Hot on the heels of the monumentally ho-hum version 2.52 update, Sony is ready to unleash an all-new world of excitement with firmware update 2.53, scheduled for release tomorrow. According to the update notes, the firmware update will introduce full-screen support for Adobe Flash Player content in the web browser, meaning you'll be able to full-screen your choppy internet porn instead of just sitting really close the the TV and squinting. The writers from the future on the PlayStation website mention that firmware 2.53 was released on November 26th. Our time stream should be catching up to theirs shortly.

Too many f'ing firmware updates!!
Sony (and everyone else for that matter) really need to learn to just hold the updates until there's a really good reason for releasing one. Full-screen Flash support is not a really good reason for a firmware update.
They're only hurting themselves with this. Every time I try to log in to the PlayStation Store, I get hit with "a software update is required". EVERY time. Usually, I won't even bother, because I know it's going to be a 10-15 minute wait. I will just exit out of the store and forget about it, along with whatever I might have thought of buying (honestly, I don't normally buy things online, but I can't imagine I'm the only one who sees the "update required" message and then leaves).
Imagine if you went to [Amazon.com] to buy something, and EVERY time you had to wait 15 minutes for a set of Windows Updates before you could visit the site. Would you ever go back there?
