A new PS3 system software update, v3.56, will be released soon. This is a minor update that adds a security patch.

You Know I WISH that Sony would tell us WHAT is in the updates, in detail.
when will we get a patch that gives us some new features….
January 26th, 6:05 pm
I can’t download the firmware. At about %15, it says an error has occurred and it shuts off. I tried again and it’s the same thing.
*Installs CFW Quickly*
here we go, anti-piracy patches. thanks Hackers for the trouble you have caused for us…

>:D Time to break out the big guns. *opens up PUP extractor/repacker*
same thing here wont install gets so far then an error happens
“when will we get a patch that gives us some new features….”
i guess when the hackers stop being duchebags and stop hacking to allow piracy…

Sony, please don’t turn into Nintendo and make me stop looking forward to updates.
January 26th, 6:09 pm
Can a “minor update” actually help? I hope so, ’cause the the new CFW is spreading… it would be a shame for Sony to shut down individual consoles. I wish hackers didn’t do this =(
how about that PSP2 update? :)
PS UI needs a reboot

so no Cross-Game chat then?
Hopefully this screws over those filthy cheaters.
Too bad my PS3 has the yellow light of death again for the 3rd time. Shoddy work Sony and terrible support. For less than 5 years of ownership I will have spent nearly $100 just to own a PS3 that long let alone all the other thousands of $ I have spent on software! Thanks for nothing but headaches and worries.
I love system firmware updates, will download ASAP.

*The rating of this blog post gets lower*
Thanks Sony for ruining game night. Got booted out of Black Ops because it froze, and I find this crap when I reboot. Unlike city people, our internet out here in the country sucks and takes about 30-45 minutes to download your “minor” update.
Stop with the security updates already!
:P Sony punches pirates
anywhere from 9% to 18% system error, my internet is A-OK, whats going on?
hope the hackers are all happy that we have to go through with this. And people asking about what the security patch does, don’t. Of course they aren’t going to go into specifics. because then the hackers will know what they need to do.

WOWOWOWOWOW!!!!! I can’t download this update..keeps telling me error has occurred!!!! Sony broke it again..I wonder if they even test the updates before they actually send it out!!!! Epic failure thank god I have another system that actually works!!!
yeah…its not gonna work for u guys who installed that garbage hack on ur ps3..hahahah…ahh..good for you dumbies
I was kicked out a game and had to restart my PS3 just now, I think this update freak my system out
BTW, the next update better add something instead of security updates. The last 3 or 4 updates were security patches. Get your tech geeks on some new features.
still cant download patch dunno wuts going on
I can’t download the firmware i keep getting error.
January 26th, 6:13 pm
failing at 15% 3 times in a row now…thanks PSN!
mantab gan…. tapi masih ragu buat pasang.. banyak yang bilang masih error er.rr..
don’t blame Sony for “minor” updates or for security updates, blame the hackers :/
I can’t believe Sony is daft enough to think the cat and mouse game is going to work in favor of the PS3 when it failed miserably with the PSP.
How large is the update?
January 26th, 6:14 pm
Well, thanks Sony, this will do for the mean time.
Lock up the system, and keep them hackers from messing with stuff. Be happy with what you’ve got and quit causing problems, ya jerks!
3.56 does not work!
I can not sign in it says “a error has occurred during the operation. A connection to the sever cannot be esstablished”
I heard this patch makes DC Universe Online run at 1080p 60fps with voice chat.
Although that may have been a dream because I remember hearing it while I was having sex with Scarlett Johansen.
it not downloading for me and i did not hack my ps3
January 26th, 6:15 pm
good, i dont want hackers ruining the PSN. they can patch all day i dont mind.
Awesome update…can’t wait.
The update slowly downloads and then stalls and errors at 10%. Lame. I can’t play games, I can’t watch Netflix. This is my first night where I actually get to use my PS3 in a looooong time, and I have to deal with this.
January 26th, 6:16 pm
Yay, another BS update that took up 30 miniuites of my life.
No matter how hard Sony trys to patch the PS3, the modding comunity is still going to crack it
I got the same error @ about 15%. Ironic that a security patch gives a denial of service to the psn.
Update refuses to download at about 15%. Has failed 3 times a row. *Goes back to Ghost Trick*

ALL hacked PS3’s should be banned and bricked.
enough already , get a job earn some $$$ and buy your games
#3 they do tell you on this one “minor update that adds a security patch”
WAIT!!!….Let me grab some popcorn XD
