Sony, I’m sorry but hackers will never stop… I’ll give the hackers a week so they can hack the PS3 again, and then you are going to make us download another minor update?

I just bought my PS3. As in, about an hour and a half ago. I came home and updated to 3.55. That I expected. Then the update to 3.56 came out, and I thought no big deal.

I have been trying to update to 3.56 for almost 2 hours. It keeps failing (gets between 20-40 and dies). I spent $400 (bought the Move version) and I can’t use this @%$@# thing. My Xbox 360 works perfectly, of course, and did right out of the box.

Is this the kind of service/support/failure I can expect from Sony in the future?

i cant get passed 20%.. i have a normal ps3 no burnt games its not modded or anything stupid sony i remember when i first got it last year had the same problem with a different update cant remember wat one though.

Oh?!

Finally a firmware update for the PS3? I guess they’re trying to play cat-n-mouse with these hackers.

=P

I don’t support video game piracy at all, neither does GeoHotz. He even said that his “work” isn’t for playing pirated games.

Anyway, hopefully this will at least make it harder and harder for these obvious hackers that are hacking and cheating their way through getting all the trophies and making everyone’s experience playing games online miserable.

I read that Call of Duty Black Ops is one of the recent games that have a big time issue with hackers yet Trearch isn’t doing anything about it. Maybe it’s time for Sony to step him and give that guy the ban hammer.

=D

Error.. wth ??????

I dunno about you guys, but I was able to update seamlessly without any difficulties.

You could download it through their Sony’s Site and just put it on a USB drive and install it that way.

I also hear people with Jailbroken/cfw PS3s are having difficulties.

I like the Security updates.. Dam moders/hackers/other no life like individuals like that just need to just go out and get a real job.

Keep up the good work and PLEASE release a NEW FEATURE Update. Like Cross Game Chat would be REALLY nice.. Just talked a XBOX Only person to Sell his XBOX and become a Brother of PLAYSTATION. Sucks when you say “yeah PS3 doesn’t have Cross game chat like Xbox does” IT HURTS SONY IT HURTS!!

Anyway Keep up the good work.

This is me hoping Sony can find a way to block all the gaming pirates that are going to try and pirate the hell out of the PS3. Homebrew sure, piracy, I don’t think so.

WE DONT WANT SECURITY PATCH”S
Please give us something else…
I am sick of these security patch’s that add’s nothing new.


232

+ pvwr on January 26th, 2011 at 7:10 pm said:

Again? When will you guys give us something useful, such as MKV playback? Even crappy DVD and BluRay players can do it, why not a powerhouse as the PS3? It standard for many years, and yet, the PS3 lacks support.

error 80710723 on uptade v.3.56 stoped at 48%. I would like to have some explanation…

+ clupula668 on January 26th, 2011 at 7:10 pm said:

I hope that everyone here who says anything positive about the hackers finds their IP and their account banned. Remember when we used to get all sorts of features with each update and they were something to look forward to? Then that smug moron, GeoHot hacked the system through the OtherOS, and now look what we get. I don’t blame Sony for this. I blame the hackers. They’ve ruined it for everyone.

+ Wrigley_Chill on January 26th, 2011 at 7:11 pm said:

That’s one way to provide better security. Prevent users from downloading the entire patch!


236

+ Toshi_TNE on January 26th, 2011 at 7:11 pm said:

HEHE, just checked PSX-scene. Hackers updated their tools and can now unpack the new update. CFW will probably be out tomorrow. Good job SONY. Give us cross game chat instead of wasting your time trying to stop hackers. Your keys were leaked for gods sake, you’re already screwed.

I have read though all these pages just because my playstation wouldn’t update. I’m surprised there are no xbot anywhere.

i managed to download the update at my first try, so no problem with me.

+ darrstr on January 26th, 2011 at 7:12 pm said:

Thanks again psn for screwing up my console! Why must I download your patch to play a game? Now the stupid patch will not download and my console is useless!!!!!!! I did not buy this console to have it sit there! So far most of the downloads have only added headaches and adds that I am forced to wade through to get to the game I want to play, WHY? I still can not believe I actually have to see adds everytime I try to play! I did not agree to this kind of forced advertising! You really make me want to switch to XBOX!

+ mineakey on January 26th, 2011 at 7:12 pm said:

I agree that changes are needed. I have an original 60 gig that I have had no problems with (yes the L fell out of playstation 2 weeks after purchase, must have been a warning). My first real complaint is fallout 3, stupid loading and freezing. So I upgraded to a 128gig SSD and now I am happy again. Let’s get a better browser or a pandora app now!
