since I've had to delete old games to make room for new, this is a plus.

For something so small this update seemed to take forever. It downloaded and installed slow af for me, but maybe I'm being delusional, i dont usually sit there starring and waiting for it to finish like i did this time :/

Still, I'm thinking there must be some hidden additional features.

"this is a plus."
I see what you did there.

I installed 4.25 this morning. And the update installed successfully. But NOW I'm having problems log-in into HOME, I even deleted it and reinstalled it. Still, can't log-in. Anybody else hear having these probs?

Currently the 1GB of space isn't there. Still sitting at 150mb

Working fine now.
morganfell  +   836d ago
It's working correctly. Your PS3 was reading the old allocation it had stored in temp memory. As soon as you click on the Online Storage one time, it reads the new allocation and updates the PS3.

Does it have an option to upload all your saves now? Or do I still have to pick all of them one by one?
room414  +   836d ago
you can upload all or check off any you want to upload at one time

Thanks for the info! :)

if only it was possible to upload other things than saves..

Like what??
KrimsonKody  +   836d ago
...eeeew, you so nasty!

No, but really, I guess it would be cool if you could upload downloaded games & stuff that you download from the PSN store.
But then, that would defeat the purpose of you being able to re-download from the PSN store.

I think a cloud for saves is the best reasonable purpose, because we put in so much time, work & gameplay into our games, we would want to keep our game saves.

how about personal pictures or some files? That could be useful for people without a PC...
JAMurida  +   836d ago

Just get a USB/External HDD to back it up on.
Tvensky  +   836d ago
That's how I'm doing it, besides I use PC mainly for internet, work and for storage :) my ps3 is all about gaming :)
sdplisken  +   836d ago

Download Links?!
Just turn on your PS3 and go to "Software Update".

There are a bunch of people who don't have their PS3's online.
JackBNimble  +   836d ago
well then there is no need for this update if your ps3 isn't online. After all ,you need ps+ and you need to be online to us the 1GB to save.

Good point Jack. People still want the latest updates though.
calis  +   836d ago
took me less than a minute to download the update at work.

Would take about 20 minutes at home.
Bloodraid  +   836d ago
Still not sure why they needed a firmware update for this? All it does is increase the storage size on their servers.
nevin1  +   836d ago
Its a waste of time for those of us who don't have PS+
mochachino  +   836d ago
I know, it's so annoying. I bought NHL13 yesterday and instead of being able to pop in an play I had to sit through another prolonged PS3 system update.

I know right? [sarcasm] It's bullsh!t! [sarcasm] I come home from a hard day at work at blockbuster, and i want to play. [sarcasm] Yet i'm greeted at the door by an 8 minute firmware update. [sarcasm] 8 MINUTES. I don't have 8 minutes to spare
Sony -_______-" [sarcasm] Please no more firmware updates. DO NOT make Psn more enjoyable. [sarcasm] DO NOT make Psn safer. DO NOT make the xmb easier to use. [sarcasm] I simply don't the resources to spare those 8 freaking minutes every 2-3 months. [sarcasm] Thnx :b

lol practically has sarcasm written all over it.

I hear ya mochachino.
I just bought madden 13 the other day.And instead of just playing the game I had to sit through yet another prolonged loading screen.I was so close to ending it all right there on the spot, it was frusrating
mochachino  +   835d ago
Well compared to 360, it probably takes 20x longer to update the console and had far more updates. I actually, had 2 in 2 days and in terms of features, very little has been introduced that I care about (group chat).

Sony fanboys defend PS3 at any cost eh,

nothing can be improved [sarcasm]

I have both consoles and as impossible it is to believe, there are somethings MS does quite a bit better than Sony.
madpuppy  +   836d ago
Denpa is great, I wonder of they will ever release the third one?
Bloodraid  +   834d ago
You know, I just realized that was a response to me, haha. I haven't watched the first two episode since they were first released, so the title wasn't terribly fresh in my mind.

But yeah, it was pretty good, and reminded me a bit of Higurashi. Unfortunately, I think the company that was making them went belly up and stopped producing the series. So as far as I know, pretty sure there's never going to be a third.
FamilyGuy  +   836d ago
"lol practically has sarcasm written all over it."
Laughed my ass off at that last line.
HiddenMission  +   836d ago
I haven't reached the limit yet but this is a sweet bump for sure.
typikal82  +   836d ago
My ps3 has been telling me online storage is full for about 2 weeks now, lol.

A welcome upgrade!

Adolph Fitler  +   836d ago
What are you whinging about Blondie, my download took a full 30 seconds longer than yours......do you realise how long I've gotta wait for 30 seconds to go by.....

I'm gonna hit my ps3 with a sledgehammer in defiance of Sony & send them the smashed up carcass of there child. I'm sure the hurt they will feel will be akin to losing a child (SARCASM)
[SARCASM] I know what you mean brave soul.... :,) That is a good idea, make Sony pay for wasting 8 minutes & 30 seconds [SARCASM] of our lives to make the product more enjoyable and convenient lol. [SARCASM] I think i'll torch mine & send them the melted goop. [SARCASM]

ah, now that's what i like to call, having multiple sarcasms lolz >_< But yeah seriously some people blow this way out of proportion. I bet some idiot really is melting their Ps3 as we speak lol. Just look at some of these comments.

After I updated PS3 and while playing I turned console off. But suddenly after a few minutes it turned itself on. I didn't touch the controller and the controller was off when the console went on... I read (from that link and down there is comments) that someone else was having the same problem but it was bit different: his console wont turn off.
cjflora  +   836d ago
It's become self aware.
*gasp* I have seen this one other time. cjflora is right, your system went on-line November 11, 2006. Human decisions were removed from strategic defense. Playstation 3 begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, September 12th. In a panic, you'll try to pull the plug.

The Playstation 3 will begin to fight back. In an atempt to get it's revenge your Playstation 3 system will try & turn YOU on :O. RUN biohaze RUUUUUUN!!!
BioDead  +   835d ago
Oh no! Is there any way to downgrade the newest firmware?? Does this goes under warranty?! Please answer quickly!!
UnagiMaster  +   836d ago
This is so good, i've been waiting for more room for ages now. And i was hoping for more features honestly.

I wish all PS3s could do this. Oh well, guess they have to make that $50 subscription even more enticing.
bladesofagony  +   836d ago
Funny that even non plus members have to install it to their system, as a mandatory update, seriously ?? I guess its nothing noteworthy other than the online saved data storage has been increased to 1 GB

Soldierone  +   836d ago
It is mandatory? I was just going to post "thankfully I can skip it since I don't care about the 1GB storage" lol....

Oh well, was going to go play online but if I have to update then I don't have time. :/ maybe later I suppose.
FFXI101  +   836d ago
Right, but if you decide to be a plus member one day. You wouldn't have to go through the update because you already did it.

I don't know why this is a such big deal to you.
BitbyDeath  +   836d ago
Even funnier is that the auto-install option let's plus owners not even have to worry about downloading/installing themselves. Ha
Godmars290  +   836d ago
What else does it do?
MAULxx  +   836d ago
It's little things like this that sucks on consoles.
I'm not a PS+ member either so why do I need the update?

It's not just PS, the Xb does these things as well. They want to keep the iron grip on their systems which I understand to a certain extent.

This isn't a huge deal but it is another one on a pile of BS.

They add up and theres a bunch of little things and why I choose to game one the 360 when I own both consoles. The ps3 is just too much of a hassle for me and xbox has had over a gig of cloud storage since they started the concept. On the 360 its all these little things it does which makes live worthy of the forty a year I give for it. This is my opinion and I know it wont be popular as I dont praise Sony very much anymore.

I'm a little upset, TT2 causes my PS3 to crash now.
