I guess we need a firmware thread for this board. 

So the current version is 2.41  It fixes the bugs and crashes from 2.40

I wonder what the next update will have? The home beta comes out this year, so either the next one or the one after will contain that I guess...

The next update will more than likely be a security fix.

Sony need to copy microsoft and only do a couple a year. Having to spend a few minutes every other week is silly.

Personally, I think Sony needs to improve on its PSN store. I know it's come a long way in a short time, but I feel that there is an endless library of PS1 classics waiting to come out. The trophy system also needs smoother integration, at least in my opinion.

I updated to 2.40 without any problems... and then 2 or 3 days later, 2.41! I mean come on, if you have to update all your systems, make it right, there was no rush for it... was it!?
Everything works just fine now... what about next one!?

Well.. yes there was a rush for it. People have waited pretty much since the PS3 release for in-game XMB and it finally came with 2.40, but 2.40 didn't work for everyone and in some cases bricked some consoles so they had to release a fix in 2.41.

why everytime I press the psn button during a game, everything loads so slowly? isn't it possible to make the loading faster? this and the limited amount of things i can do during playing a game is what making frustrated over 2.41.

I think that they should have the complete MGS collection for sale on the PSN.

Because the system is trying to play the game and open up the XMB, so i guess there is less memory available.  In some games, it hardly loads at all.

Only time I really found the XMB SLOW (still faster then the blades btw) is when I pull up the XMB while a game is at the loading screen.

Maybe if the PS3 had more RAM the in-game XMB would load faster. But it is still good and comes in handy.

Yeah I guess so, but I think it can be improved later on

Yeah speed has always been improving on the PS3, if you look at the launch PS3 and how long it would take to scroll from movie to picture to music to message etc, and look at it now, you will notice big difference.
