Firmware 3.01 live. Fixes previous 3.0 problems.
lol Edit: these updates are really fast now I'm at 40% already and I just turned on my PS3 Edit: again it's done
Seriously, very unexpected. I'm playing Fat Princess right now so I can't confirm this is live, otherwise I'd approve.
must download i just started and i'm at 17%
I'll update in the morning, I hope it fixws the font issue.
OMG i hope uncharted works now, it worked for awhile but started freezing again so i hope this helps!
Nothing's changed. Fonts are still big. Gray Boxes are still there. Ticker is still running. I'm pretty sure this is more for the software issues like for Uncharted.
It's just an optional update for the Uncharted freezing issue but they should have made it mandatory since most of the new PS3 owners aren't aware of how PS3's FW updates work. I doubt any of the new owners scroll of to the settings tab and check for an update daily and most of them don't check N4G daily either. A lot of them aren't going to be able to play Uncharted without that FW so Sony should have made it mandatory to benefit them. Also, the hideous grey boxes haven't left. Still there, still ugly.
does anyone know if this is only a fix for uncharted? i was having problems with my ps3 freezing about every 30 min. while playing MAG also. might as well dl and try...that is if the servers ever go back up for MAG!!
Guess, they're gonna do something else with those boxes. They know we b!tched about them after all.
I heard Uncharted had problems with 3.0 but since that particular update I've played it through on hard and on crushing (I got my platinum finally) and i haven't noticed any problems whatsoever. Lucky me?
I haven't had any problems with FW3.00 I found it speed up games. So the problems could be in people's mind or very minor. Alas though new firmware updates come on game disks and thus PS3's will get updated anyway when people play the latest games on their PS3.
because you did NOT experience it does NOT mean it did not exist. That is why it is a bug, because it is not always caught during testing. It happens to every company including MS, Sony and Nintendo although Nintendo rarely adds anything to their console.
I'm so bookmarking this article. An update to fix an update. MEGAFAIL!
"An update to fix an update." Better an update to fix an update rather than no update to fix the update.
does it also fix the controller problems i hope it does
Nothing to see here. Glad they got on the fix ASAP though. It shows that though it is a free service, Sony is still dedicated to keeping the consumers happy. Kudos for the quick response Sony!
You must not use a PC running Windows to write stupid things like that, otherwise, you would run out of bookmarks for those updates fixing updates!! DirectX: Tons of updates between the all the major updates Windows Explorer: ooops Windows Office: ouch Windows Media Player: Don't even talk about it Windows Genuine Advantage: Heck, they even managed to screw that up too And the list goes on. They literally invented the Service Packs to save us time. Things happen, get over it and save your bookmarks for something more interesting like games : )
The last update for MAG caused the freezing (zipper knows about it and working on a fix). MAG beta servers has been down and will be backup on Thursday 09/17/2009, along with all the Qore beta players. I'll see you in the battlefield.
You should print out a copy of this article and hang it next to your Bill Gates poster.
Since updating to v3.0 one of my official dualshocks has decided that it wont respond to button presses.(Very rarely used, and was working fine before the update) - Second one still going strong. Does anyone know if this update will sort this out?
@ slayorofgods you mean steve balmer?
I download it, but I do not know what it do :(
It probly just fixed the issues that Uncharted caused.
dammit i just want the grey boxes gone
what was wrong with Uncharted?
Uncharted was freezing a lot since the 3.0 update. This new update will probably fix those freezing problems.
hopefully it gets rig if thoes stupid sparkels and fixes the friends list...
you can set it to the original XMB without the sparkles....
really? how do you do this? THANK YOU LOL
choose Classic in the Themes background
You could disable it in 3.0. I hope they have an option to disable the ticker now.
k thanks guys, this is good to know.
You can get rid of the ticker by changing the date 1 year ahead. That way no news is posted because the PS3 can't read the future. :P
