Firmware v2.01 Coming Soon

Eric Lempel's Avatar Posted by Eric Lempel on Nov 16, 2007 // SVP, PlayStation Network

Hey everyone. We know you like to hear about updates a few days in advance, so here’s a quick heads up that we have a new System Software update in the works.

Firmware v2.01 is a minor update that will improve the stability of PLAYSTATION 3.

We’ll provide more specifics as the update is about to go live, but we thought we’d give loyal blog readers advance notice!

Those STUPID post about INGAMEXMB are really annoying STOP it already!!!
You people made your point just wait for it ok?!
Don’t tell me you people bought the PS3 just for to play a game and listen to music at the same time?!

Anyway…could the next update put the clock in PS3 HOME menu while playing a game like the PSP? It’s just that some days I have to work and while I’m on lunch I play a little and sometimes I lose track of the time… : )

ERIC!

Please help us fix these horrible crashes and restarts since 2.0!!!

I can hardly play any games anymore, let alone surf the net anymore!

I love my PS3, and this scares me! My baby is convulsing!

I just got Assassins’s Creed, and I can’t play it for more than 5 minutes without the system restarting!!

Also, the Ps2 game upscaler is not working anymore, and games look horrible!

thanks for any help! Tomorrow is the PS3 anniversary, and mine can’t even play games! AHH!

Sorry for spaming, but we really need VPN connectivity

@blizzard182

I understand your confuse. Yes, almost 30% of East Europe computers connect to Internet through VPN in their local network. It’s PPTP connection.

Google word “PPTP” and you’ll understand how it works. It’s safer then PPPoE or ADSL.

To you people saying the PS3 needs VPN support, this blog is by SCEA. I think you need to tell SCEE about that. I doubt many US PS3 gamers use VPN.

@brianC6234

what you think the Firmware updates are just for AMERICA??????


125

+ BrianC6234 on November 16th, 2007 at 8:41 pm said:

No but SCEA isn’t going to add VPN support. Nobody in the US uses it for their Internet connection. So tell SCEE. Maybe they can get it done.

@ #109 saunderswan
Yeah I know that’s there, but (as far as I know) it only affects a USB mouse, not the Sixaxis. I could be wrong though, I’ll have to check it out.
Anyway, thanks for the answer.

I’m a proud owner of a PS3 and I would like to tell Sony guys that they are doing a great job. And to answer owers that are asking for divx or xmb in-game… well I think they got the point, so stop all this annoyance and just do as a I do, enjoy each new firmware update as a chrismas gift. Some thime they are awesome (like a PS3), sometime they are more “useful” (like a new electric raser… not very fun, but usefull :)

But as other said, this is just a X.01 update, so it will be probably transparent for most of us.

Hopefully, the problems with PS2 backwards compatibility for a lot of games is fixed on the 80gb. Lots of new problems such as Gran Turismo 4 not even playing popped up with 2.0.

+ BrianC6234 on November 16th, 2007 at 9:00 pm said:

Saunderswan – SCEA isn’t going to do anything about VPN support in the updates. The US doesn’t use it. Why should they do it? Tell SCEE. Isn’t there a way to tell them what you want? If you look at the address of this site it says blog.us.playstation.com. The last time I checked that meant SCEA. Let SCEE know you’re upset. They’re the ones who should be getting you the features you need. The parent company is SCEI. The US has SCEA. Europe has SCEE.

+ saunderswan on November 16th, 2007 at 9:00 pm said:

@thingg

i was correct with my first statement it does affect the sixaxis also :D


139

+ thingg on November 16th, 2007 at 9:01 pm said:

Ok, she got off and I just checked the mouse speed thing. It doesn’t affect the Sixaxis “mouse” speed, or, if it does, not very much. (I’m thinking any affect might be an optical illusion.) Also, that option is under acessory settings so I doubt

Let’s get 1080i support for all games past and future. Not all of us have televisions that support 720p. 1080i is supported by all HD sets.


143

+ thingg on November 16th, 2007 at 9:11 pm said:

(hehheh…. wrong button….)
So yeah, what I was going to say is, (after trying it again) yeah it DOES affect it, but the “fast” speed is still too slow to be navigating a 30″ website.
Anyways, thanks for the comment (and testing; I didn’t know it affected the Sixaxis at all because it was under accessory settings)) and I will be setting the mouse speed to fast now.
I’m thinking that we’d better stop using this as an instant messaging service.

@ everyone
sorry about all the off topic comments

@Sony I would still appreciate a greater range of speeds for the Sixaxis mouse in the browser


144

+ BrianC6234 on November 16th, 2007 at 9:13 pm said:

I only posted an answer to you because you started it. I said don’t bother posting a feature Europe only wants on the US blog. That’s what SCEE is for. We don’t use VPN here. I don’t see where that’s a problem. If it’s a feature the whole world can use then fine. That feature isn’t. Let SCEE know you want it.

By the way, are you the one who runs this blog or something? You act like it.

@ 5..

I agree 100%. Sony is doing a wonderful job. I will ALWAYS support Sony, and you will never see the XBOX is my house. As far as all the firmwares and nobody seems to be happy with them, I am…. I understand that it takes tremendous amount of time to do just one Firmware update and try to implement whats viable vs what everyone wants. Everyone, please give the developers some slack, they are working long hours to do what they can to continue keeping our PS3’s running with little to no problems. I know that there is great time in writing one piece of code for one small thing to happen. I am going to school for game design and would LOVE to eventually be part of the Sony team.

Give these guys some time, they are listening, everything can not come at once.
