GOONL!NE writes: I'm sure many of you PS3 gamers out there have had experiences online where some users microphones have given terrible feedback, well now, help is at hand from Sony's latest Firmware update in the shape of an Echo Canceller.
They prob didn't mention is because its useless. The setting is not available for the headset that needs it (official ps3 headset) but the setting is available for my USB headset that doesn't need it. Plus who's gonna find it tooked away deep in the settings? It should be part of the process when syncing headsets to the PS3.
i think the official headset has it built in
If it has then it doesn't work.
you do know that the official headset has to be USB synced and not bluetooth synced the first time you use it?
I'm sorry but not being able to play the two games that I want to today is really REALLY frustrating me. This 3.0 is killing my love for the PS3 right now. I'm trying to play through and beat Uncharted so I can be ready for the story in Uncharted 2 and the thing just froze on me on a part that took forever and I lost my save. I'm done trying to play the stupid game now. What kinda Slant 6-esque update is this Sony? Test your firmware before you release it... Especially test it on your FIRST PARTY GAMES!! Absolutely ridiculous... EDIT: I don't mean I'm done trying to beat Uncharted but damn, when you really want to play a game and your not sure if the system if going to freeze and start you over again, it's stupidly frustrating! That means i'll have to put this game off (which I want to play really badly) until Sony gets their act together and fixes this ridiculous 3.0 update... I'm sorry but in my situation right now (if they don't get this patched quick) this firmware was a fail in my eyes. Honestly, I'm shutting off my PS3 until an update happens because I'm gonna end up throwing a controller. I'll be on LIVE until this PS3 wants to act like it can play games again. I guess you get what you pay for... Sorry but I'm severely annoyed at this console right now and with all reason to be.
What a drama queen, only for some problem with 1 or 2 old games. everybody knows that a 3.01 is coming, only a few days after the p3.00 (no problems with it) but you have to act like if sony have killed your mom.
It froze once and you're throwing in the towel? You do know Uncharted occasionally froze before the update don't you? Actually Uncharted auto-saves after pretty much every wave of enemies, so it really shouldn't be too much trouble to play a part again. Are you playing on Crushing? I could understand your frustrations there. Don't give up though, it's a great game and you can do it!
I got two of them a Slim and a Phat...and both are have 3.0 Firmware installed...and I have found no problems...heck even now I have both folding... I gotta say the Slim is bad azzed! It is so quiet....even in intense folding...it is quiet as a mouse trying to get some cheese! The way the buttons light up on the front are killer! I have been stress testing it for a week...no issues...
Same here, it's probably your electricity voltage. Each country has a differen't one doesn't it? Maybe that's the cause of your problem. I never had any issues with mine other than running out of memory opening too many web pages.
This is good. Whenever I was having problems with my old mic(jabra), people would listen to it for so loooong, until they got pissed; Instead of just asking, or stating "something is wrong with your mic", they commence to swear their faces off at you, even when dropping out of your squad would almost completely solve their problem. At which point I become reluctant and happy to let it burn a new hole in their ear. Now I'm "official", so it's not a problem!
Not the official headset, I've never had echo with that but the playstation eye has a 4 way directional microphone array that picks up voice and cancels out all other noise it works great but problem is it recognizes an echo the same as a voice, this should alleviate that great job SONY
Don't really have an echo on my headset.
Nice find.. Could be used with my PSEye.
another find... sparcles at menu are interactive, try to change positions of xmb horizontal or vertical and watch sparcles.. :) they move with your moves :)
and shaking the controller makes the sparkles go crazy
I noticed a green aura around the Earth in the music visualizer instead of the natural blue glow. It does change back to the original from time so you may not see it first time you try. Anyone else noticed that? Anything else we've missed?
This option seems to be greyed out for me when I try to access it. Maybe because I paired my official headset through USB...? I dont know. I have only heard people having an echoe while using their PS Eye camera as a mic. It happens alot on the PSN game High Stakes at the Vegas Strip. Great feature for those that need it nonetheless.
...Echo Canceller...Echo Canceller...Echo Canceller...Echo Canceller..." ;-D I liked the update;) Had no problems with it to. Love the LBP Theme to... ;-P
Lol Ken... Also you can play you're favorite song while playing SF4!!!!!!! 3.0 Rules!!!!!
for people whos setting is greyed out. turn off HQ mode
Excellent find, see FW 3.0 isn't as bad as everyone is making it out to be.
I dunno about all that...
lol i saw our pal morganfell in the comments, lmao
LOL, first time I read the title I thought it said GOON LINE. Not Go Online. I was thinking to myself "why are goons online anyway?", then I remember the fanboys
hmm, i found some very good divx filters on the movie player press triangle (when watching a movie) and go to Video settings you will find now some filters that really help to the quality of divx movies
This article picture should have been the new boot screen
lol are there people use the ps eye as a mic? first time heard about it
I sit about 3 metres from my tv and the mic can pik my voice up when talking at a normal volume. Beats sitting with a headset imo. The only downside is other peoples voices come through the tv speakers, so occationally you get the pleasure of hearing some one smack talk in 5.1 surround.
Disconnect your bluetooth official headset and register again for it to work.
if you getting the Echo just plug the headset right in to the ps3 not on the stand . that will do to trick, before i did it everything was super load there was ne echo.
Man i haven't had any of those problems but my friends will still echo my talking lol they've done it on purpose before tho
Talon stands for talented LMAO
I have the official ps3 headset and get irritating echos all the time this is good news (goes to settings to set the change)
