I saw a post something out there about facebook and flickr being pulled at the last moment.

Streaming gaming (welcome to slow down city over your caps)

Call of Duty 2 - $69.95 ... Viva pinata $29.95 (and 4.98 GB) both chosen at random out of interest on the cost. I suppose it's ok pricing - not exactly compelling pricing versus heading out and buying from a store. (And that's before considering the download size)

Obviously not as radically as the introduction of the NXE - smaller game rip sizes is nice (especially given still have the 20GB drive)

The new update was not meant to have facebook ,twitter and last.fm update in the first place. That update is coming out in fall. This was announced at E3.

August update has games on demand and also if you notice installing game's to HDD, install size is very small. Not 6GB or 7GB but most games are like max 4GB. I installed Ashes Cricket which was only 2GB.




Do whatever you want to do man.

As billgates said Facebook, Twitter and Last.fm are coming in another update later this year.

This latest update introduces an avatar marketplace, reduced install size for games, Games on Demand, user ratings for games, and Netflix improvements (which don't apply in NZ). Nothing radical or overly exciting, but still not a bad update.
