PS3 System Software Update (v4.10)

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.

@187 you do understand that you can go into safe mode and repair system files, right?

This firmware update still hasn’t fixed the problem with the dynamics themes. Many of the dynamic themes i purchased off the PS store don’t work properly. Like the Deus Ex dynamic theme for example, i payed 3$ for it and i can’t even use it wtf. I’ve been reading on the ps blog that many other people have had this problem since FW 4.00 PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!! I have over 10$ of purchased themes. Someone working for sony on this blog better read this, and reply PLEEEEEEASE!

@189 the clause you’re referring to never took away your ability to sue, even if you never sent in your letter opting out of the clause.

and really… had there not been so many (likely) fat, lazy and litigious idiots last year suing over the silliest crap (and losing pretty badly in court, i might add) looking to make a quick buck, that clause wouldn’t have existed.

not to mention the fact that both EA and MS have identical clauses in their ToS agreements, yet it’s only a problem if sony includes it?

@ 196 ziggurcat
How do you enter safe mode to take care of corrupted data? I deleted Resistance 3 from the hdd for space and instead of actually deleting it became corrupted.

The “PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset” is bugged after “4.10 update”.

This is my hardware:
PS3 80GB MGS edition, wireless stereo headset (Sony)

Here is what i’m experiencing:
1. echoing of my voice (loudly) in my headphones
2. poor connection (static when speaking)
3. I experience this within Black Ops, World at War and Battlefield 3

Please fix this. Post directions to stop the feedback in the headphones.

So the same thing happens to me ever since the 4.0 update. Its not really a problem, just kinda awkward to have to delete the minis after i install them. i don’t remember if this happened for the PS1 Classics… And it DOESNT happen when i install PS3 games. weird. Great job PS. Cant Wait 4 Vita!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like what you did to the internet browser by making it html5 compatible. Now could we just have the current Flash player then it would be a great web browser.

why in the 5+ years has the PSN had no real significant upgrades to its interface? The store, xmb and overall navigation feel light years behind the XBL. Are there any plans to give it a facelift and incorporate some more user friendly navigation mechanics/filtering?

Install update. Play game 1 hour. 60GB model PS3 turns itself off and red light starts blinking.

I’ve never had this issue before and now my PS3 can only stay on for 2 minutes before it auto shuts down and the power indicator starts blinking. Coincidence?

Ironic how I was considering buying a slim to spare my launch unit last week and now this happens.

I own the recently released Sony Playstation Headset, and after the update I can now hear my voice and noices in my room through my headset speakers. I really don’t like this, is there anyway I can change this?

I don’t know if anyone realized this, but the official Sony PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset already had mic audio playback through the headset itself before this current firmware update. If you rub the mic before going online, you can hear the feedback through the headset. So, you were technically able to hear yourself before, it was just nearly impossible unless you were really close to the mic. I don’t mind being able to hear myself, I think it’s sort of nice. However, I do not like the static that the headset is picking up after the firmware update. Also, the mic should not be able to pick up noises that are happening in another room, that’s annoying as well. I’m not sure if other people can hear those extra noises or just the user, but it’s annoying either way. At least the headset still works fine when playing offline, but it has become a nuisance to use online.

Does anyone come to this blog to do anything besides complain like everything is the end of the world? Too bad theres no such thing as a whiney kid filter for my browser or something, or for the poor people who manage this blog.

Anyway, what does this name change do? Like does this allow us to use our present PSN account on other services?

JJeff Rubensteinn is all over the Headset bug & Inferno Pool for PS+ members. last night was quite a bungling for sony. 1st they forgot to drop a game for Plus subs, Inferno Pool ($9.99), which was to be free on Feb 7th. Jeff isn’t sure if it was a typo that was in the February Preview For Plus, or if the store forgot it, but it’ll be out in next weeks update for sure.

as for the headset bug, Jeff is aware of it, and is currently escalating it to the right people. we should have this fixed asap! :)

The new ToS agreement is so full of errors it can’t possibly be legally binding. For example all throughout the doc it refers to the IMPORTANT arbitration section as “section 15″ when in fact the arbitration section is SIXTEEN. Could invalidate the whole agreement. What moron wrote this? And more importantly, what (former) employee edited it?
