Firmware v2.01 is a minor update that will improve the stability of PLAYSTATION 3.
The SIXAXIS will not turn off my PS3 like it used to.
When you press the PS button your given the option to shut it down but the (X) button stops functioning. I have to wait till it times out or Hard Boot.
I hear of the reset on the back of the Sixaxis but it does not help. Something is wrong.
Anyhow I wonder if it was the 2.00 FW that funked things up?
You know you should maybe consider the button is NOT broken as most likely!!! It's called diagnostics - look for the most likely solution
So if the button aint broke, and your pad bluetooth aint broke, and your ps3 bluetooth aint broke, then maybe FW 2.0 did something? I'm not saying you're wrong, but installing 2.0 firmware is probably quite low down the list of most likely culprits...
Do the lights flash? I have a similar problem in Warhawk, both controllers lock and will not unlock till they timeout. Its an interference problem, or bad programming
it never happened during a game, I usually shut off the ps3 via the PS button on the controller but it stopped working. The reset has not worked so I went to bestbuy and returned it, the new one works fine.
return the controller to Best Buy. The new one should work just fine.
My controller were doing the same damn thang..i thought i was crazy but i guess and im glad that im not the only 1 that this is happening to. 2.0 is killing my controllers hahaha
And didn't we just get another update?! Though I guess they're not releasing another update without a good reason.
Edit: Actually, after reading the post above I remembered I did have had an issue with the SISAXIS functionality. For some reason it was 'stuck' on steering to the left and I couldn't get it back to normal untill I gave the controller a good ol' fashion beating. Now it works fine again.
Has anyone else experienced this?
I'm mostly stoked on the possibility of DivX compatibility. It's good for anyone having issues too.
I hope this is one coming with DivX playback
that they are fixin it
i knew they'd come with it. after i DLed the firmware 2.0 my PS3 has been secured
This won't have DivX, this is a minor upgrade hence the .01, it's probably going to fix the remote start issue and other things.
My 60gig has crashed 5 times now since firmware 2.0 I am glad they are addressing this. For me it has crashed twice while trying to check my folding stats while running [email protected] Oh Well no big deal I am gonna get back to playing Uncharted :)
None with me... mine has worked flawless since launch. Great system, it really does have the iron-tank-like quality of a well built pc. You can leave it on for hours/days and not worry about it ruining the system. That's what I love most about the Ps3... sure your room is gonna feel like a damn volcano, but quality doesn't break under the heat.
Good to hear the update is coming for those expereincing problems, though.
Yeah, when I turned psp remote start on my ps3, my friend was able to turn on my ps3 with his laptop. That was weird. Other than that no real problems. I'm curious if this has happened to anyone else. My ps3 is online through a router, in which the laptop was on the same network.
THIS is what ive been waiting for because firmware version 2 stoped my ps3 from playing any discs including blue rays,alot of you havent had any problembs but some of us have, i had to take my ps3 back to the store for a new one and my old one was only 2 an a half weeks old im runnig firmware version 1.94 of the ratchet an clank disc so i carnt get online without version 2 i didnt download it again because of what happend so now 2.1 i hope will be fine.and my ps3 will live online again thanks sony for the quick responce.
Ive got a problem with the themes, if i turn a theme on blast factor and flow will not load up, however if i turn the theme off they work perfectly
I havnt had any big problems except the sixaxis a few small times and a wierd flash of small code during resistance.
At least Sony are ready to fix the problems people are getting.
And here comes the people expecting some new features like full DivX support or in-game XMB...
stopping my blue tooth controller from "synchronizing" while I'm shooting someone in CoD4. All of a sudden, I'm stuck running in a circle getting shot. I would even put up with a wired solution if it prevented that.
Didn't people have problem with 2.0? so it's more of a stability update and such. nothing more.
Because this is a quick fix for some issues, I dont think we''ll get DivX til next time. Shame though.
Is this why Oblivion has been freezing on me? Or is it because I've been keeping the machine running the game for tens of hours to raise my athletics?
oblivion is glitchy as f**k, one way i did find to stop it freezing was to not have so much stuff stored in chests, bookcases etc. Hasn't crashed in a few months since i sold all the unneeded stuff
yup people, i purchased the wonderful system today, was lucky to pick up the last 60gb from Futureshop ... so im currently downloading the uncharted demo and so i am now into the world of next-gen gaming. I'm one of the happiest people alive right now ... MWAHAHAHAHA ... anyone want to add me, my username's "amilimos" ... They probably will include the dvix and in-game with the advent of home imo ....anyway, i gotta go enjoy the beautiful console ... see you all later.
it really is the best sku that sony provided. lucky guy that you managed to find it. ohh and congratulations
1) ps3 games are on blu-ray discs so there is really no need to install much data on the HD
2) if you dont care about backwards compatiblity then it dont matter which ps3 you get.
3) in the end of the day it will still play ps3 games and blu-ray movies like its meant to be played on a ps3
good for you to get a 60gig, although you should have just gotten a 40 and upgraded the space. BC really isn't that important now with all the games coming day and date with Xbox 360. not to mention it's got plenty ofr first party exclusive and a few 3rd party exclusives coming between tomorrow and december 31st. enjoy it it's an awesome game
I recomend, Warhawk, Folkore, resistance, Heavenly Sword, motorstorm, Ninja Gaiden sigma, oblivion (if you like slow passed american RPGs) Darkness, Uncharted, Ratchet and clank, Guitar hero 3, COD4, and assassins creed, oh and if you have a hidden geek inside you like i do then the EYE OF JUDGEMENT( the most revolutionary game on the PS3 released thus far which is insanly addictive and makes you think and a marvel to look at should also be in your library of games on the bluray releases for PS3), and for the PSN, you'd be happy owning Tekken DR online, super stardust HD, puzzle fighter HD, Eye create from the PS eye camera, (i made a music video with it with a couple of my buddies yesterday it was fun) Flow and everyday shooter. and they're are others but they dont have the flair of those that i mentioned. and ofcoures you came when the PSN is getting plenty of content. like wallpares and themes, and music and tons of trailers game add ons expansion packs, PS1 classics that can be downloaded and played on both home with ps3 or on the go for PSP should you own a PSP and want to play like that, and best of all PS3 game demos. it's getting quite robust.
And that my friend is your PS3/PSN buyers guide for holiday 2007 compliments of SEVIREDgamer <--- my PSN should you decide to add me, i'll add you when i get in from work.
again happy PS3 gaming and if it's your first of the 2 next gen consoles out there the other(xbox 360) then i officially welcome yu to next gen and congrats on owning in what i consider the most cutting egde console this side of the galaxy ( the PS3) it's just my opinion though. ENJOY
WHERE's THE INGAME XMB?!?!?!?
sounds interesting, hope it's something good..
The only stability issue I have is when it gets close to no charge power. Sometimes it discconects.
A reason to turn my ps3 on other than a blu-ray movie.
are you trolling? Is it because YOU are not a gamer, and rather watch movies. Well back off and take your spam elsewhere.
I am a true gamer. I own all 3 consoles...
Ive just been drip fed good games on my 360 which I get most multiplatform games on like Call of Duty 4 with xbox live is amazing. Now im playing mario galaxy on the Wii (best platformer ever) and then next week I have mass effect for 360....
After that I may get around to trying Uncharted drakes fortune so hopefully I will be pleasently surprised... The main reason I have a ps3 is for GT5, MGS4, FF13, God of War 3 which are yet to be released....
If those are the only PlayStation games you're waiting for, why did you get the ps3 so early?
Warhawk blows gears away online.
Do you even know what a true gamer is? Owning all 3 systems doesn't make you anything. A true gamer likes games on all systems and can enjoy games on each system. When you say "I need a reason to turn on my PS3" that just proves that you aren't. Resistance, Warhawk, Ratchet, Uncharted, Folklore, Heavenly Sword, Eye of Judgment are quality, exclusive games and on shelves right now. Get your head out of your ass and stop pretending to be something you clearly aren't.
people expect too much from every update thats coming then you get disappointed and start yellin sony this sony that ..just shut up and download the latest update and accept what you are given ..
im not looking for any type of hurried advancement. i just want them to get what they are doing right. my ps3 has more problems now than before the update. an in game xmb would be really nice but id rather they take their time than messing up my ps3 with some rushed update. i just hope 2.01 comes out soon, no upgrades just fixes!
that the people who have problems are getting a fix.
when i turn my ps3 off the internet light and eyetoy still stay on. the red light on the ps3 indicates its off but the little green light for the internet, and the blue light on my eyetoy stay lit. i had to turn off the switch on the back for everything the turn off. i also have some problems with my controller connecting like stated in previous post. i hope the new update fixes this stuff.
im not opening my ps3 a lot because im afraid from the v2.00fw however i will play my new games that are going to shipped next week a lot after the new fw release/
so any ideas about the date? maybe tuesday??
Sony updates their firmware almost every single day now.
