Details from Phil Harrison- Sony Computer Worldwide Studios
Keynote at GDC March 7th 2007:


Firmware update available on the 8th for North America/Japan and Asia. European PS3’s will be preloaded with this latest update.

Features of this latest firmware include:

More refined PS Store frontend
Playstation Network integrity enhanced
Wallpapers from pictures
Ability to change background colours
Sony Connect Store for music and movies added to the PS Store. Hundreds of trailers/full films/song videos and mps3’s available for download.
Playstation Card option in PS Store enabled.
Playstation Lifestyle- Similar to my space/youtube. User generated content and experiences are the key.
+ more.

Removal of Emotion Engine chips in PS3’s in NA and Japan to follow in April. Reason for this is to reduce costs and focus on enhanced opportunities via software. Benefits include the ability to upscale selected PSone/PS2 games to 1080i/720p.

Lots of development talk.
Release dates for key games. Warhawk in June/July 2007. Heavenly Sword delayed. Killzone and MGS4 in late 2007.

New content on PS Store available on the 8th:

Tekken 6 trailer

More details. Stay tuned on the 7th.

It’s all about the software now people. Fuck hardware man, just fuck it. We are software centric, YEA! Killzone demo in May? Thats nice, I don’t think anyone cares but hey, can’t blame them for trying huh? Look what you can do guys, download demos, my GOD, that’s amazing. Of course this could all be BS, but if this is in fact the keynote speech…YAWN. It seems things are going in the right direction, so we shall see.
