    PS3 System Software Update (v4.20)

    + Posted by Eric Lempel // VP, Sony Network Entertainment

    Tomorrow we will be releasing a new system software update (v4.20) for PlayStation 3 which will include a few minor updates in order to strengthen functionality and improve your overall experience.

    As mentioned in our previous blog post, system software update (v4.10) added a feature that enabled you to hear your own voice through the Wireless Stereo Headset when playing multiplayer modes. This type of audio feedback is known as “sidetone.” Based on your comments, system software update (v4.20) will improve sidetone audio performance by giving you the option to select one out of five levels for microphone audio, or turn the feature off completely. For those of you who use the Wireless Stereo Headset to watch Blu-ray or DVD movies on your PS3, this system software update will also enable virtual surround sound functionality, giving you a superior audio experience.

    This update will also allow you to set the amount of time that the system will wait before turning itself off automatically for [Video/TV/Music/Photo] and for [Game/Other Features].

    Additionally, saved data management has been improved. You will now be able to select multiple saved data items and delete or copy them as a group.

    More details will be available here tomorrow once the system software update is live.

    Why would I want to hear myself when I'm playing multiplayer?

    The bold part is pretty good. I thought about that a while ago and it would make backing up saves more efficient and less tedious. But the other part, like Lasombra said...why the heck would I want to hear myself in my own mic?

    Thanks for the info. El Jefe.

    Maybe to verify your MIC is working I guess? Not sure.
    I've never heard myself while using my Mic though online.....

    Remember, its a free service guys, and all good things come little by little.

    Getting the virtual surround on the headphones for movies will be nice for me since I watch movies while my wife sleeps at night. Don't use the mic feedback feature though so don't know if that change will be any good.

    I'll use as so you can tell your talking because it seems like your saying nothing at times. I'd much prefer too hear it through the awesome headset.
