TheSixthAxis: "We've heard this morning that a minor Firmware update is due very soon: 2.36. The update is a tiny one apparently to strengthen security and fix a few PS3 titles, according to a poster on NeoGAF."
ugh not again
don't be sad ! Do you want your PS3 gets 3 Red rings of death ?
if not, so download the FWs
i dont think no one is NOT goin to DL it. The "ah mans" and "hope its rumors" stems from the anticipation of wanting that golden '2.4' update we all are anxiously waiting for. And i think if u have a PSNID u hav to DL the FW arbitrarily anyway.
i would rather want sony working hard on 2.40 with in-game XMB then for them to be fixing some stupid security...
I still dont understand why it's such a big deal to have in game xmb... i personally want in game HOME... press the PS button and you're back at Home... now I'd shed tears of joy for that.
2.36 2.365 2.37 2.378 2.381 2.386 2.389 2.3999 OMG FINALLYYYY 2.3999999 ($hIt)
The Blog is going to get slammed when they announce it. If this is true then I don't expect 2.40 until after or during E3. That sucks!
sony is probably going to bring all it's firepower to E3 and thats going to be one of them
Poor Jeff Rubenstein. Much blog spamming will definitely be on the way when they announce this.
I will wait and see. Why don't they just release it with 2.4
Maybe(And this is just a GUESS),Sony want to make 2.40 one of the big announcements for their presentation? I'm pretty positive in-game XMB would make a lot of sites/blogs headlines.
I told you all that this was going to happen. Sev or whoever argued with me and you all told me I was a liar. I told oyu That one of the guys on the Psblog confirmed that 2.4 wouldn't come until mid July the night of the late psn update.
When and what version of a firmware will come out. This is true for both PS3 and PSP. Take every post like this, and look at it from an passemistic viewpoint.
*chanting "we want 2.4"*
Why tease us with this? 2.4 should have been here a week ago! and still we get the run-around. WTF???? give us what we should of had to start with.
Sony never said anything about a release date on 2.4. But I'm still pretty mad that the chances of us getting 2.4 this month has dropped significantly if this is actually true.
not only that, but you know what, this firmware is gonna pretty much change A LOT i'm guessing around 60% of how the ps3 software works... and if they find anything... they have to make sure is not gonna ruin any ps3s... can you imagine if they ruined thousands of ps3s... this firmware is just way to dangerous to release without making sure is perfect... is gonna change the psn as we know it into xbox live... as much as i wanted you know what.. i think i rather wait
i agree with you firmware 2.40 might change the xmb interface alot ill rather get a firmware bug free than getting a messed up ps3 as long as it gets here i dont really care just want sony to do what is right
It was Sev1512....I'm pretty sure he was just promoting his site, but those videos confirmed in-game XMB is coming.
Well Sony really dropped the ball on the in-game XMB. It's been almost a damn year Sony, seriously. Maybe Microsoft needs to stick their interface more in YOUR face to get the bigger picture.
...I would rather want Sony to fix the bugs in that firmware update than for something to go haywire and people start burning their PS3's at the stake.
If you bought a PS3, you should of as in informed consumer known what the product offered. Anything beyond that is a bonus, so quit your whining and be patient!
OMFG cant believe people actually buying this crap? Because one user on NeoGaf posts that 2.36 will come it even hits N4G lOl. Get a life ;)
There is no reason to bash or whatever, Sony never officially announced 2.40.
and sony still hasn't officially announced this one also. so I'll keep hoping it's just a rumor. it's not fun downloading firmwares every so often.
before christmas, they said 2.40 would feature ingame xmb, and would be available no later than summer 08.
Hate to be the one to point it out, but summer doesnt begin until June 21st.
Oh COME ON....just hold off and GIVE US TWO-POINT-FOUR-O!
2.36.....who the f*ck are they kidding?
Who? The "insiders"? Sony hasn't said anything, they haven't "kid" anyone.
Hey back off buddy, Sony said they were gonna stop with the bullsh*t incremental updates and continue with less-frequent, LARGER updates.
Not this 2.30, 2.35, 2.36 crap.
It's really starting to piss me off. Release a larger update instead of little crap all the time, and then being completely vague about any of the details, giving us "info" like "improves stability".
WTF is that? Please, be more detailed and actually say something to us that we can understand and not say "huh?" about.
They did say that. http://multiplayerblog.mtv.... On top of that 2.36 seems like 2.35. "minor update to improve stability of some PS3 titles." and this guy says it's enhancement of PS3 titles. http://www.neogaf.com/forum... Sounds like the same crap to me.
Regarding firmware, quoted directly from Eric Lempel a while back:
"We’re trying to certainly cut down on the amount of times we do it."
i feel ur pain man. but i think this update is to either improve or add something that will enable the 2.40 perform better. i read somewhere that they had some issues that why they didnt release it maybe this update fixes the issue they found and so before they can relase the 2.40 they have to fix that issue first.
Still no in-game XMB? When PSturd stops sucking, let me know. Then I'll be more than happy to buy one.
Q:Still no in-game XMB? When PSturd stops sucking, let me know. Then I'll be more than happy to buy one. A: When YOU stop sucking you can play PS3...meanhile you are not worth of it! stfu and stop making dumbass comments typical of a jealous xbot who can't play MGS4 and other masterpieces coming to PS3...YES, that is destroying your idiot mind...YOU CAN'T PLAY THEM! HAHAHAHAHA!
Unlike MS, Sony takes their time. Get over yourself troll.
"taking your time" and simply being too f*cking dumb and shortsighted as a company are too entirely different things :) open wide :O
Sorry, but I am not worried that Sony is not going to bring us all that they have stated in 2.4. At the moment, I am too busy playing some great games. Or at least right now, I am WAY too busy playing MGS4 to care about a firmware update. lol
Been staying up to between 3 and 5 am in the very early morning, every morning since launch. I am 18hrs into it on Act 5 and I think there are only 5 Acts. This is or has been a great game...must find time to sleep sometime.
sony ita all lies you know they are going to push it back and back and back leave us alone with those rumors and let us enjoy MGS 4...(the best game by the way) and the firmware will come when it comes
I don't suppose Sev is knocking about anywhere, and can confirm this?
lol. Sev has some good info and wrong info... but seriously, look what happened to past "insiders" that have released rumors in in-game XMB on this site. I never see any of them anymore! lol
I am here, and I CAN confirm this. I was waiting for the ok from my source if I could post this information. It looks like someone at NeoGAF beat me to it. FW 2.40 will be around E3 to help build momentum. BTW @ Drekken? What wrong info? The June 10th date, that we said time and time again that it was subject to change?
SEV, I do appreciate the info and happen to like your updates. I was just speculating on what has happened to misinformed insiders in the past. I read your post about not posting anymore dates, which is a wise decision. I dont know who got 6/10 as the 2.4fw date... but whenever "insiders" get fans all excited and then turn to be wrong... heads roll.
wow sony im sure theres not that big of a reason to not just take whats in 2.36 and wait to just put it in the 2.4 update... its kinda like slapping everyone in the face.
Hey guys, look, we update our consoles! Pff, give it to us now, you've waited long enough.
what is the point of the small updates? just merge the 2.36, 2.37, 2.38, 2.39 all into 2.4, that way everyone is happy, i mean instead of small updates, just release the big picture! oh well i still love my baby (ps3, that is) and nothing is going to change that
sony, why the HE11 can't you get your sh1t organized enough to stop with these mindless, repetitive, small fw downloads???!!!!! just wait till next big update and add these smaller updates to it.
COME ON SONY, THINK FIRST.
edit: and there are other things people really want like the "in-game xmb" so why not give this out now? why keep forcing people to do small, meaningless updates when there is other stuff people want and you ignore it.
Sony announced a while ago they were going to release major updates and tone down the frequency. If they release a 2.36 the 2.40 will be announced within a few weeks and we have 2 updates within a month of each other right there.
I think this info is bogus. 2.40 will include security updates to make sure it actually works for starters. This news appears (to me) to be boiled out of wanting to get people riled up over firmware updates.
2.40 is coming, that's a given. As to when? No one really knows for sure, so stop complaining about it's release date when Sony haven't officially announced anything.
well unless 2.36 is to fix and test whatever problems they are havingwith the debugging of 2.4 :)
ok here's an off topic question my ps3 died today.. and its soooooooo boring now. should i wait till e3 to buy a new one or should i buy the metal gear bundle now thanks.... on topic i can wait till mid july np i just hope it doesnt get delayed
buy a used one
I have given up on 2.4 until E3. I would truly be shocked if it came before or after E3.
My guess is that it will be announced for immediate download at the conference
From what i heard firmware 2.4 will have ingame XMB and rewards similar to achievements, however on most games the "Black" quit game screen will still be used due to technical probablems.....also some of the more advanced games will reqired an update.
This is BS and hopefully 2.40 comes out tomorrow i really want it now :)
You do know that Sony shown in game XMB on the PS3 like a year before it came out. Kinda weird how 2 years after its come out and its still not here, taking so long.
new firmware every 2 weeks. whatever happened to "waiting til a system is finished before releasing it?" that's a quote i read from a ps3 fangirl about 360 on another forum. seems like it should apply even more here.
Tired of these useless updates? Bring on 2.4 already. These tiny "updates" are annoying and don't bring much to the table.
Oh good, I would hate to go through a whole month or two without getting a firmware upgrade.
great ... another delay. at this pace 2.4 wont come till home does! sometime near duke nukems release date.
How you doing? Anyway, Sony didn't delay sh!t (besides Home). They have never said it would come in June. The only official anything said Summer and its still Spring last time I checked. July would be Summer though so right on schedule I guess.
well i do remember them saying it would be out when mgs4 was out. mgs4 has been out since 4 days ago.
...you mean Sony, you're wrong. Sony never said anything like that. Someone who is not Sony may have said that. There were RUMORS it would be out the 10th. Theres a rumor saying it will hit the 18th. I'm sure its wrong also. It doesn't have a date until Sony officially announces the Firmware on the Official Blog. Even then they will just say "soon" and never give a date. It will come within a few days of when they say "soon". It may have been scheduled for the 10th but ended up needing a little more work. I think they tried but it just had some bugs left. I'll bet that it will be out within the next 30 days or so. Thats just a guess though. They may "delay" it again. lol
All the hype of the MGS4 release (and awesome game), and we seemly forgot all about a huge issue that plagued another legion of fans: That whole GTA4 freezing issue. Maybe they finally fixed THAT and want to get that patch out NOW. Or maybe they found a security hole or some issues with games locking when they shouldn't. What I'm saying is that if this is true, don't think this does anything to 2.4! Remember, there ARE some issues that, when found, must be fixed ASAP! Before any additional features, they must make sure that everything is alright with the system as it is now. It's all a matter of priority. And remember, there are some PS1 and PS2 games that have unresolved issues when you play them on the BC-able PS3s that they want to fix. They could've fixed THOSE issues, as well, and are wanting to get that update out there because of so many people buying the MGS4 bundle that had BC (imagine the uproar people would make if one of the biggest features of the model of system they got render their favorite PS1/2 game(s) virtually unplayable, or there are quirks about how the PS3 plays them that are too distracting). When they said they wouldn't release these firmware updates all the time, they didn't mean that they wouldn't fix issues with the system or the games that people may have. You really want for Sony to just IGNORE those issues that require immediate attention just because they said something like that, or you really want 2.4 to come out that much that you want them to ignore that you can't play a certain game in the interim? PLEASE, guys, show some common SENSE here! I want to see 2.4, as well, but if they discovered a way to fix certain issues with one of my games I bought that they can fix NOW, then by all means, LET THEM DO THAT NOW!!
nice one dude ha ha
