Blog has it outlined in greater detail(and a video as well), but the quick bullet points list is as follows:

*“What’s New” message board replaces the “Information Board.” As you no doubt have guessed, it displays the latest gaming news.

*Status Indicator – In the top right corner we’ve added an indicator bar, which displays your user icon, friend icon, the number of friends you have online and a small message icon to let you know if you have any new messages.

*Friends List – Now your PlayStation Network friends will appear in a slightly redesigned format on your Friends List. Also, messages will now be viewable from each of your friends’ respective profiles.

*PlayStation Store Shortcuts – We’ve added a handy shortcut icon to the PlayStation Store under both the Game and Video categories so you can access the latest content quickly and easily.

*Personalization – Personalize your PS3 with new dynamic custom themes and avatars. Dynamic themes as well as free and premium avatars will be available through PlayStation Store. A dynamic theme takes your screen to a whole new level as it incorporates animated objects into the background.

*Trophies – Showcasing your hard earned trophies just got better. Update 3.00 gives game developers the ability to modify how they display trophies for add-on content.
