Is there a PS3 FW Update abound?
Hopefully it`s something good. It`s about do for a big update.
Please In-game voice chat or SKYPE,, PLEASE SONY !!! U CAN DO IT !!
I don't care too much about voice chat just give me native MKV support.
yeah, skype sounds like a great idea. you can not only communicate with anyone on the ps3, but also people on their psp's and with the fee, their cell phones. i also wish they can improve the actual chat room system. why not stream music to each other from your harddrive? or allow youtube to stream videos while both of you watch it? my friend and i use chat rooms a lot when not playing games and sometimes it gets a little boring sitting there not being able to do other stuff like being able to access the web browser or your music. i think sony can manage this. just yesterday i found out that you look at each other's pictures, so why not with music?
I don't care if it's skype or what...any form of Xgame chat...those that play Demon's Souls know exactly what I am talking about...back me up Penny!
i've been hearing a lot of issues with chatting or whatever with demon's souls. what's the big deal with it? and also, is the game really good?
I agree we need mkv support then i wont ever have 2 convert/transcode again. I want skype i dont really care for in game chat seriously if im playing a multiplayer game or a single player with a deep story why in the hell would i want 2 talk 2 somebody playing another game.
Just software updates. Correct me if I am wrong but isn't there a big difference between the two?
IN game chat is the last piece of the puzzle for the PSN. The problem with talking to friends in DS is the game doesnt pause so you cant just stop anywhere to go to XMB. And who wants to stop to type when you are playing a game!
The game is amazing, but there is no in game chat whatsoever....Like Pennywise said: typing in game is annoying when you are trying to organize without a pause button
uncharted beta ftw
U2 beta ftw indeed, coop is pretty damn tough.
I don't care about cross game chat either. I think the text chat thing is good enough. @1.2 completely agree. I want MKV support, there are too many things i can only find in the MKV format.
Software updates does not necessary mean firmware updates. Software usually refer to games.
I'd love to see the PSP get WMV and avi support.
hunting down only for mp4/mp3/etc formats is annoying.
@3.1 Get a video converter. Takes ~1 hour to convert a full length movie.
i could convert, but it's more of a pain in the ass to wait for it converting when i could just search a little bit more to find the same thing with a compatible format. or better yet, the psp can support more codecs.
Where did thegamingowl get this info from?
I have a question about these "updates" to the PS3... I only turn on my PS3 once every other month or so and I'm bombarded with updates yet they never seem to do anything new. So what exactly do they do?
some updates do a lot more than others while some almost seem like they do virtually nothing. if you don't use your ps3 regularly, you will never notice on what's being added to you through the updates. the last few updates have been pretty weak. they featured: a copy and paste feature when using the web browser slightly faster load times for syncing your trophies and stuff in game text chat (sounds lame, right?) and thats basically about it as far as my memory serves.
The biggest update was in game XMB and trophes.
Thanks guys. Not sure how I managed to get a disagree by asking a question... perhaps I offended a Sony fan somehow.
I love how you two morons clearly set up and planned your conversation. Kinda funny how desperate you are. @ Murderdolls. Everyone on this site knows you're a fanboy so why hide it? Im talkin about the conversation below.
you can always check whats new on the playstation.com that is if you really have a PS3 ..
So.. Can anyone please tell me where is that "Big Unannounced Title" that Sony suposedly were gonna anounce yesterday (wednesday)?
It was that racing game they showed at the Sony conference.
But that game was announced in the Sony press conference (tuesday), and the E3 schedule mark the 7:45 p.m. on wednesday with the line "Unannounced Sony Title.. This could be big!".. So..? What hapenned?
I just told you what happened they demo'd the game live for 30 minutes and everybody left. How did I get a disagree? What I said was a fact. "ModNation Racers -- Sony's racing construction kit." was the "Unnanounced PS3 Exclusive - This could be big!" thing.
Really? well.. that suck, thanks anyway :P Edit: I didn't disagree with you BTW.. Must be some Sony freak fanboy that got desillusioned.
I think it was supposed to be Agent or Final Fantasy XIV: Online.
Most likely for the PSP. Maybe it has to do with the system being able to launch movie marketplace.
Upon enabling this option it will save the world by creating a new form of energy called "RROD" that will help to power the future human life form people of earth the green planet.. next to the red one.... if you've reached the big one you have gone to far... Toasty!
its wipeout hd fury update.......dont make stuff up people!!
http://www.us.playstation.c... notice how it says Software not Firmware
ok so when there is not a frimware released for at least another two months...August....what will you say?
- Voice messages - Cross game invites, for ALL games - Party chat - Muting system etc - True skill matchmaking - Gamer feedback - netflix PSN is sooo far behind lol
Yeah. Because you enjoy talking to eight guys while watching netflix and gilmore girls? lawl. If you say yes, you're a fcking fa*ot.
You can do FAR more than that. But if you like gilmore girls, it's a possibilty to do that. No, I don't like gilmore girls.... It beats walking around in HOME with a bunch of transvestites and pedophiles though.
....which also beats being on Live and playing against another bunch of transvestites and paedophiles...and you have to pay for that. Live...the home of the pissy teenagers who send countless abusive messages when they lose at a game. As much as i like the functionality of Live, the majority who use it are tosspots. And it seems when they get bored of their 360 and Live, they come on here, dont they MoOks? ;-)
a lot of games already support such features (muting, feedback, etc.) the only feature that i really see xbl being better over psn is that damn cross game chat which any gamer can live without. also the netflix thing? ever heard of just using a web browser and stream anything outside the limited content of netflix?
The number of paedophiles and transvestites would be far greater in HOME than on LIVE. Infact, I would go as far to say that HOME give's people warped ideas in their heads to go and commit these paedophilic activities. It can be a place that nurture's the minds of sick people and eventually leads to people becomming dirty perverts. I've seen they way people act in the cinema of HOME, the courtyards and the uncharted bar when a female avatar appears. I've witnessed a female sitting in the cinema, watching the twilight trailer, and a male come up to her and sit down between her legs and shake his head. Just goes to show what type of people $ony are trying to "entertain"
omg ignore him...maybe he'll go away
excuse me agentx I mean mooks wtf do you care?? Seriously halo 3 awaits you!! go play on your subscription fee'd online gaming video conferencing 10 guy at 1 time bear backing all male communication device.
Its probably in reference to the sense.me application for the PSP - which, incidentally has been on Sony Ericsson phones for a while now and is something that has no relevance to me whatsoever.
PSP Media Go and whatever that Song Sense tool was for the PSP/PSP Go.
Sadly, this is most likely the truth. But we will continue to hope anyway.
If some of you have singstar you know that the game has voice recognition, this would be good to have in the XMB just say warhawk and there we go.
And now the world is too lazy to press the dpad twice and x once?? C'mon...the ps3 is idiot proof as it is.
Sony needs to announce backwards compatibility via emulation for PS2 games.
Can you watch youtube and Hulu? lol, no, you have to pay XBL and you have to pay Netflix. For us, it's free and high quality. Call us when you can do that. But hey, at least you have Facebook and twitter, something we've had since PS3 launched.
hm. We'll see.
He needs to delete some messages, lol
it's fake i have the same email and it doesnt have that
It's about time you made a firmware update that's worthwhile and not pointless like the photo organiser you added. Please add In Game VOICE CHAT! That is all I want, I want to be able to chat to my friends anytime!
You guys do remember that the PS3 technically has the ability to take in-game screenshots that save directly to the HDD? Except the problem is, Sony didn't integrate the feature onto the PS3 itself but left it up to developers to implement in each game. I don't think there's a single game that supports this yet.
...WipeOut HD does it.
flOw takes in-game screen shots
MGS4 does it as well.
i hope its - Voice messages - Cross game invites, for ALL games - Party chat - Muting system etc - True skill matchmaking - Gamer feedback
Ha ha,,, The software update was media go for the PSP... How naive can you be, people.
Hopeffully in-game voice chat or Skype that also works in game. I am sick of not beeing able to do any thing else while talkign to a friend. if they launch Skype and it only works outside games it will still be a cool extra for the PS3 but it will be boring.
After reading the title sentence up there, I will not even bother clicking the link. That makes no effing sense whatsoever. "Is there a PS3 FW Update abound?" WTF? Not one usage of the word "abound" can be properly applied in any way whatsoever in that sentence.
