Three Speech: Firmware Version 2.0, Nothing Revealed

ThreeSpeech has been updated with a new post titled "Firmware Version 2.0". Three Speech writes:
"We are hearing whisperings that Firmware Version 2.0 will be released in the next couple of weeks and one rather nice feature will be the functionality that will allow you to turn on your PlayStation 3 using a PSP via remote play. Hold tight for further news…"
Nothing new is shown here, as we know this information already. But mind me here, if we don't have in-game XMB (which adds in-game messaging, music, and such), cross game invites, and organization on the XMB (videos, games, pictures), then I will be pretty sad.

Star Wars: The Force New Information & Pictures

Some new information on LucasArts' upcoming Star Wars: The Force Unleashed were revealed today. That includes locations, characters, and details.

In one part of the game, you will visit a TIE Fighter Construction Facility "sent by Lord Vader to eliminate Master Kota, a fugitive Jedi General who has taken over the station with a band of his loyal followers".

Later you visit the homeworld of Kashyyyk, where Vader launches a huge attack for a "pivotal" part of the game.

The planet Felucia is where you're sent "in search of Shaak Ti", and you'll also find yourself in the interstellar dumping planet of Raxus Prime, in search of a reclusive Jedi droid maker.

New details for Proxy the droid have also been revealed. According to LucasArts: "Proxy is a prototype holodroid who has been the Apprentice's constant companion for many years. Although Proxy's origins are unknown, the droid is a one-of-a-kind unit capable of using advanced hologram technology and built-in servos to alter his appearance, becoming virtually anyone." Cool.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is set between Episode III and Episode IV in the movie series and sticks you in the shoes of Darth Vader's apprentice, aiding the Dark Lord of the Sith in ridding the universe of Jedi. LucasArts has spoken of a branching storyline, explaining that "Decisions made by players throughout the game will determine the path of the story, including multiple endings that will rock Star Wars continuity as they know it."
