    OK? So what's that all about exactly? 'Playback' may refer to cut-scenes ? But god knows. Downloading now anyway, the install does not appear to be mandatory at the moment, however a check with the software update wizard reveals it.

    I hate that Sony is so vague with these fixes. Just say what game(s) it fixes, and when you insert one of those games, require the update. Don't make me download and install one of these heart-stopping updates (I always freak when it reboots and takes a little longer than normal to start up) if I don't need it. :p

    I hate that Sony's firmware updates are always huge, and slow to download. I'm assuming we're downloading the entire ROM every single time instead of just patches like XBOX Live?

    It depends on what is being updated. As of yesterday 2.80 was not mandatory, meaning you can login and use PSN without doing the upgrade. This may be different today, but I haven't checked PSN status today. The PS3 only replaces what is needed in the update and any of the shared components that are needed to support the update.

    The only system that fully updates its "ROM" is the Wii. A Wii system update is just that, it deletes and replaces the complete system/OS image on the systems memory.

    OMFG it fixed the southwing SA505 bluetooth headset.

    This is utterly amazing.

    Haha for me this is the greatest update EVER.
