  • Nice, Can’t Wait!

  • ILOVEPLASTATION3

    Where are the big updates at?! lol I love those type of updates better.

  • I hope it adds something secret too!

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

  • sigh….got me all happy since it’s almost christmas…lol y’all made me waste a tear

  • Yes, please do give us some nice little nugget of goodness :).

  • Take that criminals!!

  • Probably has something to do with GT5.

  • angelspawn77

    lol @1

    Cant wait for a security update?

  • DAnnyDanger

    better safe than sorry :)

  • 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

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

  • Joaquin27488

    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.

  • AG-WarFighter

    Sony please its been a year with useless updates. ok fine yes we need security but wat about new stuff!!!!!!!

  • XxDeathDoctorxX

    last update of this yr? add some features some more plz like voice messages or cross game voice chat or in game music for all games and dont leave it upto the devs they dont add in game music usely and a faster xmb

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

  • REkTALSPiDER

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

  • I wonder what Sony’s gonna remove now!

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

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

  • 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.

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

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

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

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

    3.50 is better.;)

    Google: Jailbreak ps3 3.50

  • FredPunella

    XxDeathDoctorxX shut up.

    Get off this site you pathetic troll.

  • 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?

  • 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

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

    WHAT IS UP?

  • ThatPolishBoy13

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

  • 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.

  • POI2NO_DETECTIVE

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

  • Skater_Ricky

    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.

  • Very concise!

  • AztecaPride559

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

  • cortiz2092000

    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

  • 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?

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

  • GooDer_gAMe

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

  • Skater_Ricky

    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.

    ? 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

    ? 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….

  • @cortiz2092000:

    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?

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

  • AngleofDeath696

    Please add full MKV support.

  • Keysersoze10033

    That’s it? Boooooo Boooooooo

  • fourtwenty2009

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

    What a PAIN IN THE YOU KNOW WHAT!

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

  • @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.

  • Was expecting more to be honest
