I reckon one would need an internet connection to update? I am not online yet. Any other ways to update the firmware?

When one can afford a ps3 for 24k why buy pirated dvds when originals are available for as low as 35.

I have a 40GB model that we picked up immediately after the HD war ended in favour of BlueRay. The internet connectivity on that one seems a bit dicey - we noticed a message about an available update for NFS ProStreet and tried downloading it (wireless connection) but it failed after a while.

The quality of these DVD's are pathetic. And most important the sound tracks on them are just normal 2 channel one's. No 5.1 Dolby Digital or DTS.
