can we sticky this and just change the number of the update when needed? it'll save time. this will happen with every update and probably has nothing to do with the update. people just need a reason for when things go wrong and i'm betting that one of the 60 million PS3 would have gone wrong during the update anyway.

this reminds me of the halo reach nonsense when people were reporting it had bricked their Xbox360s... it wasn't the game, it was just because the game sells so damn well that the law of averages almost guarantees a percentage of failures when you insert the latest and greatest game that everyone and their dog bought.

these articles are dull, boring and deliberately inciteful.

L.M.A.O, I should approve this just the laughs. I mean, really.

"One user here claimed the whole download process is a little bit slow and despite of his decent internet bandwidth connection, obtaining the latest firmware took him quite some time to complete."

"Meanwhile, if you’ll search twitter, one player reports the new update might break the Netflix app and the process of registering on DC Universe Online. Luckily, ****the problem for the video-streaming app can be remedied by simply uninstalling / reinstalling it.****"

"The last one came from the comment section on EU PSBlog whereas a particular user is still having some issues loading a particular website despite of the “browser improvements” included on the firmware"

That's the US gaming media for ya. These are so minor and all "three" can be fixed by the user (well two, idk what pron site the third was trying to visit).

"that's the US gaming media for ya"

Umm, no. It's a Philippino site, feel stupid now?

Dante1122349d ago (Edited 2349d ago )

Yeah, you don't even need to connect to the PSN (SEN) to use Netflix.

@ Jobesy

"Umm, no. It's a Philippino site, feel stupid now?"

In Texas. Texas isn't apart of the US anymore? Do you feel stupid now? XD

Edit: Lmao @ his agrees. I can see Russia from my window *nods*

darthv722349d ago

is that even a word? I know of insightful and incitable and both mean different things. lol

GribbleGrunger2348d ago

@Darth: yep, it's insightful lol...

MysticStrummer2348d ago

@ darth and gribble - No, he means inciteful. Whether it's a word or not depends on which dictionary you look at, but it's in the Oxford Dictionary.

I actually enjoy browsing the web on my ps3 now:D much faster and works way better!! for good quality porn and even writing comments on N4G is a lot better!

Speed-Racer2348d ago (Edited 2348d ago )

I hate to break it to you Dante, but just because a site is HOSTED in Texas does not mean it is a US operated website. It is indeed a Philippino website. There were spamming stories over at TechSpy. I should add that that contributer actually has a numerous accounts.

It's caused issues with the Official Wireless headset.

kneon2349d ago

Mine is working fine.

NiKK_4192349d ago (Edited 2349d ago )

What is the issue? I have a pair, but I haven't used them since the update.

Edit: Nevermind, just saw the post below. I'm going to have to test this out.

Vortex3D2349d ago (Edited 2349d ago )

That's the issue with mandatory update. If Sony doesn't make everyone update just to be able to use PS3 like before, then no one can say the firmware update broke something.

What if you are standing in front of those PS3 that broke after update, what are you going to say? If this is proven in front of Sony, what are they going to do about it?

The point is Sony makes it mandatory to update to be able to use your PS3 online and play future games and if anything break because of the firmware, too bad.

Has updating PS3 firmware become like sending your car to the shop and they always tell you something needs to be fixed? With car, you don't have to do anything but with PS3, you are required to send it "to the shop" for update even it's working.

After I downloaded the update I immediately got a headache! Had to be from the update! Copy and paste this article after every update. Had my PS3 since day one and never experienced any problems after an update.

The 4.10 has caused a really annoying issue with the Official Sony Wireless Headset.

Microphone monitoring is now enabled all the time with no way to turn it off, even by muting the microphone on the headset.

It's also causing echoing and an annoying static noise.

Solid_Snake372348d ago

I was playing uncharted 3 and I didn't notice aany of these Problems?? Is there something wrong with my ps3 O.o

CynicalVision2349d ago

Well that didn't take long, it seems like every update is met with articles like this.

kreate2349d ago

ProphecyElite2349d ago

The update process took me 10 minutes with my crappy 5 mb download speed DSL. I have had no problems at all.

Thank the gods they updated the browser!!!

thedude442348d ago

irepbtown2348d ago

4mbps here and it took a few minutes.
I sometimes get 8mbps if i'm lucky.
When I go around to my cousins, average is 50mbps.
