PS3 System Software Update (v4.10)

ps3

Hi, everyone. We are releasing a new system software update (v4.10) for PlayStation 3 today that will include a few minor changes that we want to make you all aware of.

First off, once you download the new system software, you will be asked to accept a change to our Terms of Service. In an effort for more unity between PlayStation Network (PSN) and other Sony Entertainment Network services, your “PSN Account” will now be named “Sony Entertainment Network Account.” Please note that this change is one in name only and will not change the PSN that you know and love. You’ll still play games online, still have access to the latest downloadable games and add-ons, and still experience a wide variety of movies, sports and music across PSN.

With this system software update (v4.10), we’ll also be updating the PS3 Internet Browser with improved display speed.

You can find more details after the firmware goes live here. We look forward to your feedback in the comments below.

I ‘know’ PSN, but I certainly don’t ‘love’ it. That (^) being one of the reasons. SEN… Seriously? Corporate BS…

People use the PS3 web browser? I didn’t think anyone used it. Well I guess this update is good for the 2 people who actually use it.

Will this fix the error code mesage we’ve been getting since the maintenance this week that won’t allow us to add funds to our accounts and won’t let us add new cards???? Error code 80023102. Please fix this now. Phone support is LESS than helpful. I’ve been directed to use a network card as the solution. THE solution. Not A solution. THE. Really??!! O.o

+ thunderbear on February 7th, 2012 at 7:13 pm said:

Can’t wait to test out the new browser! I’d use the browser so much more if it was more compatible with most websites so I hope this update does just that.

It also lets you automatically sync the time, nice feature SONY!

Thanks for the heads up Eric.

Please consider the following:

– Rename the PSN Store to the SEN Store. Use the same format as the Video Unlimited preview app for the SEN Store. All media can be tagged and found in categories. You can sell other media there, like e-books for the Vita and Reader and digital comics for the Vita and Sony Tablets. Add Reader and Digital Comic Viewer apps to the Vita.

– Allow me to better manage music players, especially my Walkman, in the Music tab, and cameras, especially my Cyber Shot, in the Photos tab.

– Turn Life With PlayStation to Life With Sony, giving tech-related news as an option. Also make the news easier to read, as it only takes up a small portion of the screen.

– Merge “What’s New” and the news ticker in a way to contstantly show news instead in the lower left of the XMB. Offer discounts to various Sony products.

– Add proper Flixster and Crackle apps to the Video/TV Services tab. Show all new launch trailers for games in Flixster.

+ Morac_ on February 7th, 2012 at 7:15 pm said:

Actually the new automatically set the date/time feature on login is much more interesting to me than browser fixes. The PS3’s clock always runs slow so this is a welcome update.

PS3 update is live by the way. Only took about a minute to download.

    It’s still called PSN, nothing has changed. SEN is the name of your *account* not the service that you’re using (PSN).

Thank you for finally speeding up the dang browser.

Any chance of giving the terrible XMB an update? It’s slow, and stupid.

+ Guadie on February 7th, 2012 at 7:19 pm said:

Is it possible to change the Message Box so when I’m reading a message it goes back to the message box instead of going all the way back to the top level menu? If you’re reading multiple messages you have to re-enter the message for each message. Makes no sense.

Thx.

Improved browser, how fast is it? Is it IE fast, Firefox fast or Chrome fast?

+ Zookey on February 7th, 2012 at 7:22 pm said:

If it’s not part of this update, can you please make it part of a future one that sub-accounts can use social networking and facebook? My brother, back in 2006, accidentally made his PSN ID a sub-account of mine and there is no way to undo it–he can’t use FaceBook right now but he doesn’t want to lose his DLC, friends and trophies by starting all over again just to use FB.

wow improving the web browser? must be a first haha.

Unfortunately i can’t use my browser due to it saying I have not enough virtual memory or something.

+ JEC94 on February 7th, 2012 at 7:23 pm said:

I hope the browser will stop freezing now!

Hey Eric… i’ve been having PS3 problems the past few hours. I went to download the New Tester episode and a message popped up saying my other PS3(Orig. 60gb in my Living Room(LR), had to be DEACTIVATED.

Now Eric, the PS3 Slim I use in my bedroom, is my Main PS3, which I use for everything. The Living Room PS3 I use, but not much. I went into the Orig. 60gb Acct info, i DEACTIVATED both the GAMES and the VIDEO, which were both CONFIRMED.

I went back to my PS3 Slim in my bedroom, started it up and went into my Account. I ACTIVATED both the Games, and the Video in my Bedroom PS3 Slim. Upon restarting it, I again, could NOT download the Tester episode again as it was still saying that my OTHER PS3 needed to be bdeactivated. Which I have done countless times.

I called Sony anf they were ZERO help……If you can, go into the TESTER Blog, scroll down, look up my name and read my posts where I went into the problem.

I am PRAYING that the new 4.1 update, fixes this problem. I already had to cancel my GF coming over since I cant download anything from the video store until it gets fixed and not getting any help sure as heck isnt helping my mood right now

PLEASE HELP.

Give us some more features! Improve PSN!

You guys should update the YouTube page because I hate XL

Why are people rating this high? Sony is just putting more limitations on us like every other update for the last 2 years. Sad. I really had high hopes for PS3 this generation. Now all I can do is regret ever going with them. PC will win the next war.

I’ve been trying to get this patch for the last hour, I keeps giving me error 8002FB22. I googled it to no avail.
And without a way to get the 4.10 patch through the website, I’m sitting here twiddling my thumbs until I can get into the store to buy some of the new stuff for today.

Is the update available as a pc download because im having trouble updating with my system

Awesome! I hope the browser is a lot faster.

Also,
@Haskell420 You can try signing in here and deactivating your console’s. Idk if it will help but it’s worth a shot. https://account.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/login.action?service-entity=psn

+ TUSTIN1 on February 7th, 2012 at 7:30 pm said:

Yeah, the browser is great , I love how it asks you if you want to run the plugin as soon as you click on it and then again as soon as you select youtube.

I don’t know how I got by before without doing that


43

+ KwietStorm on February 7th, 2012 at 7:31 pm said:

Will we (n)ever get a categorized download history list? PS3 games, PSP games, demos, avatars, themes, add one, etc. The store already has everything pinned. I would have thought we would have this a long time ago. Its almost impossible to find a specific item in a list of over a thousand.

+ remanutd5 on February 7th, 2012 at 7:32 pm said:

btw guys ps vita games are available on psn already , wipeout is $35.99 and Uncharted Golden Abyss is $49.99 , why UGA digital version isnt cheaper ?


45

+ o_silver8ack_o on February 7th, 2012 at 7:32 pm said:

Why isn’t the web page updated with the new version, when my PS3 is telling me that 4.10 must be downloaded? Smooth as usual Sony. For some reason the PS3 download is butt slow for these updates, but PC download is about 5x as fast. Why? Both wired connections. WHY WHY WHY

That’s nice and all, but how about explaining why the U.S. won’t be getting the UMD Passport program for the PS Vita.

Still no fixes for the errors seemingly tied to 4.00 regarding some downloadable titles(Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Dragon Age: Origins, Hard Corps Uprising, Hydrophobia, etc…)? A Browser fix is nice and all, but I’d like to see an XMB upgrade and general upgrades in performance and customization. Just my opinion, take it or leave it.
