Monday, 31st August 2009 11:52 GMT By Patrick Garratt


VG247 has learnt that PS3 Firmware 3.0 was released to devs last week ahead of a confirmed September 1 launch.

The feature-set has well-documented, as you can see here.

Dynamic themes, PS Store shortcuts and more will all be added.

Get ready with the ‘net connections, folks. Morning UK time is a favourite for updates to go live.

    No one knows, but that’s safe bet, games1001hq.

    There’s apparently a lot of behind the scenes improvements aswell (e.g. browser etc), so it does indeed seem a light update according to that video.

    Hopefully this will fix the slow wlan of the ps3 otherwise i have no idea how they want to start streaming movies in realtime, this november.

    @5 They are not mean to be streaming in realtime, but you to be able to start watching them while they are downloading to your hard drive. It’s not exactly the same.

    If your PS3 wireless is slow turn try turning off media sharing. It bogs down the connection.

    yes media sharing disconnects you a lot while just being idle on psn too. great feature but it has its own pro and cons

    Menuda puta mierda de actualización.

    Well, now I relaxed myself swearing in my own language I will be more reasonable in English. Absolutely useless crap, with only a pair of changes some will like in functions (bitstream and “hdmi and optic” at the same time), and enough and ugly stetic changes that don’t leave us modify (too big font, grey boxes, unnecessary ads…). It’s just a PS3Slim marketing shit.

    its terrible, sony wot you done? give us 2.80 back and leave it like that till the ps4. oh, and get a new firmware development team in or ask microsoft if you could borrow theirs because your current team have failed badly. you suck ass even more now, your pushin people away from liking the ps3 never mind tryin to get people to buy one. release GT5 before the console war is won by MICRO$OFT. (disaster)

    I thought there was some exaggeration here (well, other than from MC… who is a bit crazy.), but yeah, they’ve made a mess of it.
