Firmware (v2.35) Coming Soon

Eric Lempel's Avatar + Posted by Eric Lempel on May 14, 2008 // VP, Sony Network Entertainment

I just wanted to give everyone a quick heads up that a PS3 firmware update (v2.35) will be released shortly. This is a relatively minor update to improve stability of some PS3 titles.

When are the updates going to become patches rather than full downloads? Xbox 360 downloads are quick and simple – none of this waiting 20 minutes to download, needing to use a game controller to flip through license screens, agree to the license again, then wait another 5 minutes for the update to be applied and reboot. Xbox takes less than 5 minutes for the download, auto apply and reboot.

And why can’t we use the Bluetooth remote instead of the game controller? I only bought the PS3 as a Blu-ray system and leave the game remote in the closet, thus have to dig to find the controller everytime I update the system which is required fair for Blu-ray functionality.

Some really cool things to see add in a future update:

#1- The XMB (or at least the messages section) available while playing a game via either the pause function or the PS button

#2- Append colors to the XMB for the time of day instead of those default colors that are pretty ugly!

#3- HOME!!! We need the final version soon or we’ll start to loose hope

#4- More codecs for the AVI’s, MPEG’s, MOV’s, MP4′s and MKV’s video files

#5- PSN cards support in Canada and US

#6- A simple gadget in the Folding@home software that enables you to see how many core’s (from the 8 available) are processing the data (and maybe the possibility to run it in power saver mode and make the PS3 run a little cooler)

Well, with those updates, I would be one happy little camper! Hope I am not alone with those ideas running in the back of my head.

At least on my system (60gb launch), the new update broke the full-screen feature on Youtube videos in the web browser. When you click on the full-screen button, all it does is make the video screen turn black and stop playback, without opening the full-screen view.

Hey, do you guys actually program requests we have into firmware updates? If so what i’d like to see is:

I just bought a bluetooth headset w/full headphones (plantronics 590) and was hoping there would be some way to route all audio through the bluetooth so that I can use them as headphones for mp3′s, movies, etc. And audio won’t play through the tv, or amp. when in i guess ‘headphone’ mode. Thanks!

Please can you fix the AAC track ID problem, when using itunes AAC music files. Why is it possible to play these and view their tags on my PSP and not on my PS3? On the PSP they work like a dream with album art and all track info, on the PS3 you get jibber jabber?

Would also be good to have the ability to subscribe to RSS Feeds – Works on the PSP, why not on the PS3?

Also the PS3 is perfect for Internet radio, just implement it in a much smoother way than it is on the PSP.

Keep up the good work, we’re all nearly there! Oh yeh, one other little thing!

Well, I don’t see any difference with the update, whatever it’s just a small update, It doesn’t matter.

I only wish you could bring those 2 things on PS3 :

- MKV support
- x264 codec support

That would be great.

Please create a section on the site where we can post our ideas on improving firmware updates, I think this would be a lot easier to keep track of then scanning through 100-500 or so comments.

Personally I’d love to see:
1. In Game XMB (The FULL Deal where everything works seamlessly, and doesn’t cut off music when going to settings, Store, or internet, especially)
2. Skype and Radio (the PSP has both of these so shouldn’t be a problem
3. More media (soundtracks, Tv shows, movies)
4. Store customization and more XMB customization (more colors, icon arrangement, opening music, Theme creation from the PS3)
5. Dashboard (has Sports, News, Weather,an updated Information Board/PS News, calculator, conversions. Basically like any other customizable page like iGoogle or Apple’s Dashboard)

That’s sound’s like the ultimate Dashboard update.But I would also like to upgrade the flash player on the PS3 somehow.

could sony please offer development notes about the PS3′s DLNA implementation?

because getting divx streaming and some other formats to stream isn’t as easy to solve as i and many other people find easy.

In XMB when you play MP3, Divx, etc the audio output it’s set allways to your audio configuration.

These have a problem. If you are playing a 2 CH mp3, and the Playstation output it’s set to 5.1 for example, the AV receiver don’t process the sound because it receive a 5.1 output.

The audio output configuration should be as the audio output file to process the sound correctly.

My Mac can play DVDs that have embedded closed captioning in the video stream. I was going to buy a PS3 but now I can’t play my old DVDs because I don’t hear well. Millions of baby boomer customers. Millions of hearing impaired people. Makes economic sense to pursue putting this capability into the PS3. Thanks for your time and consideration.

If you go to your settings column on the Cross Media Bar, there will be an option to update system software. If you are connected to the internet, it’s a simple process of downloading the update and the PS3 will automatically take care of the rest.
