PS3 Firmware 3.0 Available Now

32 second read


Just a quick heads up to all of you Playstation 3 owners out there that the last firmware update for 2009 is officially up and waiting for your download.

Improvements in 3.0 include quite a couple of differences ranging from a new friends list layout, a little status bar, copy and paste for your browser and quite a lot more. You can view the full list of changes in the firmware by clicking here.

Since this will be the last update for the year, let’s hope that the next update is going to be a real “biggie”.

    “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.”

    Now this is a nice addition. Heck, cannot wait to install FW 3.0 when I get home… :cheerful:

    I have mixed feelings about the 3.0 update… Dynamic themes sound cool but not buying one for $3. Hope the community makes their own soon.

    The friends list looks… too big.

    Trophy breakdown is nicely done.

    Why the **** is the Playstation store between the GAME and TROPHY icons???

    Overall Sony seems to be placing more shine into their GUI. 🙂
