The day of firmware updates

MajorNelson have told the world that a system update for Xbox 360 is now available. No new features but a fix only, and I quote:

This update addresses interruption issues that some Xbox LIVE users may have experienced when playing a limited number of Xbox 360 games.

And PlayStation3 got its firmware updates to v2.70. Playstation.blog have this to say about the new update:

In addition to Text Chat, we’ve added a few more enhancements:

Friends list on the XMB (XrossMediaBar)

  • Sort your friends via their online status
  • Attach larger files to the messages you send to your friends (file size will increase from 1MB to 3MB)

Video delivery service on PlayStation Store

  • Video files you’ve purchased from the PlayStation Store can be backed up to an external storage device and then restored to PS3’s internal hard drive for playback – so you can clear up space on your hard drive and then restore the video anytime in the future
  • Videos you’ve purchased for PSP (PlayStation Portable) system can now be transferred to PS3 for playback

They’ve also put up a video preview of the firmware.
