There are reports that PS3 Firmware 2.41 will arrive before Wednesday.
2.41...not bad at all that its coming so soon. They should of got it in there first shot but this is really good that they came up with this update quickly. my sis still hasnt had hers updated and so hasnt my brother...i was the only one rubbing it in there faces that I had the update(they are always nasty to me, why cant I be nasty to them) but now i can tell them it will be out this week :)
i haven't personally have any problems or know anyone who has but for the people who haven't updated or having problems this is a good thing.Its pretty cool on sony part to react so fast and you never know we maybe seeing something else new in the update dare I say flash 9 upgrade for the browser:)
Hopefully all of you will be able to get it with no problem. BTW, I didn't pick up StarDust but I have been messaging my friends like crazy. And added someone right there on the spot last night from COD4. Loving 2.40 so far. Can't wait for custom soundtracks and Trophies in more games from this point on.
I love in game messaging,now I can spam those annoying team killers with abusive messages with out having to leave the game.
my mate got his 2.4 early and was bragging about how god it was, when i said i couldnt download it as it was taken down. But turns out, he is the only ps3 user i know that has massive lag with his online and his headset doesnt work because of it lol. release 2.41 quickly :D
Good news for those who have been sat twiddling their thumbs in anticipation. Nearly there guys :) ~side note~ In future whats the chance of using the source so I dont have to jump through websites ( http://www.computerandvideo...
omg 2.41 i had suspicions that they may have changed it from 2.40 to 2.41 so maybe that any1 who had 2.40 it wud maybe fix or make thier systems run smoother i hope that they may have added maybe a few small things in the update coming soon but i highlt doubt it.
Doubt that very much.. this 2.41 release is for the unfortunate few who have 2.4 installed and screwed their system - I suspect they will be more than happy to have this released so quickly :)
I imagine everyone (even those with 2.4) will be prompted to upgrade to 2.41, it makes more sense to have everyone on the same build and there will probably be a few stability fixes and what not also in 2.41 that weren't in 2.4.
every time there's an update available, you're kinda being force to update your PS3 to the latest version in order to go online! so, 2.41 is not exactly only for whom had screwed up at 2.40 but it's for everybody! actually this is just like what I've expected since they pulled the 2.40! I actually have no problem with it offline but I'm having a slight lag during online match in FIFA08 and COD4 after I updated! theyu're playable but still anoyying especially in FIFA!! did anybody else having this problem? I think I read somewhere in N4G that someone also lagging in CoD4 after 2.40. I hope 2.41 can come very soon and all these problem will be solved!
Unfortunately those of us affected by the 2.40 mishap won't be able to download and install 2.41 until our PS3's are fixed. My unit is on it's way to the local service center for a nice couple week holiday :(
zero problems with 2.40, but hopefully the very very small minority that have, will be fixed with this update. I wonder how the XBOTS will spin this one. Either way, 2.40 > LIVE.
Me to, no problems at all. Never have had with a update. The xBots can say what they like...Just tell them to go and look at the front page of this site!!! ;-D i.e '$990m Bill for Xbox Red Ring of Death' ;-D Oh dear!!!;o)
Why dont Sony fix what they broke first which is 2.40 before coming out with something else, 2.41 will just brick the remaining PS3s. @ Ken why dont you have a look at this: http://www.n4g.com/industry...
Anyone should be smart enough to know that 2.41 IS the fix for 2.4, and you would have to be retarded to think that 2.4 bricked any PS3's. Bricked is what happens when your XBOX gets that shiny red ring, freezing is what happened with 2.4, and even that is inconclusive. You fail, tremendously.
i have no problem with 2.40. i love it! Sorry to hear that minority of people experience that problem. Hear that? MINORITY NOT MAJORITY
I can only see PS3 fans comments!!! ;-D '48' ignores!!! On my 'Sir Ken Kutaragi PS3 Trophy Awards' ;) God i was busy yesterday!;) @MaximusPrime ;) Yeah your right it was a 'MINORITY' I don't know any PS3 owners that i know that have had a problem with it??? This sounds worse...'$990m Bill for Xbox Red Ring of Death' ;-D
I LOVE the pun! - the BILL! Haha! Bill's Bill for his Rancid Ringpiece of Dire-consoles.
I'm all good too. I like that clock addon. VERRRRY handy, because I remember those nights where I would forget what time it was. xP And Omega, 2.4 ONLY affected a few people. Stop spreading your ridiculous lies and continue sucking MS's c*ck. Thanks.
k i wont be asleep or outside.
I told you girls that FONY would realease a new update to fix the garbage they took out last week just like they do for every update.FONY are great with their software.hahahahaha
That's nice for those who didn't get the update, but I hate how long it takes to do an update. It's like instead of simply having us download some tiny patch, they make us download the whole firmware everytime there's an update.
I dont get that, whenever i do an update it takes no more than 5 minutes tops to download and install
same for me.
Must be your connection. I along with the guys above me have no issues with the updates. They go pretty quick in fact.
It may take some time to download an update (I wouldn't say long) but think about what you are getting -- and for FREE! These things are either improving the system or improving gameplay. I love seeing that "you need to update your system" icon.
That's how I do it - much faster and a lot more stable. Depending on your connection, it should take about 5-15 minutes tops (file is about 120 megs)
@klashawnd: Thanks. That's a good idea. I'll try it next time. And thanks for thee suggestion guys, but my connection is fine. I can game online with little to no lag and download things on my PC at a decent pace. It may aso have to do with downloading the firmware updates the second they're available. Maybe too many people are doing the same.
Well, I was able to download the new FW in the first hour it came out. It worked fine, when I started noticing that whenever I close the browser it freezes. That I can only counter that by manually restarting the system. Then my GTA4 stall for a split second in several instances. Then it happened. I tried playing MGO Monday 12:10 AM Manila time. It locked up. I restarted manually and I was thankful that my system still reads all my games. However, it locks up every 5 or so minutes now on every games that I have. I hope this firmware resolves everything.
Im havin a fantastic time with my 2.40 unlocking trophies from Super Stardust HD! The day the firmware came out like everybody on the psn was playin it. lol
Just wanted to make sure this will be Sony's second attempt at 2.40. :)
but sony is just trying to make sure everybody is getting positive results from the update. i don't see anything bad about that.
Good find man, this is the best news for this incident lately, by far. this could have been a lot worse, like july 24th or something. One week is always better than two.
I got the update the night it came out on my 60gig(launch). I havne't noticed any problems yet. I played Grand theft Auto 4 also for about an hour jsut to test it since I heard that that's the number one game that has issues. Especially after the update. I even backed up all of my ps1,ps2, and ps3 game saves just to make sure. I have a lot of games. I'm really glad that Sony has acted so quickly. By this time November PS3 will be in Full Force. And now with 2.41 I think it will be a fresh start and I think we can have an official start with this update. I do hope that sony will constantly keep updating and adding stuff for us users.
This would sure be great! I know alot of people who didn't manage to get 2.40.. I would still like some explanation of what went wrong though..
With this on its way, do you think super stardust's update (4.00) will be back online then? yes? no?
it should be back as well i mean it wouldn't make sense not to put the patch up as well, i mean this game is the only game with trophy support thus far so it be in their best interest to re-release that patch as well.
Unless Sony have made changes (I'll do some digging for you guys). then naming a fixed firmware a .1 and making every have to update again who have had no problem's is stupid and a waste of time. But hopefully there will be something that justify this update. And Jordan, of cause it will be to let the pool people who's PS3 mess up get their Trophies.
Can you retype that please? haha :D didnt quite understand you there..
Sony will definitely have made changes, releasing the same firmware would be pointless. So everyone will need to update to this. Not a big deal really. And Jordan, I would think that the Super Stardust update will also go back online at the same time because, as jay said, everyone who didn't get it before will want to start earning trophies. :)
just want it. I didn't get in on it when it was initially released, so I'll take whatever version I can get at this point.
I doubt a week would have given them time to make any major changes. They probably just want to be on the safe side. You wouldn't want your console bricking after it worked for a few weeks.
well if the burnout patch is still set fopr the tenth (wich is thursday) then i see it coming this week as well. Unless it got delayed
to release this firmware when all current games mentioned to get patches are ready so straight off the bat people can start earning trophies in more than one game.
2.40 and 2.41 are not just adding trophies which not everyone cares about. The big thing these updates are bringing to the table is access to the XMB. I lucked out, I was able to get the 2.40 firmware and love it. The trophies are nice, don't get me wrong, but being able to access the friends list and everything is great. Looking forward to this Wednesday so my friends can get the same experiance I am currently having with 2.40.
There will be trophies in that game on the 10th! I believe they said it would be in the cagney patch...plus alot of other stuff.
You guys wish that will be happening just get used a poor online service
we don't have laggy Live. We don't need to get used to paying for lag or anything.
Wishing he could have a proper next-gen console. Poor little Xbot, with the Microflacid penis in his mouth. Go on, give it a kiss, and wink at yourself in the mirror, whilst you swallow Shane Kim's White Ring of Jizz Poor XBOT
xbot bullshittery at it's finest. Please, continue sucking that c*ck. Clearly you love the flavor!
Is it just me or over the last few days there have been loads of 'New'???(Hmm)xBot Lemmings joining this site??? Wonder which old name one he is??? I'm going to run out of 'Ignore' spaces!!! ;-D @juuken ;) You made me spill my 'Earl Grey Tea' ;) after reading your comment!!!;-D +I wouldn't trust 'BLUR111' :-/ he's the biggest sh*t-stirrer on this. Just read his 'Bio'
you're pretty good! :)
Now i gotta go play MGS4 again :D
to release this patch when it's ready. Don't care if it's next week or next month... I've waited over two years for this patch and waiting a little longer for a perfected service is not going to hurt me any.
What sites offer the firmware upgrades?
I have the update stored on my site if anybody would like to download it. addy: http://www.unitedchaos.ca/d... The file is like 130mb... could take a bit to download depending on your connection. I have no idea how long my server will hold out depending on how much traffic this creates.. I may have to pull it. Get it while it's hot!
if this link helped you, please let me know.
Bubbles for you.
I've said this before, 2.4 wasn't a problem. It did however freeze, I guess because I didn't let it settle, as soon as the install complete I jumped into a game. It froze when I tried to get into multiplayer games in cod4 and warhawk, but after I restarted the system everything worked fine. I could message while in a game of cod4 and anyother game I was playing. Now I need for us to have music while we play games.
Don't really care for the patch. I don't really message my friends on the PS3, mainly because I'm 20 and not 15, and no one I know owns a PS3 (xbox360 is more popular I guess). The thing I really want to see is effective use of trophies and rank. I liked this "Playstation Edge" idea, where your trophies accumulate towards discounts at the PSN store or extra game content. In fact, it would be a great way to promote DLC for games, ie. use trophies for discounts, as well as some free content if you have certain trophies. As far as rank goes, if your gamer rank is fairly high you get priority for open betas or cool stuff for your 3D space in home. If they did that, while keeping it all free (sans the monthly subscription), it would make online and playing games in general a heck of a lot more interesting. cheers
Couldn't agree with you more.
If you need some PSN friends...you can add me. Aiphanes I just want to get trophies and rank up and get free stuff in HOME.
More FFOD for the Sony Sausage Smugglers. At least if 360 owners get the Red Ring Of Death they can send their console back for repair. What happens when PS3 owners get the F*cked Firmware Of Death?
The only problem with your statement is that 2.4 didn't completely break people's consoles like RROD does. That was really cute, though. It must have eased the pain of having to deal with fact that your console could break at any moment for no reason.
I saw some Butterfingers this morning. When I took a sh!t. I have purchased 2 360 consoles. The first one 4 months after launch that I sold to a friend that still works to this day. The second one was when I traded in my PS3 for a 360 Pro w/HDMI. No RROD on that one either. So I have no idea what your talking about. Also please dont call me cute unless your a female. I dont like being sexually harassed by men.
Your joke about butterfingers was really clever for a boy your age! How about a joke for you (on your level)? I saw a hardcore porn the other night where one man was slapping the other man on the bum and calling him Pimpdaddy. I never said YOUR 360 had RROD not that you couldn't be lying anyway, but the problem has been well documented with the 360 and non existent with the PS3 and FW2.40. Be careful, your console could break at any minute like 16-33% of them do. :*
The reason Sony pulled Firmware 2.40 from PSN was because of the consoles bricking. Then they released some BS PR statement claiming a "few" users. Typical Sony BS. For it to be down for almost a week is inexcusable. They were smart to pull it to prevent any further damage. Now you Sony Defence Force members on N4G are stuck running damage control for them. I would have no problem saying my console did RROD if it had. I have several friends that got the RROD. Sucks to be them, but Microsoft did fix the problem. Hey if you think I'm cute thats all good I guess. But I like women. Sorry.
Dear misinformed jackass, They didn't pull it because it bricked consoles. They pulled it so that they could identify what the problem was. Then they will compensate those who had hardware problems.
Come in here calling me names. Oh I see you claim to be of the female gender. I find that hard to believe with a mouth like that. I think somebody needs to take thier meds. It's just a videogame console. Chill out. FYI. There are widespread reports of PS3 consoles bricking. Just google it. Here let me help. http://www.ps3bite.com/2008... http://consolespot.net/686-... http://consolespot.net/686-... http://gizmodo.com/5021399/... http://boardsus.playstation... Edit: Wow. I just looked at some of the comments you have posted in the past. You have serious issues. You attack 360 owners like they were an ex boyfriend who cheated on you. It's not our fault Sony released a messed up firmware update. Why dont you go attack them. Do you own stock in Sony? Are you on their payroll? Did Microsoft do something to upset you? Whatever it is it cant be that serious.
BIGGEST XBOT EVER! YOU'RE AS BAD AS NOOBSRTEHGHEY AND BLADESTAR!!! YOU SWALLOW SHANE KIM'S CUM AND LOVE IT! REALLY REALLY LOVE IT!! :D GO AND MAKE LOVE TO YOUR DEAD CONSOLE YOU NECROPHILIAC!
