"The Playstation 3 2.10 update that has recently been reported on Neogaf has now been revealed by the Official UK Playstation website to be true. The update will be released tomorrow with the following features:"
just so refreshing to have a company that listens to its clients wants and needs
This is true ...in that has been one of my only complaints of sony also....I mean quitting a game to answer an email???no go
In-game XMB has been requested massively since PS3 launched. They say they're listening, but 13 months later and I still can't acess my friends list in game.
Sony has officially acknowledged the wish of ingame XMB, and confirmed they are working on it... Patience my son.. We have alot of other great things to play with, especially now that we have divx/xvid support ;)
This is waiting!
This is Ignoring.
I just back home from college and what do I find? My five free Blu Ray movies waiting, a ton of PS3 games I've ordered, a sale on NGS at Best Buy for $40, and the only firmware I was looking forward to.
For anyone who has read my posts, you know I am a Sony fan, and today has proven to me I was not wrong in my choice for a console and that my loyalty will remain for next year.
You are annoying
Aha, what movies you see would be up to your imagination xD, eh guys
Awesome Ruibing, have fun with that and I can't wait for tomorrow. No more transcoding and TVersity's use will be on the decline now.
For everyone else talking about ingame XMB, yes it's totally freaking annoying to quit a game to answer a message from a friend asking you if you want to play the same game you just quit. But have you guys really thought about why it isn't here yet? My guess is that they need to remove some of the bloat from the OS to reduce the footprint so they can bring it up inside of games without hindering performance.
Of course all we want is universal access to messaging, friends, and music so logically those things shouldn't take up much space but alas we're not working on it so we don't quite know. I'd rather them get it right the first time instead of rushing it to release and it breaks a bunch of stuff, everyome complains about THAT, and we get another point release. How many times have we seen that happen already?
wow sure is a lot of updates for this console! Proves the fact that they rushed this console out! Even the games that are half finished proves that..
So another update means more people complaining about problems about their PS3
Yes jay, because everyone knows updates are the work of evil and should never be done on a system because no one EVER wants new and updated features. If I recall correctly, didn't the 360 just get divx playback in a *gasp* update? More importantly that system WAS rushed out the door, attempt at trolling failed.
Thats it!!!no more waiting on the sidelines for me,im buying my ps3 tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
movies, games and everything in between !!!
im gonna fail my spring term so, so baaaaaaad, lol.
somebody please tell me what exactly u can do with divx support cause i honestly dont know.
Updates are always great news. As lynx posted, it is nice to have Sony listening to the customer base.
This is bad news. Why if Sony was going to come out with an update didn't they release it sooner? Sorry I already spent my last penny on items that will be shipped today and arrive before Christmas. Maybe next year...
' 2.1 - How do you go from 2.01 to 2.10?

Simple really 2.01 was just to fix a bug. Since this update is bigger its represented as a higher number i.e. 2.10
The numerical jump occurs because 2.02 thru 2.09 were likely internal candidates that either did not pass Q&A or else did not have all the features included with 2.10. Haven't you ever noticed Nvidia's drivers are not numerically sequential? Find a better way to attack Sony.
happy happy joy joy :)
I agree and the DivX, WMV & Blu Ray 1.1 updates are welcome but I don't ever recall anyone begging for a voice changer!!!!
Whose idea was that??
I guess it helps...makes PSN clean
My neighbor's daughter is 15 and she was interested in this to get the boys off her back everytime she was in a chat session. She told us she wanted to talk about games like RFOM or COD4 and suddenly she was getting hit on.
Hi! Is your daughter hot??
Oh ok it's not BS then.
It is a shame about no Xvid. Becuase alot of avis these days use Xvid.
Xvid is DivX compatible, so they should work.
voice changer, happy for girls , sad for those haunt dogs...
btw good to have blu-ray 1.1 and divx =)
i wonder if there newer PS3 gonna have a DivX certified sticker on the box and outside the console
I just want to be able to watch http://www.stage6.com videos on my PS3 though the browser... so if that got that then I'm happy.
Once again Sony proves to the media and the customers that the PLAYSTATION 3® is the primary source for videogame and multimedia needs.
With true DivX and Windows Media support, the PS3 is able to do something that Microsoft is unable to do on it's own platform, store movies on the hard drive.
I thought this was full DiVX support yet it won't play files made in v3.11? And you can't play DiVX files over 2gig?? The 2gig shouldn't be a huge problem but the v3.11 is just lame.. I wanted total support.
Also, I would be curious to know if it supports XViD since it really is just a hybrid of DiVX and uses the .avi extension.. The 360 does it.
The voice changer thing sounds just annoying.. The original Xbox did this and I'm glad MS removed it from the 360.. It was funny for like a day and even though people didn't use it much at all the ones who did just sounded stupid.
Prejudiced people are more annoying. Now a lot of people can enjoy online gaming.
edit: Young lads and girls/women. Yes razer it would be nice for them to play without having abuse.
What are you talking about??
I really hope you aren't saying prejudice against 13yo boys who sound like little girls??
I think we better called the ACLU! LOL
Deep: Ah yes, and they won't get made fun of when they sound like Mr. Roboto?? Kids shouldn't be gaming with adults anyway without some type of parental supervision.. Believe me, voice masking isn't going to save these people in the slighest.
Spiderfish: I never said anything about a 2+gig file being in v3.11. I think you need to learn to read better. My only example is I encoded the Lord of the Rings trilogy and put it all into one large file(all 3 movies) and yes it is over 2 gigs. But LIKE I SAID IN MY POST it really isn't going to matter. v3.11 divx does matter because I do have lots of encodes I made a few years ago that require an older codec. Lastly, PSNID: PerfectGun
beoluve: That goes for you too!! Just because I question some of the features doesn't mean I'm not happy. Read my past comments and you will see that I give credit where I see credit is due.
You have to show me a single movie file nowadays that has more than 2GB and was encoded with DivX 3.11... stop complaining and wait for the user feedback since obviously you don't have a PS3.
what feature you put on PS3. it will be crap for razer. Yeah why? sour loser
I have vc on my computer.
Kind of pointless,but funny...maby?...
Next up hopefully in-game XMB... but not really a feature that I am too concerned about. Down here we have such crappy online that we are just happy to be able to play an online game - not going to congest the line with voice and video as well...
Great for DivX / Xvid... that is more what I can use until we get better internet broadband...
I agree razer it does suck about DivX 3.11. Some avis I have use that codec :( Ah well like the 360 this update is not 100 % perfect
The 360 version doesn't support old DiVX versions as well.. I was really hoping that Sony would step up and support it all so I can use just the PS3 as my media hub..
Props to you mate for actually trying to have a conversation about this versus the people that replied to my comment. +Bubble!
I'm well chuffed DivX is finally here, but about a quart of my collection are DivX 3.11. I've been collecting for many years so alot of my earlier movies are 3.11. I wonder if its possible to do a quick up convert for all 3.11 content to DivX 5 or 6? If I can just quickly convert my 3.11 movies to a later version without waiting hours and loosing quality then its not TOO bad, but still. All this parping on about having FULL support is kinda lost now. Also, 2GB limit means we are going to have a hard time with DivX HD.....
Still pleased! Just a bit let down with the lack of 3.11.
its cool that your helping out all those people that love to watch movies and other videos but could you help us gamers out and get us this in-game XMB.
wmv playback. awesome!! thanks sony!!!
makes psn alot more clean definetely.
now while i RARELY hear alot of assholes online.
the girls that play can pretend there guys so people wont be so prejudice against them are start making sexual comments about them
(of course there are assholes on psn buy i've only heard ONE. and im happy about that)
WMV, nice touch Sony
They've had WMV for music for ages.
That's .WMA Windows Media Audio this is Video.
Oops my bad :P
YES!!! Divx the way it should be on a console. This is what we anticipated since In-Game XMB was still in the works. Im happy with the update. And the voice changer seems pretty cool too.
Wow I can't believe how many people are complainning about an update where the users gets more features. Yes it's not XMB, but you just got support for DIVX, the ability to play .wmv movie files, and the FIRST blu-ray player on the market that can handle 1.1 Profile. Which is ironic as it's the cheapest blu-ray player, and the first or one of the first blu-ray player on the market (oldest).
Pretty good update if you ask me.
I would agree, if in game XMB was ready, it would be included and I'd rather they didn't just rush it out and then have to rush out a patch because it doesn't work.
I dunno how they pull WMV off.. but Microsoft is happy, their codec is being used and promoted in their competitor machine. Sony,Microsoft, Consumer everybody happy.
Hopefully this update, can be d/l hassel free.
Windows Media Video-a format that was invented by the Microsoft Corporation
XBOX 360-An attempt of a multimedia/gaming console invented by the Microsoft corporation.
Ultimately, with the hard drive space that is in every Premium and Elite versions of the XBOX 360, it's easy to assume that Microsoft would be able to store Windows Media Video formats on their home console.
Unfortunately that is not the case. Due to their money laundering tactics, this feature has been omitted from the XBOX 360 and can only be found on the PLAYSTATION 3® Home Entertainment System.
It's a sad day for XBOX users when the PS3 can run Microsoft's own formats better than they can.
When you have a large video marketplace like on the 360 you use much of your HDD space for that type of content. The 360 allows you to access everything via a network share. I have 3 terrabytes on my network why would I want to put everything on my 360?? I use that space for games and game demos.
"I use that space for games and game demos."
Problem is, the P-niS 3 doesn't have much games.
damn i need to upgrade my harddrive. Wait.. does the divx support include the browser? That would be sweet because I can watch even more great movies on the PS3 web browser for free.
"damn i need to upgrade my harddrive." Just stream :)
=( so i can't do that. Flash drives with movies and the web browser are my friends.
I can watch all the anime fansubs i have on my ps3? most of them are in the .avi format.
With the Voice Changer & no MUTE button?? ROFL It's going to suck playing on PSN!!!
MS implemented a voice changer, from day 1 of XBL. The idea was similar; so people wouldn't fear talking so much to people they didn't know.
It soon turned out to be an irritating & annoying toy for the ignorant little kids and d0rks. But at least we could MUTE them. Have fun. :|
I don't think we will see it anytime soon. I think Sony is going to just wait until Home comes out. Love the 1.1 and Divx part of this update.
Does this mean that I can watch Youtube videos through my Playstations 3's web browser? This update seems pretty sweet because I don't have to burn my porn on DVD's anymore just to watch them!
You can already watch Youtbube video's through the PS3 Web Browser
Only thing I wished they added in this update that SHOULD have been there is sequential video playback. I hate having a tv series on my hard drive and have to scroll down to the next episode and hit play. I usually leave it on in the background while I work or something so if it stops, it gets annoying after a while. Afterall this feature is on the PSP. Overall I'm psyched about this update, can't wait to see what they add next.
well I guess microsoft gets money all over the place, seriously, i never knew we are getting wmv support as well. kind of Ironic that this is on a PS3. Although I am very happy that we are getting this, this is possibly the best Christmas present we were given by Sony So far. Cant wait to try it out!
And then the 1.2 software update for Warhawk on wensday...then the first booster pack for warhawk on thursday!
Its a good christmas...
Yup I love it keep em coming sony. Now I do want in game XMB but at lease sony knows that we want it. So I can wait.
PWNSAUSE you do realize some sony computers also have windows. Sony and Microsoft are laughing all the way to the bank everyday. You kids act as though these 2 companies hate one another. I bet these 2 companies are working together on the console wars. Have you ever noticed that each generation the graphics are pretty similar on sony and microsofts console, kinda ironic.That's why I own all systems, you get the best of all worlds. Not act like some kid thats a fanboy cause he lives in the ghetto and can only afford 1 of the systems.
thats what im saying, very ironic right?
yuhooooo. Excellent FW upgrade from Sony. Can't wait to play a BD movie with profile 1.1 and play my DIVX porn videos collection. :)
I hope Sony will increase the number of games that will support DS3 controller via FW upgrades.
Now it's coming, I'm downloading.
Files that are 2GB or more cannot be played
"WHAT THE FVCK IS THAT ABOUT" ????
My HD videos I have downloaded of course is over 2GB ... Sony .. what the hell are you doing ??
And as said about ... oh, I don't know .. 1,000,000,000,000,000 ... where the hell is in-game XMB ??????????
Let me guess, "JUST WAIT" .. it's coming ... someday ... maybe !! This was all folks chatted about for FW 2.0, in-game XMB was suppose to be in that FW version.
WEll, at least all the pedaphiles are happy with the Voice changer feature .. JOKE !!
Its to stop Torrent freak Jack Sparrows out there... It wont last, they will change it...
