PS3 System Software Update v3.50 Available Soon

Eric Lempel's Avatar + Posted by Eric Lempel on Sep 20, 2010 // VP, Sony Network Entertainment

Hi everyone, as we announced previously, the PS3 system software update (v3.50) is adding support for Blu-ray 3D Disc Playback, and it will be released shortly.

Additional new features in the 3.50 update include:

  • Facebook Integration: Developers will be able to create PS3 games that have deep interaction with Facebook. Once compatible PS3 titles are available, PS3 users can choose to access their information on Facebook – including user name, profile, photos and friends list – to enhance their gameplay experience.
  • Grief Reporting Function: Users can send claim reports directly from the XMB for any inappropriate messages they receive from other PlayStation Network users. This feature is accessible from the option menu of the messages list in the FRIENDS category.

For more details and instructions on how to update the system software for the PS3 system, please visit http://www.us.playstation.com/PS3/Features/SystemUpdate.

As always, we look forward to your feedback.

NO!! BAD KITTY!

xbl gives you useless features and charges $60 for them. i much prefer having everything you need for free.

@PhillyTheCat: YLOD = Yellow Light Of Death

Basically, the equivalent to the RROD Red Ring Of Death on XBOX360. Happened to my launch model 60GB PS3 a few months ago.

@Mike0804~thanks! yeah I have seen that rrod once on a xbox. what about these early PS3 models..how are so many of them burnt out? was it a bad creation or excessive play?

@Lord_Ka1n You mean to tell me that Blu-Ray 3D compatibility that all of us will be forced to download eventhough less than 1% of PS3 owners actually own 3DTV is worth it? And adding more needless Facebook crap?

I’m sorry. I can’t sit here and listen to people brown nose Sony when it’s obvious Sony has repeatedly screwed things up this console generation and it’s obvious they don’t care what the consumers want.

Every update, the things I mentioned are always requested at one point or another (and Other OS). It’s obvious to me that those are the features the PS3 owners actually care about and want. So why should we kiss Sony’s ass when it’s blatantly obvious they don’t care about what we want. Only our money.

I personally couldn’t care less if we ever saw PS2 emulation, cross game chat, other OS, Netflix, or anything else. I’m just tired of Sony cranking out one pointless firmware update after another with more useless features that most people aren’t going to use. I’m merely calling Sony out at this point.

Let’s take a look at Playstation Blog Share … From the Top 10 most wished things, except for the Team ICO wish, non of them are coming true … Hummmm… From all the wishes from there, not even 1% are taken to account … Still no DivX HD (MKV) support, still no SkyPe, still no cross game chat …

God, stop complaining about Cross Game Chat, if its that much of an issue learn to use a cell phone or Skype. It’s not difficult. It’ll be added when its added.

I agree, with you 100%….. There are 100′s of other changes or additions that I would rather see sony working on

+ CheapestGamer on September 20th, 2010 at 9:32 pm said:

Thanks again Sony for wasting my GAMING time downloading some useless update. I don’t use my PS3 for watching Blu-Ray movies(DVD is fine enough for me).

Can we get the option to uncheck portions of these silly firmware updates we don’t want sometime soon? That would be REALLY useful.

Thanks…..for nothing….

let’s say i bought a PS3 tomorrow, what firmware will it have? will it be a PS3 that only does everything , a lot of things , or some things?? serious question! also what is “other OS?”


222

+ Lord_Ka1n on September 20th, 2010 at 9:33 pm said:

it is and it isnt. we certainly dont need it right now, but over time the prices will drop and more people will get 3dtvs.

facebook? useless? yes.

but we do not need XGC and ps2 games cant happen. right now we need netflix and other os back. then we can worry about useless trinkets like XGC.

@ philly

im not really sure, i got my ps3 after it was removed. you could install another operating system, which im assuming is just a better web browser.

It doesn’t work frankman, it started right when I installed this ******* update SONY now I’m mad

+ Deadman6699 on September 20th, 2010 at 9:36 pm said:

I always laugh at the people that say cross game chat is pointless or stupid. Maybe to some of you it is but to a lot of people it would be a well used feature. Plus if Sony did add it you do know you would have the option to use or not. If someone were to send you an invite to XGC you can always decline. Its not like your going to be forced into using it.

I have to agree with many here. I really wish Sony would hurry up and push out an update with disc-less Netflix soon. I really don’t want to pay for Xbox Live Gold anymore and hate having to pop in a disc when I want to just watch something on Netflix.

@HatmanTc (159)
There is a known issue with the discs used for the netflix application. The discs are very sensitive to light and heat causing the blue laser to leave yellow scorch marks on the data track. Just because you haven’t had the problem doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. There are recorded incedents of this happening which a simple google search would have shown you. Also, if you have used the disc for more than 200 hours, check the inside data ring of your netflix disc to see the issue for yourself. It shows up as a yellowing of the data track.

@thesniper321

You should hook your controllers up to the PS3 with a USB cable and hit the PS button to re-sync them. That may fix it.

@thesniper (231)
how many controllers do you have on? Is your psp also attached? Do you have any move controllers on? Two lights usually signify that it is the 5th controller… Just trying to trouble shoot this with you. I haven’t been able to reproduce it. I’m under the impression that you held the reset button on your controller and didn’t press the ps button again on the controller until it was plugged back into the ps3?

Can we use the grief report to report Sony for inconsistent PSN updates? I still do not understand why you guys are always so damn late. Nintendo and Microsoft seem to have no problem updating on at the same time every Monday and Wednesday.
