Sony give PS3 Firmware 2.70 walkthrough, new features revealed

Sony have released a video which showcases some of the new features coming in the 2.70 firmware update for PS3. With the contents of the firmware still rather mystrious, the video gives some intresting info on what to expect.

The video reveals that text chat with others will now be available via XMB and also in-game. Chatrooms can be created, and the ability to invite 16 people will be allowed. Sony also say you can have three chatrooms open at one time should you so wish.

The Friends List layout will also get an upgrade, with new sorting options available, such as sort by status, and by name available to let those with long lists have an easier time finding stuff.
