Add PS4 style trophy support.

What does that mean?

I DON'T KNOW BUT I WANT IT!

That's cool. About time to be honest.
Lockon  +   468d ago
Would be cool if they updated the XMB a bit.
Ju  +   468d ago
I'd hope Sony would update the interface to match the PS4 (without the fancy PS4 features). Same interface on both consoles would be nice - eventually.
Clover904  +   468d ago
Wha--?! You're not planning on upgrading? The new interface does look nice.
Ju  +   468d ago
I'll sure do. But I won't throw my PS3 away, now, would I.
Liefx  +   468d ago
I like the XMB. Clean, shows your content. The new interface looks kind of confusing to me.

getting sick of these stupid unnecessary updates :(

@ JoGam

so this update about trophy notification options and improved system stability is necessary? no

Um, there's no such thing of unnecessary updates. I think every update is needed. If not Sony wouldn't release it.

I don't even think he has a PS3 lol ;)
infamousinfolite  +   468d ago
I don't think he does. Everyone of these articles has that one guy who says "I hate these'meaningless update'" followed by "security updates is security updates".

On-topic: I probably won't use this feature, maybe, gotta see in the long run.
HammadTheBeast  +   468d ago
Well, for my $50 a year I get automatic updates, and never see them anymore.

:D
Corpser  +   468d ago
Congrats to ... Having to pay for automatic updates

You sick about your imaginary PS3?
j-blaze  +   468d ago
whatever...believe it or not, i have not one, but 3 ps3s at my home :)
LKHGFDSA  +   468d ago
Well better late never with the trophy muting.

I'm guessing "system stability" means anti-piracy measures.
coolasj  +   468d ago
Nah. If I recall, that usually just goes under System Security. Straight up.
Shadow Man  +   468d ago
after the latest update you tube started to lag, it was fine before and i have 12 mbs.
Godmars290  +   468d ago
Actually had more issues with it on my PC.
feraldrgn  +   468d ago
Youtube's made a change at some point recently, several people can't get YT videos to play at all, or they just buffer & stall.

On PC.

Instant syncing trophies please.
TriangleOffense  +   468d ago
I cant even remember the last time I saw an update, gotta love PS+ for doing this crap for me so I can get right to games
Rhezin  +   468d ago
HOW BOUT CHANGING THE PS STORE BACK TO WHAT IT WAS? that sound good?....
The_Infected  +   468d ago
How about make a new playstation store that is awesome and not crappy ones. The last one was ok but they need to make a great store all around including looks and functionality not one or the other. I hope with PS4 it changes completely for the better.

i use the pc version....much better for most things imho
toxic-inferno  +   468d ago
Me too. With PS Plus, I just tell my PS3 to download something from my PC, and the next time I turn my PS3 on, the game is usually waiting for me. So easy :)
Williamson  +   468d ago
I love FW updates! Look at where the ps3 was 5-6 years ago and now its as if its a brand new system.
Drabent  +   468d ago
Damn I stopped playing last of us multiplayer and the update popped up>< did this just go live???
GenericNameHere  +   468d ago
I forge which game it was, but I was in a quiet section of the game, and the trophy sound suddenly popped. It wasn't even a horror game, but that made me jump a little lol

Trophy notification options are cool though. I read this one person's comment who said the trophy sound on Journey broke the immersion for him. Yay for options!
Rhythmattic  +   468d ago
Actually Im waiting for my Copy of TLOU to turn up in the mail...and from what ive heard from a few people here is the trophy notification did break the immersion..

So , even though I have to wait, my first play-through will be with Notification off thanks to my now downloaded 4.45 FW.

Voyevoda  +   468d ago
About time.
Just read about system stability. But it took them 6+ years for someone to think of the idea for turning on and off trophy notifications?
The_Infected  +   468d ago
I was reading over at Playstation Lifestyle that nearly everyone was having major issues after the update where they couldn't get past they wave screen.

Oh dear... I wish I read your comment before I updated... It seems the problem is with PS3's and 1Tb Drives...

I have 1 tb drive..... :(
The_Infected  +   468d ago
Hopefully you will get lucky and it not happen to you!
Rhythmattic  +   468d ago
It has....

Get ready for this to be a big big issue...

After all the good work Sony have done recently, they are going to be cannon fodder....

I downloaded it, and Sackboy kept on running (love that Dynamic Theme of Sackboy running around on the planet). My PS3 Slim did start making a really loud noise again, after almost a year of silence. Oh well, that's probably my own fault for putting my PS3 somewhere where there's no wind or cooling fan at all.
AIndoria  +   468d ago
Sony literally threw a brick at our faces with this :P
feraldrgn  +   468d ago
I'd like the option to hide or delete my trophy data for games I have 0% on.

(You test a game out, find you don't like it & can't get rid of the trophy data, it's a bit of a pain for those of us who are tidy freaks.)

i still love my ps3 i won't update until they fix it
zodiac909  +   468d ago
LOL so much for "system stability improvement" ;)
maurice27  +   467d ago
the update lets you turn off friends and trophy notifications
