omfg Sony. I guess you people love having a 3rd place console this generation. The 100+ million sales in both PS1 and PS2 has gone to your heads.

-CROSS GAME VOICE CHAT
-PS2 BC
-FIX THE WEB BROWSER
-IMPROVE THE PLAYER CARDS SHOW GAMES WE PLAY ON THEM

Wonderful job Sony, just sit there and be satisfied with a last place console while pissing off your customers:

-Cross Game Voice Chat!
-Party features.
-Faster in game XMB.
-Ability to stream internet radio.
-Web Browser that actually works well. (WebKit based or something)
-Launch all games from Home. (like LittleBigPlanet, Socom, and all FPSs)

The PS3 has fallen behind dramatically.

Eric, will there be any fixes for PlayStation 2 games running on the CECHE01 PS3 model?

i.e: Kingdom Hearts Re-Chain of Memories, and other titles with issues.

One of these days, you’re going to need to start providing a more detailed changelog

Wow, a low post rating, angry PS3 owners… and Eric makes not one reply… Guess he is playing it smart by not doing so… I wonder if they even take these angry replies into consideration?

Sony doesn’t care about their customers…
We have user-created content oof better a looking XMB and avatars that are made in 2 days…. but it will take Sony 3 years to make.

You know the people on this blog are the funniest I’ve seen. When E3 comes they’re like YEA PS3 FTW!!! When Something that comes to improve the PS3 they’re like PS3 Sucks.

It kinda makes you realize the fake personalities. The only thing wrong with this blog post it that it doesn’t give us info.

Sony knows what we want, it will come in due time. For now Sit back, shut up and play Some EXCLUSIVE AAA games, “ONLY POSSIBLE ON THE PS3″

BAKA

Updates are always good, I hope more comes out of this than just PS format software working better but if not, ah well, at least you’re fixing some things.

I’m thinking we’re gonna need some cross-chat, custom soundtracks, and more avatars. what happened to the big updates?

The rating should be 1 but not 2.39!

Not the firmware update we were anticipating but it’s better than nothing.

@209 katsuo7171
I for one know that the updates we ask for will come in due time. However, I hate these types of updates because we as consumer need to know what exactly these firmware do to your system. Many people download these “USELESS” updates and it kill their PS3 and they have to end up paying $160 dollars to fix it if they are out of warranty. So the firmware team need to minimize these “useless” updates because you never know what it might do to your PS3. I for one had my launch 60GB PS3 get mess up with the 2.4 update.

@207

Why would they take it into consideration? It’s just a bunch of whinny people moaning..it never changes with these people.

We have in-game XMB, Trophies, Home, too many AAA games too keep up with, more games on the way, firmware updates every few months…for free..but it’s just never enough for these people. They remind me of spoilt brats at christmas time..always wanting more and not bothering to think about the work that goes into it.

People keep going on and on about things like “OMG HOW EASY WOULD IT BE TO GIVE US CROSS GAME CHAT..etc..etc” Like they have the first idea about programming, it’s so pathetic it makes me giggle.

Custom soundtracks have been here for a while, you need to blame the devs for not implementing them.

I love how ppl go on and on about all the features they think are comin with a .10 firmware upgrade. I think if it were something along those lines of a major update, they would be more descriptive. People need to relax.

Speaking of updates, now that Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is out in the United States, is an English release of Ad-Hoc Party in the works as well?

@105

You are soooo right. I understand to try to deactivate a psp or Ps3 in less than 6 months or even a year. But when I have a Ps3 or multiple PSP (yeah I had many brokens ones and one installing the update via wifi in the psp) without use in more than a year they said I have to have the number of service that I erase while ago because it was not important anymore. I even said that I had the psp with me without use to send it because it was broken but still. That’s why I didn’t bought a PSP till then.

Anyway on topic…. I guess it’s time for a mayor update, I know summer just started bust still.

+ Chaos_Bladez on June 23rd, 2009 at 6:17 pm said:

Lame… where are the features we want? It’s like you guys hear us but take ages to implement everything if anything.
Like the photo viewer thing and text chat. What the heck? No one wanted that stuff.

I used to defend you for these sorts of things but it’s taking forever to get any more good features that PSN could use.

I’m not saying I hate my PS3, I love it, but this stuff is annoying. So Sony, where are out good features?

Great job Sony!

After the Hamster Dance off in Home, I didn’t think I could be more happy! I was wrong!

/sarcasm

Cross game voice chat!
Voice mail messages!
Better player cards!

DO IT!!!!

Great. Another useless firmware update….I’m getting to used to this pattern. Something big had better come along!

Can someone let me know when the Software (emulation) will be released for PS2 compatibility. You know like the one that was already released it seemed to work well on those systems. Even if you want to make it an optional download I’m sure some people would not have a problem paying $10 bucks for it.

can the Messaging be revamped and made easier to navigate and work with ?

When i’m reading multiple messages from the same guy, i’m backed out into the friends list after reading a message. I want to be able to back into my list of messages from him after reading one of his messages.

Well, sorry to say it but the PS3 is going nowhere. I’ve waited almost three years now for Sony to beef up the PSN in ways that matter and unfortunately they have failed to deliver. I know the service is free but hey, i’d rather you charge then leave us hanging like this. Do I need Home? Nope, sure dont. Not when I cant socialize with gamers the way I can on XBOX LIVE, with ease mind you. And I can hear the other players clearly too. On PSN some games have voice some dont, some use a better codec some like warhawk dont. It’s so bad its not funny. It’s down right amateurish. I use to be a hardcore PC gamer because we had great multiplayer games, Teamspeak and Ventrillo and could chat in IM or IRC, listen to music all at the same time. At least Microsoft was paying attention!!! They drew me back into the living room..A place I havent been since I got bored with PS2!!! I regret spending 705 dollars on your console and Resistance 1 at launch when I had a 360 Pro and Gears of War at home. I will never let brand loyalty cloud my judgement like that again. You lose this generation. no question about that. But we do fall for the chance to get back up again. Good luck.

SONY,SONY.SONY. YOU GUYS NEVER FAIL TO DISAPOINT ME!!!! THE MOST POWERFUL MACHINE DONT MEAN SQUAT IF IT HAS THE WEAKEST ONLINE FEATURES THAN THE XBOX. I KNOW EVERYONE DONT PLAY ONLINE. BUT THIS IS THE NEW GENERATION OF GAMING AND ONLINE SETUP IS JUST IMPORTANT AS GRAPHICS. THIS MAKES ME SAD TO SEE SUCH A GREAT SYSTEM FALL TO A LESSER CONSOLE. REMINDS ME OF WHAT BUSH DID TO AMERICA, NOW THE THE U.S DOLLAR AINT WORTH USING AS TOILET TISSUE. SAME GOES FOR THE PS3 ONLINE!!!

I suggest you post “THIS IS BULLS**T” over and over to test out the new server.
