PlayStation Is Giving PS4 Owners The Chance To Beta Firmware
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 19th of August 2015 - 09:00 PM ]
Looks like the rumors from March are now true as PlayStation is allowing members to sign up to beta test new firmware for the PS4 Way back in March of this year rumors started springing up that PlayStation users would be getting a firmware beta program for the PS4. Nothing was concrete and set in stone back then as this was all based on a few emails and screen shots that could have been faked. Well it turns out they were not faked as right now PS4 owners who want to give new firmware a try can sign up to beta test on their systems. Because this is apparently a thing that PS4 owners have wanted so their Xbox One buddies would stop having something to gloat about. Read More...

by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 6th of March 2015 - 10:01 PM ]
New leaked screenshots and emails claim that PlayStation may be starting up a firmware beta program for the PS4 on the 2.50 update It looks like, if rumors are true, that MVP PlayStation 4 owners may be getting a firmware beta testing program.

The Next Major Update For The PS4 Firmware Is Bring So Much More
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 17th of October 2014 - 05:00 PM ]
More features for the PS4's 2.0 firmware have been announced and detailed with more on the way It was mentioned and slightly detailed back at E3 but it looks like the 2.0 update to the PS4's firmware is about to be released and it looks like there is a lot more to it than we thought. Some of these updates have been something I was hoping to have on my PlayStation since its launch back in 2013 but it looks like Sony has finally had the time to get around to them. I know I have been waiting for the YouTube addition for some time now but it looks like as of now my want for Media streaming, outside of Music, is still amiss. You can read more about these updates on the PlayStation Blog but we have a nice break down with images here for you. Read More...

Putting PS3 3.0 Through Its Paces
by Brian Bentley [ Tuesday, 8th of September 2009 - 03:09 AM ]
Writing about anything Playstation or Playstation Network (PSN) related is always treading dangerous ground. The fanboys get upset if you write anything detracting and for everyone else, it just isn’t cool or in vogue to write something positive. This article will have a sprinkling of both positives and negatives as I look at the new Playstation 3 firmware update 3.0. Ever since E3 it seems like Sony has finally begun to stop taking itself so seriously and began to have a little fun. Read More...

With all of the news flooding out of the Sony camp a lot of people have been curious to see if the Home service is going to receive any measure of attention.

by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 19th of August 2009 - 09:27 PM ]
PlayStation 3 Firmware (v3.00) Update So with the new PS3 Slim and price drop hitting the world, it would make sense that Sony would do something special for all of us who purchased the system a while ago. Some of us, at launch. I'll remain nameless for that one there. Irregardless, a new, pretty awesome update to the whole PS3 experience is what we current owners are getting. If you check out the list and video below, you can get a good look at what they are dishing out for us. A slimmer, sleeker What's New section. Read More...

Playstation 3 2.76 Software Update = Live
by Ben Brody [ Thursday, 14th of May 2009 - 06:41 AM ]
So the inFamous compatibility 2.76 update for the PS3 "improves the playback quality of some PS3 format software. and you will no longer have to restart a game to display trophies after a hard drive upgrade or if you restore from the backup" (like we do that SO much). The software update is most likely aimed at issues that arose during the testing of inFamous, the new game coming from Sucker Punch. GO DOWNLOAD IT NOW WOOOT! *missing from the update is the ability to do cross-game invitations, cross-game microphone chatting, or anything that makes playing a game as easy as XBOX Live.

by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 20th of March 2008 - 03:51 PM ]
PS3 Firmware v2.20 To Bring BD-LIVE and More Not too big of news, but I know some people will care about it. At least those who either own or are a fan boy of the system.

Especially since the 2.0 version of the format now has disks that hold up to 100GB of data. Read More...
