Only one feature is in the new update which is: Playability status with the PS3 system has changed for some PLAYSTATION®3 format titles*. * This does not affect titles in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Oceania.
How do you delete cookies & cache on this beautiful PS3? Also, is defrag an option. Thanks. Also, I hope Sony would allow clock / timer / alarm options on the PS3 with an update. I'd like to know what time it is by maybe pressing the PS button from time to time while playing games. Must keep an eye on the clock, you know, to make sure I don't play for too long. It would be cool to be able to use the PS3 as an alarm clock too. Heck, maybe a CD or MP3 alarm clock where you wake up to your favorite music. Why not? If you have it in your bedroom. Maybe a timer feature too to notify you that your 1 hour of alloted game time is up or something, YOU KNOW? Not necessary, but would be cool to have.
After installing this update I can't get UPnP to work. It says "Not available". Anyone know whats wrong here? It worked just fine before. If I can't play Warhawk VERY soon I WILL go crazy. EDIT: Okay, it works now. That was stupid.
I was able to play WH with no problems after the new firmware.
Looks like the update means nothing to us Europeans, wonder what playability status means? is it to do with Warhawk or have they stopped the Lair remote play?
My Brother was attempting to play Hitman: Blood Money when the screen saying it's not compatible came up. The game worked before the update, so just wondering what the extent of this playability update is... I know Sony said they will slowly move away from the PS2 games on PS3 and focus on the PS3 being for PS3 games. So I was expecting it. I have a PS2 though so obviously I can still play Hitman... Just wondering if anyone else has had problems with PS2 games they used to play? Btw I live in the UK so this update did affect us Europeans
infernus, if that's true on what you are saying than that's pretty foul since this is america, i wonder if i can sue sony for the '100% BC, ALWAYS' thing they preached ;)
You can sue for anything, but I doubt that you'll be successful since Sony never guaranteed the PS3 to be 100% backward compatible.
actually reburn they did, many times before launch back before e3 2006, such statements we're retracted later though but they did promise it or atleast alluded too it with statements such as FULL backwards compatibility support.
Well, warhawk's server problems are solved for me, so I'm guessing it has to do with warhawk.
Won't let me login anymore. WTF!
erm it does what?
Now we know who the bull****ters are on N4G, as well as at the playstation.com boards. Haha..flash backgrounds, avi support, controllers auto-off after idle..ahaha..awesomeness!
The auto-off on the controllers is happening. I'm not sure when it was implemented, but I have had controllers shutting off while I was watching a movie. And yes, the battery was fully charged and in range of the BT tech.
i noticed the auto-off controls a while ago, i knew that wasn't new
Only one feature is in the new update which is: Playability status with the PS3 system has changed for some PLAYSTATION®3 format titles*. ??? So wats all this im hearing from commenters about load times and xmb loadup being faster? Jus asking, not flaming.
faulty perception due to wishful thinking most likely this was a warhawk specific patch
my SuperStar Dust HD was the same
hmmm doesn't say what specific PS3 title
thats not the only update my controllers turns off after 5 mins so lol this arcticle
i bet that, since people are reporting faster loads, they decreased the ram usage a bit. just guessing. most likely mind over matter though(wishful thinking).
Its always good to get updates, I really can't wait for 2.0 and HOME to come out. I hope in the 2.0 update there will be in game XMB.
The in-game XMB is the one thing I've heard consistantly everywhere I go atm. They're working on implementing it, with the ability to play music in games to follow soon after if enough people want that added (Unless they have that done for 2.0 already). I think Home will be the biggest thing that comes from 2.0 though, the in-game XMB is necessary imo in order to be able to switch from game to settings, to your message box, back to the game and also to Home if you want. I'm looking forward to an in-game XMB, not too worried if the in-game music isn't included but I know people want that added. The only thing on my mind when I think PS3 atm though is Heavenly Sword :D
I noticed I didn't have to plug my controller into the PS3 and press the PS button to finish the update. I could do it without the cable. That's new, isn't it?
they fixed that with the last update
I've never had to do that. Always have my controllers wireless and charge them after playing.
i was having issues with my network but their fixed due to the fact that all i had to do was delete cookies and the cache.what sites can i go to for flash backgrounds?
xmb load times and SSHD load times are improved alot. and controller turns off itself well, if this is all the update says it brought then im guessing they sneaked these things in there because its evident how fast the icons load up etc. oh well, its a win win situation nways
New for 1.92: Playability status with the PS3™ system has changed for some PlayStation®2 format titles. To check on the latest status, visit the search site for compatible titles (coming soon). Not PS3 titles and there is NO Lair control update added here is proof from: http://www.us.playstation.c...
IcemanX: That US link says version 1.90 but we are now on 1.92 Odd that. Mine is downloading as I type (44% so far) if they have solved the issues with the Warhawk servers that will be well worth it. Now lets get to 2.0 ASAP. Lets go HOME. Damn I just noticed the US has castlevania on PSN. Grrr.
Considering the coutries listed DON'T have EE chip, I wonder if that had something to do with it.... Hey you got it wrong Hella Whip it's changed PS2 titles not PS3.
Check the link I'm just quoting the official UK Playstation site.
I just got a new TV so I could get a PS3. My old TV was a 480p/1080i only. Does the PS3 now scale to whatever resolution that you set up in the options. If the game has 720p on the back of it and not 1080i will it scale to 1080i or default to 480p. I knew this was a issue back at launch but is it the same. This is for my broke a$$ friend. My TV does 480p,720,1080i, and 1080p so I'm straight. I got it for a PS3. PLEASE HELP. I plan on getting a PS3 this fall or march 08.
Doesn't affect me but it does to so many other people. No it doesn't upscale to 1080i it defaults to 480p.
one of the main things this patch does is allows full BT connectivity and dropped comm support in Motorstorm -- which iws a BIG DEAL for BT MStorm players. Any of my Motorstorm brothers on here will know what I'm talking about. I guess you have to have many games to reap the full effect of this "little" patch. I'm lucky.
Thats a ridiculous amount of games, you need a social life or a g/f.
i cant go to PsS or the internet, it just show som message, it came after the patch. i can sometimes play warhawk tho but not always. anyone know how to fix this?????
I'm getting the same. Can't access the PS Store since the update, and can't access some websites (not all) - returns a Network Error. How many others have this issue?
PS3 Firmware update "feature" confirmed?
