Guys.. Cross Game Chat = Not happening, they said it cannot be done with the ps3 and never will be, I’m sure they will create awesome stuff for a 4.0 update..maybe even beyond. Do not sweat the small stuff, everybody. Just be thankful that you are playing your PS3 and having the certain freedom of online gaming and gaming within and not being bombarded with hackers to shut us down again and ruining the PlayStation experience and be thankful that this is free and useful.

Is it just me or is the PS3 faster with this update? Scrolling through the menus much faster and pictures opening picture folders much faster.. that’s very weird but GOOD

HAY SONY! How about an update that lets me REMOVE all the UNWANTED CRAP from my PS3 system like the netflix install button or the ENTIRE TV/VIDEO Services XMB section?
I am sick and tired of all these “ADDS” being forced in my face when all i want to do is PLAY GAMES!
The last i checked you have now STOLEN over 100Mb of my HD space and i CAN NOT even delete this CRAP at all!
I have better uses for the 100Mb you are wasting on my Hard Drive like PICS or music or even a small video. Give me back control of my System! If i want to delete some thing from my system I SHOULD BE ABLE TO! It’s mine, i paid for it not you!

Rodney773 said:

September 20th, 5:03 am

We the consumers should have the right to remove want WE do not want from our systems!!!
If it were not for the online game play i would have RIPPED OUT the LAN cable long ago just so i wouldn’t have to tolerate all the “buy this” Adds shoved in my face EVERY TIME i turn on the system!!
You want to sell stuff and i get that.. But isn’t that what the PSN store is for? and it already has it’s own section so why do we need the tv/video services section?! It is wasted space AND it just helps SLOW DOWN the PS3 LOADING at start up!
STOP EMULATING MICROSOFT AND BE BETTER THAN THEM! Do not nickle and dime us to death either!

a new update to counter attack the piracy measures! hell yea :) awesome Sony ….update the store early today please xD

ItaChu said:

September 20th, 5:05 am

@Rodney773 lol yeah thats true that “xxxxx Is now available buy now” message is pretty useless xD it should be removed, and make whats on top of it bigger :)


September 20th, 5:17 am

@174- Umm, Xbox has smaller demo sizes because PS3 looks better…. PS3’s downloading speed is fine.

Whizz83 said:

September 20th, 5:18 am

network stability is a good thing, i may help all thse games out there that have issues with staying connected to the host, like call of duty.

Whizz83 said:

September 20th, 5:20 am

@ rodney, have you ever bought a phone that came with default software, you can’t delete that either. most manufacturers of electronics do that, like a netflix compatible tv, you can’t just remove the netflix portion.

station3fever said:

September 20th, 5:27 am

The ps3 cannot do cross chat! So stop asking people!! Maybe in ps4 ;)

WOW for that MINOR update, it took me 30 minutes of MY valued time. This reminds me of Sega, i wanted a dreamcast, but i got dreamcrushed. Like i say to them: “dreamcrushed… thanks sega.” Well what i say to you: “annoying updates that take forever for no reason… thanks sony”

Rodney773 said:

September 20th, 5:48 am

BUT Netflix did NOT come in my PS3 system (120Gig ver.) it was NOT in my system already so yes i should be able to REMOVE it COMPLETELY from my PS3 System.
By definition any software that is put into a computerized system that can NOT be removed by the owner is MALWARE and/or SPYWARE as defined by USA federal LAW.
Why is every one so willing to let some one else TAKE over control of their property!
When you buy some thing, ANY THING form a store you OWN IT! it is your to do as you wish with it but SONY has stepped over that boundry and is now FORCING US to keep unwanted UNNEEDED programs on OUR systems. If i want to buy some thing on line i will use my PC or i will visit the playstation store. (wich by the way is in 5 different spots on the XMB now as it is)
I don’t and will NEVER use netflix, music unlimited or ANY of the pay per view “services” so why shouldn’t i be able to remove them COMPLETELY from my system to save HD space and speed up my loading time?

Rodney773 said:

September 20th, 5:48 am

I am not asking for the return of the PS2 compatability or the other operating system ability. I am just asking for my RIGHT to REMOVE unwanted software from my system BACK! and you should be demanding it back as well!
As far as TV’s with the netflix and other crap installed in it. I JUST DON’T BUY THEM. for me it is a reason NOT to buy it. if a company is not trust worthy enough to not force advertising in our faces then they are not worth investing in!

ccrogers15 said:

September 20th, 5:50 am

remove the unwanted ads and crap on OUR system WE paid YOU over 300 dollars for! And my system specifically on the box said “160 GB” I get it home and its highest capacity is 149GB! WTF? I dont want netflix, hulu or playstation plus ads on my system. Playstation plus is a joke anyways. WOW pay 19.99 for 1 month of a service you get 3% off games and stuff. WOO. And you get free games but only get to keep them if you renew for PSplus. PSplus is a major joke. God sony, we should ALL be PS plus, are they your loyal customers? yes. Are we? YES. Because we chose to buy your PS3 instead of a 360 or WII. Give us the same treatment you give PSplus! We want free games and 60 minute trials. You treat the people who paid 300 or more for your system like crap. I can remember the welcome back package, you chose low boring rated games, or games YOU KNEW people had. So many people asked for an alternative due to they had those games, but what do you do? Sit on your buts and watch the PS3 sales go up. Thats all you care for is money.

ccrogers15 said:

September 20th, 5:51 am

oh and i bet this update did nothing. Fallout 3 and NV are the most issue prone games on the PS3 besides the YLOD/RROD causer uncharted. FIX fallout 3 and NV!

ccrogers15 said:

September 20th, 5:53 am

oh yea and my system is supposed to have 160GB, but it came with max 149 GB, and it should have other OS. WHERE IS IT? Your lucky i cant sue you. But wait, if i ever get perma banned, oh yea, its sueing time!

scratchmybut96 said:

September 20th, 5:54 am

Hey playstation you need to fix your trophy sync it does’nt let me upload my trophies so you have to fix that or im going to switch to xbox360 got that

Rodney773 said:

September 20th, 5:57 am

Keep in mind the REAL reason we all bought our PS3’s
We did NOT not them for SHOPPING!
We bought our “GAME SYSTEMS” for GAMING!
remember what that is SONY?! GAMING as in playing video games to get AWAY from real life for a few hours and NOT watch commercials!
If i want to be sold crap all day i would just watch TV or listen to the radio or even go out side and read billboards all day! and we all know we don’t need to buy a video gaming system for that…(HINT!)

RisingPhoenix512 said:

September 20th, 5:59 am

good. im tired of seeing my games crash on occasion

Rodney773 said:

September 20th, 6:07 am

Stop asking for the PS2 compatablity to be returned to your systems, IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!
Because if they didn’t remove it in the first place Sony couldn’t RESELL you all the PS2 titles AGAIN in “HD” with trophies!
And we all know that’s more important than costumer satisfaction!

Rodney773 said:

September 20th, 6:12 am

ALL of my posts are “HINTS” for the next system update. please use them wisely and remember if we the consumer are not happy with OUR PS3’s we WON’T be buying the PS4 when it comes out… Keep THAT in mind when you think of “future sales”!

I remember when updates were cool and brought value to the ps3 now it’s just pretty much crap and system stability seems as if sony has pretty much abandonned the ps3 as far innovation and working on next gen products to come cause nothing new or innovative has came to the system. just pretty much be happy with the games you get and be quiet if it’s up to sony. thats why they changed those Terms of Service so we can’t rally up and sue them for their failures and what not. Sony and MS are no different it’s turning out but atleast MS will give their users some nice features to their system.

hrbrt7 said:

September 20th, 6:33 am

@Rodney773 lol all true though.. XD they only care for profit. Resell games in HD, ps plus membership, and not getting the full game because of the ** add-on content..

pyrodragon5 said:

September 20th, 7:01 am

the auto update/upload are have been working fine for me, wouldnt have known about the update until i tried to sign on PSN

@ccrogers15 first, the manufacturers of hard drives usually round up or down, so you could have a 158 GB HDD or 165 GB HDD but it would say 160GB. also what they are advertiseing on the box is a completely empty HDD, then it gets formatted for the PS3 and that uses some of the memory on it, just like any other computer.

Sephir007 said:

@Rodney773 @ccrogers15

Some people see a lot of benefits that brings PSPLUS, and like it’s name says it’s an additional service over the free online and services already offered to all customers, nobody is forcing it to you, so please stop complaining about it.

About the system features I want more of them, keep in mind that the PS3 it’s a multimedia device not only a game device and a lot of people are happy for that, sony it’s just adding features for a lot of audiences not only gamers, come on, think about other people that use the system, you are not the only customer sony has..

Anyway you can ask nicely about customization of XMB, but not to ask for the removal of features that other people like and use..

I might have been right. Battlefield 3 Beta date was announced for the 29th. Close Beta will be the 27th. Beta lasts until the 10th of October.

Yet another insignificant update to protect the rights of Sony & Playstation, and to ultimately eliminate our rights as gamers and subscribers to their mediocre service.

SCoopat said:

how about some APPS!?? Spotify , ESPN3, HBO GO

Hope it fixes the Automatic Update problem. It doesn’t seem to work for me :(!

Fedast said:

September 20th, 7:21 am

Will this update fix the frequent updates?

Crashma said:

September 20th, 7:29 am

what a lame update. no big changes at all i guess thats why it went from 3.70 to 3.72

pugmugger said:

September 20th, 7:59 am

Is this fix going to fix the network errors and lagging you get when playing online gaming like kz3. it is starting to suck being kicked off with your whole clan. the post are piling up read some and look into it.

Rodney773 said:

September 20th, 8:00 am

I am not asking Sony to remove their “adds” from ALL ps3’s.
I am demanding my right to be able to REMOVE any and ALL SOFTWARE that is on MY ps3 that i feel i do not need or want.
If you where on a PC and a company installed the same crap on you PC’s desk top and you could NOT remove it you would be PISSED about it, so why should it be any different for a gaming system you buy?

I never said i wanted it removed from ALL PS3’s i just want to be able to remove it from MY PS3!
This is the very reason hackers exist!
they hack a system so it will run the way they want it to because companies feel they have the right to tell you the consumer what you can and can’t do with your own property!

Lets face it Sony is BULLING US with a new user “agreement” every time they want to change some thing and if you say no you lose ALL online gaming and even the use of a system YOU PAID FOR.

Stop including everyone in your comments, it’s getting annoying now. Not everyone agrees with what you’re saying, including myself.

Is there ever going to be Internet Radio on PS3 ? We’ve got it on PSP but it’d be nice to have it on PS3 too.

DarkNova78 said:

September 20th, 8:05 am

Awesome update! Automatic Update works without a hitch. Thanks Again!

Rodney773 said:

September 20th, 8:13 am

Well if you didn’t buy your PS3 for gaming they why did you buy it?
Please enlighten us…
Did you spend $300 just to watch bluray movies when their are much cheaper BR players out there that can also offer things like subscription services like netflix?
I think not! no one is THAT DUMB! or are you?

Do you really like having to look at non deletable SOFTWARE INSTALL ICONS even when you are NOT ONLINE?
I don’t think so and neither do a lot of other PS3 owners so why should we be able to remove them at our own will if we feel we don’t want or need them?
How about an option to OPT OUT of installing the added crap like that with our system updates?
if you go to install adobe flash player you have the “option” NOT to install the google search bar they include with it…

September 20th, 8:17 am

@Rodney you are so ignorant. The PS3 is not just a gaming system. maybe YOU dont remember how sony envisioned the PS3 to be. quit your whining. if you only want to play games on it, then don’t go farther left then the game section on the XMB. Sony can put whatever they want on your system. and yeah “i paid for it.” but all the stuff inside of it is Intellectual Property of Sony (and IBM). all you paid for is to be allowed to take it home and use it. but, THERE ARE RULES! and @CCRogers15 PS3 requires HDD Space to run. larger HDD= more space taken. its like going and buying a PC with 320GB HDD. you only get 280 to use.

With the last update, my computer would no longer update nightly with PlayStation Plus.

Last night it worked. Downloaded updates, and uploaded a few weeks’ worth of saved games.

However, I still have a problem where — I am not sure when or how — my “Internet Start” setting for Remote Play gets turned off. My theory is it happens during the nightly PS+ update.

SnDin9 said:

September 20th, 8:24 am

Just in time for BF3 BETA, woo hoo!

Smokalicous said:

September 20th, 8:26 am

Having problems updating. Its not letting me it says Error occurred during the download operation. A connection to the server cannot be established. (80710723) what so i do??? my internet works fine… NEED HELP please and thank you!

Rodney773 said:

September 20th, 8:31 am

but to get to the gaming section i HAVE TO go over the TV/VIDEO “adds” section to get to it and WHAM their are install add/apps i am forced to see EVERY TIME.
GUESS WHAT! they were not there before the last major “update”! (if you can even call installing add ware section an update)
If Sony want to “update” my system to fix know operating problems, thats fine by me.
BUT to just install CRAP that you can’t remove or even hide for the sake of “if we keep it in their face long enough they will try it at least for a month” advertising is [DELETED]
Like i said before, I am NOT asking for Sony to remove it from ALL systems, I am just DEMANDING my right to be able to REMOVE it AT MY OWN OPTION!
But Sony has STOLEN that right by MAKING us agree to an “agreement” or they will shut off our systems usability BECAUSE THEY SAY SO.
and since you can not use you PS3 until you “agree” to their terms you have no choice but to click yes!

Smokalicous said:

September 20th, 8:35 am

ok i think its goin too update now thank you!! finally went threw after 10 times or more of tryin i was gettin really frustrated lol…

gagjm said:

September 20th, 8:38 am

Same with me, except I’ve tried 14 times and its still not working.

Rodney773 said:

September 20th, 8:39 am

I am not asking for any thing that should not have been in place in the first place.
Or how about a “NO THANK YOU” check box that removes the item for us?
How about a way to TURN OFF that “news ticker” at the top right of our screens?
or an option to only be notified when you receive a message and NOT every time some one logs in that is on your friends list.

Can we please have the ability to change our PSN ID without losing downloads or trophies ? The Japanese accounts have it why not the American accounts as well ?

saab01 said:

September 20th, 8:53 am

So i go to turn on my PS3 today and notice that the new firmware was not downloaded. Ever since the last Firmware 3.70 the Automatic updates has not been working correctly. Hopefully now the issue is resolved.
