Seems like a really good update. Finally can hide my trophies that are 0% lists!

Love that their still updating despite ps4 around the corner.
This is why we love you sony.
Shane Kim  +   293d ago
I think these updates are just because of that. To get the best online experience before (and after) PS4 is released.

I would agree with Shane Kim.

They just want to streamline everything and create similar experiences on both platforms (PS3 and PS4).

I wouldn't be surprised if the PSP got an update that did a similar thing.

On the side of trophies, this is really neat. I wish I could also delete those 0% lists of games that I no longer have, but this is a welcomed update!

I've hidden some games that have 0% completion yet when I go to PSNProfiles.com they are still showing and affecting my completion ratio. Any ideas why?

It doesn't actually remove the games from your profile, so they are going to still show up on sites like PSNprofiles.com.

earn a trophy and sync your profile then update your profile on the site and they should be gone

Because it only hides them from other people....Which is where I think people are getting confused...It doesn't remove them from your list it doesn't take them out of anything, it just stops everyone else online from seeing them when they look at your profile they are all still there for you

What taco_tom said. Earn a trophy then sync.
Deadpoolio  +   293d ago
From other people....Why exactly are people so excited about being able to hide trophies again from other people....It still stays plainly visible in your list when you view it....

I don't see the point of the hiding trophies feature.

Some people feel trophy notifications break immersion in certain games. That is why Heavy Rain only gave you trophies after you completed a level, as opposed to mid-mission. Lone Survivor straight up tells you to turn off trophies when you start the game, in order to not break the sense of immersion.

That's not what this us. Hiding trophy notifications has been around for a couple months.

Jup. I remember finishing Uncharted 3, right at the moment where gameplay stopped and the last cinematic started BLING the trophy showed up and the cinematic continued. It didn't ruin the experience but I remember I didn't like it, could have been postponed untill the credits.

I like they fixed it. And the horrible mandatory Sing Star icon in the gamesection is gone too:)

I can't find out how to transfer stuff between the Vita and PS3 via WiFi.

Maybe the Vita is getting a firmware update to allow it, soon.
gano  +   292d ago
To be honest that and the trophy hiding does not work for me.
Is this just meir what, but i agree. They need a secnd update.

Tiny ass update took me nearly 15 minutes to download and install. My internet is about 15 m/b so it's not my internet. I hate PS3 updates.

Waaaaaaahhhhhhh! 1st world problems. Deal with it.
SaulGoodman  +   292d ago
I know this sounds like trolling to some, but Playstation is taking a steamroller to X1. I don't think theres any doubt left that Sony will not be the victor in this console war. I know they haven't started yet but I've had an epiphany...and PS4 wins.
