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.... peace
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
