Sony PlayStation 3 users are reporting their SIXAXIS controllers are no longer detected by their PS3s. To get the controller to be recognized again by the console, users have to repeatedly plug in the controller via USB to sync it to the console.

this story to get an idea of how many PS3 owners on this site are actually experiencing this issue - mainly the sixaxis connectivity. I haven't experienced any of this. Not the resolution problems nor the console "crashing" upon paying a visit to the Playstation store. My controllers respond just fine, and yes I have downloaded and installed the latest update. I simply noticed a new PlayStation account management icon under the friends section of network play after the update. What's so bad about that? The only time I have to plug in the usb cable to controller to the PS3 is if I'm hooking it up between consoles. I have a 60g and a 20g and if I disconnect a controller to go to the other one I have to plug in the usb to re sync - kind of a pain in the butt, but nothing earth-shattering. It will be interesting to see just how many people are experiencing this because I think its a little overblown. My systems have worked flawlessly since I've pulled 'em out of the box, except for running Genji (they hate that game). And no, I haven't beaten Resistance.

Ya even if people do have the problem, it could be worse. Not a big deal.

I really don't see why so many people are making such a mountain out of this update. It's only one of many and all you have to do is go to the Sony website to get the official info / purpose. If it;s somehting that's not going to directly affect game/movie playback or increases system performance then why waste time trying to explain every little update when you can look it up. If they are installing security updates and better protection then what is the need for line by line detail on every little detail. XBOX live patches and Windows is patched and problems fixed routinely and no one seems to get there feathers ruffled from that. Last time I checked SNE manafactures computers too - so do they have the right to offer patches? This almost seems to be offensive. Good Grief. A/W Here it is:

Well in regards to the controller all I have to do is press a couple of buttons to SYNC my WIFI 360 pad, not mess around with inferior technology such as bluegoof ;-)

probabily the high frequency of the wireless have burn your brain, use wireless for a controller it's totally useless, you don't need to play with your 360 from 50 meters and wireless it's more easy to disturb with other electronic devices, bluetooth it's much more better because have lower frequency, the speed is much slower but you don't need transfer speed for the controller

Do a lil bit more research before u speak. The 360's wireless pad doesnt interfer with any other electronic device, i should know, i have one
