A poster by the name of Justin Dailey at NeoGAF is stating a firmware update for the Playstation 3 will be available tonight (9/04/07) for the system. One of the features that well be available is "PSP-like XMB themes".
I hope this is true, but I hope it's got some major upgrades.
i dont think it will be major. v2.00 will be major.
btw: will it be UK midnight or US midnight?
Still Not 2.0 so dont get your hopes up, is going to be a few minor fixes mainly Warhawk and a few tiny errors
I was really hoping we would get 2.00.
This BETTER fix the stats system on Warhawk. NONE of my stats have been counted since Aug. 30 when they did the server restart thing, its ****ing ridiculous. I've put so much time into the game, all for nothing.
EDIT: @ Installshield:
Its still fun, but I'd have a much better time if I knew my stats were actually being recorded. My KDR is already at around 2.80-2.90, resetting it wouldn't help at all. It's extremely annoying to not get credit for anything I do. I might as well not play until it gets fixed, which is why they'll (hopefully) fix it in this update. But until that happens, I'm still gonna be pissed off at Incognito for screwing up my rank.
what do you mean "all for nothing"?...
so many people are so upset about the stats, when we haven't even been playing the game for a full week yet...and the stats do not do anything...they unlock some character customization stuff, which is cool, but doesn't make the game suck without them...
I love the stat system's rewards and badges and everything...it has specific stuff that you have to do to rank up and unlock more stuff...unlike Resistance, where you just kind of play enough and you level up every couple hours or so...but the game is still a blast with the stats pretty screwed up...(I was ranked up to a Brigadier General with no merit whatsoever...I should have still been like the 3rd rank up from Recruit...my stats keep getting recorded ok, or did...but my current rank would change with the wind)
it will get fixed...and if they have to reset the stat server completely...then your KDR will be much better after that week or two of practice...which apperantly is all anyone worries about with this game...I couldn't care less,...its the freezing that some people are experiencing that needs sorted out fast...yet I haven't had any issues with that really so far...
EDIT @ above...
fair enough...well the rumor now is that everything is still being recorded properly, its just not being displayed or downloaded to your PS3 properly...the rank has been screwed since Friday, only because it doesn't register your earned ribbons/badges/medals properly, resulting in goofy promotions for no reason, and then falling back to recruit despite that not being right either...several users have reported that they were able to get their stats to update, and that they felt they were accurate...it just hadn't updated for nearly 3 full days...so it very well could be that your stats are still being saved properly on the stat server, its just it is having a very hard time "serving" them out to requesting PS3's all the time...
I just want them to get the ranked servers back online fully, and adjust the rank limit on all of them...there are more rumors that SCEA has 1 60 ranked server bank for each time zone nearly ready for North America alone...which will nearly quadruple the available ranked servers...that combined with the server full bug being eliminated, the game will start to feel more like a complete game...i am not really blaming Incognito or SCEA, I don't really think that they realised how popular it was going to be right off the bat...I got the BD version on Wednesday morning last week, and played until friday afternoon without a single problem...no stat problems...not room full problems...no freezing problems...then noticed on forums how nearly every store was sold out, and it was taking hours upon hours to download off the psn...then friday got the first wave of rank glitches...then pretty much everything else everyone has been complaining about...I am sure it will get remedied soon though...
But, one of the problems people have had is the color schemes, the font color would disappear under certain wallpapers. Hopefully this new update fixes this problem, so I can start using some wallpapers.
that will be a big surprise.
Thats all I care about at the moment.
i think thats what its meant for 2 fix it up so people wont have any more problems with the game
I had some good stats rolling. Dam them
Well i guess its not a huge deal cuz i was only 10hours in on ranked games but still! I wanted to see if i make 200hours b4 MGS!
yea updates are good....
but i still haven't been ranked up to Airman. the game has told me i ranked up about 3 times but it still says Chief Sergent. i don't know whats up
the "chief serg." problem is pretty much the most common bug right now...tons of people will jump from Airman 1st class to chief sergeant without getting the Warhawk Recruiting ribbon...which is like "be in a Warhawk for 4 minutes, kill a dude on foot with the warhawk, and kill a dude in a ground vehicle with the warhawk...all IAR"...a somewhat tough feat for any newcomers...
its really frustrating only because it locks you out of roughly 70% of the current SCEA ranked servers...which are capped at Sergeant...anything higher than that can't get in...and its not like you earned that higher rank...it is simply the bug that promotes you without any of the requirements...it goes back and fourth too, I was demoted back down to airman for a bit...then promoted back again...both for no reasons...a good sign that the bug should be relatively simple to fix...and once it does, you will be sorted to the highest rank in which you have met the requirements...
I really hope this firmware update allows me to choose my theme color. I love the XMB background, but sometimes I really hate the colors lol.
When is HOME coming out in US? That is going to ROCK!
worldwide releases in late October. i think it'll be 23rd.
not long now!
Ign posted the US released for Oct.4th.
It's something for the system, I don't think it has anything to do with the servers for Warkhawk. If it was it would've been a in-game update not a system update, and YES am severely mad that Sony had too reboot the stats on Warhawk, theres people out there that put a lot of time into that game already playing (me for instant) ranked games and being ranked 50th in the world and then all of sudden there just gonna restart it becuase theres a over crowd of people COME ON!!!! They shouldve been ready for this since the beta was over packed. That's real grimey Sony, you didn't have to do it like that.
they have been forced to reset the stat, nothing they can do.
they were only gone for a little while on mine. they're back now. go check to see if yours is too.
o...m...g... some of you guys and your stats...it will be alright...and stats are back, just still some people have the rank problem...
It very well could be an issue with the current firmware clashing with warhawk p2p stuff...most crashes have been reported by people leaving or entering a non-ranked/non-Sony server...at least according to one of those 10 page threads on the game forum...some people have it happen frequently, some (like me) have yet to have it happen...but the report on that forum was that v1.92 would help fix issues with warhawk...
but I agree, there will most likely need to be some sort of in-game update to completely fix everything...
Lex, if your that good, you'll be in thetop 25 in no time...
I haven't noticed any...other than the hours the game has been magically and effortlessly sucking from my life, not to mention getting my ass repeatedly handed to me on a platter.
...Friggin' "Lock-on"...arrghh!! ! ;)
Great!, this should be interesting.
yea but I put hours into that game since it came out. im ranked 9 in world for kills now I gotta do that all over again. That's just not right. That's like saying you beat a single player game, how more times are you gonna play the game over if you already beat it. Your just gonna be like I already did this why I gotta do this level again or kill this much people again.
Yeah, I think they reset it because a lot of people couldn't save their stats. It sucks that you had to loose your ranking though.
Ill doit do it again just to see more blood in the battlefield again.
I personally think there should be a stat/rank reset because this is by no means a small minority, it is a huge majority that is being effected by this. My stats stopped ranking up on the 30th early in the morning and nothing has been ranked since. That and now I'm having freezing issues and of course the servers are all full.
not the 23rd
Just curious, I'm not calling you a liar, what's your source on this?
IGN reportedly has it for October 10, and I've read elsewhere Home launches October 4rth.
ign.com mentions 10th October
I thought we were gonna get a public beta before then.
Anyone have any news about an open beta date? Or has it been cancelled?
Unlike scumy MS!
Is that UK time or US. Please someone say if theyve got it,
Thats if it even exsists
it seems nothing happened here in UK. i might as well check it again tomorrow morning.
This is most likely US time, that is why I put 04 as the date.
and the java crap for the interenet browser
If its 1.92, then its a minor update that will either add a minor feature or have bug fixes. 2.00 should be coming soon though...we haven't had a major update in around a month.
Just turned on my PS3. It's 1.30am here in Ireland and no update yet.
Never mind about poxy firmware updates every month,Sony its a games machine and this is the reason i bought the piece of crap that sits there doing nothing.
Try releasing games for your console that we have paid a small fortune for if you dont mind.
Get your thumbs out your arse and employ people that understand the whole concept of what the playstation 3 needs.........
GAMES GAMES GAMES GAMES GAMES GAMES GAMES GAMES.....Now !!!!
And dont release a console untill you have something thats round comes in a plastic case,Has blu ray on it and normally has a game name...
This has to be the worst launch for a console in living memory and the worse software by a long mile.
Its a Joke and anyone that thinks any different knows nothing about gaming.
Any Mature gamer around the age of 30 plus is pleased with what the sony playstation 3 offers then i think you have been Labotomized.
Sony are laughing at us...But now its time to take the fight to Sony and the complete lack of support for us in Europe.
Does it make sense to you that although the playstation3 has no software and when the new games are getting released,Every single game is delayed on the playstation 3.
Now i am not one for waiting so i will just by it for another system regardless.
So thats another sale lost,I mean come on Ghost recon 2,Rainbow six vegas....I am a Gamer i was playing those games 8 months ago so why would i be interested in buying those games again.Idiots !!!
"i bought the piece of crap that sits there doing nothing." bullsh!t. What the fauk do you want in 9 months? Buy warhawk u stupid piece of sh!t and stop complaining.
just cause u have a ps1 and ps2
it do doesn't mean you have a ps3
no update but i did notice the american date format was used mm/dd/yy
They can add all the firmware they want, they still have a bad product.
Its funny how an xbot talks about bad products. Ever heard of 3 rings of death buddy?
The Mart's fledglings have hatched will will wreck havoc on this world...or website!!
OMG! He spawned!
Who would tap that?
But yeah...Warhawk is an amazing product and so is the PS3. Where is your basis on that?
This guy unfortunatly is brain dead...God rest his sole!!
He thinks its totally acceptable that waiting around for 9 months for a game is what its all about..
So why the hell did all of us buy the console 9 months ago,Do you go out and buy a car mate or a dvd player,Mp3 player and then wait 9 months before you can actually use it..
Mate you got School tomorrow and its way past your bedtime..Your a freakin idiot...And a MASSIVE SONY FANBOY...........
And no i aint a fanboy matey...You see i have all the consoles...So that makes me not a FANBOY.......
Its idots like you that make forums like this a interesting place..
This isnt sony's fault its the developers fault. Sony doesnt make the games they just provide the console so shut your face. While everyone is playing warhawk u can can sulk in your corner cause sony doesnt have games YOU want.
Anyways 360 and wii had the same summer drought so....
Calling people idiots when you can't even spell the word lol! (Just in case he edits his post to correct it, he spelt it "idots") You and The Mart Jr should just leave this forum, you've got nothing to offer but dim witted comments which reflect your diminished joint intelligence. Tell me, why even bother posting in the PS3 section if you think it's so crap?
In fact, since you claim you have one and you hate it, why not sell it and leave this section completely. It always make me laugh when "idiots" (that's how you spell it son) like you keep rabbiting on about there isn't enough games. How many games do you want? I've got 11 and that's more than enough at the moment as I still haven't completed them all and we both know there's a hell of a lot more games than 11. Unless of course you have no life outside gaming so you need about 100 games to keep you occupied 24/7. If that's the case I feel for you.....you should try getting out more....maybe a girl would help also, though of course she would have to appreciate your low IQ but ah well.....
A firmware update gives you new features....and you think that's a bad thing???! Funny enough I don't remember updates stopping you from playing games. I seem to manage downloading the latest update AND playing games after.....funny how you can't do the same...
Oh and insulting Demon by saying "This guy unfortunatly is brain dead...God rest his sole!!" When you can't spell unfortunately or soul??
Lol, with your brains damn, God can't even help you....
Just because u own all the consoles doesnt mean u your not a fanboy. Clearly u are or just immature.
You want Games. Heres a list of games ive'd own since i bought a ps3
MLB The Show
Tekken DR (online)*
Calling All Cars
Now the games with the * next to them are the one i suggest for u to buy. But if your a trolling fanboy then i say say dont u have to go to school tomorrow or is it Wed. like my daughter?
just let us download Home!
Ah.... What????? just shut up
I've already downloaded it, it's TRUE! V1.92.
same here Buttons840 im downoading right now
It's 9:50 here in Utah and I'm downloading it right now.
yea I have it installed but what does it do?
Done, installed, apparently faster XMB load times, flash animation backgrounds, and Audio EQ is what I have found so far.
Where did you find the audio EQ at?
I just download it and there no EQ what you going on about.
And it downloaded quick!
it would be cool if the update makes it so we can play all our ps3 games on psp
What is audio eq ? Is it any good?
I wish I was at home. I need updates people!lol What all does it do? huh, huh, huh?
Download also available for Europe,i am downloading it now. From the downloading time i suppose its around 80mb . So no way to be only for games updates, i will update this soon as i know, cheers
I'm just downloading 1.92 now in the UK its 5:29am lol.
Oh i'm to this site so wasup every body lol also i'm going to be writing sending a letter to sony about the improvement they need to do on the PlayStation store in the UK its on my web Page on Hi5 check it out and leave comments tell me what you think the website address is:
yea i believe it
So i made a few typo errors big friggin deal mate,So i suppose the likes of you never make mistakes do you.
The difference between me and you is that you clearly use spell checker when posting you IDIOT!!.
I post where i like and when i like and for saying you have around 11 games then you sir are also a brainless dimwit.
Name the great 11 games on a playstation 3 you moron.
Only 2 games on that system can lay claim to been decent in there own sort of way.
Some like Resistance fall of man which is a pile of dog pooh! And then you have Motorstorm which looks very nice and trendy but thats where it ends.
You are obviously a very bored little child who has gone out and bought every playstation 3 game regardless of how crap they all are.
What do you know about gaming if you have managed to go out and find 11 playstation 3 games that you have spent your money on and must think they are good ...Dummy!!
Forums like this are about expressing opinions negative or positive and before you rant of look at my original post and tell me if i was nasty to anybody and made comments like piece of sh!t...This is why that particular poster got a mouthfull from myself.
Oh dear i have slammed your beloved playstation 3,For every one person that is satisfied 10 people are not...So get with the program mate and dont troll forums thinking that nobody has the right to complain when they feel shafted.
You dont need me to tell you that the state of the playstation 3 release schedule and lack of games for the system stinks,There are millions of posts all over the internet.
You sulk like the spoilt brat you probebly are and basically i have lost my patience with idiots like you that jump on the bandwagon at the drop of a hat.
I dont take kindly to been called a Piece of sh!t so i suggest you take a look at my original comments and tell me why he choose to respond in that manner.
My gripes with Sony and i did not insult anyone untill the monkey posted that crap.
