The PlayStation 3 update v3.50 – which today was available to download – was meant to bring 3D Blu-ray support to the console. However, after trying to play a 3D blu-ray on my PS3, there seems to be some problems with the update.
The problem they're having has actually been recognized by Sony, from PS Blog : "Depending on the content, some elements may be displayed differently in 3D on the PS3 system than on other playback devices."
Just watched Monsters vs Aliens in 3D on my TV and PS3 with no problems... hope the problems will go away for others!
Since the update, I cant even sign into the PSN. It keeps telling me wrong username or password. When I try to retrieve my password, it gives me an error. Anyone else having this problem?
@DMason Sony are doing maintenance, just like they had announced 2 days ago that they were.
what was said in your quote has nothing to do with this article.... The author is likely having a problem because 3D tvs just got standardized... and tech behind 3D tvs were used to be different. some first gen TVs used to have polarization images for 3D. And then it moved on to shutter tech 3D(same tech that Sony uses) now most TV has shutter tech and things have standardized, but some earlier models werent. The author is likely having issues because 3D tv he bought is earlier model or one that hasnt been standardized. and thats what the quote meant. IMO, from the article, i think the author is writing this to get hits. he has to know what he is saying isnt true.
I couldn't sign in to psn about the time you wrote your comment dmason but now I tried it again when I woke up this morning and it's ok. I got a little worried at first since it told me my id or password was incorrect. I was like wtf? Then I remembered reading something about a maintenance so I thought it would be ok in the morning and here we are :D
I don't know what I did wrong I updated and it's not playing my copy of Monsters vs Aliens and it's not working. How did you get it to work? P.S. My ps3 isn't even recognizing the disk?!?!!
they are updating the store and doing some other stuff and you won't be able to login until later. just check the ps3 website.
I dont have a 3DTV.
You, sir, are hereby demoted and may no longer call yourself "Lord"!
No problems for me.
We get a firmware update problems article every time a new firmware is out. Can you please actually try find REAL faults with the PS3 instead of this?? Seems those PS3 haters can't that's why every PS3 firmware has probs. The thing is if it wasn't for MS and that firmware that bricked over 1 million consoles these articles probably wouldn't have ever existed.
But when it makes the film impossible to watch, then there definately a problem. I'm sure it won't take them long to sort it out. Sony are normally quite quick with those sorts of things!
well there isent a problem with alien vs monsters... the only 3dmove i have at the momment
i'm sure sony is on top of it already, good old sony lol
Another update another rash of webpages claiming there are issues with it... there will be no end to it.
yep, tryied Monsters vs Aliens 3D today with the update and i changed every 3D setting on my TV it still was kinda bad to watch, i couldn't focus my eyes on the image and have spotted some bad shadow artifacts around the objects... i was afraid i had an eye problem or the TV sux, but it's good to know it's just the firmware :) btw. i already played the 3D games on the PS3 and there weren't such problems like with the movie.
This always happens. 99% of the time its just fanboys trying to sabotage firmware updates. Its really sad.
This always happens. 99% of the time its just fanboys who are unable to criticize Sony. Its really sad.
Whatever makes you sleep better at night.
... u just proved his point /facepalm.
99% of statistics on the internet are made up on the spot. P.S thumbs up for anybody who can understand the irony of this comment.
In fact, its 83%.
What a wild SDF conspiracy theory. It's the fanboys and not the hardware not designed for 3D? I get it, ignore the patched in 3D on hardware not designed for 3D using HDMI v.1.3 and blame the botz.
so...anybody have any ideas on how we can start getting trolls like niceguywii60 banned?
Everyone on this iste is a troll. God forbid someone should have a small criticism about the PS3. They jump on this like wildfire and start calling everyone trolls. I hate this site.
And heaven forbid the 360 is criticized or Kinect. The 360 fanboys go on a rampage. There's nothing wrong with criticizing Sony or the PS3, only if it WARRANTS a criticism.
You're right that not everyone on this site is a troll, but you must not have been here very long if you don't know that niceguywii60 is one of the worst.
Nope. 100% working for me.. No problems whatsoever. Strangely enough, The XMB feels alot more faster/quicker which is nice. :)
Yeah, the XMB is more faster.
more faster? or much faster?
more better? Sorry, I had to...
I have a PS3, and a 3D TV. I also have a stand aloine 3D Bluray player. After putting in Monster Vs Aliens on both machines, the PS3 def has an issue with it. Gave me a headache in about 1 minute. Whereas I was alble to watch the whole film in the stand alone player with no issues. so I am not just being a 'Fanboy'
thx for the info, exactly what i needed to know :) helpful bubble+
Its probably the 1st time. Im just saying whenever there is a new PS3 firmware update theres always people who say it either bricked there system or something along those lines. Then me and my other friends never experience any problems. Then it turns out to be just some more fanboy lies. It probably is a legitimate problem. Edit: To the people who cant sign into PSN. This may be the problem http://www.gamespot.com/new... they are having maintenance today.
i thought i got hacked or somethin. phew
for some reason, update problem just happen to certain consoles. When i first bought the slim and did the update, it totally killed the console (no image, nothing, nada). I had to return it and got a new one the next day and it works fine.
Well of course you are. You just criticised the godly PS3. ^ sarcasm
i cant sign in to any of the accounts that are on my ps3 ?? @@ its really freaking me out !! at first it wouldn't give me access to the playstation store , then i shut the ps3 off thinking it was a glitch or something , but when i turned it on it wouldn't even sign me in !! so yeah sorta worried . I'm not saying nor do i know if this has anything to do with the update
The same thing happened to me! :S It wont let any of the accounts on my ps3 sign in, saying 'the email or password is incorrect' (or something similar) After seeing someone else with the problem i reckon it may have been the update.
and when i click on forgot password it says an error has occured...
I'm having the same problem. Can't sign in at all on neither of my accounts. It keeps saying that my password is incorrect. I thought it was just me at first so it is definitely a problem that occured with the update.
Sony already posted before the update went live that there would be scheduled maintenance for a good portion of the day today, meaning you have limited to no access to your account and whatnot. Then again, they also said that the store would update yesterday BECAUSE of the maintenance today, but I updated my system at 12:00am EST, and the store had still not updated yet... Not sure if it was the time difference or if they were holding it back.
Ok cheers for the heads up, i must've missed that. I'll leave it for a bit then.
Ow thank you i was worried
Alright, yall can read by my previous comments that Im a die hard Sony fan, so I am not making this up. It wont let me in my psn accounts. at first it freaked me out cause I thought maybe someone had gotten into my account (not sure how they would though...lol panicked)Im glad to see others having the same issue cause it lets me know Sony will fix it. but I hope they hurry. I was about to buy Planet Minigolf for my kids, my wife and I to play with using the move. guess we will stick with sports champions disc golf till they fix it.
Sony will figure it out, just give them time. As long as it is not wrecking your console, you'll be fine ;)
me neither but i can easily believe it . What's funny though is problems happens with every hardware that get firmware update ... yet only the ps3 get articles about it , not even 24h after release .. each firmware
yeah i cant sign in either and i was thinking i could be hacked. you havn't been in any mw2 Challenge Lobbies recently cus mabey we have been banned???
I own a Samsung 3D Blu ray player and I have a PS3 which I downloaded the update from and I cannot see any problems whatsoever. I have 2 3D blu ray movies and they work fine. Why is it that every time Sony releases a firmware update people post articles on websites saying that the firmware is causing problems?
Well the firmware sure did f*ck up PS3 Media server.
Seriously guys, just want to know exactly how you update your firmwares. Because no matter what the device, you must always shut down after the updates, hek even if you flash a dvd on your pc with a newer firmware. I've got the 80gb fatty and have never had a problem with updates.
think something wrong with the update, can't sign into any of my accounts and can't use the forgot password option
Guys who can't log in. PSN is down for maintenance today probably cuase they are updating the PSN. It was announced yesterday.
I don't have any 3D Blu-ray movies to try (or a 3D telly for that matter), but I don't have any problem signing into any of my accounts after updating my 60 Gig SKU PS3 with the new firmware, so I don't know how some of you guys can have problems. That said, I didn't find anything new that wasn't there before. Neither that user report functionality or new facebook features...
I can no longer sighn in after update just wont accept my details wont let me reset password any ideas would help
How many times does it have to be repeated to some of you? You probably cannot sign in due to the MAINTENANCE today.
Ok first i herd get off youre high horse sheesh i didnt know i do now thankyou i dont play it much sorry for being unaware.
I didn't mean to come off as harsh, but it has been said multiple times. Hopefully I will bring some clarification with my magic CAPS.
most people are unaware because no news were broadcast on N4G so you should get off your high horse. Most people do not even know about this right now because everyone is telling them about this maintenance only in this article.
actually it was mentioned here earlier , among many other places
I was wondering when a fanboy would claim that this is bogus. Btw, the reason you see articles appearing more often about Sony FW problems is because Sony releases them more often! There's always articles about problems with MS FW updates, but MS only releases updates like once or twice a year.
Killman : How many times does it have to be repeated to some of you? You probably cannot sign in due to the MAINTENANCE today He is totally correct on this point. If you cannot sign in, that is the problem. Nothing to worry about.
Everytime there is an update everyone jumps to claim that it has a problem. But when I ask anyone if they have any problems with it they say no.I wish people would be able to tell the difference between actual problems and game media trouble making. Just like when the Ps3 when through a slight hiccup with the whole leap year thing and everyone jumped on it like a savage animal speculating and spreading rumors and Sony fixed it in a heart beat. Just more evidence of Sony hate.
Yeah I am having problems with the 3d playback also AvM is un wachable right now. Works great on the blue ray player.samsung I have the pn50c7000 3d HDTV. I was stressing but I'm sure they will iron it out( crosses fingers)
Well I'm having a problem signing in, my password won't be accepted and I know for sure that it is correct. When I go to the 'forgot your password' page I am told an error has a occurred and am booted back to the XMB. Yay.
How many people just post without reading anything anyone wrote? As I said in an earlier post, Sony already said the PSN was down for maintenance today. Chill out and just wait a few hours.
Not worried about the whole 3D issue yet, won't probably afford one until next Christmas.
Another problem, i can sign in but i cant enter the psn Store. Has anyone had this problem.?
Dude, its MAINTENANCE! Are you all 'special'?
i know it was maintenance ! i was told right up there but i couldn't sign in before now i can, but no store so thats why i had the question ! anyway everything is all good now :)
