I was gaming last night. At midnight I tried to jump into a Resistance 2 game. All of a sudden I noticed I was logged off the PSN and I was being told that, in order to play online, I was going to have to install the update. Really bummed me out to have to sit through the install. It went fairly quick, though and I got a chance to play some games.

@dragn142298

The PS2 download you speak of is ONLY FOR PS2 THAT SUPPORT ONLINE USE (Final Fantasy 11 and a few others that don’t come to mind). Not being able to play PS2 games on your PS3 is dependent on what version of the system you have. I have the launch 60 gig (upgraded to a 500 gig) meaning all the original launch units can play PS2 games you may have kept, otherwise you’re out of luck… I’m not sure when the backwards compatibility stopped being implemented, but if it wasn’t in the 2ed wave of units released, then it’s only in the 1st.

Sounds Great. One thing though, I have been a PS3 from the very first year of its release. I have been waiting for a long VERY LONG time to have my PS3 password protected. I thought this would be something which would have been released a long long long time ago. These other updates are nice, but i think that they should be set aside to give room for work on password protected user accounts on the PS3, and also making user files private.

PS3. When are we going to be able to play music during the game like Xbox. Also when are u going to have free old games available for download in the playstation store.Why must everything cost in ps3 home even cloths.

Karaoke for the DVD player application would be nice. Just needed a simple mixing tool for the right voice level. Could be an upgrade for SingStar owners only.

How about something in the store that can tell you if you’ve already bought something even on another account. This is atleast useful.

- In game voice chat.
– Fix the controller battery status and the time view.
– Browser acces during the game
– Better audio/video codec support ( divx with .srt support, AAC, mkv etc.)
– Better trophy view in friend list (level progress etc.)
– Thumbnail view of video’s
– Much faster browser ( modified ”Firefox 3” or a ”Webkit” based engine for example) with much more plug in support (Quicktime etc.)
– Back up the entire Savedata map (now you must copy/back up savefiles one by one)
– Faster load time of the XMB in a game.
– Auto sync of trophies in the background.
If only the half of the list will be added in the near future…..I’ll be happy

Sony continues to disappoint. The long list of features still missing on the ps3 should have been included at launch when we shelled out $500. Sony continues to fail over and over with these meaningless updates.

The blog post really does not indicate anything about what the update does. That makes it impossible to say if the update is “worth it” or not. Better communication would be nice.

Feature request:

Please add support for Quicktime (MOV) files to the PS3. It plays almost anything that’s out there, except MOV. It’s annoying having to convert all the MOVs to play them on the PS3, while everything else seems to work straight out of the box.

Thanks!

How about Sony doing something meaningful and solve the issues that cause error 80010514 (the equivalent of the Xbox Red Ring of Death). I thought only Microsoft sold defective hardware, but I was mistaken. It many of the PS3s brake soon after one year. I did some research and many people have this problem. If you are not under warranty, you will have to pay 160 dollars to get it fixed. What a rip off. Get this fixed Sony!!!!

How about an update for FPS games that allow you useage of keyboard and mouse on the game. Don’t say it’s something the maker of the game has to enable I personally know it can be done from both ends. If PS3 will allow a program that maps the controller functions to the keyboard and mouse it will work as well. If you want to gain the market from pc gamers this is the first step.

man another meaningless update…i’ve been a ps3 owner since 12-28-06 and yes i do recognize that the ps3 gas come a long way in terms of updates and functionality. i remember how horrible the pre-in game xmb days were.

i could never go back to that, having said that sony still needs to step it up many many notches…us ps3 owners are complaining and moaning about features that the competiton has had since DAY 1…(day 1 for them started in late 2005)…+
