It was, of course, a ridiculous headline, but the point was there and I still reckon it’s absolutely true – that silly SingStar icon, if it’s staying, should be moveable.
And now, like the clock / battery issue that became a running (and still humourous) meme every time Sony uttered the words “new firmware”, we’ll all be chanting for the option to hide/delete/burn that family-friendly in-road until we get the ability.
This time, though, it’s not happening.
Sadly, tonight’s optional update, which will take the PS3 to firmware 4.31, is purely for issues relating to Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD, an esoteric an update as there’s ever been.
Apparently it doesn’t even fix the fact that the PS3’s security is under threat. At least, if it did, it wouldn’t be optional.
“This is not a mandatory update,” says a Sony rep, via NeoGAF. “However, we suggest you keep your systems updated with the latest firmware, as these updates further improve overall system stability and help provide you with the best online entertainment experience possible.”
