The users of the PlayStation Network have voiced their opinion and Sony has replied. Based on the feedback from Firmware 3.0, Sony has decided to put a Q&A up on the European PlayStation Blog.
What Firmware 3.0 functionality would you like to see made optional?
Late last week the US Playstation Blog reported that SCEA is aware of the issues with Firmware 3.0.
Anybody experience any of these first-hand?
Thanks to the official launch of the PS3 Slim across the world PlayStation 3 owners can now get their hands on Firmware 3.0.
So what does the latest upgrade offer and, most importantly of all, do the battery meter and clock still clash on screen?
We are nearing the release of the long awaited and somewhat fabled Firmware 3.0 for the PlayStation 3. How do we know we’re close to see it? Not only it was just announced at GamesCom, but the US PlayStation.Blog released a video update on how the new firmware is coming along with a slightly new look.
Promising to be “a completely new system”, it appears that the PS3 is about to get its very own “New Experience.”
Highlights of the new firmware release include the oft-mooted Reputation System where gamers can evaluate the prowess of other players as well as a “Grief Reporting” mechanism.
The US PlayStation Blog have announced that we are getting a wonderful new update for our favourite feature-hungry black box.
Not only that, but it will be rummaging in the fridge, lounging on the sofa and generally making itself at home from tomorrow onwards!
With only a fractional increment in the version number, don’t expect the fresh 2.76 PS3 Firmware update to do a hell of lot in terms of new features or radical improvements.
In other words, for those of you holding out for cross game chat and other similar wonderments; we’re afraid you’re going to have to wait (for E3 no doubt).
Firmware updates have become an integral part of the PlayStation 3 experience, with new ones coming in every three months on average.
So what do we think of the latest firmware (2.70) and the new additions it brings to the system?
Prescience aside, we’re just glad to see 2.70 finally raising its murky head from the Sea of Speculation so the wild predictions about its content can stop.
Fans of chat, sorting, huge attachments and media backup should prepare for a giddy frenzy. The rest of you, and we’re thinking this is the majority, look away now. There’s nothing to see here.
The Koalition have contacted Sony about that whole PS3 playing PS2 games through software emulation rumour. And they got a response.
We had the good. Now it’s the turn of the bad. What could go wrong for the PS3 in 2009? Are there any wrinkles at the edges ready to tear? Will we see death and destruction all around the gaming world? Will anything be as good as we are told it will? All this and more, after the break.
IT’S ALIVE!!! The media enhancing and otherwise nothing else-y update 2.60 is now live. The update took me 15 minutes, and the photo gallery added xx minutes to the total time I spent staring at my HDTV because I have that kind of time (Note: I really don’t). Go grab yours while they last*.
Our beloved PS3 is about to gain another upgrade through Firmware v2.60.
The evergreen Eric Lempel of SCEA has been detailing the latest features in the video below, which include some excellent new photo management capabilities though the new Photo Gallery software as well as a DivX upgrade and guest access to the PS Store.
