As soon as you boot up your PlayStation 3 while connected on the PlayStation Network, a new update will be pushed through your console.
PS3 It only combats piracy.
I take any free things even if I don't need it.
yea who cares if they took the other OS away they give us free minor security updates! :D
I actually used it though
Me too look forward to the next one...shows they are making sure their product works and is in line with today's threats and concerns.
lol @ the disagrees they know if i actually used it or not XD they know my favoriate color and movies too haha
Would that be Lilac and "Pretty in Pink" Dave.
@Dave Maybe they don't agree with you using it, or agree that you should be complaining that it's gone. Maybe they don't like your addition to the conversation. Why does everyone who gets disagrees assume that there's /no/ underlying message in their post. You think you're not going to get any disagrees for your latest post, you will. It's the way of the N4G. OT: I'm always up for a software update.
@Dave1351 The sony fanboys will disagree with you just because, in their eyes, you attacked sony by mentioning that they removed OtherOS - which was absolutely stupid of them to do since the xmb itself can play mkv or FLAC files, or lots of other things that Linux could do. Like seriously, people used the OtherOS feature. I didn't use it often, but it was the only way to get full quality audio out of my receiver since my computers dont have a super great sound card with HDMI Out or anything. Everyone on this site that clicked disagree on your post where all you said was that you use it, are all completely dumb ignorant fanboys. I miss my FLAC files... :( Stupid PS3 not supporting it... >.<
An who cares that XBL keeps taking away Dashboards people like. -_- If you use the OS then you can use it, just can't play PS3 games. So stop trolling.
@Neko-Mega In case you did not notice, this article is about the ps3. Whether Dave is trolling or not, you do nothing but make it worse. In addition, you can not compare the removing of a feature from a console with the change of a design in the UI of another.
FAIL!! It does remove more then what you think, you can't custom the background with your own picture anymore, in less you had a old profile that had the picture, it removes it. Theirs alot of little things it removes as well, I count that as the same as removing OS.
Aww dam it...just when I was thinking ID change feature or voice messaging I see this...They could have at least put something useful in like, IDK....rate retail game disc, or maybe 1 button notifications?......Dammit!!!
AAAAaaaaarghhhhh, 3.55 bricked my console!!!!! Only joking but I bet it's not long before someone whines that it has.
3.55 raped my console.
Yeah ANOTHER forced update. Yeah PS3!!
@paint... When I turned on my ps3 it didnt force me to update. In fact, I had to go to the system update screen and have it search. When it found it I just canceled it. Maybe sony will at some point make it mandatory but as for last night it wasnt. I'm in California and this was at close to 9pm.
or maybe press ps button to view new message, or maybe have a number next to the message icon to show how many unread messages you have? Sooo many simple little add-ons that are needed but we aren't getting ANYTHING. It is actually making me want to get a 360 because I am sick of them ignoring what people want, I mean, I have not seen 1 SINGLE PERSON ask for a video editor (that is totally useless and doesn't deserve the name btw), people want so many different things improved/added/tweaked but we get NONE of them. They have obviously dropped most of their support for the FW updates. You may pay for Xbox Live, but look at the amount of extra features you get, I was looking at all of the things you can do with Gamer Tag profiles/Parties/look at each others games etc on my m8s 360 and the PSN is not even comparable, really makes the PSN gamer tags/menus/features really antiquated and bare-bones - most of all slow. It may be free, but you get what you pay for, in everything. At least MS is still improving their OS and still adding new USEFUL GAMING FEATURES.
My PS3 became Skynet after the update! It ate my dog too!
@Turkish I used it and I'm not sitting at 3.15 :( But let's take the stupid fanboy bias out of this, all these minor updates are a little annoying. I have to sit there watch and update take 20 minutes to download just to play a round of CoD before going to work/school.
20 minutes? mine took less than 10...
Took YOU 10 minutes.
I love updates and all but this is just so tiny I want Sony to surprise me with another update that is loaded with new features. I hope we don't see these keep springing up. Stay the F away hackers, you guys should be fine with your 3.41 hmm actually with the launch of select quest, i have a feeling this update is also for that (applies to selected members) oh and give it a few hours before we see "3.55 broke my PS3" article
I think it has to do with the Reward Quests too. Would make sense.
I'm running around with the Killzone 3 "Select" PSN Avatar, I wonder what the pros look like.
Tiny huh? ask pirates how tiny exactly it is, they'll tell you it's pretty big, so stfu and move on
I have never had a ps3 brake after an update and i have 4 of them so im guessing most people do something when it's updating that your not suppose to.
I've installed every update since 1.1 none of them bricked my playstation.
update 2.40 bricked some consoles, my friend's 40gb bricked. that is why i record every time i update so i can show sony in case.
for me, I make sure I have nothing that can be accessed while I'm uploading like my controller connected to the PS3 (recharging) or any memory sticks. I know that I tend to dump my demos down to about two or three before I download sometimes and I also put everything into folders so that any animations are not running in the background while the download is occurring. I'm a little paranoid, but unlike a lot of people, I went through three or four 60Gb PS3's and I Lord willing this current one will last more than ten years. I forget, but I also may or may not log into the Playstation Network, but I can't remember if I do that or not because it's been a while since the last update.
no i'm not sure, i just bought a brand new slim and it died right after the update. Return it for a new one and it works, no problem. Don't know what happen.
Always wondered the same thing. I bought a 20Gb at launch and haven't had a single issue. Doubt there has a been a day that has went by were between me and my three girls that we haven't played a game or watched movies or just watched TV shows on it via Playon/Hulu. I know electronics fail and maybe I'm just fortunate but if people would just take the time once a month and blow out the dust and take care of it i wonder how mane people would save them some downtime and money on every platform. As for bricking during updating Im sure there are checksums in place where if you didnt get the correct download that it wouldnt install and what people might do that millions can update correctly with a few that screw it up some how. Not for sure what the real story is on that
@pixelsword, I am on my 4th PS3 (original 60gig), but don't worry about updates breaking them. I have had 1 blu-ray failure and 2 YLOD's. I'm now on my fourth and hopefully this will last a bit longer. I do take good care with them, always keep them clean and out in the open so air can circulate and keep it cool. Just had a bit of bad luck I think.
Just give up....
