Sony released a new (reloaded) version of the PS3 firmware 3.56. Rumor is that the problem with respect to the hard disk replacement will be remedied.
Now with new and improved hacker douchebag detector.
This is the reason i dont game on console too much control from the maker. They wont win the war anyways, it will be another PSP, hackers will always find a way to crack it.
Its like when devs put DRM on a game, Genuine buyers suffer while pirates enjoy the game. Genuine buyers have to suffer with update after update, some of these updates even mess up certain systems until a fix is released. @below Windows updates are not annoying by anymeans, People can update whenever they choose too, its not like you cant play online if you dont update. Lol you can even leave an update to download while you are playing a game or surfing the web, once its done the updates will install when you are shutting the system down.
hackers never did hack the ps3 if they didn't have dev kits/keys they would still be trying to figure out the ps3. at Ranshak you should not use a windows os if you dislike updates just use 360 1 update a year hackers sense 2007.
to blow the hackers away lol. yeah, that was lame.
But surely its a good thing that Sony are trying to stop the hackers!! I mean my friend was playing on MW2 the other day and said there was lasers coming down from the sky, people running through walls, all sorts of weird shit happening!! Whats the point in playing a game that isnt the same as when it was released!!? These games are ruined now, I think its great that Sony are trying to stop these idiots!!
MW2 is mostly mod save files, Boarderlands you can mod your file and pretty much make you character god. I mod my Boarderland charater to hold 2,000 items in her backpack, I only did that for Boarderlands because it doesn't effect others online like MW2.
"This is the reason i dont game on console too much control from the maker" ahem, I assume that means you game on PC, where hacking never happens and users have no control? Stealth bot detected.
@Mr Tretton No, you fail at comprehension. He games on PC where you can ban anyone from your server who is seen cheating, instantly, whenever you want without waiting for the grand overseer to do it for you. Oh and nobody can invalidate your hard drive.
so uh i guess you hate computers to much control from to many companys feeding you securtiy updates and stuff
You don't know what 'control' means do you? Be honest.
"Mandatory" updates LOL. More and more and more and more.
Frankly, this is getting annoying now!
This is the reason I game on console, the control is in the developers/publisher. They always win the war anyways, it won't be another PSP, hackers will always find a way to crack it, and Sony will always find a way to block it.
wait another 3.56 firmware? I have to download & install once again? I don't even know what this is.... Xbox 360 Updates are fast and simple. PS3 updates are pain in the ass..along with game updates.
"Xbox 360 Updates are fast and simple. PS3 updates are pain in the ass..." Well, then I guess you must really be butt-hurt then.
upgrade your internet connection? The update took me literally 2 minutes to download and a minute to install.
nonsense... both are the same. I dont see any differences on game/firmware updates for both my ps3 and 360. if its mean to be big they will be slower, if small they will be faster. both console works the same way. unless your 360 is "special". if not you are just another xbot trying to pretend a ps3 owner and troll the thread.
Sony caps the bandwidth for system and game updates. One of the benefits of signing up for PS plus is you get uncapped updates This is why the updates on the PS3 are slower.
"translate.google.de" ; Nope.
When will this end?
never its gonna be just like the psp you will get used to it
the race only just started ... yep i know .. that's sad ...
Really? First Sony goes after Hotz and crew and the judge rules in Sony's favor. Then Hotz and crew have to turn over their hacking gear and stop distribution of the root keys. Next Sony sends cease notices to other mirror sites that were distributing the code and the sites comply. Finally Sony releases new version of FW 3.56 to bar hackers. So I'm not so convinced that it'll never end. Otherwise some of these things wouldn't have happened.
Seriously... I don't want this to return to PSP levels as it seems like suddenly no work is being put into new features for the people that abide by the rules.
i think with all the PS3 and PC players of COD that want to sue for an "unfinished product", claiming the game was not complete, and all they do is patch it.... i think we need that group to do this for the PSN also. i mean update after update after update...... it's seems like an "unfinished product" achira... none of them are "required" to play games. it's not mandatory to be online to play a ps3.
you should read the text bevore you comment. its not required to update.
Its not mandatory to play online. This one.
It's generally encouraged that you first read an article, before you comment on it. Commenting on a subject, in which you're ignorant of its content generally leads to embarrassing and awkward moments.
I don't mind the updates. If you want to go back to the old systems that when you buy it the system never changed and it was what it was. Now well you can look forward to new improvements.
Difference is, the ps3 works just at what its supposed to do. Sony is not patching the PS3 in order to make sure it still can play a movie or play a game every other month. It is patching the PS3 because of the acts of hackers, aka trying to protect their true customers.
It works, except the browser that shit needs a total makeover or better, the ps3 could have Opera or Chrome. And Trophy sync should be faster or automatic in the background. Comparing them is slow too. And a simplified faster ingame menu would be great. And Skype... Ingame. Proper GIF image support and MKV support. that would be one heck of an update... Go Sony, teabag them cheaters and pirates, but dont forget about good useful updates and features.
Maybe if these hackers weren't wasting their time, Sony could get around to that stuff. These guys think they are doing everyone a favor, but outside of a small percentage of gamers, no one has any interest in this stuff. We're much more interested in the stuff you mentioned.
OMG rev an update like that would make me jizz in my pants. One can always dream.....
Don't confuse "unfinished" with "evolving"... unless you're a PS3 downer of course (perish the thought)
Games like Gears on the 360 are incomplete. So they must be constantly patched to complete it. The PS3, on the other hand, is already completed. Firmware updates are only for adding totally new features to the PS3. (Yes, blocking hackers IS a feature.)
Don't mess with Sony MFs. :)
So is it 3.56 or like 3.57 or sometning?
it is another 3.56 for people that had issues with hdd like me.
PS+ members will get this automatically downloaded if your auto download function is turned on even if you already have 3.56. It happened to me this morning.
Oooh I forgot about that! I just joined the Plus so I'll be happy to have that feature auto-install itself.
i can confirm this does not fix the issues.
bah tired of boring updates give us something we have been waiting for!
another person i just dont get it hello there trying to protect your online experience and security. i wonder people like you do you run a win os with auto update off and no virus protection?. you must because you would go nuts with all the updates
yo don't try to down talk me with all that security blah blah stuff as i know all about it already and trust me i know more about it a lot more than you do. And yes I do turn off updates on my computer why? because once again I know more about security and viruses more than your thinking right now.. lol I been on psn since day one..i can't wait for something better than some security update. I understand protecting my security but your making it seem like someone is going to come in and destroy my ps3 from psn get real lol COD hackers are gone all that matters.
just wow you actually admit you like unprotected os's fn idiot.
Don't worry, firmware 3.60 will be released in a week or two, cloud storage and such.
yeah that seems pretty cool :P
Well at least it's fixed now where I can still upgrade my PS3 HDD that's always a good thing. :D Still those hackers are a pain in the ass. -___-
Is this a mandatory update, like the original 3.56? Think this we discussed already but I'm not clear what the answer was :S Thanks
Nope, I was browsing the store and talking to some PSN friends before I even noticed this article.
Here we go again with the second attack
Is sony doomed yet ? even if I have to update every month I wont mind :)
Surely SONY should make this, 3.57?
It's technically not a new firmware since it doesn't bring any new features. Just a critical bugfix for 3.56.
sony uses a hundreths system technically this could be 3.561 but since there not using thousandths its still 3.56
fear the banhammer!!! Because its in full swing you hackers :P
I cannot for the life of me make any sense of this article. This might be the worst translation job in history. Or rather..... "this job be may world history continues to be awful."
Hackers already cracked it wow....
noone cracked it ;D They found the key yes, but you can't run your deviated and gay homebrews on 3.56.
edit: disregard this post
Just start throwing all hackers in jail.... end of story.
Has Sony forget what version number means in software subversion control rules? So far, Sony has tried to hide twice on not incrementing the firmware subversion number after they made a bug fix. It doesn't give Sony the excuse in trying to protect their image by releasing buggy firmwares and then covering up the fix by releasing the same version number. They also didn't update the feature/bug change in the firmware history so that most consumers wouldn't remember about their mistakes. Let's see if Sony is going to reintroduce the hard drive upgrade bug again after being fixed twice and twice they didn't change the firmware version number when someone in the development and testing forgets about the hard drive upgrade bug in the future firmware updates.
Let's split hairs, it's probably something like 3.56.2.
downloading now. My ps3 was on the fritz for the last few days....I wonder if this solves it... Then again...I've just ordered a new freakin system :-/. Might have to return it :-/
Downloading as I read. but this won't stop hackers.
