If the pirates wouldn’t have hacked the PS3, maybe we could get some features rather than security updates. So next time you feel like complaining about the lack of features, tell the pirates.

I like to see ALL of us PSN members get a Kick Behind (((Party System))).

This Party System Can Add People From your Friend List or Have Open Party Invite to Add People In a Window were all Can Chat Cross Game or Invite Each in a Game to Play Online togeather.

And In this Party System you have the Option to Call a Friend 1 on 1 and Chat Privately While Playing Other Games or be Playing the Same Game.

That’s a bit vague, don’t you think? “Security patch.” Does that mean wool, vinyl or acrylic?

Wow, Yazter you killed them with that comment. I wasnt too mad at this update till I thought about it like that. We ask for features and it takes forever, if it ever comes. A firmware is jailbroken and they jump to it quick.

Or in a Group of 8 Friends or non Friends to Chat About Gaming Kinda Like Video Chat But with out the Function of Video.

And In this System it would have Options to Send ANY GAME Invite to a PSN Friend to Play that game you Choose to Play Online.

When they Accpet it will Send them to your Party and in the Party Box there PSN ICON will Show up and they have the Optoin to Chat Via Text or Voice Chat.

Once in the Game the Game will use the Party System to Use as a main Source of Playing Online Gaming.

Make this happen SONY (Make.Belive)

u know what , i dont even care about new features. its just the user interface feels so dated. when ure on the ps3 everyday u get bored of the interface no matter how it looks. xbox understands this, and gives overhalls to the menus and system almost every year.

my point: scrap home, and spend the money on PSN instead.

if sony wanted to stop the hackers they should have invested time into detecting hacked ps3 s and then console banning /bricking like microsoft not this crap of everybody downloading some security update with no benefits . why does sony think so backwards instead of fighting the hackers head on. SONY WAKE THE F*** UP AND FIGURE OUT HOW TO DETECT THE JB PS3s . SONY HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THE PHRASE KEEP YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE AND YOUR ENEMIES CLOSER, ? I THINK NOT . YOU COULD HAVE BEEN CONSOLE BANNING INSTEAD of dumb security update.

I’m all for security updates but the lack of major updates is getting ridiculous. It’s pretty sad that my friend and I have to have both our PS3 and XBOX 360 on at the same time so we can cross game chat while playing Gran Turismo 5. I’d stop buying all multi-platform games for the XBOX 360 if you could give me a cross game chat but so far it’s hasn’t happened.

To the people saying that that it’s because of pirates that this is happening, and that modding of the PS3 should stop, please consider that not everyone in the community pirates games, and that those who do are just going to stick with the older firmware anyway.

A patch like this was to be expected, even if it is incredibly disappointing that they haven’t offered us any legitimate reason to perform the update.

now be like in psp, always have updates but is more easy if sony ban and delete trophies for every jailbreaked ps3

Don’t update Sony is going to brick your consoles. Every time a new update comes out it breaks something and Sony wants to take more money from you when you send your console in for repair.

You’ve been warned.

@ sir vague The hackers are giving back features sony stole and extras. Dont use that mentality *if the hackers didn’t do this , sony would have done that *because it’s NOT TRUE. What do you say about when sony forced people to choose about keeping their other os, which they used a similar mentality as yours ame was bs.By the way your id name suits you well.

If SCE is just going to continue to issue security updates and not include any features that are extremely apparent that people want with them, then in a sense, you’re encouraging the pirates and jailbreakers to keep doing what they’re doing. Seriously, you’re going to have to do better than this.

Where is the system software update that fixes the lousy Internet Browser? Most of the time that I try to use it – the PS3 freezes & I have to shutdown & restart.

You guys haven’t released an update for it in at least the past 12 months. Sony should be ashamed that the Wii’s Internet Browser works much better than the PS3′s.

i’m happy by this update because i’m just a firmware update junkie LMAO!

seriously now,sony i was hoping that you guys would just update the flash on the ps3 browser cuz right now its kind of outdated :0(

also, i wish sony would implement a reminder feauture on the ps3. lets say that your playing gran turismo 5 and you hafta watch a tv show in lets say an hour away or two.then you could set up the ps3 to remind you that said show is coming up at said time. kapich? :0)

Keep playing with us Sony

4 firmwares already and nothing worth (without mentioning that that every 7 firmwares one is worth “upgrading”)

SONY PlayStation doesn’t have ‘updates’ only ‘downgrade’
it is funny when every firmware we just get some random and minor features added that no one is requesting, and besides that, it is only 1 or 2 features added and on top of that they remove some features…
Here we go, another useless firmware, where are all the things we want? I mean I’m sure it you could do better with this new ‘downgrade’ and add at least some other features besides security and BS

What do you mean pirates hacking the PS3 ? Are you saying that they cannot do things with their own hardware (that they purchased) ? That they don’t have the right to create games for their OWN use ?

Why is it assumed that they did it for illegal purposes ?

Why is it that your number one on your Sony Blog Share which is highest rated is the one feature that is ignored and instead we get ridiculous features that not many of us are requesting? Bring on the Cross Game Chat and also bring pspgo users more games.

SONY! You’re wasting ALL of our time and money (including yours) attempting to stop those hackers! The truth is: human wits never come to an end, and you could patch, sew, and tape up everything that pops up on the hack scene and you *still* wouldn’t be able to stop the hackers. Just like the Sony team, the hack developers aren’t dumb, and will find ways to un-patch or find holes in our security attempts. I can see where this is leading. Next, people will be trying to pry open their PS3s screwing around with the internal hardware in a desperate attempt to illegal-ize their consoles. Let THEM get arrested for THEIR wrong-doings, and leave the rest of us alone and give us quality updates. I’m sure most PS3 users have never even heard of a jailbreak! I found out yesterday from doing nothing more than surfing through THIS website!

Can people stop justifying hackers? Hacking =/= illegal but it does violate the terms of service. Also no one “Owns” a ps3 you just have the right to use it to play games… much like when you buy Office you dont own the software, you own a key with the right to use it.

While I will agree the no update updates suck… its not like im really waiting on anything added on, most add ons are trivial to me. Like rating items you buy… Im also not going to say hackers dont have a reason to hack it but traditionally…

We had otherOS
We have online (free)
We have a store with many free demos
We have a DVD/bluray player
We have a machine which can boot off media servers
We have a machine which can boot from HDD/External HDD
We have a machine which can read MP3′s and all that
We have a machine which supports normal themes, even custom ones and only requires bought ones for dynamic which would end bad im sure if people could make their own.
We have region free by default.

So what exactly are they hacking it for? Bringing back otherOS, stealing games, Hacking trophies, make debug consoles… Not exactly as justifiable

“Why not show such enthusiasm for other features?”

because companies are damn stupid. I really hope they burn to the ground once they start straying from providing and just go after pirates the whole time. You give ppl what they want and they will give you their damn money. Waste resources trying to stop hacks and let features lax and you will suffer.

“If the pirates wouldn’t have hacked the PS3, maybe we could get some features rather than security updates. So next time you feel like complaining about the lack of features, tell the pirates.”

its not the pirates fault. They don’t run sony and are not responsible for sony not realizing what’s important. Not pleasing legitimate customers (or making their time with the product hard) just to stop a few pirates is moronic. Suppose i brick my ps3 during the update? what then? I wasn’t going to hack it, but it still got snuffed by sony.

There are a lot of things they are hacking it for. Closed systems are never fun and the ps3 can’t do a lot that people want of it. NOW even otherOS is another reason people are hacking the system. THey are trying to put it back into the ps3. They have gotten emulators for older games to work and are even working on Wii emulators, they can improve the media playback of the ps3 beyond what sony is willing to do or will bother to do. I really think the first console that comes out allowing huge modification will bury the competition easy
