Does this fix the cloud save Bug?

zeeshan2439d ago

I pretty much HATE these useless and frequent updates! This is getting rediculous! I hope they fix the mic volume and virtual 7.1 surround sound for the newly released wireless headsets.

egidem2439d ago


Agreed. I've been having mic volume problems as well. I hope this update fixes it. I'll update tomorrow and see what happens.

SuperStrokey11232439d ago

I agree, i dont see the point in many small updates. Wish they did just 2 updates a year or something. Not something super small.

However, I suspect this update has something to do with the upcoming PSV launch.

WhittO2439d ago (Edited 2439d ago )

^^ prob nothing to do with PSV.

It's really annoying because there is SO much they could do with PS3 to make the experience for it's users even better, but they just don't seem to be putting in the resources at all.

I understand the focus is PSV, but would it really kill their profits THAT much to have a team dedicated to enhancing PS3 XMB/PSN??!! And not the 1-2 people they seem to have running everything now...

Honestly, I think I get so P/O with the FW updates these past 2 years because I bought an expensive system (at the time) because I believed it would be supported for years to come and had so much potential, but it feels like they have just dropped most of their support in terms of OS/PSN upgrades.
Especially when you see MS bringing huge enhancements to their even older system (compared to what Sony has been spitting out anyway).

I won't be buying the next console with what it "Might" have next time, with all the promises and BS Hype ...cross game VIDEO CHAT haha what a joke.

Took them like over a year and a half to bring in-game XMB, which barely worked at the time and which has not has a SINGLE update/upgrade...AT ALL, meaning, it still barely works now.

BrianG2439d ago (Edited 2439d ago )

To those who don't want these "useless and frequent" updates.

How else are they going to fix small issues like the cloud game save bug (which you can fix yourself by updating your time via internet in the settings) or the volume bug with they new 7.1 headset?

Would you like them to fix it now, or in 4 to 6 months with the next big update?

Drake_Seraphim2439d ago

I'm glad they have frequent updates! That lets me know that they are actively seeking fixes to any problems, no matter how "small" they may seem. I'm sure this update matters to someone, and on their behalf I say "thank you Sony"

I'm pretty sure that was already fixed in the background, because mine has been saving fine since a week or so ago.

SilentNegotiator2439d ago (Edited 2439d ago )

Lets wait for the "Hidden features of 3.72" articles to show up :)

ScubaSteve12440d ago

or version 3.72 killed my ps3

miDnIghtEr2440d ago

Version 3.72 just bricked my PS3rd!!!

Biggest2439d ago

My car broke down! Thanks a ton, PS3 update. YOU SUCK!

just_looken2440d ago

for all those that never had a ps3 in 2006 ill tell you what these patch's are for they are making the ps3 ready for all the vita connectivity and ps3 only features. So when you get your vita you can do what you do with your psp like remote play/file transfer video stream etc and do the extra of what vita can do. None of what you see on the xmb relating to the psp was there when the ps3 first came out it was patched in. Just like the psp the vita needs patching in but there being sneaky about it.

Oh here is a tip head to xmb chat invite a friend don't let him join and watch his avatar they now glow kind of and move all over the place added via patch before this.

limewax2439d ago

Sorry but no, The Vita compatibility will be in firmware 3.80, This is just how Sony updates work, you get minor fixes in units and major patches in tens.

Why on earth would they want to sneak it in? the Vita is coming and PS3 needs patching, Sony aren't going to care for going stealth, they want people to know about the Vita and you can bet when you get FW 3.80 it will bring a fairly in your face Vita advert in one of the XMB tabs.

This patch it likely related to other recently released PS3 compatible products

spektical2440d ago

hidden features going to show up soon...

god i wish sony would just say whats in the box...

FrightfulActions2439d ago

Agreed. I know not everyone cares that much about all the specifics, sometimes its just minor tweaks, but Sony should still release a option on their site or something that lists all the changes a certain firmware does, rather than just key points. I shouldn't have to rely on some fansite posting of the "hidden features" of firmware - they should just tell us. Would a simple little .txt file for "See all new features/changes" be that hard?

thespaz2440d ago

You know... my PS3 doesn't seem any different. Oh well.

Is this the update that provides the new T&Cs that get you to waive your right to taking out class-action suits against Sony for security breaches?

oohWii2440d ago

Have haven't anyone answered this question. I am curious also if this update forces you to waive your right to file a lawsuit against Sony if the decide to screw you over.

All of the know-it-alls on this site and this question still unanswered.

Ren_2440d ago (Edited 2440d ago )

It makes you agree to only sue as an individual and not as part of a group if you are going to sue for whatever reason:

“Any Dispute Resolution Proceedings, whether in arbitration or court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class or representative action or as a named or unnamed member in a class, consolidated, representative or private attorney general action”

You can write Sony to opt-out of this agreement after agreeing to it on PSN however. Not sure on how many days you have to do this though.

Haven't done the update yet myself so still do not know if the new terms and conditions are included.

***EDIT: A friend just updated (EU account) and only the normal update agreement appeared. No new T&Cs.

Leviathan2439d ago

The new t&c was released recently..right before the update.

Ren_2439d ago

@oohWii - no worries mate

@Leviathan - I didn't have to agree to the newest T&Cs yet :S

SilentNegotiator2439d ago (Edited 2439d ago )

"All of the know-it-alls on this site and this question still unanswered"
It absolutely has. That came out a LONG while ago with the need to agree with the new TOS to sign in. But since you don't have a ps3, you wouldn't know.

"I am curious also if this update forces you to waive your right to file a lawsuit against Sony if the decide to screw you over"
No one has to service you, especially if you're suing them. Why you'd continue to use a service that's SO HORRIBLE that you're suing the company over it, anyway? Either sue them and don't use it, or use it and don't sue. TA-DA!

oohWii2439d ago (Edited 2439d ago )

Yo rump roast, I actually do have a PS3. Haven't used it in a while. (haven't used my 360 that much in a while either for that matter.) However, It's not a question of using a system or suing the company. It's the principle behind, hiding behind a service agreement while blocking people of using PSN.

It's like me telling you, AFTER you buy a car that if the don't come to the dealership and sign and no suit agreement your warranty will be voided.

Or buying and game online and telling me AFTER the transaction is completed that you will not send me the activation code until after I sign and anti-lawsuit agreement.

If I had to sign this type of agreement at the store before buying my PS3, I would have pass on it and saved my money. (Just saying.)

IMO, if you weren't doing sh!t that screws people over or rips people off, there would be no need for this type of waiver agreement.

Everytime I turn around Sony's doing some type of shady half legal BS.

To me this is just a LAME ass way to protect yourself. (while forcing your customers to not protect themselves.)
