Firmware 2.36 is now live. Will update on what it brings. (The Update is only available over the PlayStation 3 system for now)
dam you. I was just about to submit this :) Well I am downloading it right now edit: finish updating :)
When Sony says Soon, they mean it. Well, aleast for Updates ^^
Way to go Sony!
For the PSP is now available to download over WiFi.
I hope this improves playin civilisation online, a couple of times it has freezed on me playing online just after someone leaves the game and I have to switch of my PS3. Plus they both counted as losses oh and 2.4 @ E£ =)
im gonna go update it soon :)
Sony did say soon. http://www.n4g.com/Redirect...
yeah, that was pretty quick. I was expecting this either tomorrow, or Thursday
Wow man, you really did call it! I read your comment a few hours ago and thought, "hmm maybe..." Now... BRING ON 2.4!
this time soon ment soon!
I had to put something there.!
copy my link I posted under yours
xD I was like, "WTF the link just take me back to N4G"
Tell me if this feature is new or old. I can now play music on ps3 while using the web browser too. I remember trying this awhile back and it not working. Yet now it is capable of doing both at once.
that old. been doing that for a while now
It's old. We had that feature awhile ago.
This was a feature early on, as far back as I can remember. In fact, I remember listening to podcasts while surfing a few months after getting mine (launch 60 gig).
Doing my update now.
Wow...the trolls are at full force today. xD
I see I have not attempted it for awhile thanks. Going to see if the ipod in MGS4 recognizes mp3's off the HDD yet......nope not yet doh.
All I care about this update is it's one update closer to 2.4.
Time on this pointless update.. i'll be awaiting 2.40 TYVM
I guess you don't intend on playing any games online then?
have to download it
awesome, finally 2.4 has now been officially confirmed to have in game xmb and trophies, sweet!!!!! http://blog.us.playstation.... the link
they'll have to wait until i log off of mgs4 good to see sony sticking to their releases i actually assumed that their announcement of 2.36 meant huge delay
maybe next tuesday 2.40, also this could be patching games for musis, trophy
yesss. a little closer to 2.4. sweet.
slow down a bit on the Xbots dont kill them to fast lets have a little fun with them... MGS4 is just too mutch for them now :D
Sony really DID mean it when they said MS's GTAIV DLC was the last straw. o_O
yay now i have to wait another 4 months for 2.4!
Um PS3 doesn't take 4 months to do updates. The lazy 360 developers take 6 months in fact they are taking one year to do the next update after spring update was canceled.
lazy developers? i guess it depends how you spin it. but hey, at leased they put in in game xmb(guide) features the DAY it came out, and not screwd their customers with delays and broken promisses .. seriously the ps3 came out november 2006, it is now june 2008!!! where the falken hell is in game xmb!?!?!!? now thats what you can truly, honestly call "lazy developers"
broken promises ?? they seem to be being fulfilled pretty well as of lately.
with idol dr phil um what feature does the 360 got beside in game xmb since the launch date?
Unified friends list achievements cross game invites custom soundtracks cross game voice chat ability to purchase items online without a credit card larger list of games much more attractive price You know, all the crap that PlayStation owners have been wanting for almost three years.
The 360 can play Divx files now.
I'd prefer a system that was built properly from day one than a system that has trophies from day one but has a failure rate worse than any console in history. I would also rather a system that promises to provide these features and more, and not charge me to use it. I would also prefer a Ps3 because it has better exclusives and it's future is a hundred times brighter than the 360. I'm no fanboy, if the 360 had have provided what I wanted in a system, not just which system had certain features first, but which system had the best potential for the future, I would own one. Keep saying we had better online features first all you want, but in my opinion, that stuff will always come second to a quality system and quality games... Even if it means you have to wait a bit for the rest of the perks.
Ps3 has been doin that for awhile now...
@altis & Chris Keep you troll-remarks-in-disguise to the open zone. This is merely firmware news and not worth bringing anything negative up about... ...unless you wanna troll, hmmmm Chris? As for what features the Ps3 has or hasn't and how long it's taking. 1. The Ps3's only 1.5 years old(US release) younger for Euro release. 2. Sony doesn't have the online gaming service and experience that Microsoft has had with Windows and the old xbox. 3. Sony tends to take awhile before it copies or betters what the competition does if it hasn't done it first themselves. Sony should have just copied everything that the xbl was offering from get go as well as the wiimote but these is all water under the bridge now. 4. Sony likes to ensure everything that they do have works properly, hence how long it takes to implement new things. Get if right from get go. 5. Xbox 360 is purpose built for hardcore gamers including the net service and provides everything that the HARDCORE wants. The Ps3 is an all round entertainment machine - appealling to a broader market of owners. You're comparing have to the have nots here folks. Even without all the extras that the xbox 360 offers the Ps3 is still a damn fine machine and why I clearly favour it ahead of my 360.
Yeah the hardware is questionable but that hasn't stopped me from playing on a service that works. God forbid some one pays for a service that actually works. I've been on it since November and I keep wanting to go back to XBL. All the online features that the PSN only gamers have been wanting, XBL owners have been enjoying since Nov 2005. PSN has been a joke from day one. There is a reason PSN is free. Edit: QuackPot, both systems are hardcore systems. One of them is a obvious gaming machine while the other tries to become everything plus the kitchen sink. And if the PS3 appeals to a broader market, why isn't selling anywhere near what the Wii sells?
Why the h3ll are you even in a topic for ps3 owners? Did your blind eyes not read the title that this discussion is regarding an update for ps3??? WTF are you even here flaming the ps3 network? You obviously dont have a ps3, so you have no say. Go hide in your little xbox section with the other half brains you lame POS
I have more than enough rights to be here since I am a PS3 owner. Don't believe me, send me a message on PSN from your PS3, if you even have one. Oh and the open zone is that way --->
"PSN has been a joke from day one. There is a reason PSN is free." Playing through PSN results in a lot less lag than XBL. Don't take it from me, here's word from the Battlefield: Bad Company devs on the recent demo: "We are aware that some players on the Xbox 360 are experiencing lag, caused by MS server configurations, and we are working on a solution to this. Players playing the demo on the Playstation 3 are unaffected by this lag issue." PSN may be free, but for gaming online it's the closest to a lag free service.
2.4 in ~ 7days
i hope your right............waiting patiently
oh great... this means 2.4 won't be out for like another month... thanks a bunch Sony for delaying 2.4 even more after almost 2 years of waiting... ***holes
How can something without a release date be delayed?
Sony never confirmed the existence of 2.40 until a few days ago, and they still haven't set a release date. They said 2.36 was coming soon, it came today, exactly the same flow of events as the last update. Sony wait until everything works properly before releasing something, that includes firmware updates, I predict an E3 release for 2.40 to allow Sony to showoff the new features at the expo. I could be wrong, I sure hope it comes out before that, but that's my best guess.
mm... no one has mentioned that this update is a "base" update for the 2.40 one
nobody knows that for a fact, all it sais on the blog is Stability for PS titles. I hope you're right though, I'm so sick of Sony delaying anything they can think of edit: wow yeah great, im getting disagrees for saying 2.4 soon is unlikely... what a great community... -_-
because it doesnt work that way, firmware is independent of it's previous versions. you could install any version firmware update from any older version, you dont need to 'step' updates. I would say the likley cause is that the 'improved system stability' would have been part of 2.40 but something pushed 2.40 further out, so they updated this part now.
I think what Stray Wulf meant is by releasing an update now, it must mean that 2.4 isn't as close as we hoped or they could have just waited to release 2.36 with 2.4 instead of separate updates!
I was actually replying to Gambare and Stray_Wulf posted at the same time as i did
I hate when that happens...thanks for the clarity!
I think people disagreed with you for say Sony delayed it. Since Sony haven't delayed 2.40, it was never set for the 18th in the first place. I hate it when rumours are taken as fact and someone is blamed for it when they've done nothing wrong, exactly what's happened here with Sony and 2.40.
Let me go download... GO CELTICS!!! Edit: We are the CHAMPIONS..
WE WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (ALREADY) BEAT LA!!!! (ALREADY) BEAT LA!!!! (ALREADY) BEAT LA!!!! (ALREADY) BEAT LA!!!! (ALREADY) BEAT LA!!!! (ALREADY) BEAT LA!!!! (ALREADY) BEAT LA!!!! (ALREADY) BEAT LA!!!!
Nothing major, probably just fixing some technical issues.
whats the point of this update again? if it dosent add any new features then its pointless.
Any update is a welcome update. If all your going to do is complain what is the point of posting. It's free, so how can you complain.
...the system stability when playing select PlayStation format software titles. We get these updates every once and awhile.
anyone getting trouble installing the update, it keeps telling me at 29 % that i have an error occurred during the update operation. Contact techinical support for assistance. (8002F157) anyone have any idea's how to fix this??? because i cant do anything when i turn on the ps3, it keeps loading up to the update installing it.
I have no clue what to tell you. Call Sony. I have had no problems downloading and installing the update. Mine is already done. It is by far the fastest update I have ever had done.
God I hope this doesn't happen to me.
using a download accelerator, and then transfer to my ps3 with a mem card
That happened to me with an update some time ago. If its the same as what happened to me its not too big a problem. I just left my PS3 for a few hours and tried again and it worked. Hope its the same for you man and not anything major
