Firmware Update 1.94 is now available
Update 1.94 associated with Rachet and Clank.
After the firmware update , I had my ps2 controller hooked up and the option appear (Rumble) On/Off.
dude, where is this exactly? i just checked up here and no update
Its on the Ratchet and Clank Disk
GO BUY IT
They should really tell you the location which the update was givin. Its not showing up where I am. Canada.
they really should, i got really excited lol
was hoping to see new features or somethin
Dont see it.. just turned my PS3 on..and nothing... Im in NA so whats up? Is it JP or EU or AU or what?
Let me know...
In Mexico btw...
its probably japan. hope US gets it soon (not like it matters for me cause i can't play my ps3 until thanksgiving when i go home) then all i need to do is to buy them dualshocks...
it's up, i just DL it. this one only took a couple minutes.
edit: northwest usa
also, it appears to be b/c i popped in R&C: http://www.shacknews.com/on...
And where are you located?
no way is this out yet, man i was so excited and when i went to update just now there was no update to greet me.. :(
I'm in Toronto by the way and it's always out here the same date as the states....
I live in London, ON Canada. I don't see an update with my Canadian or Japanese account yet.
anyone know what the update will feature once we actually do get it?
what are the features in 1.94?
lol at my disagree
I downloaded it . If u want i can take a pic of my system info
Once it's been released globally I'm sure they'll let us know in the official PS3 Update thread as follows.
The first thing you'll see is the info on v1.90 but if you keep scrolling down you'll see the more recent updates.
FYI v1.94 is not on the board at this time. 10:30pm Eastern Time.
I appreciation the notion of Sony making rumble compatible with previous PS3 games but...aren't the Dual Shock 3's being delayed until next year?? (except in Japan)
If it doesnt appear on your PS3 when you turn it on then it's not for your region as yet.
The update was innitiated right before R&C. And many people are confirming the link with Rachet and clank
... from what I heard v1.94 was packaged with R&C
Check out the first paragraph here:
im in japan, not yet.
from Japan on N4G showing the Sony love!!!
That's cool. What does it do besides add rumble support?
Central US...Nothing here
yeah, just from reading the board it sounds like it has something to do with R&C
(East cost USA)
It only let me update it when i put R&C in so maybe its a combo thing?
lol..... R&C just became a dongle!
i got 1.94, but i was working and my gf called when she went to go play r&c and the update showed up she said, i told her to do it, and later when i asked if it said anything different, she said i dont kow, so sorry cant help you guys
why cant all the english speaking world be centralized!!!!! one freakin update??!!!?
I think since R&C was suppose to release Oct 30th thats when the update for everyone was suppose to come out, cause then it wouldnt make sense to only have people with the game get the update and no one else, so since they released on the 23rd which I guess it was suppose to be release from the very start, it messed up things and who knows when the rest of us will get the update.
Not in scandinavia anyway..
To get the firm update go to the official playstation web site, if your in the u.s click it and so on, also you must have a ethernet cable to hook your pc up to your ps3 and down load it that way or you a sony memory card and download it to the card then slide the card in the p3s.
I already had the update with my Ratchet and Clank disc, yesterday :).
Its not on the website yet but it come thats how you get it from the playstation website, sorry bout that
if you get update to 1.94 and plug ds2 and play r&c, is it rumble ?
It ask for the option of rumble and i said yes. but i didnt feel any rumble yet.
so we can't rumble untli Nov 11th :p
If you dont have Ratchet yet just rent the game and it will let you know as soon as you load the game that the firm ware 1.94 is availible
Man we sure are desperate lol, i'm at the edge of my seat here just waiting to pounce on the new update but i think this is only to update the Ratchet game to add the rumble feature...
Not for me....Checked and nothing...
Can you chat with friends outside of a game while still playing your game ??
Do you now have multiple chat channels I can switch between??
Can I read or hear messages sent to me without needing to exit my games ??
Can you have more than one person in a video chat session?
Is playing online free?
Can you surf the web from your console?
Can you upgrade your HDD with any standard laptop SATA drive?
What are you talking about you freak ???
** Can you have more than one person in a video chat session? **
I am not talking about VIDEO, I want to know if my bud and I can have a private channel open while playing online in different games!!
** Is playing online free? **
I know PSN is free ... where did I even ask about that ??
** Can you surf the web from your console? **
Once again, I did not ask this ... so WTF are you going on about ??
(BTW .. YES)
** Can you upgrade your HDD with any standard laptop SATA drive? **
Are we speaking the same f'kn language ????? Where did I ask about this ?? (BTW .. YES)
From your post I see you are an over reactive fanboy for Sony. You took my post as NEGATIVE, when really, I do want to know the answers to MY questions.
Feel free to read over my comments in any other area of this site, I am by no means a fanboy (as you for sure are) ... I am looking into getting a PS3 for Christmas to sit next to my 360 but I am allowed to ask questions about a system and a FW upgrade that I have been looking forward to for some time now
So IN CONCLUSION ..... RELAX ..... and most of all ..
"STOP BEING SO FVCKEN DEFENSIVE"
I can't ask questions either? Hmm. Enjoy your xmas present.
.. but you FOR SURE came across as a DEFENSIVE fanboy defending what your console "CAN DO".
I have ZERO issue with the 360 or PS3 and look forward to having both, but would like to know if this new function was added in. I really like the feature in the 360 and would LOVE to have it on the PS3 as well.
You didn't JUST ASK QUESTIONS ... come on ... admit it .... it was clear to see the directions you were going in with your comment.
Ok.Ok. I'll admit it! I just hear so much focus on what it can't do, I assumed you were following suit. I don't think we'll see any of those features until 2.0 or Home. Until then...
EDIT: The 360 vision cam will work with the PS3. I plugged mine in and it came up with ZERO problems. I personally feel 2.0 will be out in November, but who knows. Especially now that the firmwares have gone from 1.6, 1.7, etc to 1.92, 1.93, etc. At a minimum, it should be available when Home is. Then we will be living XMB in-game bliss. Sony really f*cked up by not having that by now. Just my 2 cents. While I am a PS3 fan, I'm no fanboy. Of course, my comments don't really show otherwise. After my 5th 360 died, I said enough is enough. Bitter? Absolutely.
I installed a 160GB sata in my 60GB PS3. Took all of 5 minutes. I now find myself storing my converted DVD rips (mp4) on the PS3 and streaming them to my PSP while at work (benefits of an office with a door). Remote play is pretty damned slick.
I knew that was your intention. I have been on this planet to long and have no green behind my ears. I could smell your intention a mile away.
BTW, can I use any Webcam with the PS3 for video chat (not into video chat but thought I would ask) ... wonder if my 360 cam will work with it.
And when is 2.0 expected out?? I thought it was THIS month ??
I also understand where some of the DEFENSIVE comments come from. This place is littered with one sided fanboys. I must admit, at times reading about the 360 on N4G and some of the out and out Bullsh!t I read gets me ripped and I would love to come back and defend, but then I would be labelled a Fanboy, when in reality I am not. I am a gamer. But it still pisses me off to hear folks with ZERO CLUE talk sh!t just because it is not SONY ( or MicroSoft) ... the retards live on BOTH sides of the fence.
Have my nice little 160GB 5400rpm SATA sitting ... waiting.
And my PSP needs his big brother to play with as well.
I also see you are from North America. I am on my 2nd 360, but my first was a launch day console. May actually sell the one I have now to get the new ones that are out with the BenQ DVD Drive, NO MORE X-CLAMPS (use the 4 mount method .. much better), 2 heat syncs (rather than one) and 65nm chip (rather than 90nm). I have the 20GB drive and the 120GB drive (Walmart messed up and I got it for $100) so I might grab the new ARCADE 360 (which has all the NEW internals) and just put my 120 on it. Then again, just buy the ARCADE model ($280) and then have two. One in living room on 61" 1080p set and other in PC room on 22" monitor (for when my kids NEED to watch Teletoon on the BIG tv .. LOL )
I don't ever see me not having a 360. I have to many games for it and really love some of the exclusives. Plus I would say 99% of my buds have them and we play on XBL every night (once wife and kids are in bed that is) .. but, that is why I also want the PS3 .. KZ2 for me is a must and I think RC will also be added. Plus, still want to give RFOM a run. I figure at Christmas (or a little after) I will get some nice bundles that my local shops will offer. Will go for the 40GB since I don't need 4 USB or the card readers. BC is not an issue since my PS2 is still in my wall unit. "BUT" the chat and message function I get with XBL "IS" important to me as a feature I use ALL THE TIME and really look forward to PS3 adding it ... the sooner the better IMHO !!
As for BR or HD-DVD ... I really wish the INDUSTRY would pick a winner. They are waiting for WE the consumers to choose, when most of us are not willing to comit to an unknown. I have a BETA MAX player in my basment and don't want another be it BR or HD-DVD.
I am not even sure what I will use the 160GB drive for since my 360 does my media streaming, but who cares .. BIGGER is BETTER when it comes to HD space. And the price is getting lower and lower on these Sata drives.
BTW .. is it true you do not have a GLOBAL friends list ?? Meaning you will have a main list, but then a list for each game ??? I hope that is NOT the case or at least that it will be addressed.
You do have a global friends list, however, games have their own friends lists as well. Some titles, MotorStorm for example, integrate with the XMB friends list. Leaving the options open is good for devs, but putting the same type of minimum requirements MS has with XBL, it damn near a necessity at this point. Home should "fix" it all. It's the waiting that sucks. Shoot me an add when you get the PS3. PSN : Action Bastrd
I am shooting for the Christmas time, but to be honest ... "I WILL" wait to make sure FW 2.0 addresses my concerns. For me .. ONLINE IS HUGE. That is a good 90% of my gaming. And I really have gotten far to use to the features I really hope 2.0 will give that functionallity in regards to chats, messages (I also use the MSN feature a good deal as well. With the chat pad it is very slick)and ONE global friends list that can be accessed for invites across the board. I also want to be sure the games I want (KZ2 in particular) are indeed on track and not pushed off for whatever reason (it seems to happen a good bit with the PS3). So the day will come ... NO DOUBT ... but if I have to "WAIT" a bit longer than I would like ... so be it !!
I'd shoot you my XBL tag, but as you said, you don't have a 360 anymore.
I am on a course this week rather than on my own PC at the office and the machines here are JUNK and SLOW. You never know if your post was submitted till you see two of them.
I really wish we could DELETE posts.
... I just thought about it, it would make a lot of sense if update 2.0 were to come out on ps3's first anniversary.
false alarm. i guess beast was gone for a few weeks and didn't know ratchet and clank came with 1.94.
I live in Texas and I'm getting nothing.
still nothing,(western canada) where do you need to be to get the update?
You get The update Via by Rachet and Clank!
So if you dont have the game you get no update tell the actual update what will come out via over your PS3 update!
Your Welcome Wveryone..
We knew about this for a week now. why are you people going crazy?
I just purchased ratchet this mourning and when i was popped it in to my ps3 it asked me to update, the 1.94 is just for the rumble feature. i think when uncharted comes it'll prompt you to do the same thing because it will also have a firmware on the disc to give access to rumble. ^^
R&C is also affected by little installation bug (you need to remove or add some mb from hd before install) and the disc come with 1.94 installer INSIDE. Maybe this one is just a fix...
Not sure if it made a difference or not though as I had 20GB's free space.
Aint seen squat!.........
Is the Update on the R&C disk itself (which is only available at the moment in the US, so the UK won't see this until November @43) or does it downlaod from the PSN *because* you put the R&C disk in??
My PS3 auto signs in at startup and it gave no error messages.
