PlayStation 3 Firmware (v3.10) Update Preview

Eric Lempel's Avatar + Posted by Eric Lempel on Nov 16, 2009 // VP, Sony Network Entertainment

Hi everyone, here’s an early peek at PlayStation 3 (PS3) firmware update (v3.10). The latest update incorporates Facebook into the PS3 experience. By linking your PlayStation Network account to your Facebook account, you will have the option for the PS3 to automatically update your Facebook News Feed with Trophy and PlayStation Store activity. This update also enables developers to set specific criteria in their titles to publish additional game information to your News Feed. You can then check out your updates, and those of your friends, on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media favorites through the PS3′s built-in web browser.

This is just the beginning of our integration with Facebook and we are looking forward to adding new features enhancing the experience in future updates.

Additional highlights from update 3.10 include:

  • The Photo category on the XMB has been revamped to make it easier to see more of your photos stored on the PS3.
  • The PSN Friends List has been modified based on feedback we received after update 3.00. Additionally, you can now choose a color for your PSN ID on the XMB.

To get a preview of what’s coming in update 3.10, check out the video below:

We’re looking forward to releasing firmware update 3.10 soon. As always, we appreciate your feedback.

I would create another account if it wasn’t for the fact that all of my purchases, friends, and 512 trophies. You f***ing bastards need to think before you come out with an update. This isn’t the last u’ll hear of me.

3.10 Borked my PS3- Bluray movies play for 30 min and then freeze. Games (Borderlands) play ok, but lack of BluRay playback is truly annoying. Fix now, please or I go back to Microsoft.
And change slogan to “It Does Almost Everything. Usually.”

I have an original 60gb model that hasn’t given me any problems until I upgraded the firmware to 3.1. Now my games(Madden 10, Unchartered 2) freeze all the time. Even when I try to quit a frozen game, I get the “quit game” screen with the controller options black screen, it freezes at that point, not allowing me to choose anything. After waiting a few minutes and nothing happening, I turn off the main power switch, power on again & get the error notification message. I’ve sent about 10 notices to SONY so far. I wish they would come out with a fix, a patch or something.

The facebook thing is nice.I would like it if they could make an update where we could put more avatars for our account picture cause I really dont like the once that are avilable.It dose`nt have to be costume ones but atleaste put new once on the playstation store so we could download them and put them there.I really want one of batman but there are`nt any.

Nice updates. I would like to see one feature added – split into two, to be precise. Namely, my audio receiver (Sony HT-SS360) has no Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD MA decoder. Therefore, I need to switch BD/DVD audio to Linear PCM under Video Settings each time I want to watch a BD movie. When I want to watch a DVD, I have to switch it back to Bitstream in order to use MV-DCS sound field on my receiver (it does not support sound fields on Linear PCM input). So, long story short, could the dev team split BD/DVD audio into BD and DVD settings separately in the next firmware release?

Thanks!

The most powerful gaming console on the market and you give us Facebook….

(Smashes head on keyboard)

It would be nice if we could have (INGAME CROSS CHAT) so we can play with our mates without getting abuse from other PS3 users.

(Skype) would be nice to have as a (INGAME CROSS CHAT) program, you have it on the PSP so please can we have it on the PS3. I would happy to pay for it if you put it on the download section.

(INGAME CROSS CHAT) (please!!!!)

Future update suggestions:

Trophy Delete!!!

Toggle for friend notifications during video playback 

Leave audio messages for friends 

Better on-screen keyboard (replicate the Danzeff OSK found here: http://pspupdates.qj.net/index.php?pg=49&aid=23876)

Reorder downloads in download manager

Delete Internet search history

More video shortcuts via controller (L3 & R3 = Skip forward & Skip back)

Toggle to default all system dialogues to “Yes” not “No” (aka “Quit Game”). And move “Delete Complete” and “Install Complete” to a upper corner notifier, instead of having to press circle to go back to XMB. 

Ability to easily add files to a album grouping in XMB… annoying having to type in album title to each individual file

The browser should auto-zoom the text field when entering data.

When your deep in XMB menus (especially on media server directories) holding left should back you out of the subdirectories to the root xmb category and stop there.

How about applying the picture browsing update for when one browses pictures on a media server as well, instead of just local folders only?

How about doing this for videos also?

This is cool, but I’d like to have upgrades for the browser. I wanted to stream windows media video from a website, but the current browser doesn’t support this plug in. I heard about some rumor about Firefox being ported to PS3. I hope this is true.

Hello Eric Lempel, just wanted to let you know I think you’ve been doing a great job with our updates. As we all know you are working hard to give us the things we want, waiting patiently on the Voice chat. I was curious, hopefully you’ll respond to this post, are you able to give us an install option to our HDD’s for our games? Not to run the games without discs, but to have them partially loaded to our HDD’s. For example, Modern 2 has been hitting Blu-ray drives harshly, I believe because of Infinity Wards texture streaming. So the game, while playing online maps mostly, the game seems to utilize the disc way too much. It would be nice to have those online maps installed on the Harddrive as an option. I, and many, wouldn’t mind replacing a HDD if something went wrong, but a Blu-ray drive would crush our little hearts. Is this something Sony could do or does Infinity Ward have to give us a patch to make this possible? If it has to be done on Infinity Ward’s side of programming, could you tell them to do it for us please? A response from you would be highly appreciated. And again thank you for giving us all the great features to put our PS3′s in front of the so-called “Console War”.

+ CheapestGamer on November 30th, 2009 at 6:56 pm said:

What’s even more hilarious is how if something is a function on the 360 or Wii it’s ‘kiddy’ or ‘laughable’, but as soon as the POS 3 gets it it’s ‘zomg innovative’.

Stop trying to copy the companies that are kicking you around like a red headed stepchild this gen, Sony.

Imitation may the sincerest form of flattery, but it looks like you’re just playing catch up to the competition.

Does anyone else experience an error when trying to synch trophies after updating to this firmware? It usually happens with me when the load time reaches about 80 percent. I know I can’t be the only one.

+ CheapestGamer on November 30th, 2009 at 8:51 pm said:

That’s another one of the issues the new FW created, YellowBoy. We all need to start bugging the hell out of the people at Sony until they FIX this with a patch.

Nice update, I cant wait to see what the future has in stored for the integration with facebook. Hopefully there will be better support for Facebook on the ps3′s browser in later updates.
Suggestions for Later:

Like the photo update, something similar for the the Games Section. Like creating folders or simply separating the demo’s from Down Loaded games.

-The ability to appear offline.
-A memory manager would do wonders.
-The ability to listen to your own tracks while browsing through the psn store.
-Also a way to categorize friends

Overall, I have to say im very satisfied with this system and feel like every penny spent towards it was well worth it! Great Job and can’t wait to see what the future has in-stored!

lucky for me i just bought a refurbished ps3 (80gb backward comp)from a co. that has a 90 day return policy. and yes, i too am a victim of the 3.10 firmware update. the system did play games prior to me updating the firmware. after the update, my games will freeze 3-5 mins in or it won’t load at all and had a couple of error msgs. i wonder if this was sony’s attempt to sabotage what’s left of the old systems and force us to buy into the newer and lower quality slim version. we’ll never know. i feel sorry for the gamers who’s warranty has expired through sony. by the way, one of the customer rep from the co. i bought from said they had a majority of their systems returned. they said one of the system tested the motherboard was jacked up! i’ll be letting this co. deal with sony. i’ll be also looking forward to see how many systems i can jack up and keep returning until i get an indestructible unit! hopefully sony will get their act together and hire competent programmers or their stock will continue to fall!

FIX THE CONTROLLER SYNC ISSUES, SONY!!!! Stop adding so much garbage to the XMB with these updates. Allow us to get on PSN without having to be forced to download these updates before we know whether or not they’re going to mess up our systems in one way or another.

I’ll be posting this at least once a day and I’ll be escalating it to once an hour until I see an actual response from you idiots.

NOW FIX THE DAMNED CONTROLLER ISSUES FOR THOSE OF US WHO ONLY GOT THEM AFTER YOUR STUPID FRICKIN’ UPDATE!!!!!

Get the code monkeys working on a solution already, as this having to re-sync the controllers every so many days is getting old.
