Maintenance can just be improvements, any “update list” really won’t matter until the new firmware adds the capability to use it.

i.e., maybe they updated the network to have cross platform invites which is simply giving the value of a message as a message+game code+invite flags. This is just an example. Even if that happened, Firmware can’t presently do it and it would require an update, along with game devs having to include the functionality.

Anyway can you put a schedule on the blog that talks about things like this and upcoming games? Even put releases of content on there.

Updating the network cool Sony. I hope it helps Home to function much better.

P.S. get your bluetooth headsets, its better talking in Home than typing.

PSN ID: stennex.

Home works for me, no need to download any form of updates.

@anyone that says Home was hacked:
A script kiddy doing local updates is nothing new. I have an Ad blocker and that stops ads, does that mean I’m hacking website? No, I’m modifying local content only.

Can we get the info on what was updated! For some reason I could still log in during the update?


tezasaurus said:

I hope it stabilizes Home. Getting randomly booted is a pain in the ass.

Does the update has any relation to G4tv crashing Home?

bigdaddyjane said:

December 16th, 4:17 pm

A bit late aren’t ya.I’m done with playing my PS3 for today.

matheaks said:

December 16th, 4:23 pm

Does this update fix Home?

Why does my gravatar not work?

ThomasAnthony said:

December 16th, 4:25 pm

Look at the very last post:
Even if you don’t have problems you should do this, its so helpful and a much better experience overall. I have static IP and port fowarding on every computer/game system in my house and trust me, its very nice.

Could be a firmware update!

Nick212004 said:

December 16th, 5:36 pm

Thank you for the update. I am sure this downtime was to fix some things due to all the traffic the PSN has been getting with the Home beta. Is this correct?

MidgetguyII said:

December 16th, 5:47 pm

COOL! I honestly didn’t have any problems with the Playstation Network during this maintenance period…

:) That’s a good thing though!

DMeisterJ said:

December 16th, 5:48 pm

Wasn’t down form me, meh.

Did you guys fix Home though? I normally log in on the second try, but I’d like to log in instantly.

absolute said:

December 16th, 5:50 pm

What do you guys want an update list of? It was regular maintenance.

illegalprelude said:

December 16th, 5:53 pm

One thing I did notice is the logo under Add Ons for LBG has changed for the better. You can now tell what it is.

——- PS3 Firmware Wish List ——- By Skater_Ricky
► When Playing a Game and hitting the [PS BUTTON] Should “ONLY” have the Options to See our Friends List, Sound Options, Microphone Options And Music to be changed would Make a Faster Loading up for IN-Game XMB. (What it’s Really is needed is for Messaging because its really Important to see and Message Back and Forth to Our Friends When Needed)

► Trophy Level and Percentage Below or Next to Our Avatars and PSN ID. (Will Make it Easier to see what there Level is Rather then opening up there SLOW GAME Cards but if this Slows down the Friend List Please do not add!)

► MORE AVATARS saying this for all because have to many friends on my list with the same Avatars.

► Text Messages to be allowed to be seen in our VOICE CHAT to make it kinda like Text Chat also.. some times getting in a room with more then 4 gets to be a problem and Text is Needed to Speak your words of wisdom.

Skater_Ricky said:

December 16th, 9:22 pm

► Cross Game Voice Chat (Just like the Option in HOME to Call up a Friend even have the ring sounds and have the same options as accepting them [START BUTTON])

► XMB Cross Game Invite so we can send a invite to anyone on our PSN Friends List so we can play a game with them easier BY sending a Message What Game we are ON and What Level.

► A SPECIAL SOUND for Text Messages being Received (Option to turn off or on) reason some people will not like the idea or get annoyed with it.

► Voice Messaging (To leave Offline Voice Messages example 15-20 second voice clips to record on.) to send to there INBOX.

► XMB Screen shot for anything on the screen even not just for games. (Example if you wanted to take a screen shot of your Custom XMB Theme or wanted to take a screen shot of your Trophy collection)

► In-Game MUSIC using the XMB “NOT” just a feature in some Games.

— I’m sure theirs something that I forgot about —

Add an option to let developers let you join an online game through the XMB.

For example, your friend is playing Call of Duty: World at War online, you can highlight the friends name, press Triangle, and hit Join Game (obviously you need the disk in). You’ll be instantly warped to their match.

PLEASE!!!! This needs to be through the XMB. New firmwire update, please! It would make it sooo much easier and connected.

@35 maxima-kid you have to be atleast 13 to enter home or is it 16 at the moment?

madtyger said:

December 17th, 8:55 am

Awesome, hopefully I can actually play some online games now.

Dante989 said:

December 17th, 9:19 am

SONY, You need to add MODS to HOME and fast. Almost ALL of my friends have stopped using HOME because they can’t stand the people who act so very immature. And I’m sorry to say, I’m about to join them.
I’m tired of reporting people for harassment!

d3adliner said:

Just get rid of voice chat altogether in Home. People can either buy a usb keyboard, the controller keyboard, or use the DualShock2.

Too many people playing music on the mic & ‘internet gangsters’ causing a scene with their foul language and pointless threats.

Also, next firmware update… the ability to sign into the PSN as invisible?

Netweb said:

December 17th, 10:58 am

MORE AVATARS… make my own!

hsgar54 said:

December 17th, 11:14 am

Great, so what. I still can’t get in . Still get an error message 8013013e. What gives guys? How is this problem going to be corrected?

six_uglyhappy said:

December 17th, 11:39 am

Is the age requirement over 16? Although I use the sub account on my PS3, whenever I go into Home I receive the error that I am not yet old enough to enter it. . .

Suggestions//help appreciated

GrieverBlade said:

December 17th, 1:16 pm

For some reason, my PS3 won’t connect to the PSN.
And I’ve been trying for about an hour now.
Is there some unexpected maintenance going on?

kspraydad said:

December 17th, 6:17 pm

Assuming you are in NA it is 13+

Go into your Account Management and set Restrict Content Based on Age to YES and you’ll be able to get in. If you are on a sub-account you need to set this on the Master Account.
