PS3 System Software Update v3.50 Available Soon

Eric Lempel's Avatar Posted by SVP, Marketing & PlayStation Network

Hi everyone, as we announced previously, the PS3 system software update (v3.50) is adding support for Blu-ray 3D Disc Playback, and it will be released shortly.

Additional new features in the 3.50 update include:

  • Facebook Integration: Developers will be able to create PS3 games that have deep interaction with Facebook. Once compatible PS3 titles are available, PS3 users can choose to access their information on Facebook – including user name, profile, photos and friends list – to enhance their gameplay experience.
  • Grief Reporting Function: Users can send claim reports directly from the XMB for any inappropriate messages they receive from other PlayStation Network users. This feature is accessible from the option menu of the messages list in the FRIENDS category.

For more details and instructions on how to update the system software for the PS3 system, please visit http://www.us.playstation.com/PS3/Features/SystemUpdate.

As always, we look forward to your feedback.

Thank god for grief reporting. Getting sick of all of those spam messages saying “THIS IS KEVIN BUTLER – THE PS4 IS COMING SOON AND I WANT TO GIVE YOU A FREE ONE!” blah blah blah.

This update will be much appreciated.

As always, you’ll get a ton of posts demanding cross game voice chat, how about you guys look forward to that feedback?

Eric, as usual, yourself and the team have outdone yourselves. I’m very pleased that you continue to support the PlayStation 3 with updates such as 3D and now Blu-Ray 3D disk playback. Keep up the great work and hope to see additional great features such as these in the distant future!

September 20th, 7:49 pm

Please Sony! Give us the ability to change our PSN ID names! for a small fee i wouldn’t mind doing so. Japan PS3 has it -_-

Reginthorn said:

September 20th, 7:49 pm

Cool, but once again where is cross game chat? I am beginning to feel like Sony is ignoring the wants of the consumer. I mean the programing can’t be that hard, the other system has had it for awhile.

Thanks for the heads up Eric.

first update iv actually liked all year.

EdReedFan20 said:

I was hoping that a Netflix XMB application would be included. Is one coming soon still?

mateen110 said:

September 20th, 7:49 pm

If you actually looked forward to our feedback, you would have added Cross game chat in previous firmwares.

dragon_night said:

hi

mateen110 said:

September 20th, 7:50 pm

You also would add the option to save a game to HDD which results in faster game loading times. And you wonder why people jailbreak and try to hack the PS3?

dragonleader33 said:

September 20th, 7:50 pm

@5 We could report people before just not from the PS3.

Well this is nice. Hopefully we get some nice new big features soon. I dont know how much longer you can hold the users at bay.

riclucas said:

Will it automatically install for PS+ members before the scheduled PSN maintenance?

P.S. I have Auto-update set for 0400-0600AM (EST) Would that be too early?

Black_Ryuk said:

September 20th, 7:50 pm

Well thats definitely helpful…when you send report does the person your sending it about see that you did it?

gearhead32 said:

September 20th, 7:50 pm

@6 firmware update that takes an hour sounds like you have one slow connection they don’t long for me at all, good firmware update with the facebook extention and grief report for stupid text spammers

John_Oval said:

September 20th, 7:51 pm

Thank god…its about time we can report ppl. Im sick of getting those spam messages about “send this msg to 20 friends and input the code to get $50 added to your account”

NO MORE!

almighty-slayer said:

September 20th, 7:51 pm

So i have to have a message from the person who is being annoying?

That’s stupid. What if i want to report someone who is being verbally abusive in game?

jvasq said:

September 20th, 7:51 pm

@13 yea that sounds good. I would pay a small fee to change mine. Other than that, update is already up and going

Feisar said:

almighty-slayer said:

September 20th, 7:52 pm

Apart from that, good update as always :) DOn’t care about cross game chat or whatever :) I wouldn’t use it anyway

Moosehole said:

September 20th, 7:52 pm

“As always, we look forward to your feedback.”… But we’ll completely ignore it.

Fixed it for you, Eric.

Hey Sony team,
thats great that the Full 3D support is coming as is the Facebook intgration, which to me is useless, but others will love it I’m sure.
But what REALLY makes me happy, is that NOW, I can FINALLY report all the morons and thieves who keep sending me messages saying, REPLY WITH NAME AND PASSWORD AND EARN $35 in PS Network cash, and all the other ones “claiming” to be a SONY PS3 Employee whose offering great deals and BS.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING US THAT OPTION TO REPORT THEM, BECAUSE, HONESTLY, I AM SICK AND TIRED OF GETTING THESE PS “SPAM” MESSAGES!!

Now IF I am wrong, then PLEASE, correct me.

@ all of you that want those classics (especially rpgs)not on the store~ just simply- learn japanese, create a japanese email(don’t even think of including “aol” in that), shop around for japanese PSN cards online order them/wait for them in mail…download istant satisfaction!!

Its out now.

cywulf21 said:

@13
The name changing option on the Japanese PSN doesnt work like you think. You can change your name sure, but only on your screen. When you message someone it still comes under the old name even after you’ve changed it.

The grief reporting option is a welcomed addition. Thanks.

MrBeatdown said:

September 20th, 7:55 pm

But now how will I find out how to get into the Halo 4 beta on my PS3!?

Seriously though, it’s good to see people will think twice before sending out those spam messages.

Neil said:

Wheels86 said:

September 20th, 7:56 pm

NITROWOLF_2 said:

September 20th, 7:56 pm

few quick questions:
1- Is the store still updating today?
2- Other region get a music app does US get it also?

darth_soul said:

September 20th, 7:56 pm

Shortly = “RIGHT FRIGGIN’ NOW!” in Sony Speak ;)

Unless it’s a PSN Store update. Heh.

ProjectInfiniti said:

September 20th, 7:57 pm

Man…. the majority of devs don’t want to make use of that Facebook spam!

Like seriously, who TF do we have to talk to to get you people to add SOMETHING from Share into an update!? “Derp derrrp we’ll pass it along.” “We’ll see what we can do. That’s your guys favorite lines and most likely neither of those are actually being executed. We know the Japanese Sony has full control over the firmware but really you people need to get them to listen and do something!

This is truly a rediculous and pathetic generation of the PlayStation! You guys might as well dismantle the Share since it seems that no one at Sony even looks at it!

Kchow23 said:

September 20th, 7:57 pm

Will this work for secondary accounts? only my brother (Master account) has Facebook integration

darth_soul said:

September 20th, 7:57 pm

@NITROWOLF_2: They said in a reply on another blog post that they were intending to update sometime after 9 p.m. Pacific, which means 12 p.m. Eastern. (Ouch.)
