It "improves system stability" and adds support or improves support for some Sony card reader.

What's this about an E-Reader for PS3?


It "improves system stability"

Yep, blocking the loophole that allows the PS2 hack

As for the card reader, has anyone confirmed this? Would be cool to just pop in/wave my credit card at the reader and pay for goods directly without keeping details stored online.

Expecting some

"OH mai gawd, another update?! Jesus, Sony, how many do you want? I updated it yesterday after not playing it for 6 months, and now I have to update again?! I only get 20 minutes to play every half a year, and when I turn my console on, I expect to play a game, not sit and watch a bar slowly fill. Final nail, PS4 will fail. Screw you Sony, you killed my dog."

topics in the next few days.

Store just got an update too(1.04). Hoping this makes it run better.


-_-

I really wish Sony would stop trying to compete with Origin to have the worst digital distribution store ever and just go back to the old store where you could find stuff and didn't have to download firmware updates.

Good job Titus O'Niel.

This update doesn't include being able to play PS2 games on your PS3, so go dig up your old PS2s, or download our PS2 Classics. -Sony

Ain't nobody got time fo dat!

Still waiting for that update that removes Singstar or atleast moves it to the game files just so every time I eject a game I don't have to listen to that annoying music with the 2 annoying people posing pretending they are singing.

Then again I live a lonely and depressed life and hate everyone so maybe it's just a problem for me.

apparently they freaken snuck in a patch called the NFC that makes the used games unplayable as a Beta test for the PS4. those damn *%*#$@#%&*%*&%$. They better take it off in the next patch. most of the games I have are used and it's not right they are doing that. if you're gonna pull that crap, pull it on the PS4 since I am not buying it anyway.

Does Sony usually make a statement ahead of time before releasing new firmware?
I'm installing now, and the fact that I can't find any information about this anywhere either makes me feel uneasy.....


no they dont. the update that removed otheros induced epic rage


The Update that removed the other OS was announced ahead of time.

"Guys seriously they will not block used games at all!&#65279; Used games are the main profit of companies like Game, Game stop and many others that sell used games. If they blocked used games on consoles then they shoot themselves in the foot as they cripple the guys that sell there consoles. This NFC reader is solely for catching people out who used pirated games so unless you pirate PS3 games then don't panic!!"

It's basically to read if the "Disc" is a real disc or a loaded disc.

Also, the current technlogy PS3/360 can't block used games because they don't have that kind of system implemented in them. Even IF they did, all you needed to do is buy every game from now on new but all of those pre 2013 can still be bought used. So it makes no sense that they would do it.
