Also, I’m at 25%. The download is going slow but I have a feeling that’s due to my internet connection. I have no doubt it’s going to finish.

oh cheeseus…Can you sneak in some functionality with these? If you’re going to have a pissing contest with hackers at least do it behind closed doors.

Xoombie… what a ridiculous rationale for ripping off games. Most of the people who are pirating or using pirated software most likely never even used “other os”.

xBURROx, Sony will never let go of their “FREE ONLINE” card

they already get millions from PSN+ anyways and are still holding

that “FREE ONLINE” card.

hey, so i was having a trouble syncing my trophies about 3hrs ago, A error has occurred (80022D05) keeps coming up..after trying to sync many times still said that, so i decided to try some games and some games didn’t work like UNO, Sonic4, Zen PinBall, Critter Crunch, and rag doll kung fu…i even ask some friends if they had the same problem and they said they didn’t notice…then i saw that there was a update that was announced about a half hour ago, i downloaded that and im still having the same problem, I love my PS3 and stuff like this always worries me so if you could replay with some help it be appreciated

Sad thing is that the dishonest people are the only ones that can get on psn right now. :(

I built a website from my ps3 and have shocked many of my computer nerd friends with what it can do. So the complainers should quit whining. I hope these patches cure some of the hack issues in the bbc community.

Man I wish they could an absolute patch for this. I mean either hire, or by lawsuit force the hackes to fix it, lol

It’s a jump from FW 3.55 to 3.56…Dont expect anymore than a Security Patch.

“Thx again stupide hackers to make us our life more expensive and hard.”

technically it’s sony trying to make something 100% hack proof, which is impossible really, one side has to give.

also, that was the single most stupide thing I’ve ever read.

where’s the guy with the popcorn???

+ The_Spleen on January 26th, 2011 at 6:52 pm said:

It took an hour and 22 attempts, but it finally went through. Once it cleared 30% it flew for me. Good luck everyone!

I rarely play disk based games, and spend most of my time in PS Home. I am addicted to the Bowling Alley and play pool often. Fix the freekin pool table glitches. Didn’t take too long to DL update.

Count me in. Gets to 15% and fails. The version on the Sony site is still 3.55, so I can’t get it there, either.

Where can I download this via PC?! This is taking a lifetime to update!!!

Whaaaaaa security updates….whaaaaaa…… 5 minutes and it’s done. No problems. Over Wifi to boot. You wankers are just looking for something to cry about.

Is anybody getting error messages when you try to download it?


177

+ RainbowTurtles on January 26th, 2011 at 6:54 pm said:

wow, all sony ever achieves is making hackers more mad. We are going to find a way around this and we will embarrass you once again. Why don’t you just give up? What is so bad about people hacking your system? Sure it’s embarrassing, but it’s more embarrassing to have it hacked multiple times.

Taking me forever to download it

Seriously, when sony does a feature update I only see added junkware and no improvements in the os’s ui and usability. I know, I know – I’m the only one that still uses a computer to edit videos, look at photos, browse the internet, stream music on pandora, and watch movies on netflix…

Thanks.
I don’t care what anyone says, I hope they can fight these stupid hackers and win.
I bet only 1% of hackers are doing so to mod a system for personal use that does not involve cheating or piracy.
Look at CODModern Warfare 2, that game was ruined by hackers.

People hack to cheat and troll. Or to steal.
The 1% who does otherwise would not be sharing their methods to ruin it for everyone else.
If they don’t like Sony, then it’s simple, they need to go play something else.
There is no excuse for those deadbeats.

Another USELESS update from sony except this time its TWICE IN A ROW, when are we gonna get decent features? when are you going to optimize the ps3 netcode for psn? when are you going to implement all the features people want?

I hear sony say: *NOTHING*

I hear Hackers say: Right now here you go, here is a lot of nice homebrew and features, here is more access to the console you payed £425 for on first release that you had to send back cos sonys other update YLOD it for you!

OK Sony… You reaaaally SUCKS!
Stop Fighting piracy, and work to make a good product!!!
I´m shame of buy the MOVE Controller… The games are really bad. And I saw the comercial on TV, and is really sad to know that THE ONLY GAMES FOR MOTION ARE THE 5 GAMES ON THE TV !!
And now, another update…for nothing.
GeoHot rules!
I hope someone find the way to bypass the PSN control, so all we can forget this stupids updates.
