  • And Please bring in the Cross Game Voice Chat :)

  • Any chance there will be any new features(in-game mic chat, crossgame invite, in-game XMB for ps one, ps2, dvd, etc)?

  • skype on ps3, please?!? it’s on the psp already but make it in-game for the ps3

  • Well we ever be able to hide our online status so we can just hop online for a couple of minutes without being sent hundreds of messages?

  • why?
    Why would you release a pointless firmware update and instead just wait to put it inside a bigger one that *hopefully matters*

    I dont understand the firmware.
    If the firmware team needs help to understand what the PS3 needs im free to be hired.

  • Are you all still working on PS1 BC? One of my favorite games(Chrono Cross) is still messed up :(

  • While Skype intergration would be GREAT. I think voice chat would be a far more wanted feature. Obviously neither are coming in the upcoming Firmware. Hope this one is good nevertheless!

  • A bigger update for E3 then? ;)

    +Bring back ps2 playback on the ps3 :)

  • Gee, are we going to get cross game messenger pigeons this time?

  • It’s gotta have some sort of feature otherwise it would just be 2.71, right?

  • Oooooh could we add more visuals to the music player too? ? ? ? Please ^_^

  • yes pls crossgame chat pls!!!!

  • No, im nearly 99.9% sure this will be pointless

  • this does make perfect timing with the story of zen pinball having video chat in game…

  • @King_DX

  • Cmon give us the real details

    Perhaps they had to make adjustments(free up some memory?) so some upcoming, unreleased games can run properly.

  • JUST BRING CROSS GAME VOICE CHAT ALREADY.

  • BTW, a few people seem to think this FW is going to bring new features…it’s not. You will notice nothing different. It’s either prep for the NEXT FW or a few network bug fixes. Don’t get your hopes up. folks.

  • Please, for the love of God, STOP WITH THESE USELESS UPDATES ALREADY

  • thanks for the heads up!

  • I hope it fixes all the STUPID words that are blocked in the text chat.

  • Well if I know Sony, there will most likely be something so big that its hidden from us in the release notes… If only my PS3 was still here =(

  • I agree with 18! I would like to see what was stated there and I would also like to see cataloging of blu-rays (dvd maybe) and games. The resume playing of blu-rays and dvds bettered. (When movie is removed and played again later.)

  • @22- How can you call it useless when you have NO IDEA what it’s about? :|

  • i was hoping for a big update around e3

  • Maybe we’re getting cross game horse and buggie messaging.

  • keep the updates coming

  • since psp firmware updates usually come out along side ps3 ones, what is the psp getting?
    “crosses fingers for ac-hoc party”

  • No, wait, I know what it is…

    Cross game morse code FTW!

  • Meh, well it’s getting closer to something bigger.

  • Thanks!

  • Will this firmware update fix Yakuza’s backwards compatibility issues? The first game freezes indefinitely at a certain part in the game. The backwards compatibility list shows all problems being fixed after a certain firmware update but it is wrong as I (and many others) have tried different things to see if we could get passed this and continue playing the game but the only thing that works is a game save which makes you miss a chunk of the storyline.

    It freezes right after the part where someone gets shot (don’t want to spoil) and then it shows who you are about to fight but it never loads.

  • Usually these precede a bigger update. E3 anyone?

  • Please fix the problems I have with the new chat room freezing when I try to setup a room. I can join a friends fine but setting my own just freezes my system.

  • hey anychance this firmware will update the ps2 games that will be allowed to play on the 80 gb backword compaidableish like devil summoner 2?

  • when you say that, it would be nice if you said which games it improved although with each update, the system seems to respond a little faster each time

  • stop making wack ass updates and give us ingame voice chat better avatars optimize the ingame xmb and let us customize our profiles and let us do somethin else with the trophies, fux playback no one plays ps2 nemore focus on that stuff to kick xbox ass man

  • @King_DX
    I totally agree with you King! That would be a wikked addition. Damn it gets annoying all the messages while you’re playin. Do somethin about that PStation

  • NICE I LOVE IT GOOD JOB! ^^

  • Will this also fix up some of the problems many of the users had with Cross-Game Text Chat?

  • Aww… I was hoping for more when I saw the title :( Oh well, 5/5 still because of your continued support :)

  • That description is so vague, why can’t you at least say what games it will effect and what it will fix? Or is this just another one of those fixes that plug holes in possible exploits?

  • When are we going to get a speed increase on XMB and automatic trophy syncing? How about full DivX 7 support?

    And if the battery indicator still covers up my freaking clock I’m going to smash a PSX with a hammer!

  • Please bring cross game voice chat!! :)

  • i suppose this destroys all hope of having a firmware update at E3 for voice chat, because its so close by, and sony does updates less frequently now :(
