Pinoytutorial: A few hours after the launch of PS3 4.10 firmware update, some users are experiencing problems like inability to use Netflix app, browser loading issues, etc. More details on this report.
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?
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 http://www.ip-adress.com/ip... Edit: Lmao @ his agrees. I can see Russia from my window *nods*
is that even a word? I know of insightful and incitable and both mean different things. lol
@Darth: yep, it's insightful lol...
@ 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!! REDTUBE.com for good quality porn and even writing comments on N4G is a lot better!
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.
Mine is working fine.
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.
it has i cant even chat
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 update cause me to get flat tire
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. http://community.us.playsta...
I was playing uncharted 3 and I didn't notice aany of these Problems?? Is there something wrong with my ps3 O.o
Well that didn't take long, it seems like every update is met with articles like this.
U dont need to be even connected to the psn to use netflix ....
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!!!
crappy 5mb? i have 2mb and its great!
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. Jealousy ^_^
*sighs* i should have known this lame news would come straight after update. oh well, i forgotten to bet. next update, i must bet to win millions. /s
Oh boy, I just ordered a Sony official 7.1 headset and I hope the noise bug caused by this FW 4.10 update is fixed soon enough.
you don't know that it's caused by the FW. there's simply no way that an update that only improved the browser, added an auto date & time sync, and implemented a name change would cause other hardware issues. it's called the post hoc fallacy. http://www.fallacyfiles.org...
Wrong. Sony have admitted it's a problem on the forum and they are working on a fix.
Awww did it take too long for them to update it with their precious high-speed Internet? I guess more speed isn't everything :)
update took an hour for me via wifi using my phone as a hotspot. excellent.
Took me 3 minutes, then tried installing Qore took 10-15 minutes :/
It is amazing how I or anyone I know ever experience anything after an update.Could it be that maybe the problem is small scale and it is not wide spread? Nah, why would it ever be like that?
I have had a problem that when I close the browser when loading a page, it sometimes just shows the background, no XMB. I just held down the "O" buttons and it seemed to fix it. The update only took ~20 minutes for me to download and install.
I have noticed issues with the headset. And I can't download themes off of ps3 themes anymore :( Dropbox Support is revolutionary though and so is ps3youtube.com I'm using the ps3 browser right now
Ok the browser was top notch and almost perfect to be honest .. and you can watch live streams too , that's something good :] !!
One thing I hate is that when I pick a video to watch on YouTube XL, the keyboard keeps popping up. It never did that before the update. It may be a minor issue but it's so annoying.
Yeah, i got that to, but on the regular youtube site. And i also got the browser stalling/freezing on boot-up.
Had a PS3 since day one. Me and all of my friends have never suffered from any problems related to updates. I think its peoples PS3s dying (probably trapped in a cupboard) and they think its the update
I haven't had any problem at all. In fact with my ps3 wireless headphones I can actually hear myself from the mike. Its a really nice benefit. PS3youtube is even more stable, There's nothing else quite like being able to dump any HQ video you can find(ps3youtube)onto your ps3. Just last night I somehow aquired some 17 odd music videos back to back with no 'lost' connections. It didn't even freeze or lock up! (except the netflix web site in fullscreen)
