The PS3 firmware 2.60 is now live.
the slowest download ever!!! wow half hour to get 14% done. it must be bogging down the servers cuz its so slow.....
I'm on 11% It's been 15 minutes. Watching the Killzone 2 interview... really interesting.
wow, that was fast
one of the fastest i've seen, considering all the supposed features listed on previous posts.
its slow for me :(
LOL, I let my sister borrow my PS3 again, I will never learn.
COME ON BOYYYYY did you ever read the bible ? come onn its one of the 11 commandments .. #11 - You Shal not lend your Playstation branded System to NO ONE ! (is number 11 because god wasent sure if it should make it number 1 so it gave it 2 nimber 1s lol)
Holy crap... that guy has gotta be drunk
come on its a joke duh!!
Damn it. This is the first firmware update i've missed because my ps3 is to advanced for its own good! Damn it if only it had a DVD drive instead of a blu-Ray one
My Blu-Ray drive failed and im without a ps3 for the first time since launch and now im missing firmware updates and games
I wish that Sony would focus more on the gamers and not focus as much on things gamers will not use.
Your not the only person in the world
I mean honestly, who will use this feature consistently?
its a double edged sword. i like my ps3 gaming console also for its non gaming features. if it were only gaming updates i would be upset that there aren't enough updates like Life with Playstation, Photo Gallery etc.. there just needs to be balance is all. we are throwing my mom a surprise bday party at my place next week. my brother is going to scan all of my moms old photos and we are going to have some fun with the gallery at the party. i also use the interactive screensavers with playstation eye during parties.
I'm sure a lot of gamers like myself will use this. I just finished playing around with the Photo Gallery and it's really great sitting down with the family and going through photos. The "sort by" features are pretty good (sorting by age, and amount of people in the picture is really neat). There have been a lot of non-gaming updates to the PS3 in the last year and I'm sure a lot of us would rather have them than not. Like BD-Live and DivX. I personally think it's awesome for them to add stuff like this, and I know everyone wants cross-game chat and hopefully things like that do get added at some point. I'm sure Sony knows what people want to see in the future from the comments on the PlayStation.Blog.
I'm a gamer. And I like the fact that I can use my PS3 for more than just gaming. Photo Gallery is a pretty good feature in my opinion.
I understand it is cool right now but what about in a month? Would'n t you rather spend the time and money doing something like improving Home, or adding a cool application gaming related?
I dropped $500 on this sweet machine and I love the gaming experience it has delivered for nearly 2 years, but at the price the ps3 is far and above just a gaming machine and I want every multi media that sony can dream up. This one will get some in my house that's for sure. Just because you don't want this feature doesn't mean a many others will appreciate it. Frankly I couldn't give a damn about cross game chat (I certainly would not pay a subscription for it) but if sony brings it in future great, you won't catch me on here moaning about them bringing a free update. 20 million users have a wide range of tastes and it seems to me sony are trying to bring out as varied experience as they can possibly do.
I purchased my PS3 to be a multimedia beast along with a killer gaming platform and both parts have served me equally as well
The Firmware team is completely independent. Complain all you want, but some people don't use cross-game messaging either. Just be happy that we continue to get these firmware updates once every two months.
I don't know why your complaining. We do have updates related to gaming. Maybe not in this firmware update. An update is better than no update. This is Sony they have separate teams doing separate things for the PS3. Its not like they use all their resources into one project at a time. Think!
What took Sony so long to implement these features. It shouldn't take that long.
This is taking forever to download!
Because everyone is downloading it at the same time.
Thats what I figured.
took about 5 min for me... Including install.
Really? Thats fast! I started it 20 minutes ago and I'm only at 47%.
Ya, after I seen it was available on here, I started to download it. zzoom zzoom
and ready for 2.7
Bring on the in-game invites and in-game chat support. LOL
These features will come in 3.00 if they come.
can someone give a me a link, cant get ps3 to work with internet Disagree? for wanting to get this update?
They currently do not have it available anywhere but PSN but just give it a few minutes.
Just shut the hell up already if someone disagrees with you. You know it, I know it, and its called trolling. You don't have to take a disagree so seriously all the time. So stop editing your post just because you got ONE disagree. Boo fkk'in hoo. And this goes to everybody that does this.
SONY All i wanted was AD2P support. (sad face and sits in the corner)
i was woundering the same a searched it its pretty cool, isn't it like dnsl sharing though?
Downloaded pretty quick for me (about 10mins) but as soon as my PS3 restarted it couldn't connect back to the internet. Anyone else have a similar problem?
3.00 will have backward compatibility i'm pretty sure.
im confuse when people say that. r you talking about like pn download of ps2 and 1 or disc base? cause how woulf disc base work wouldnt ou need a different laser or something?
Downloading it right now, slow as heck!
Imagine if it were like MGS4 and you had to keep tapping triangle to get it to download and it continued to get increasingly difficult the closer you got to completion until it fails just as you reach the threshold... oh yeah, and you're being slowly cooked alive by microwaves while you do it. Now, isn't simply hitting download SOOOO much easier? You're welcome. This has been another successful episode of Doctor Cyc's, Helping You to Help Yourself, goodnight America and God damn.
Can we delete the photo gallery icon?
because it looks like I have a folder of kids on my ps3.
I really wish Sony would take a page out of the 360 book when it comes to update. With 360 you only download what you NEED, not the whole firmware over again. Those updates are done in mere seconds while PS3 updates take 20 minutes during heavy traffic.
My PS3 got YLOD and I have to pay $150. I'm in a killing mood, cause im stuck with 360.
we don't trust u
People have been saying this fixes the 80022D11 trophy error as well as the "This is not your game save error". Thank the Lord if this is true.
I have a cable 30 meg connection and a wireless connection for my ps3 and i downloaded it in less than 5 mins. check your settings and get the faster internet connection you can afford.
Now downloading the photo gallery software...you guys do not understand how cool the photo gallery interface is...its gonna be the next xmb...just wait and see... The photo gallery software in about 105 megs...lets hope they make one like this for the music and videos...
Its even in DTS nero 6 surround sound!!!! Dang sony you went all out! Can the Xbox 360 even do DTS Nero 6? nope....
*PP runs to update ps3* and then he remembers that he doesn't have a ps3. lol. Mart doesn't either. He pretends to have one tho.
everything else game related that the PS3 is lacking.. I mean it is a GAME console correct? I don't show people slideshows of my photos..
Anyone has a direct link to the update.
I have a wireless stereo headset. Works fine for chat etc. But it can also have all audio streamed to it. Be that, movies,games,Music etc. AD2P is awesome. It needs to be put in PS3.
i've downloaded this morning (where there are less traffic). Download was quick. nearly 5 mins. Happy with the update. glad that sony only revealed it yesterday. (better than last week). I love surprises.
