View Full Version : Playstation 3 Firmware 3.0

09-01-2009, 03:14 AM
* Multi-Audio - Audio can now be output to multiple connectors simultaneously. You can set this option under [Settings] > [Sound Settings] > [Audio Multi Output].
* Video Content Playback - During Video content playback, you can now use the right stick to play content in slow playback, fast reverse, and fast forward.
* Settings Descriptions - Now below each setting option under the Settings tab on the XMB, there is now a brief description in small font.
* New Start Up Logo - Upon starting up your PS3, you will be greeted with the new ‘PS3′ Logo.
* Copy/Paste Function - There is now a copy/paste function for the web browser, and messages.
* Internet Connection Speed Test - Check your internet connection upload/download speed. Go to [Network Settings] > [Internet Connection Test]
* Internet Browser Screen Capture Feature - Press Triangle on Internet Browser, then under File > Save Screenshot.
* Custom Remote Play Settings - Manually set a device (such as a PSP system) to be used for remote play.
* New Avatar Support - Support for future additions of PSN avatars has been added. No new avatars have been added along with the firmware. However the support is there.
* “What’s New” – The “Information Board” will be replaced with a “What’s New” section, which allows you to enjoy interactive PlayStation news every time you start the PS3 system. Located under the PlayStation Network icon, “What’s New” displays the latest and greatest game, video, PlayStation Network and PlayStation news and releases, as well as your recently played games, in a sleek, new animated format.
* Status Indicator – In the top right corner we’ve added an indicator bar, which displays your user icon, friend icon, the number of friends you have online and a small message icon to let you know if you have any new messages. The indicator also includes a scrolling ticker that features the latest news from PlayStation Network. In addition, when you press the PS button, the battery life indicator will no longer cover up the clock.
* Friends List – Now your PlayStation Network friends will appear in a slightly redesigned format on your Friends List. Also, messages will now be viewable from each of your friends’ respective profiles.
* PlayStation Store Shortcuts – We’ve added a handy shortcut icon to the PlayStation Store under both the Game and Video categories so you can access the latest content quickly and easily.
* Personalization – Personalize your PS3 with new dynamic custom themes and avatars. Dynamic themes as well as free and premium avatars will be available through PlayStation Store. A dynamic theme takes your screen to a whole new level as it incorporates animated objects into the background.
* Trophies – Showcasing your hard earned trophies just got better. Update 3.00 gives game developers the ability to modify how they display trophies for add-on content. Base and add-on game trophies will continue to be combined into a single list so you can see where you stand in a game as a whole. Within that list, trophies will be broken out into subcategories—base trophies and add-on trophies—that way, you can easily view the percentage of your base game trophy collection, and separately track your trophy progress in add-on packs. Look for this enhancement to be included in upcoming games.

They're releasing BBC iplayer for it and we (EU) finally get the video store as well

^? you mean as an icon on the XMB? because you could use iPlayer via the browser, and it would be on "Big Screen" mode - but there was no option for HD.

im glad theyre doing more with trophies.

(i havent played my ps3 in a while)

It's apparently a shortcut to the website (like they have for the store) but I havenb't checked it yet cos I'm at work. It doesn't show on a lot of people's PS3's apparently so Sony are bringing out another update very soon

Well You Know How The Ps3 Only Has One HDMI Hook Up .......

Well My Stereo Is HD Also BUT, It Will Only Shuffle Sound Threw The Stereo .

So By Having A Multi Link Audio , You Can Connect Your Optical Cable To Your HD TV And Shuffle The Sound Threw The TV Instead Of Having It Go Threw The Stereo All The Time

Or Vice Versa You Can Connect Your HDMI Cable To The TV But Optical To The Stereo But Than Your Not Getting 7.1 Or DTSHD Or DolbyTRUEHd
Because Your Optical Cables Are Merly Digital And Not Capable Of More Than 5.1....So Yeah Huge Update The Biggest So Far
