The Poll Police were off on a quest to protect and serve at a wedding last week, so consider yourselves off the hook for any unnecessary polling shenanigans. This week, however, we have a new issue to ask your opinion on – and by new, we mean something we've heard over and over again. A new firmware is on the horizon and with it, rumors of its contents. We've heard in-game XMB access, 2-D trophies on the XMB
, murmurs of Blu-ray movie playability on the PSP, and more. None of it is confirmed and most of it is heresay, but there seems to be a lot of faith in this round of firmware rumors. What's your take?
Personally, we're feeling pretty good about this one. The firmware is supposedly scheduled to hit at or before the launch of Metal Gear Solid 4
, so the timing would be rather convenient – a flagship PlayStation title with some sought-after features launching right with it. Sounds good, but is it too good to be true? Give us two weeks. Last week's poll
results are after the cut, also.
The masses are torn! Should all installs be optional, or do you not mind them? It seems the world of internet-savvy gamers seeking news can't quite come to a solid conclusion either way. All the other choices failed to amount to anything significant, but it's interesting to see how closely the two leading options came as the poll died off. Maybe we'll see more optional polls in the future, or maybe we won't. Time, as always, will tell.
