Firmware 3.10 allows users to send error reports to Sony
Freezing is an annoying issue and there is no way for everyone to be able to report such errors in an easy way. While it’s unknown what exactly is being sent to Sony, expect information about your software and hardware to be sent. According to a disclaimer before sending in the report, this includes PSN account information, the content saved on your PS3, and your email address. This information will be sent if it was being used during the time of the problem.
Hopefully this will make certain freezes a thing of the past, especially for the PS3 web browser. In fact, that’s how we were able to get these pics without fail. After opening up YouTube XL on the browser, a freeze came within the next 10 minutes. Such a dependable freezing technique hopefully showcases the problems that exist so that Sony can fix the bugs ASAP.
When you start up your PS3 after a freeze expect to see this message:
What do you guys think? This is probably one of the more practical features of firmware 3.10. We’d rather spam Sony with error reports than spam facebook friends with trophy notifications…but that’s just us. Don’t forget to check out our firmware 3.10 impressions.
