I might hack my PS3, just so I can avoid these useless updates while still being able to log in to the PSN.

What are you people blabbering on about hackers and significant updates for? PS3 hasn’t seen a /good/ update since 3.40 back at the end of June.

taking away more functionality? kicking more sand in our faces, perhaps?

How long until we get a working browser? Even the Wii has a better-working, standards-compliant browser.

When will we be able to rate games and videos from the XMB via the ‘triangle’ menu?

When will 3D bluray transcode their audio to (at least) 24-bit DTS-HD?

When will you update the version of GCC in the SDK so that the unofficial toolchain isn’t superior in the optimized code it produces?

when will we get a boxee/xbmc app?

be more responsive and no one will have a reason to hack their console.

Uriel_Itachi said:

This update is taking forever,is been like 15 minutes and is still at 19% it usually takes less for this updates.
O well Guess I go watch my video elsewhere… anyone up for pizza?

robert57chev said:

January 26th, 6:26 pm

not turning off after updat cant even get update to go past 15%

oArrogance said:

January 26th, 6:26 pm

Stalls at 10-20% completion, 20Mbps connection running at 100%, no custom firmware/software/hardware/bloatware whatever you kids wanna call it, pure official ps3/content …

meatrean12 said:

January 26th, 6:26 pm

I lied. Fked up at 19%

Stoffinator said:

January 26th, 6:26 pm

We all know its for the Jailbreak crap. I hope Sony nails them in court.

LE_Bichon_Frisee said:

Can’t do it on my 2 PS3, what’s the problem Sony ?!?!?

Firelogic said:

@GUNBEHINDTHESUN:
Sounds like it’s more of a problem with you. If you’ve had 3 yellow lights of death in the span of 5 years, the obvious source of the problem is YOU. I’ve had zero problems with my 40GB PS3 which I bought when they first hit the market.

The_Spleen said:

January 26th, 6:27 pm

The farthest I’ve been able to update to has been 17%. I’m on my 9th attempt now. I don’t understand why Sony can’t make sure the new firmware is posted on their site when they launch a new system update, it would be so much easier since there would be less server congestion.

DillingerEscaped said:

January 26th, 6:27 pm

Another worthless update. Thanks, Sony.

danny-r-b said:

January 26th, 6:28 pm

Same thing here – around 10% it reports an error and states it can not connect to the server. My internet connection is fine! Any news on when this will actually work?

mlanie10 said:

January 26th, 6:28 pm

@ meatrean12
I didn’t set it to turn off after update and I still get the error.

xBeRad said:

January 26th, 6:28 pm

I’m at 30% i think its working!

intelligentboy said:

January 26th, 6:28 pm

……. but still no MAJOR patches in like the past 4 months, V3.0 was okay, but I mean SONY please, I want an explanation WHY the MOST requested features still aren’t implemented. WHY are features like cross-game chat and backwards compatibility not there?, though the latter used to be a working feature. I can see why you guys removed the b/wards compatibility to cut the cost but a good idea would be to let you rip the data off the ps2 disc and saving it onto the ps3 would work.

TL:DR – FEATURES LIKE CROSS-GAME CHAT STILL NOT ON THE PS3 AFTER 4-5 YEARS is bugging me. The sheer length of time it is taking SONY to put these things in REALLY bugs me.

STILL, I AM A LOYAL PS3 OWNER!!!

LE_Bichon_Frisee said:

January 26th, 6:28 pm

Oh I think the problem is solved! Change your account and run the update! it work!

Firelogic said:

@DillingerEscaped:
Another useless comment. Thanks DillingerEscaped.

robert57chev said:

January 26th, 6:29 pm

made it to 18% then error thats the highest for me so far lol

Elimin8erX said:

January 26th, 6:29 pm

I don’t mind that there is a security patch to help with the recent hacking of the system, but why not give us an idea of WHAT it is actually doing and maybe throw something else with it that we might actually want. I mean when was the last time there was an actual update that was NOT just security update.

Come on now Sony I know you can better than this.

Ruffy___ said:

January 26th, 6:29 pm

So did I….SOny please post this update on your site so people can update via a usb stick.

KazeEternal said:

@Eric Lempel
2 Things

1) Please for the love of God get rid of the PS Move screen that comes up before every PS Move game starts. We didn’t scrap the PS3 logo at game start just to have it replaced wtih another game delaying message.

2) Serial Keys are completely unacceptable, if I wanted to futs with this stuff I would have continued to remain on PC.

Some people are totally unaffected by this, which is strange. The majority of us seem to be having the same issue though.

RicPo420 said:

January 26th, 6:29 pm

I can confirm, it errored at 14% for me, I do not have a hacked system or anything like that, infact I have a fairly new system with a perfect internet connection… [DELETED] sony!! all I want to do is play oooooooooonline!

exterminator_123 said:

January 26th, 6:30 pm

my highes is 59%

xBeRad said:

January 26th, 6:30 pm

Froze at 32% then same thing

nathan_a said:

January 26th, 6:30 pm

Switched from wired to wireless and made it up to 19% now .. my guess this is totally random and the servers are just getting hammered. Sigh .. wanted to play some online GT5 with friends at the regularly scheduled time.

Not an elegant system, Sony.

meatrean12 said:

January 26th, 6:31 pm

@mlanie10
Sorry I lied. It stalled out at 21% for me. Atleast I got to download more of it. -.-
Might as well sell this piece of crap console and get a 360.
And besides, it will most likely be sorted out.. in around 1 week – 3 weeks. Thanks sony.

Schneed said:

January 26th, 6:31 pm

i got too 32% this time! alright new record for completion %!

Thanks, Sony

Toshi_TNE said:

January 26th, 6:31 pm

How about adding new features or fixing the crappy browser SONY? And don’t give me that hacker crap, we haven’t had a decent update in ages, even before the hacking started. You’re just good at taking things away. Well, perhaps the naughty hackers can add cross game chat…

Any news on the PSN android app ? Remote play for Android phones and all laptops. Here’s hoping for the best.
