Here are the official details of Firmware 1.60 wich is up for download at the moment.
Haha it can play wmv's. Aww that's cute. (ps. that is actually sweet for me...i didn't think it would support them, all my music is in wmv's. i can now share a bit of David Bowie with my friends in my space in HOME :)
PS3 owners don't actually get background downloading :( We get "back gland downloading" lol
For when I get my own PS3 later, but you guys are acting like it's a godsend.
GamR, no offence but how many times have you posted a thread about this?
PS3 can play videos, and now can also download things at the background..wow.
Best console ever.
Wait...it even lets you look at photos?
No fricking way! Why are we waiting then? Where's my credit card..and when I get home, I'm gonna boast about how i can look at photos, download stuff whilst i play, and talk to friends during games - and all the 360 owners will be sick with jealousy
Firmware 1.60, BEST EVER. It's even better than the previous firmwares for the PS3..how many of them were there? It doesn't mattr..im getting a tattoo "1.60"
You sir. All he said was it was the best update since upadtes on the ps3. So what's the problem? Because it is. You can play games with BD.
This is news because this is a direct link to the ps3 website with the official details.
If this update is of no interest to you then go spend your time elsewhere.
You just want your own Tattoo.
Difference between me and you or I should say logical contributor and mindless fanboy.
You-Firmware 1.60, BEST EVER.
Me- 1.60 Best firmware so far.
Point- Fanboys say ever- Logical people say "so far"
TOO LATE: Fanboys already got my bubbles.
Whats even more amusing. You have more bubbles than I do. The Logic of this website.
Fanboys get all the bubbles.
People with a valid point and opinion get shut up.
Go Figure !!!
Man, i was exaggerating so get your head out of that ass
Wow Starfleets, GaMr states that update 1.6 is the best so far (which it is for the PS3) and you go off on him. He never said best update ever or best console ever, that's you. I see nothing wrong with the title or the article. Instead of speculation of what is going to be in the update, its the offical announcement direct from Sony which puts to rest any doubt as to what it would actually have.
The only thing I see wrong in all this is you coming in and attacking him for it. GaMr is a huge contributor to this site when it comes to news and I, and I am sure others, appreciate his efforts. If your not interested in the article perhaps others will. No where did I see in the rules that one could only post news that Starfleets finds useful and approves. If you want something like that I suggest you go start your own site and get the hell off this one.
well said... its fanboyism at its best, take a simple statement, make it into an exaggeration, let the flame war begin.. easy peasy
I was exaggerating. I'm no fanboy, but whatever is easy for you..
back up to my network. How long did the update take? I am glad both the PS3 and 360 can add updates as cool stuff becomes available. It only benefits us all.
It took all of 15 minutes.
The folding@home took longer.
I was hoping that you could set a wallpaper, but background downloading is a good enough update for me.
but i'm still upset the remote play still isn't right. i'm really looking forward to that.
the folding@home download took forever, i can't wait to get home to see the results of what it did.
wait....BluPrint...we still can't set wallpaper?
hey can someone tell me what folding@home does? thanks
the ps3 is so awesome, it folds your clothes. Its a research project in conjunction with stanford university, not really a game or anything, just something you can do while you are not playing with your machine, there are other threads about it.
Thank you sony!!. the Background downloading works great!! i only tried 3 items at a time but it felt like a record speed for 3 downloads( 17 min casino royal, lair trailer, icon demo ) ill be going out today to buy a bluetooth key board and mouse. i would like to buy a portable folding keyboard but not sure if ive found one i like. the resistance update was exciting too, added a much needed balance...plus i just bought ac4 and will be puttin in work. Were is my option to change the background?????? folding at home....maybe somday but today is not that day....
but I think the Folding@home is a really neat idea. I mean it's actually contributing towards a worthwhile cause. It's no reason to go out and buy a PS3 or anything, but I have to give Kudos to Sony and Stanford for doing something for a common good that I haven't seen done before.
what exactly they're having my PS3 calculate for them, but it works the cr@p out of the processor...I have a temp sensor next to the fan vents, and nothing has made it reach these temps before - still well within official acceptable operating limits...just found it interesting.
If you hit triangle on the logo it will tell you what it does. "Folding@home connects your PS3 to Stanford University's Folding@home distributed computing network. By connecting to this network, your PS3 supports medical reasearch designed to increase our understanding of the nature of serious diseases." Basically, your lending the computing power of your PS3 to help crunch numbers. Also, while the thing runs if you hit triangle you can check out statistics. Folding@home is being ran on computers across the globe I would think too because it shows all the different CPU's that make up for the total contribution, from pentiums to anthlons, and now the PS3's CELL. Its a little funny though because when you try to access the information sometimes it will say servicing too many connecitions, try later.
Regardless I just think its a neat idea.
