* “What’s New” – The “Information Board” will be replaced with a “What’s New” section, which allows you to enjoy interactive PlayStation news every time you start the PS3 system. Located under the PlayStation Network icon, “What’s New” displays the latest and greatest game, video, PlayStation Network and PlayStation news and releases, as well as your recently played games, in a sleek, new animated format.
* Status Indicator – In the top right corner we’ve added an indicator bar, which displays your user icon, friend icon, the number of friends you have online and a small message icon to let you know if you have any new messages. The indicator also includes a scrolling ticker that features the latest news from PlayStation Network. In addition, when you press the PS button, the battery life indicator will no longer cover up the clock.
* Friends List – Now your PlayStation Network friends will appear in a slightly redesigned format on your Friends List. Also, messages will now be viewable from each of your friends’ respective profiles.
* PlayStation Store Shortcuts – We’ve added a handy shortcut icon to the PlayStation Store under both the Game and Video categories so you can access the latest content quickly and easily.
* Personalization – Personalize your PS3 with new dynamic custom themes and avatars. Dynamic themes as well as free and premium avatars will be available through PlayStation Store. A dynamic theme takes your screen to a whole new level as it incorporates animated objects into the background.
* Trophies – Showcasing your hard earned trophies just got better. Update 3.00 gives game developers the ability to modify how they display trophies for add-on content. Base and add-on game trophies will continue to be combined into a single list so you can see where you stand in a game as a whole. Within that list, trophies will be broken out into subcategories—base trophies and add-on trophies—that way, you can easily view the percentage of your base game trophy collection, and separately track your trophy progress in add-on packs. Look for this enhancement to be included in upcoming games.

omg 3.00 is better than they made it out to be...They made countless changes that only made it better...They added a bandwidth test feature( tells you your download and upload speeds)...They added a scroll bar so you will know how far you are from the bottom of a list of files or data....they added new avatars....they made the font bigger and when your looking at something it blurs the background so the wall paper or dynamic wall paper doesnt make it hard to read.....They changed the way things are sorted...you can group all data in a particular way and then sort it in another at the same time...You can now output audio to multiple outputs for example you could output audio through the fiber opitic output as well as hdmi...The new analog clock at the top right corner doubles as the loading clock and spins while loading and when it is done is spins back to the correct time...I only looked at it for a bit...im sure there are a ton of new features i havnt discovered yet.

I saw this the other day. I really like that Sony is taking the time to make big updates like this to the PS3 and the PSP as well. I don't have a PS3 but I know on my PSP they keep pushing out updates with new features all the fricking time and I really like that.
