PS3 Firmware (v2.76) Update

Eric Lempel's Avatar + Posted by Eric Lempel on May 13, 2009 // VP, Sony Network Entertainment

Hello, I just wanted to provide everyone with a head’s up that the next PLAYSTATION 3 system software update (v.2.76) will be coming soon. This is a minor update that improves the playback quality of some PS3 format software.

I’m starting to believe that the PS3 cant do some stuff. For example: Cross game voice chat!

Wonderful job Sony. I can’t download the stupid f-ing update on my PS3 it just errors, and I can’t download it on your stupid site because all it has is 2.70, so now I can’t play games online tonight. Thanks a ton with another garbage firmware update

I want an update for Ps3 so that we can do our work as well as play. i mean can’t we have something like XP. Sony corporation should make its own window where all softwares can run. if it is not possible then atleast there should be an update which allow us to open word documents and all. I always wish to store my important documents somewhere safe but on ps3 there is no option to save this format.!!!!! Sony corporation should look into the matter…

These small updates are nice and all, but why can’t Sony just fix all the backward compatibility issues? (The lackluster PS1 support and the nonexistent PS2 support.)

This is lame. I came home from work ready to play Socom and this system update appears. It goes about half-way then I get booted. I’ve been trying to DL since 8:30 pm EST. It’s midnight and I still haven’t been able to DL it and I can’t go online to play Madden or anything….WTF?

Yay, another update with no changelog. C’mon guys, full change log… every time. It makes people so much less frustrated.

Cross chat would be nice.. but maybe after E3. I would like to see a custom Avatar option. so at lease let you upload your own.

PS2 SOFTWARE EMULATION PLEASE!! Hell, I’d pay $40 or $50 to add it, but we shouldn’t have to. The system would sell better with this included in every SKU anyway.


261

+ IWGP123 on May 13th, 2009 at 9:06 pm said:

Yeah, Maybe the PS3 just cannot play music while in-game or cross-game chat. Too bad.

Thanks for this update though.

This is kind of a late response, then I’m done with this thread…

RevolutionBlues – I also saw no point in the photo application, but I know a lot of people actually use Life with Playstation. I’m currently ranked at 91,876 out of 1,234,513 so that tells you roughly about how many individuals are taking part. Also, if anyone would like to contribute to my Carcinoid cancer team it’s 164414. Thanks

smokiemcdougle – Actually, many people forked over more cash for the PS3 opposed to the 360 because of promised features by Sony that we have yet to see. It’s not immature or child-like to rant and complain when there’s a real reason behind it. Some features Sony promised at launch or soon after were features that we have not gotten yet, therefore it is very understandable that people are upset.

Anybody else having trouble signing on to the Playstation network and going online because of this Update??? Any suggestions, I can’t be up too much longer messing with this. Is there any way around this? I’m trying to go online……

When pressing the PS button, you get the battery icon over the time. Move the battery icon somewhere else! ;)

@LIFEFORHIRE, I’ve been getting that same error all night. I’m trying to find out a solution also. I couldn’t go on since 8:30pm EST. It wouldn’t have been too bad if they had it on the PS site for Download. But the only update is 2.70. This is wack!


272

+ Jeigh on May 13th, 2009 at 9:25 pm said:

I really wouldn’t care about the fact that this update has basically nothing to offer if it weren’t for the fact that with every update, I’m gambling my hard drive. Since the very early days, I’ve heard of people’s files getting messed up, but until recently I’d never experienced it. With such an issue now very real for me, pointless updates will always receive my harshest criticism.

Time to make this minor crap optional until a truly significant update comes along so that it can be packaged with that.

+ rainMaker347 on May 13th, 2009 at 9:26 pm said:

if developing the cross game voice chat is expensive or the 360 patent problem is making it difficult to implement, use skype. Its free and we can communicate with anyone with the skype software. Will be much better than xbox live. Don’t have to be unique with the features. You just have to be better.

Everyone of us hope so…

Yea the Last Major Update my system Wrecked but Support was easy to handle and sent me a new one and I have been at this update for a few hours now…and i was just curious if it was me…Tiring stuff i tell you…


276

+ ImMetch on May 13th, 2009 at 9:28 pm said:

Minor update? I’m pissed. I’ve been trying to get on for 4 hours. This is F-ing wack.


277

+ LIFEFORHIRE on May 13th, 2009 at 9:28 pm said:

so doug did yours complete?


278

+ zyxses on May 13th, 2009 at 9:28 pm said:

For the love of God, just update and fix the browser. My Nintendo DSi has BETTER overal website compatibility! Try accessing YouTube mail or settings with the PS3 browser – you cant!


279

+ SebastianF on May 13th, 2009 at 9:29 pm said:

This download fails at some point every time. ..with no update I can’t sign in and play online. They don’t even have the latest update on the PS3 site so I can use storage media to update. These minor updates should not be forced on us to sign in. What a joke.


280

+ LIFEFORHIRE on May 13th, 2009 at 9:29 pm said:

I have been at it for about 4 hours Also,…I am a bit on the angry side they better fix this and my system better not get messed up again..


281

+ Jeigh on May 13th, 2009 at 9:30 pm said:

@286

Completely agreed. If they wanted the feature, they should’ve jumped on when they had the chance. The true supporters actually got the upper-hand for once and those who sat on the bench did so to their own detriment. Certainly not something 360 owners can say.


282

+ LIFEFORHIRE on May 13th, 2009 at 9:31 pm said:

Yea this is kinda a load of bull they should test this stuff b4 sending it out…

+ TakiFuGu on May 13th, 2009 at 9:32 pm said:

This is one of the most important features that you guys need to add to PSN.

– Universal Game Invites and Join Session Button(XMB)

It’s a total pain in butt see how every single game invite/join are different. I play with friends and family. Every new game is total chaos figuring out how to join each others game. We need a unified system.


284

+ LIFEFORHIRE on May 13th, 2009 at 9:33 pm said:

@302 I Totally agree I hat going and trying to figure out how to join especially with ppl with limited time like my brother in the Army…

Why is it that my cousin hasn’t been on since the last time I was on and it didn’t require him to update his system. He’s online playing Socom right now. Was it just for some PS3 systems and not all of them??


286

+ tosun01 on May 13th, 2009 at 9:34 pm said:

Nothing could be more annoying in the world thann getting home, after a hard day work, hoping to play some videogame peacefully, starting the ps3 and bang…. another useless firmware update.
Come on guys, gather all these minor fixes into one real package before releasing. It suckes having to update every week just for nothing.


287

+ LIFEFORHIRE on May 13th, 2009 at 9:35 pm said:

@ 304
It is still bull how we have to sit here and wait for them to fix this it should work the first time or not put it up at all


288

+ bob4900 on May 13th, 2009 at 9:36 pm said:

bring in music in the background with game play

@305 last update was 6 weeks ago.


290

+ LIFEFORHIRE on May 13th, 2009 at 9:38 pm said:

@308
Does it really matter when the last update was..this one should still work the first time for everyone.


291

+ SebastianF on May 13th, 2009 at 9:39 pm said:

I see ps3news.com has the 2.76 update for download. It seems strange they have it up but the Playstation site doesn’t. I wonder if it would be a risky move trying it?


292

Uh yah why dont you make it available on the web download page lol u guys always lag on that!!

+ aranben1 on May 13th, 2009 at 9:41 pm said:

Worst part of owning a Playstation 3. Large mandatory firmware updates with features nobody ever cares about, and a chance of bricking your system if anything goes wrong during the installation process.

Yay! Firmware update!! :)

That’s why I still used my 60G PS3.

Why do they make these firmware updates mandatory for online continuation? A total waste of 5 minutes of gaming! LOL
