TheSixthAxis investigates rumours coming in overnight suggesting the next firmware isn't too far away.
I hope for 3D update, then I can happily start hunting overpriced 3DTV with overpriced glasses.
I thought they already added 3D in the last update?
it was for 3d movies, but support for 3d games is ment to be in the next firmware if that makes any sense:)
i don't know about you guys but i need custom soundtrack badly. better browser. i can only think of those because i care a hoot about cross game voice chat.
I don't want to buy another expensive TV just for 3d. Plus the glasses are a big turnoff to me. I'm assuming this FW update will be at least semi-good considering it must be the E3 update. Sony REALLY needs to fix the broken internet browser! Since the last browser update, it freezes sooo often! It literally freezes on me at least once a day. I only use it for a total of maybe 30 minutes a day but even in that short time it finds time to freeze my PS3. I hate how it freezes my PS3 to the point where I have to go up and manually hold down the button to turn t off. So fucking annoying! It did NOT do this before the last update. My friends all complain of he exact same problem.
nah, it was for 3d games. 3d movies is coming later.
No they just prepped the console for 3D gaming.. so they can get 3D onto the ps3 quicker and easier.. They are releasing the actual 3D stuff on the same date as there 3D Bravia TV's are coming out
It was HDMI v1.4 support that is needed for 3D. The actual 3D is coming in 2 packs, 1 in the summer for games and one in fall for Bluray 3D. (since neither is out in the market for now they are waiting for the standards to be in production as well as optimising performance. Just laying the groundwork)
no. update for 3d movies will be out by the end of this year. the update for 3d gaming is going to come out sometime in the middle of this year. the last PS3 update was in preperation for 3D game. this next update could be the update to implement it.
no it was the other way around as there are already 3d movies and tv's out, no 3d games yet, i'm sre, if not my bad, i just know it was a seperate update lol:):)
no. 3d update for movies will come out by the end of the year. check it online.
pope john is right update 3.30 ''In addition, this update preps the PS3 system for some upcoming new features, including 3D stereoscopic gaming, which is coming soon to PS3, in time for the launch of Sony’s 3D BRAVIA TVs. ''
PS3 Firmware 3.40 @ E310: Full 3D, custom soundtrack, XGC, PSN Premium is Coming...
we've had custom soundtracks for years...
We've had the custom soundtracks for a while, but very few developers implement them. It is the same thing with video capture/youtube support, very few use it. All games with the available RAM should have video capture. I especially want to see it in Dead Rising 2 and Little Big Planet 2.
Pretty stupid if you ask me. After all the PS3 has 1 SPE dedicated to the OS so it wouldn't take away from performance much. And the RAM impact could be minimised. I really hope they put Custom soundtracks and Youtube capture as a proper OS feature and not a SDK feature. Couldn't care less for XGC.
"Update: we’ve been told that the update has vanished." Ah. :/ Anyone care to explain? I'm confused. :3
Cross Game Voice Chat is coming for PSN Premium.
How bout SUPPORT FOR PS2 SOFTWARE?????????????
is anyone else a little sketched out about 3d gaming? honestly imo if its anything like the real-d movies when they first came out i don't know if i'm gonna like it much
I'll expect an announcement at E3
PC world could have a spin off store, 3D world. For all your 3d needs.
They've only just fixed Dragon Age because the 3.30 firmware screwed it up. I wonder what negative effects this update will have.
fingers crossed for the background updating
Hahahah, I'm ONLY just trying to get 3.30. Wish me and poor wlan signal and my tiny little bandwidth luck.
off the website? faster on there then it is on the PS3
I'm touching myself
Too much Information... >.> Edit: Seeing as i run out of bubbles i will say this off topic thing here. I wonder what the rumour bar says once it crosses the line.
I hear 'ya my brotha' from anotha' motha'.. This news is sooo good that you can literally fap over it! :D
every now and then they say an update is coming ....yeah really?? wait and see that`s what we can do now
Didn't they say they would only release 3-4 updates per year? Lately, updates are becoming quite frequent...
They said 3-4 big content updates.
more give me more!!!!!!cain't wait.
If these rumors are true, expect to get this update during Sony's E3 Conference. Anybody remembers when the PS Movie Store was announced? (If I'm not mistakened) Personally, I would like XMB Voice Chat. Background Patch Downloads would b kewl, but honestly they don't bother me much. They usually don't take up much time anyway. Being able to voice chat with PSN Friends, (For Me), while watching a Blu Ray Movie, Surfing PS3's Web Browser..or doing whatever m doing on PS3 at the time, I find would b of more value...again (For Me), than Background D/L. An updated Browser wouldn't hurt either...but anyway, until confirmed, my 2cents r only wishes... Game on!
Hmmmm lemme guess this one gets rid of internet browser due to "security issues"
what's with all the Hostility towards Sony specifically? They give you Free Gaming online. They give you Blu Ray, (The only Console that does this) They dropped the price for you. They give you Bar-Setting Exclusives. Shove what? What's there not to like? I mean, really...what's there not to like, this is a serious question......
im on my 3rd ps3 since launce and the FW that took away other OS screwed up ps3 stability console crashed during browser etc the fix sony gave me was to back up data format and restore. All good until restore failed 4 times(3 and a half hours each) meaning i lost most of my save data(heavy rain i was on 4 th playthrough, fallout oblivion etc)i have lost my save data soooo many times and im guess im still a bit pissy about that.
unless you are one of the paltry minority who runs Linux on your PS3, what exactly is your beef with SCE? Just take a look at what they have done in the past 2 years, i honestly don't see anything that deserves that hostile attitude of yours. And are you complaining about FREE updates now? Really?
apparently we're surrounded by morons here n there that post comments with no validity. I just wish 1 day I can visit this site and have a (Gamers') conversation with another gamer, wether it's a 360 Fanboy, PS3 Fanboy or a Neutral Gamer. I actually read most comments to understand another's POV...but wow...some ppl act too elementary...o'well (sigh) Game on!
cry me a freaking river - like you ever used the 'other OS'.. bitchy xbot
Well I want it back.
$100.00 says this guy never installed linux on his PS3. Double or nothing he never has owned a Ps3.
WTF iv had a ps3 since launch and nrecently purchased a 360? id in both is outwar6010 watch in awe of my uber trophy collection(uber 360 score pending)
So thats a no to linux right?
If he had an alleged laptop, and then into this alleged laptop put in a Ubuntu 10.04 LTS DVD and selected install...while this alleged laptop was carefully balanced on a PS3... ...Now technically... This is the only way he'd ever have "installed Linux ON his PS3" Outware...if you want to be believed, you might try something believable, but THIRD PS3, FOUR failed recoveries due to OtherOS removal? I'd believe the balancing Linux act sooner than any of that.
haveing frequent updates is a good thing.
2 minor updates in nearly 6 months is not frequent.
Not liking all the frequent updates...
There's been... 2, so far, this year.
2 minor updates in nearly 6 months = frequent? Really?
these would be great IMHO: -New music visualizer -More free avatars -Possibility to read a message instantly when you get one by tapping the PS button -Possibility to leave voice messages -Increase the max number of characters in the comment -More trophies displayed on the gamer plate + link to the trophies list to see which game they come from -Enable playback of downloaded psp games on the PS3 -Enable playback of ps2 games on the PS3 (of course. Even though I'm the owner of an original 60G sku, can't help but feel a little bad for those who don't have this feature) -Make the web browser accessible in game if possible -Option to make Home the default PS3's interface (and give us free tellies & stuff in Home in this regard, to stream our media) -Display the day of the week on the xmb, not just the date of the month -Possibility to send mp3s & other types of files attached to a message (+ increase size limit again!) -More colors available in the options! (theme + gamer plate) -More smileys to use in the msgs
Great list man... Alot of little stuff on there that they should have BEEN taken cared of... Guess we just gotta wait and see... Wont hold my breath tho... I'll still love my PS3 anyway... LOL
