PlayStation 3 Owners Revolt Over Firmware Update 4.30

Push Square: "As is so often the case online, people aren’t happy. The PlayStation 3’s latest firmware update arrived earlier this week with a couple of admittedly eyebrow-raising additions. Alongside the ability to check Vita Trophies on the console, the update also implemented SingStar into the XMB, and moved some of the key components of the dashboard around."

What are your thoughts on the latest PS3 firmware update? Is the SingStar icon driving you insane? (PS3)

Really people are Revoting over an icon?

am usually not on the XMB too long, am ether playing a game or watching a movie(netflix, blu ray or amazon prime)

Its just an Icon people for a free game(mic not included), if you want to play it, play it. if you dont, dont just sit there and stare at the icon, lol

Yeah, I've been having a conversation over at another forum about this and normally sane people are complaining like children. They can't understand why I have no problem with it. It's ONE icon and a game for FREE. Yes, you have to buy tracks, but there are plenty of second hand copies out there that would work with this DLC version.
get2sammyb  +   1206d ago
I don't think it's the inclusion of the game -- or, indeed, the icon -- that's causing the issue. I think most people are fine with the addition of SingStar to the XMB -- but I think it's the placement of the icon that's getting people down. For example, if you don't have a Blu-ray inserted, the PS3 defaults to showing SingStar. And it also creates a barrier between the disc and your PSN games. That is a teensy bit frustrating.

As suggested in the article, the problem could be solved if the icon was moved to the Music section of the XMB.
GribbleGrunger  +   1206d ago
Well, maybe they will at a later date. Clearly Sony want to promote Singstar (which isn't for everyone) but who can blame them. They provide AAA titles on a regular basis and give us 44 games a year plus discounts on PS+. I for one think that Sony deserves some understanding here.
get2sammyb  +   1206d ago
I don't disagree, and I'm sure they will move it after the backlash. It's going to remain an irritation -- no matter how minor -- for the time being, though.

Not saying anything about the 'Cion-Problem' as such but your argument is kind of weired:

"They can't understand why I have no problem with it. It's ONE icon and a game for FREE. Yes, you have to buy tracks, but there are plenty of second hand copies out there that would work with this DLC version."

If you buy a used game for the tracks you don't need the Icon. If you don't buy a disc (or tracks in the store) the Icon is useless. So as an argument pro icon because it is free that doesn't seem to make sense to me.
GribbleGrunger  +   1206d ago
Why? I can get Singstar games for £3. One of the secondary arguments against this icon on some of the forums I frequent is the necessity to buy tracks online. I'm just offering an alternative for those who want to get a full collection of tracks for a few quid rather than buying each track at a premium.

On the main issue, I have no problem.

edit: Ok, perhaps I should have paragraphed it to show I'm talking about two different elements

'Yeah, I've been having a conversation over at another forum about this and normally sane people are complaining like children. They can't understand why I have no problem with it. It's ONE icon and a game for FREE.

I'll hit your agree because I did make it look like it was the same argument :)

get2sammyb  +   1206d ago
I think the point that Kuv1977 was making is if you do buy a disc for £3, there's not need for the icon to be there in the first place because, well, you bought the disc.
GribbleGrunger  +   1206d ago
There IS a reason for the Icon to be there. Those that use Singstar and enjoy it are less likely to complain about the icon. These people will gladly buy each track from the store once they are aware of its existence. You have to understand that many of these people don't bother to download new tracks because they're not aware the store exists. Having to download it means they'll more likely move to online distribution and so actually discover the store.

The people who are complaining the most are your core/hardcore gamer, who find it intrusive because they have little interest in Singstar. For these people, the argument invariable goes: 'It's intrusive and I have to buy tracks anyway, so it's not actually free.' Well, my alternative, whilst not inexhaustible, is at least an answer for these people. It's not an answer to their gripes, but it reduces the two fold problem by one.

Bare in mind that this version of Singstar is a better version of the one you get on discs; which are not upgradeable.

is there such a thing as having a default icon on the PS3 xmb? Im in the US so i cant experience what EU people are seeing but I can say that when I turn on my PS3 it varies what icon it defaults to.

In most cases it defaults to whatever was the las app I was using. I turned it on this morning and after boot up the icon it landed on was joe danger which happened to be the last game i played when i shut down prior.

i think before that it started on the netflix icon because i was watching netflix before that. So I really am asking if what people are seeing is in fact a default that will always be this singstar regardless of the previous shutdown.

And honestly, when mine starts up and i see the background for whatever it was last i had done, i move the screen to what i want to do and the background changes to that.

Why the uproar when you can change the look in less than 5 seconds?
r1sh12  +   1206d ago
How does this article even get approved?
It says 835 people (at the time or writing I assume) are complaining.
Im just taking 60 million ps3 sales (just for arguments sake, I dont really care what the actual number is).
That makes 0.00139% how can it makes news?
KUV1977  +   1206d ago
Actually I am one of the guys who plays Singstar fairly regularly and I have been wondering for a long time why they didn't put out a free app like this. They wouldn't lose any money because I would still have to buy tracks and I would still need some mics. Also I have about 120 bought songs and only ever used the discs for starting the game and then navigated around the disc tracks I did not want in the first place but needed to start the game. So basically I am pro free-Singstar.

However, I still don't get why they couldn't offer a free download in the store where you can then choose the icon to be in whichever folder you like but instead insist on putting it into everyone's face. Why choose an option that is guaranteed to make everyone happy when you can have an option that annoys at least part of your fan base, right? Now while I personally can live with that I also understand why people would be upset about starting the PS3, not having a game inside, and then having to look at the terrible promoshot of people wearing goofy clothes and especially the guy who apparently sings through his teeth. But it is just one more inconsistency in the XMB-UI (others being app-backdrops of extremely varying quality and style).

Some of you really sound like Sony spokespersons.

get2sammyb and KUV1977 made legit remarks that are hard to disagree with, without in any way bashing Sony. Yet GribbleGrunger defends it to death and thinks anything Sony does is positive. How could they do wrong?

The rest of the commenters try to steer away from the real topic and make it seem as if it's about the addition of an icon, when what's being discussed is the affect on the navigation and user experience.

An hour later you see the same people crying their eyes out over ads on Xbox Live. And if someone was to state that they haven't noticed any except for games related stuff such as campaigns on Arcade games etc they would call you them liars.

Amazing how stuff works here.

Do they really think their advert is more valuable than my games I bought and actually want to play. Also is this sign of things to come in next-gen? Adverts sitting on top of your games you downloaded without option to delete. I will think twice about it when next-gen hardware arrive.

As always, the internet takes up the "justice torch" way too vehemently, but I don't think it's "ridiculous" to be upset with a shameless, intrusive advertisement.

I understand that companies need to get their products out there, but there are MUCH more eloquent, consumer-friendly ways of doing it than this.
Wigriff  +   1206d ago
No, it isn't ridiculous to be upset; it's ridiculous to act the way that they are over such a small, asinine issue. It really doesn't significantly impact anyone's experience with their PS3.

I can see where not being able to delete the icon could be mildly irritating, and you should be able to delete it, but it's still a pretty small matter. People are actually acting outraged and becoming verbally abusive over it. That's what is ridiculous.

Good post though, Bimkoblerutso, and thanks MetalProxy.

Yeah there not really its a joke. I mean if people honestly cared you would see 360 owners up in arms every 2 minutes about differnt ad panels etc.. They got it a lot worse they pay a yearly fee to play online and get ads on there dash. I feel some people do whine as I seen it but its the minority.
FragMnTagM  +   1206d ago
The only people I know that whine about it are ardent Sony fanboys.

The tiny little ads in the corner that are 95% gaming related and tailored to your interests to boot, don't bother me one bit.

At least you are not forced to hear or watch them as the sound is disabled unless you navigate to it. Whereas on TV, you are forced into watching commercials unless you want to channel surf and lose a few seconds here and there of your show. Also people pay WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more for cable and are fine with ridiculously stupid ads that you are pretty much forced to watch.

I have never heard anyone on my friends list ever complain about it.

It is just a bullet point for arguments against the 360 basically.

And where does it stop ?, should every "free" game to release on ps3 be added to our xmb too, regardless if the owner of the console wants it or not..?
Simple to have it available to download from psn for whoever wants it, the only reason they sticking it in our faces is the same as the drug dealer model, give some for free and hopefully get as many people as possible hooked, until they spend,spend,spend

It seems like this is the problem. I think it would make much more sense on the music section.

Seems like a simple solution, really.

Sony are cluttering the XMB up and people hate clutter. Those people who can't understand why people are hating on Sony for randomly super-gluing random games to the XMB are brain dead.

DarthJay  +   1206d ago
For the same reason people complain about ads on Xbox Live. Both can be completely ignored. Both are completely unnecessary.

By forcing the game onto the dashboard, they are advertising their product and hoping it will drum up more sales. Who is to say they won't start doing the same for other products? And yes, I get that you can equally say who is to say they will.

I don't want any of the stuff I didn't download on my dashboard, personally, but I'm also not going to make a big deal about it, just like I don't care about the ads on Xbox Live.
Hicken  +   1206d ago
I don't know if they're the same. Similar, yes, but I don't know about the same situation. One is a potential revenue generator, dependent upon consumer action; the other generates revenue simply by its existence.

That aside, I can hardly see this as being a big deal. At best, it's an extra half-second of shifting from one icon to the next. WHERE it is can't possibly be this big of a deal.

Vortex3D  +   1206d ago
What I want to see is the default "reinstalled" XMB icons are grouped inside a folder or invisible if I never run them. They are just empty icons anyway without the app. Sony is trying too hard trying to get us to use many of their online apps and think if they put the empty shell icons all over the XMB, users will use them. Wrong. All they do is making a mess on XMB.
smashcrashbash  +   1206d ago
So you guys are griping over a SINGLE icon. *sits down*. Is this the level we have reached? Just a bunch of petty whiners? You are revolting over a SINGLE icon placement? I understand if it might be an annoyance but REVOLT? Really? I mean did Sony get all the dipsticks and psychos or something? 838 posts about an icon? I have chanced my whole perception of PlayStation owners. People say they are the worst and I defend them. But I am starting to lean in the direction of agreeing with them. It's not even constructive complaints. Just a whole lot of noise.You complain when you have a real problem. But if you complain a the drop of a hat about EVERYTHING you just sound like a whiny little brat or a drama queen.
DigitalRaptor  +   1206d ago
Read my comment and PirateThom's above smash. #18.2

I understand what you are saying and a "revolt" can be considered going too far, but this is not just about the icon's placement. People complained on the blog, Nina Scherer (meant to be a professional Sony PR rep) gave out borderline offensive responses and cheeky replies to people who were requesting them to take down the icon or give us a choice to remove it ourselves. Instead of acknowledging these complaints, she openly mocked gamers and ignored the issue as if paying customers' opinions are not relevant.

There was no "I'll look into it", or anything. She said something along the lines of "it's not going away so get used to it". PR reps can't do things like that and not expect elevated levels of annoyance.

The revolt is going really far and all I did was complain, but not only is the icon annoying and something that is forced, but the way in which it was handled was poor, unacceptable and unprofessional.

smashcrashbash  +   1206d ago
If that is the case I understand that a little more but 838 posts? Over a slight annoyance that could probably be fixed or changed? All that rage and pointless anger over something like this? I mean I am sure that more then half the posts were not polite or reasonable complaints which is why the person probably opted eventually for sarcasm and 'cheeky' replies. And I am certain even if they had said 'We will look into it' there would be twice as many posts.Instead of flying off the handle suggest that maybe they could do something to fix what is bothering you.

But if I know PlayStation gamers the posts were probably full of over dramatic 'I hate Sony' and 'This will probably mean more product placement' and 'this is the most horrible thing EVER in the history of Sony' and stuff like that. You learn that is you want respect you give it first and if the person is being difficult you don't behave difficult right back because you get nothing done doing that.I never said don't complain about anything but you grab the pitchforks and torches and start lighting things on fire before you even try to be civil. I doubt very much the PR rep didn't start off being rude and I am certain people started off with curses and saying nasty things before she even said anything.

I have heard enough rudeness on the Blog to realize that even when the person talking tries to be reasonable or respectful people don't do the same. I was listening to someone having the nerve to tell a person that their game wasn't worth the price before they even played it or knew what it was about telling him it should be five dollars.So even though the PR lady did not answer your complaints in the best way possible I think that the melodrama and 'revolt' was unnecessary and her behavior doesn't excuse theirs. I am not excusing her behavior but as usual PlayStation owners always can be seeing taking the low road and being an embarrassment just like with the Bayonetta announcement. 838 posts is for something devastatingly problematic not because of an icon that doesn't affect your system's functions in any way and a less then enthusiastic PR person. I mean admit it. Would people have been satisfied if she had said 'I will look into it'? Unlikely. People weren't even satisfied when Omar of PSABR said 'Stay tuned'

Singstar isn't even on my PS3, I don't know why. Only thing that changed is the trophy icon that goes to network. It doesn't even bother me. As for the thing that is loaded by default when I have no disc? It's the last game I played.

Singstar I got no comment. I personally have the game, so I am not quite bothered if it is there or not. But I do not understand the rage over the placement of Trophies icon. In fact I like how it is now as I see it more like an improvement than anything else. Defaulted as online mode for the trophy is a nice thing. Dont need to sync almost every freaking time I launch the trophy which usually take forever to complete (and some times even end up with an error and had to resync again). Then they also included the offline mode which is switchable if people still prefer toe old school method of how the trophies are being handled (which personally I find no reason to go back to unless there's a special reason to). Also moving the trophies to PSN section as oppose to keeping it at game section makes complete sense. Trophies are suppose to be part of PSN, especially given that now it has an online mode which is an integration to the network system. So I dont see why the fuss. But in any case people will find anything to complain about. Since you can never satisfy everyone in whatever you do.

I didn't notice the new icon, since I don't play Singstar. I guess I was too busy enjoying playing games to bother complaining about an icon on the XMB.

Didn't even notice, people really need to get their lives in order if something like that bothers them so much.

I think you've used hyperbole to the extreme here.
