PS3 System Software Update (v3.65)

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

Earlier tonight we released an optional system software update (v3.65) for PlayStation 3. This new firmware improves the operating stability of some PS3 format software, and changes the XMB item SaveData Utility (minis) to [SaveData Utility(minis/PSP)].

Again, this update is optional, and can be downloaded by selecting System Update from the Setting column of the XMB.

“i never find myself playing with friends because cross gamechat isnt there.”

What the hell are you going on about?…Cross game chat means you aren’t playing the same game in the first place. If you’re that anti-social that you can’t send a real quick text to ask someone to join you (they’ve got them automated these days so you don’t even have to type if you don’t want to) cross game chat won’t help you.

@ Death
Even if we find it useless, they have the right to ask for it man, after all they put as a way to see what the users ask for

Death8u4u said:

“just plain ignorant of what the PSN users want.”

Says the guy speaking of the “community” while he’s speaking of the minority. There are very few people that actually have headsets in the first place. Even fewer people than that will bother with cross game chat or even want it in the first place.

The COMMUNITY getting an update would be the bandwidth cap raised or something of that nature, where anyone with an internet connection would benefit from it.

any news about “hidden features” on this update any1???

Ultimate_Tryant, they do have the right to ask for it. They should not have the right to bash EVERY blog post with constant rampages about how they “need” cross game chat. Furthermore, I have every right to post my complaints against such a feature as I don’t want to see it come to this platform because some people think it’s unfair the Xbox has it.

Thanks sony, keep up the good work..
please pay no heed to the other people who are complaining about some useless things.
I think you’re doing a great job!

Ultimate_Tyrant said:

June 7th, 12:24 am

Sony if you actually read this, put the update on your blog for download when you post the update info!


June 7th, 12:32 am

Stop crying about cross game chatting nobody cares that your only friends are online get some real friends and stop complaining about useless crap.


June 7th, 12:35 am

Sony good job with all you’ve done so far but what’s with the optional update that you HAVE to get to go online.

I was wondering what the update was for. Thanks for the post.

Gosh, another 10 minute update!!!!! I’m seriously considering switching to xbox………………………………………jk

oBlossom92o said:

June 7th, 12:54 am

Honestly, I had an Xbox 360 and cross game chat wasn’t all that great. But still good for those who liked it. I used it often but because my friends insisted on it. I hate how you;re locked in and can’t chat with the rest of the lobby. However, it is useful when you wanna have a private conversation during a game. There are pros and cons to this but I personally think Sony should spend their resources towards in-game music. (Seriously Sony, you have better music saving flexibility but offer limited purpose for it.)

I was hoping Sony would reveal their plans to add features to the PS3 in their E3 conference. I was also hoping that Sony would take the PSN outage time to try to implement cross-game chat into the PSN infrastructure so it could be added in easily after they restored PSN. If the PSV has it, let’s hope they patch it in once it comes out. Otherwise I fear we’ll never see it until the PS4 comes out…

Skater_Ricky said:

Dear Sony Development Team,

This is Skater_Ricky Firmware Wish List That I hope
SONY can put these features 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 Better Yet “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
(Part 1)
Thanks Skater_Ricky :D

Skater_Ricky said:

June 7th, 12:55 am

Dear Sony Development Team,

? 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 like “RSS Feed: for PlayStation Blog.
? Music Player Visual (Bigger Album Art) while playing with a nice Music Player Visuals. And Differnt Visual’s within the Music Player.
? 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)
(Part 2)
Thanks Skater_Ricky :D

Dear Sony Development Team,

I like to see us ALL get a Kick A$$ Party System.

This Party System Can Add People From your Friend List or Have Open Party Invite to Add People In a Window were all Can Chat Cross Game or Invite Each in a Game to Play Online togeather.

And In this Party System you have the Option to Call a Friend 1 on 1 and Chat Privately While Playing Other Games or be Playing the Same Game.
(Part 3)
Thanks Skater_Ricky :D

Skater_Ricky said:

June 7th, 12:58 am

Dear Sony Development Team,

Or in a Group of 8 Friends or non Friends to Chat About Gaming Kinda Like Video Chat But with out the Function of Video.

And In this System it would have Options to Send ANY GAME Invite to a PSN Friend to Play that game you Choose to Play Online.

When they Accpet it will Send them to your Party and in the Party Box there PSN ICON will Show up and they have the Optoin to Chat Via Text or Voice Chat.

(Part 4)
Thanks Skater_Ricky :D

go eat a d**k if u want cross chat

Skater_Ricky said:

June 7th, 1:02 am

Dear Sony Development Team,

When Everyone is Ready they Will Have the Option to Launch the Game Once the Game is Loaded or Even While the Game is Loading They can Chat Via Text or Voice Even While Waiting for Games to Load up to Play.

Once in the Game the Game will use the Party System to Use as a main Source of Playing Online Gaming.

Make this happen SONY (Make.Belive)

(Part 5)
Thanks for Reading Skater_Ricky,

The question is, what will they hide inside the update that they don’t tell us about. They’ve done it before.

Skater_Ricky said:

June 7th, 1:07 am

@214 “DeMon314noMeD”

You have something more intelligent to say then that?

At least I have ideas in my head then childish words.

And Plus If you haven’t heard by now its a #1 Request by PlayStation Gamers not just myself. You can find it in the PlayStation Blog Share.

I just put my two cents in how Id like to see the Party System work.

Thanks for Reading and Good Night Gamers and Readers.

L.A. Noire ending sucked i can say i wasted my time with this game for it just to end with nothing…. ps. xbox sucks too and xbox get off the sack of Call of Duty by giving them extra money so that you guys get the map packs first im still going to buy mw3 but im going to be on Battle Field 3 more just because of that…. rockstargames step your game up :D

meloislegend said:

June 7th, 1:08 am

Well, honestly cross game chat wouldn’t be that great. But at least in game music, custom avatars, PS2 game compatible and the ability to create and edit folders to organize your music/fotos/games would be three good options for an update.

FatCap47 said:

June 7th, 1:11 am

First they did it to Red Dead Redemption and now they [DELETED] L.A. Noire… not cool

AzzeTo said:

June 7th, 1:14 am

Add me on PSN if you have RE5 and are willing to help me beat it on normal. And give me all the ammo if you already beat the game once :D, the main ammo I need is handgun and sniper, possibly shotgun. I beat the game two times before, but formatted my PS3 each time, and now I want to do it a 3rd time ( not going to format pS3 again ) so please, add me “AzzeTo” ONLY ADD IF YOU HAVE A HEADSET

FatCap47 said:

June 7th, 1:15 am

ps. its stupid when that rapper witch i think no one knows his name says like red dead redemption in that BMF song by Rick Ross da Boss rap is just stupid now a days… screw you guys im going home.. PlayStation Home that is still have love for you guys at rockstargames and make Bully for the ps3 that is all :D

ShiranaiJittai said:

I am not knocking the update as I fully support Playstation protecting their own products, and their customers security, but do not say an update is optional if it isn’t. The only “option” available is to be able to log in to to playstation network or not. That is in no way optional. Just watched your conference throughly impressed with most of it though I feel like knowing about most of the major titles beforehand diminshed the wow factor. Great price point for the PS: Vita though. I was not expecting that, and will be placing my preorder tomorrow.

N8SAB3R_PLUR said:

Cross game chat, who really needs it, if you wanna talk to other friends playing a different game then suck up and play that game with them or get them to play yours. Sony your doing an amazing job don’t listen to those who say your not they are all xbox fanboys who want the playstation to be an xbox. PSN FOR LIFE add me for black ops my psn is my name on here lol :P oh another thing any word on when Final Fantasy XIII Versus will be out? PSN all day everyday if I could afford it everything I own would be a SONY product, I love you guys…. LG CAN GO TO [DELETED]

ShiranaiJittai said:

June 7th, 1:23 am

It was also incredibly ironic to announce Cross Game chat for the PS: Vita but not the PS3, a question is this because Microsoft bought Skype? I expected Xbox to explain why they bought Skype at the conference they didn’t so that leads me to believe the only reason they did so was to stop you guys from being able to. On the hand evil on the other hand a smart business move. I am actually not a big advocate of cross game chat personally all I want is a much much larger friends list, but if you tell someone you are going to give them something, and then you don’t deliver that really doesn’t look good. I have been told directly, and indirectly many times in the last two years that cross game chat is for sure definitely coming yet I have seen nothing. Again I myself personally don’t care about it I just care the fact that quite a few others do care, and were told they would have it, and still don’t.

ShiranaiJittai said:

June 7th, 1:26 am

@SkaterRicky they won’t read that or if they do it won’t be the people making the actual decisions that read it they actually have a section for the site for that, and almost everything you have mentioned has already been suggested long, long ago. bottom right side of this page (at least on a PC browser comments open to everyone but don’t be a jerk. last phrase in last column is a link where you can submit your ideas. (Idea’s suggested by others have been implemented in the past that is where you want to submit them but most of them exist already.

KNUBB said:

June 7th, 1:31 am

Not gonna lie I had my hopes up for party chat considering it is a feature on the PS Vita.

metalgearfloppy said:

June 7th, 1:34 am

Cross game chat needs to happen sooner or later, lets face it, the voice comms on certain titles are pretty poor and temperamental to say the least.

Would it be so hard to have the current voice chat on the system running in the background at all times? At least that’d be a start….

TaterSalad42 said:

I think this patch seriously screwed me over. I was on earlier today and was playing games fin with no problem, but when I downloaded the patch, I immediately went to the browser to see what the patch was…..And I froze……Turned the system off, rebooted and tried again, and the browser froze me again. so I didnt mind anymore turned it off again, restarted and went to netflix. I watched a mvie and when I turned it off, the screen went dark but my system was still running. so I unplugged it for about 30 mins. Turn it on again and apparently my damn harddrive system is corrupted. I hit the restore button 4 times so far and its done its thing with the loading bar and it reset itself at the start it keeps asking me to restore my damned harddrive. notice how all this happend after I downloaded this stupid patch….

Part 1: Srry, for the Double Posts, just wouldn’t all fit…

Honestly, WTF… Let me break down this entire 5 page thing for ya guys…

1. I’ve signed-in without have required to Update, only Updated, cause I liked the change, if you are required to, then it must be your PS3 Model #, causing it, not the Update, heh, & if thats the case, then i’m srry, but thats just the way, the cookie crumbles, heh…
2. Update does not fix anything, it’s just a title change, lOlz…
3. Cross Game Chat? Why would anyone want that? I’ve never used it, or heard of it before, except that people want it, but why? You can already text chat over a Chat Room while in game on the XMB… As for Voice chat, you have the option to Voice chat with your friends in game, maybe not other games, but in a specific game, yes…
4. Why do you want to chat with people not in the game your playing, maybe you should switch games, & not waste your fellow teammates time in a game, just so you could chat with others…

GuRuAsaki2098 said:

June 7th, 1:52 am

5. Background XMB Music is already supported, no reason to ask for it, plus, that is not up to Sony, anyways, only the Company that makes the game can allow that kinda support…
6. You can’t use Custom Background Music in a game supporting any kinda form of Voice Chat, & honestly, i’d much rather have Custom Background Music, then Cross-Game Chat, srry…
7. If you have a problem with a text message durring game, either wait for a safe point to accure game, & leave a message, or wait till you leave the Online Game, I mean seriously, how hard can that be to do, I do it all the time & never had any trouble at all…
8. You can chat with multiple people over a Chat Room weather it’s voice, or text, even though you don’t know them, just have your friends invite friends, if you really want to meet them, heh…

GuRuAsaki2098 said:

June 7th, 1:53 am

Part 2: Srry, for the Double Posts, just wouldn’t all fit…

Finally, you ask why should people who don’t want it request that it not be added, because those who would abuse it, would then annoy those who would not want it, & those people would get mad…

(Calls Up Friend In A Game, They Ignore the Call, Friend Keeps Calling, They Get Annoyed, & Deletes them…)

Come on, all that Cross-Game chat crap would cause is nothing, but annoyances durring Game Play, & bad Team Work durring games… So many people would be mad, I mean it’s not bad enough that people have to annoy everyone with loud mouths, & yelling, & crap no one wants to hear, that we actually want to allow people to annoy other people who aren’t even playing the same game with them, WTF is wrong with you people… Who wants crappy local convo to go global, (correction: Crappy local VOICE convo to go global), Not I said Bob, !o_O!

GuRuAsaki2098 said:

June 7th, 1:54 am

Part 3: Srry, for the Double Posts, just wouldn’t all fit…

P. S.: I dun want it, not simply because I dun want it, but I dun want it simply because I dun want people to bug me with voice calls while i’m trying to play a game, & for the fact I want my team mates 100% focused on the game at hand, & not some convo about what them, & a friend are going to do the next day…

Anyways, if I missed anything plz let me know… Oh, ya, Trophy Sync. may not be in the background, however there is another method, not as good, but it does work… Just goto someones Profile, click Compare Trophies, & walla, it’ll auto-Sync. your Trophies, even though, your still in a game, or PS HOME, trust me, it works, :D

On a side note, I do want Chat Rooms Updated however, the stupid Text Chat needs to allow more room to type durring Text Chat, honestly, almost every thing I say requires me to hit enter to create a new line, before finishing my sentences… Come on, we need more text room on zeh Text Line Space given, heh…

GuRuAsaki2098 said:

June 7th, 1:54 am

Btw, after we receive Cross-Game Chat, next you’ll want video chat durring game, I wouldn’t mind that, but geeze, honestly, there is so much more we need then anything ta do with Cross Game/ Video in Game Chat…

Which by the way, reason Sony would never do it, is cause from the start Sony has never wanted PS3 to be used for Socializing, they refuse to call PS HOME a Social Network, & limit our friends lists to a given number, for that purpous, so why would they ever give us Cross-Game/In Game Video Chat, especially when they already said they won’t give it to us in the first place?

Now does anyone Agree, or support my Opinion? If not, go play X-Box, & leave the serious gaming to us loyal PlayStation Fans, & quit wasting everyone’s time, lOl!!!

June 7th, 1:55 am

Xbox sucks, not only do you have to pay for your internet twice, but you also have a system that dies within a year or so. Oh and not to mention that you have to replace your batteries in your controller all the time. so anyone who wants to trade their ps3 for one go for it, they suck.

TonyQ09 said:

June 7th, 2:14 am

great, Sony. nothing seemed to be wrong before this update. now i was playing infamous and on like the 19th mission the volume went out. and it happened twice now. wth? is it the update or is it the free game that messed up?

Zorvan said:

June 7th, 2:16 am

@233 +plasticmonkeycra

Really? 360’s all die within a “year or so”? Then why have I had mine for over 3 years now without ANY problems at all? No overheating, no “red ring of death”, nothing. Gee, guess you’re wrong.

And you have to replace your batteries all the time? Funny. I just plug my wireless controller into the 360 and it recharges just fine, same way I do the PS3 controller. Haven’t bought batteries for it in those 3+ years either.
Gee, guess you were wrong again.

Oh, but the first PS3 I bought? “Yellow light of death” right out of the box when I got it home, had to return it for another one. Gee, guess that means going by your logic noone should buy a PS3.

Zapix said:

June 7th, 2:29 am

It amazes me how PS3 fanboys defending the lack of cross game chat are so narrow minded, just like PC gamers and their keyboards and mice. It only degrades the overall view of the people in the community, makes them look like elitist [DELETED] who see it as “my way or you can do piss off and die.” People like that who turned sites like psxtreme into boated fanboy sites not even worthy of looking at for general PS3 news. Stop ruining your own community fanboys. It only hurts what you love by acting the way you all do.

that-acmilan-guy said:

June 7th, 2:35 am

Stability, why won’t I update? Also please release notes of any specific titles?

Zapix said:

June 7th, 2:37 am

As for cross game chat, Sony can only benefit from it.
But according to you elitist fangirls…

Player A is playing God of War 3. His buddy Player B just picked up Killzone 3, and Player C is playing Fat Princess. But they’re not allowed to talk, because you think that’s just stupid. Yes, because every game has multiplayer, and everyone enjoys talking to strangers, or listening to [DELETED] sing over their mic (seriously, [DELETED]!). More importantly, while you offer options like skype, not everyone lives in a 3×3 bedroom with a computer right next to them. There is a thing called a house that people do live in. But hey, why compromise needing a ps3 and a pc, when a 360 or PC already offers what a PS3 cannot? Hence some people think the 360 is looking pretty good. Can’t say I blame them.

Carl-G said:

June 7th, 2:57 am

Can’t SONY do that ‘Party chat’ on the PS3 as well? I couldn’t care less about chatting really but it would stop the moaners going on about that cross-game chat rubbish(if its the same thing)

I would like to download this update from the site, so I can try to fix my PS3 through manual update.
