Just curious though, why such a small update? There has got to be something else coming with it

I’m just hoping this will cure my trophy sync failing at 11%.

It’d be nice if this would trim some of the fat off the ingame XMB, also. Cleaning up the icons that appear but can’t access unless you quit game would help the speed. I would think anyway

Ok! thanks for the heads up

jazzyrider said:

December 6th, 5:10 pm

Please clarify on the security update! And is it required?

Joaquin27488 said:

December 6th, 5:14 pm

Of course it’s required, it’s mandatory to have the latest firmware installed to be able to log on PSN.

Let’s hope this takes care of hackers for a while.

Ethereal said:

December 6th, 5:20 pm

Well I guess security is something you always need. Damn Hackers. Eagerly awaiting the next big update!


December 6th, 5:20 pm

I’d rather have an update that fixes the slow WiFi downloads :-)
(google: ps3 slow download wpa2 for example)

Ruffday said:

December 6th, 5:21 pm

I wonder what Sony’s gonna remove now!

DNAgent said:

December 6th, 5:22 pm

I don’t always update, but when I do…It’s a security update.

But seriously, how about that cross-game voice chat?

Fenrir2606 said:

December 6th, 5:22 pm

At least this time you all said its a security update instead of “this update increases compatibility with certain games” lol One step in the right direction.

Trixzter7 said:

December 6th, 5:22 pm

It should be illegal for me to have to download an update that does basically nothing when I could be playing Gran Turismo 5.

Destiny89 said:

December 6th, 5:22 pm

Aww i was hoping for a big update that adds something new, i would like to have a voice message added to ps3

symeon6 said:

December 6th, 5:24 pm

Me want new web browser >:( … But safety is good too.

twooh said:

December 6th, 5:24 pm

Don’t update ladies and gentlemen. It’s a trap.

3.50 is better.;)

Google: Jailbreak ps3 3.50

FredPunella said:

December 6th, 5:25 pm

XxDeathDoctorxX shut up.

Get off this site you pathetic troll.

Chessy_08 said:

December 6th, 5:25 pm

Yo sony these security updates arent doing jack to prevent the hackers and modders form doing anything so why dont u work on add some features for all the legitimate PS3 owners?

Enforcer_X said:

December 6th, 5:25 pm

Boring … thanks a lot hackers and thank you Sony for pounding the rest of us that aren’t engaging in hacking our systems.

Please see my Blog Share idea regarding an open app store/market place for these very talented hackers/developers to showcase there work.

Joaquin27488 said:

December 6th, 5:26 pm

Dudes, dudes, cam control for XMB, yeah, that just happened xD


ThatPolishBoy13 said:

December 6th, 5:27 pm

I bet its more than a security update… Maybe something secret will be put into this update.

Taker_129 said:

December 6th, 5:29 pm

Blame the media for complaining about the updates. I loved when the ps3 got updated because that meant the ps3 was getting a new feature. But as usual, the media b#tches about it and now Sony has reduced the amount of updates we get a year. I really hate the gaming media with all their bias. But Sony keep up the good work. More updates please.


December 6th, 5:29 pm

Dont waste my time and bandwidth sony, at least add a feature

Skater_Ricky said:

Need to Add a Option to Defragment Hard Drive in the Settings Selection

It seems the More and More I fill up my 500GB HDD it gets slower and slower.

Zinacef said:

December 6th, 5:33 pm

Very concise!

AztecaPride559 said:

December 6th, 5:34 pm

Whatever happened to the GOOD updates? You know, the ones that actually add features we want?

cortiz2092000 said:

December 6th, 5:35 pm

yeah i heard that about the jailbreak update for 3.50 ps3 now…
and 3.55 is just a security patch… really sony if u want people to update u gotta give em reasons to like something new that everyone in the ps3 could enjoy so BOO!!! i hope u consider bringing Crisis core onto the psn store for us pspgo users

im tried of this

yazter said:

December 6th, 5:35 pm

Wow, amazing.

People have been asking for certain features for years now, and you intentionally ignore them.

Yet a firmware is jailbroken and bam, within 72 hours a new firmware rolls out.

Why not show such enthusiasm for other features?

Kamiboy said:

December 6th, 5:37 pm

Oh, wonderful, another one of those. This sort of bollocks is what killed the PSP, so why not keep it up SCE?

GooDer_gAMe said:

December 6th, 5:40 pm

Great update. Love updates of all kinds, major features or not. Better than getting 1 update yearly. Keep up the good work.

Dear Sony Development Team,

This is Skater_Ricky Christmas List That I hope all
SONY Elvis can put these toys into the ever so growing
Powerful PS3.

? (Party System) Cross Game Voice Chat
? Voice Messaging (30 second – 60 second clip)
? Be able to hit the PS button to Answer a Message that a Friend has Sent
? Faster IN-GAME XMB.. take out useless options that can’t be used or REVAMP the whole In-game XMB or just make a better In-game menu all together and deal without the XMB for in-game Menu.
? Option to Defragment Hard Drive in the Settings Selection
? Custom Avatars
? Screenshoot Capture Built into the PS3 OS across all Games and Apps.
? Easier to Customize Folders for all MUSIC, GAME, PHOTO’s
? Direct Feed from PlayStation Blog in the What’s New Section.
? Music Player Visual (Bigger Album Art) while playing with a nice Music Player Visuals.
? iPhone and iPod support to Upload Pictures and Listen to Music. (I’d like to at least upload my pictures from my iPhone to my PS3)
? Backward Compatibility with PS2 (Software/Firmware Update)

Thanks Skater_Ricky :D

i don’t mind a security update but add some new features. i usually wait a few days after a firmware is out to see the feedback from those that downloaded it. SONY you need to add new features not just mandate us with a security update . I don’t think sony can stop the downgrader. GIVE US NEW FEATURES! EVERYBODY JOIN TOGETHER AND DEMAND NEW FEATURES! AND GIVE ME BACK OTHER OS! INDIAN GIVERS! end of rant . here come the sony bendovers….

The PS3 was jailbroken several months ago, I fail to see how it’s surprising at all that we’re entering the firmware arms race phase – it’s only natural. Don’t blame Sony, blame the jailbreakers.

The scene guys came up with ways to downgrade v3.50 to v3.41, and more recently showed vids running unsigned codes on v3.50. What do you expect Sony to do, do nothing and let everyone FTP illegal downloaded games to their console and hack trophy info?

Link01 said:

December 6th, 5:45 pm

Good for the security… but you guys are a little over due for a big update, no offense.

AngleofDeath696 said:

December 6th, 5:45 pm

Please add full MKV support.

Keysersoze10033 said:

What a waste of time and resources. You aren’t stopping any hackers, you’re just ruining the customer experience with daily updates.


shystie1 said:

New patch … !!!
Oh wait it’s just a security patch!!!!
Now I have a Sad Face!! :(

mjc0961 said:

@32: I don’t think Sony has ever released those kinds of updates for the PS3. I mean, I don’t know about anyone else, but I sure didn’t ask for a video editor, colorful friend lists, Home, and all the other junk we get.

This nonsense is a waste of our time. The pirates are just going to crack the new update soon enough, and then we’ll get another worthless update, and another and another and another. Just stop wasting our time with these silly things and work on actual features.
