PS3 3.30 System Software Update

Eric Lempel's Avatar Posted by

SVP, Marketing & PlayStation Network

Hi everyone, in our continued effort to provide the best, most comprehensive entertainment experience possible, we’ll be adding a few new features to PlayStation 3 (PS3) via the latest system software update, which is a mandatory update and will be available shortly. Most notably, you’ll see some new sorting options within Trophies that make it easier to claim bragging rights among your friends on PlayStation Network.

  • Trophy enhancements –- Now you can more easily sort trophies in the [Trophy Collection] and [Comparing Trophy] sections. Sorting can be done with [Trophy Collection] in the [Game Category] and also when comparing trophies with your friends in the [Friend Category]
    • Trophy Folder (Title List) can be sorted by game name/ by title according to the date in which you earned your last trophy (ascending/descending)
    • Add-on list (Group list) can be sorted by original/the date in which you earned your last trophy (ascending/descending)
    • Trophy list can be sorted by original/trophy name/grade/date of obtaining the trophy (ascending/descending)

In addition, this update preps the PS3 system for some upcoming new features, including 3D stereoscopic gaming, which is coming soon to PS3, in time for the launch of Sony’s 3D BRAVIA TVs.

Let us know your thoughts and as always, we look forward to your feedback.

@276 invites and messaging is easy. Stop asking for dumb things and we’ll stop getting dumb updates.

Fix the browser please. Would like it to work like a REAL browser… know-an ACTUAL search/address input & flash capabilities….there’s soooooo many things we can’t see or do without them. I mean, come on. Apple has already limited i-pod touch/i-phones so we can’t download flash…..we NEED the ability to download whatever is necessary to view content/play most things.

#289, it does allow you to listen to music and play certain games at same time. its just up to game developers to add it to their games. Just not that many have added it yet.

sony ur doing good ppl dont understand that there are deadlines for u to have certain things out legal issues ur having and that ur not a person ur a company that is in the entertainment business not everything is about the console. the only thing i wish i had the ability to do on my ps3 again is be able to listen to my music while im on the browser(which has no problems btw) and listen to my music on wat ever game im playin not just certain games all of them. but there is probably some legal issue with that like copyright protection. but im done ranting Sony Corp GOOD JOB!!

PS just take a little responsibility for wat u take away .

SONY………………I understand not wanting to be a copy cat,but WE the PS3 owners need to be able to chat with friends while in different games……Home is nice, but would love to be chatting with Voice chat with friends while killn a guy in madden……kinda hard to play games with Text chat…….bet this feature isn’t even being used except in Home……please give the fans what they Need

kithrin said:

April 21st, 9:08 pm

I agree with alot of statements about the browser needing to be updated

SSJStarwind16 said:

April 21st, 9:08 pm

“We will be ADDING a few new features”

Atleast this update was better than the last, but still no browser updates, still no Cross-Game Chat, still no Voice or video messages, still no OtherOS

Trophy Sorting? I guess some people will find this update a good one with some merit and use

3-D gaming, ok that’s kinda cool but I wish that the TV hardware wasn’t so expensive.

I will say thank God you are back to adding features in updates instead of taking them away.

Plug in the controller via usb, and press the really small reset button on the back of the controller.

AndyAlfredo said:

April 21st, 9:10 pm

Cross game chat and a web browser upgrade and we’re good.

Camborix said:

April 21st, 9:10 pm

I will wait a couple of days before update my PS3. I don’t want other FAIL update.
PD: I haven’t forgotten the OS issue

#273 and others
Youtube seems to be working now. It had nothing to do with this update because I haven’t done that yet.
It must not be required to sign in to psn. Im using my ps3 to type this. I had to sign in to post here. Like I said I haven’t updated yet.

andslasher123 said:

April 21st, 9:10 pm

it’s kinda a good update for me since I collect trophies just for FUN and I can finally organize my trophy list BUT STILL doesn’t prove the fact we waited months for a big update and this what you give us organizing trophies Sony please… I have a 360 and I don’t wanna buy 50 dollars a year for Xbox live but it seems Sony doesn’t give a [deleted] for PSN and I should just buy Xbox Live for better online gaming experience……

WTH sony the ps3 has much bigger problems then whether or not it can do 3D like how horrible the browser is.
So much for it: IT DOES EVERYTHING . it cant do any new since it first came out thats worth anything.


BiLwiS said:

April 21st, 9:13 pm

“Hi everyone, in our continued effort to provide the best, most comprehensive entertainment experience possible, we’ll be adding a few new features”

THIS is your idea of providing the “best, most comprehensive entertainment experience possible?”

Plz can anyone provide a Link to update via PC / flash Drive.


Kurowski_God said:

April 21st, 9:19 pm

New flash player please, no adays most sites use it, so I can’t watch it on my PS3.

nemesis8835 said:

April 21st, 9:19 pm

where i can download the update via pc???

CsMisi said:

April 21st, 9:21 pm

No Cross Game Chat
No Facebook enhancements
No DivX HD – no DivX 7 support
No SkyPe
I have no money for a 3D TV (at this price tag)
I don’t care to sort my trophies

Useless update …

thekillermiller said:

April 21st, 9:21 pm

This is great, but what we really need is a browser update. You tube no longer works, nor does gametrailers. The browser needs a adobe flash update!

CsMisi said:

April 21st, 9:22 pm

That is 2 useless updates in one month … Superb job.

dewey144 said:

April 21st, 9:23 pm

I would like to take the time and Thank you for the update. I personally was getting annoyed with the trophy listing because I could never find the game in my list. Now I can easily find them.

And also to the people that complain about the other OS feature. That’s what you have a computer for. I’m sure if you have a PS3 you have a computer so just install linux or whatever else onto your computer and stop complaining about it on here. Please and Thank you

Martyy420 said:

April 21st, 9:23 pm

OK… Seriously not to be a downer or anything but who honestly cares about this? How many people do you think actually own a 3D television?!?!?!?! How many people actually care about trophies?!?!?!??! How about you people spend your time on programming updates worth while to gamers that *PLAY GAMES*.. Maybe you can start with your crappy wireless cards, I dont know about all of you but wireless internet connections for the PS3 is just a waste of time for me… Maybe fix the lag on the PS eye? Something that does something!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Honestly this 1 1/2 hr long update really pisses me off (excuse my language but its absolutely necessary) I DONT BENEFIT FROM THIS UPDATE AT ALL AND IF I DONT UPDATE IT AND WASTE 2 HRS OF MY LIFE DOWNLOADING THE UPDATE I CANT PLAY ONLINE GAMES!!!!!

DarkHawkDX said:

April 21st, 9:23 pm

Hey guess what people if you have the time to complain about sony’s ps3 updates you really have no life… :(

Amyrykan_psyko said:

Yeah here’s a question: What ever happened to getting Mozilla Firefox browser on the PS3? Or How about adding the “Other OS” feature back to PS3? Do you really want people to hack their PS3s to re-enable this feature? Come on Sony! I bought the PS3 because of *All* that it could do. My 80GB PS3 Phat was capable of installing the Other OS. That got me through college! I did my programming assignments in C & C++ in Linux on my PS3, and when that was done, I rebooted and played Resistance 2, COD and now MAG. Please don’t make me hack my PS3 to add this feature back. Please add the “Other OS” feature back. If you don’t, I’m sure Mr. Hotz will find a way to add it back and will still look legit to the Playstation Network.

@KazeEternal *Delete games with 0% trophies from my list
*An Option for turning off Trophy notifications
*An Option to hide Trophy Notifications
*Last but not least, I had this incredible idea for a feature no one has ever done before on a console. Allow us to install an Operating System like Linux on the PS3. It’s something that should have been included on release day don’t you think?

good idea to delete unwanted trophies
stupid idea to turn off trophy notifications(im a trophy hunter an i like to see when i get a trophie an plus its not like its big an takes up alot of space)
an the hole linux thing is retarded, you can’t play games while your on it, an how stupid are you they did do it then took it off because people were trying to hack it, that an because its a game system not a comuter idiots

Says the guy calling people out on a blog.


DarkHawkDX said:

April 21st, 9:28 pm

haha nice come back.

GuttermouthSIN said:

April 21st, 9:30 pm

So what if you can’t play games while using OtherOS? You can’t play games while watching movies either, so should they remove that feature too? After all, it’s a game system, not a computer.

How you have the cheek to call people idiots with spelling like that is beyond me.


April 21st, 9:32 pm

Sony PlayStation is the best game console in the market so far. The only minor issue is youtube videos can not be added to quicklist. I hope you guys could take care of that…..PlayStation for life

Standard_Gamer said:

April 21st, 9:32 pm

Whatever happened to being able to playing ps2 discs on ps3’s? Thats something that really needs to come back. 3d gaming is too early and the majority of gamers will not be able to get 3d tv’s until at least 3 years from now.

bmad92 said:

April 21st, 9:33 pm

Now they just need to come out with a party chat where you can talk to you’re friends while playing different games online… Only thing xbox has that ps3 doesn’t.

rpgki said:

April 21st, 9:33 pm

well this is a good update, and is even better if this is going to prep the PS3 for new features, besides the 3D games and playstation move, i really hope that the features may be more than 2, for compensation of the otheros

And still the only usefull update since PS3 launched was the integration of in game xmb. wow sony…

phinnv8 said:

April 21st, 9:36 pm

Yet another useless PS3 update, gee thanks Sony. How about taking a look at PLAYSTATION BLOG SHARE for what you should be upgrading. 3D gaming requiring glasses or a whole new HDTV is just the dumbest design idea I’ve literately EVER heard with technology so lets move on please!

rmartinez10 said:

April 21st, 9:36 pm

@332, just so that you are clear, it is a Sony PlayStation 3 Computer Entertainment System. Look it up.

DarkHawkDX said:
