Firmware 2.42 optimizes Trophies to load faster

A mysterious firmware update, firmware 2.42, has just gone live.


It appears that the Trophies have been optimized and are loading much quicker now.

Update #2

Official word from Sony: "This update improves the playback quality of some PLAYSTATION 3 and PlayStation format software."

Sweet an update for the update.


It has fine tuned the in-game-xmb access as well/ all areas in general really.

Seems like a fine tuning update, Sony seems to do that quite a lot nowadays.

That it Fixed the problem in Battlefield: Bad Company. It used to restart everytime I quit out of the game during an online match but now that's gone.

ravinash3674d ago

Great that the Trophies has been improved, but can we please have more games that use them.
I feel I have to hold off playing anything otherwise I miss out on any trophies I earned.

Man this sure was needed, what with only 1 gaming supporting them and all. Thumbs up Sony!

its a start... is it not?

I mean, what a travesty that a Hardware manufacturer is actually making their hardware and OS run properly. I mean, what company wouldn't in such a position? You'd think that if they were having hardware reliability issues, they'd fix it immediately right?

The point being, as minute as this is, Sony is fixing it ASAP. GOOD FOR THEM, stop fanboying about nothing Silogon!

juuken3675d ago

Just when I thought you were getting better, you post this nonsense.
Silogon, be happy for once. This is a good update because it makes the XMB faster.

Dacapn3674d ago

It's funny. You folks act like there ISN'T one game supported right now.
