Firmware Update


UPDATE: Thanks for all of the feedback. Just a
quick update, 3.40 has been released. In addition, PlayStation Plus is
now available in the PlayStation Store.
We’re thrilled to hear that many of you are excited about the five
star rating feature. This feature is retroactive for all of your
PlayStation Store activity, so you can jump into the store right now and
start rating all of your past purchases. Look for a “Rate” button on
the product pages.
The PSN App on Facebook is also live. You can find it here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Hi everyone, once again we’re adding new features to the PlayStation
3 (PS3) system via firmware
update to ensure we’re bringing you the best, most comprehensive
entertainment experience possible. PS3 system software update (v3.40)
will be available soon, adding the PlayStation
Plus subscription, enhancements to the connection between your
PlayStation Network and Facebook
accounts and more. Additionally, we’ll be launching system software
update (v6.30) for the PSP
(PlayStation Portable) system simultaneously with PS3 system software
update (v3.40), adding PlayStation Plus compatibility as well as other
new features.
We’ve gone ahead and provided a few highlights from PS3 firmware
update (v3.40) below:

  • PlayStation Plus: PlayStation Network users will be
    able to purchase membership to PlayStation
    Plus; a new subscription service on the PlayStation Network that
    provides you with new options to expand and enhance your gaming
    experience and enable you to gain an exclusive set of features and
    content. Friendly reminder, all of you PlayStation Network users will
    continue to have free access to PlayStation Network’s unmatched and
    expanding suite of new and exclusive features while PlayStation Plus
    subscribers will gain access to an exclusive and expanding set of gaming
    features, content and functionality.
  • Photo Gallery: A new network based photo sharing
    feature is now available on the Photo Gallery. The enhancement allows
    you to upload, browse and comment on photos on Facebook
    and Picasa
    Web Album. You can also opt to share your photos between your
    PlayStation Network friends as well as print photos from Photo Gallery.
  • Video Editor & Uploader: Video Editor and
    Uploader is a new function found on the XrossMediaBar (XMB), which
    enables you to edit, save and upload video files stored on the PS3
    system to sites such as Facebook or YouTube.
  • Five Star Rating Support: Users can rate the
    PlayStation Store content they have purchased with one to five star
    ratings.
  • Power Save Settings: The default setting for PS3
    System Auto-Off will be set at 2 hours, providing you with additional
    power save options and further improving power save features on the PS3
    system.

In addition to the latest features introduced in PS3 system software
update (v3.40), a separate, new PlayStation Network application on
Facebook.com will be made available. This builds upon what was
previously launched with Trophies and the ability to publish purchases
from the PlayStation Store. Now you can further integrate your
PlayStation Network and Facebook accounts with this new application.
The application allows you to display your PlayStation Network profile
on your Facebook account, find out which of your Facebook friends have a
PSN account and send them a PlayStation Network friend request, view
your PSN friends’ online status and add the PlayStation Network
application tab to your Facebook user profile.

I've often wondered why it did that... What with the Ps3 supposed to have eight processors all working individually and that you'd think it would quite comfortably load up a game and open a damn Psn message at the same time. Rolling Eyes Laughing

Oh no, my 60GB PS3 is even more obsolete now. Laughing

At least Sony announced a price drop finally. Hopefully this brings Sony more sales.

Is there some actual benefit to it being thinner? What exactly did they remove to make it so? Will this decrease/increase the (rare) problems with overheating?

Personally, I like a console that can kill someone if you drop it on them. Worked for the X-box.

No, no. You rig up a pulley thing. You know, like they use to do with pianos on the cartoons. All that remains for the trap is a big X and a sign that says "Free KOTOR".

This 10,000 times over, though supposedly they're not finished with it yet - they must've wanted to get it done before the Slim went on sale. I like the iPlayer link, plus Trophies and the overall interface is far sleeker (apart from the Friends list of course) than the original Smile

I suppose I dont mind the new update. Does look nicely updated. I dont like how the intro screen uses the new font though. Also, whenever you start the game the old Playstation 3 logo/font doesnt show either.

The main thing I care about though......the new themes. Dayum those are going to be sexy. Cant wait to start seeing some sweet ones!

Only with laser ears.

Back To Topic
Does anyone else feel like Sony is really trying to turn the entire XMB into a commercial? I mean, having 3 separate entrances into the PSN store doesn't really get in the way, but it isn't really needed either.
Man, they better make some very good themes if they want my forgiveness!

Side note: Custom themes would be pretty sweet.

Have you seen the videos on the store yet, from the press conference at "Whatever-con" ?

The theme they showed had an animated wallpaper... I'm wondering if there will be Dev-kits released for people to make their own? Thinking

PostSubject: PS3 Firmware (v3.21) Update   Sun Mar 28, 2010 9:03 pm

PS3 Firmware (v3.21) Update

Posted by Patrick Seybold // Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

The next system software update for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) system will be released on April 1, 2010 (JST), and will disable the “Install Other OS” feature that was available on the PS3 systems prior to the current slimmer models, launched in September 2009. This feature enabled users to install an operating system, but due to security concerns, Sony Computer Entertainment will remove the functionality through the 3.21 system software update.

In addition, disabling the “Other OS” feature will help ensure that PS3 owners will continue to have access to the broad range of gaming and entertainment content from SCE and its content partners on a more secure system.

Consumers and organizations that currently use the “Other OS” feature can choose not to upgrade their PS3 systems, although the following features will no longer be available;

* Ability to sign in to PlayStation Network and use network features that require signing in to PlayStation Network, such as online features of PS3 games and chat
* Playback of PS3 software titles or Blu-ray Disc videos that require PS3 system software version 3.21 or later
* Playback of copyright-protected videos that are stored on a media server (when DTCP-IP is enabled under Settings)
* Use of new features and improvements that are available on PS3 system software 3.21 or later

For those PS3 users who are currently using the “Other OS” feature but choose to install the system software update, to avoid data loss they first need to back-up any data stored within the hard drive partition used by the “Other OS,” as they will not be able to access that data following the update.

Additional information about PS3 firmware updates, including v3.21 (once it becomes available), can be found here:
