#4 Posted by SUBL1ME (116 posts) -

Downloading it now myself, hope its good. Its taking forever though, I just wanted to play some Arkham Asylum but downloaded the update instead figuring it take a few seconds. 5 minutes in and its only at 40%, everyone must be online at the same time downloading it.

#5 Posted by marc (573 posts) -

Mine just finished. Installing now. I to, want to play me some Arkham Asylum!

#6 Posted by MetalGearSunny (7003 posts) -

My PS3 is broken. :(

#7 Posted by marc (573 posts) -

well, I have it installed, looks pretty good. Very sparkly. But it doesn't seem to be wanting to sign me into the Playstation Network anymore. Uh oh.

SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET! Shall download first thing when I get home from school tomorrow! :D
#9 Posted by marc (573 posts) -

yay. I am signed in now. I must say, I like the new layout. Very convenient. The new bar at the top gives info like if you have messages, how many friends you have online, etc. Makes it so there is much less rooting around for stuff you check out often.

Finally finished, at quick glance loving the bigger text. But wheres my new avatars at? I was psyched to finally get something new instead of the same lame as pics that have been there since launch but theres nothing. And they didn't even add the avatar section to the store either.

Well if they're  taking time to time to update the system why not at least add it to the store. They didn't even add new free ones. Thats a total shame I get the feeling they are gonna pull a microsoft on us by charging for the avatars all of them.
#14 Posted by Giantsquirrel (601 posts) -

I like the new opening screen, but SPARKLES? Really? They look ridiculous and tacked on. The new friends status on the top right is great; however, I think the new friends list looks awful. Bland gray? It reminds me of the old Account Management page from 2006.

God damn, I'm on vacation and this is one of the updates I really wanted to see, lucky ducks.

Umm... I don't know how to say this... but that is exactly what they announced.

@Bucketdeth: I'd give up staying home updating my PS3's firmware for a vacation any day of the week.

Hmmm I actually missused the word "vacation" 
Lets just say I'm away from home and I don't get to play my PS3 for about 2 weeks, which isn't horrible but I do miss playing a game every now and then.

installed 3.0, but PSN is down for me... or i cant connect

#21 Posted by SUBL1ME (116 posts) -

I watched the announcement video but thats not how they made it sound. They made it seem like we were going to get new free avatars and then there would be pay ones. Either way  that bites, I'd like some free avatars because I have to make all PS Store purchases with prepaid cards because for some reason it won't accept my credit card. So I just can' make small purchases like that, it has to justify the purchase of a $20 card. Now if I wanted an avatar just like if i wanted a premium theme it has to be fitted into a larger purchase.

Mine did the same thing.

I love the sparkles and if you shake the six axis it moves

#25 Edited by Monkeygb21 (192 posts) -

I like all the icons and stuff but I I'm not feeling the sparkles.  Good thing i can turn them off in system settings.

The new LittleBigPlanet theme is also on the PS Store. It kicks ass. It costs $2.99, however.

REALLY needs an option to bring back the previous font size

#29 Posted by Tearhead (2214 posts) -

I don't even notice the new font size. Is there any options to customize this new stuff?

Whaat...it wasn't in the European store. Although, I thought it was gonna be free...?

#31 Posted by Linkyshinks (9880 posts) -

About time!

#32 Posted by Damian (1538 posts) -

I'll wait 'till Thursday to judge this. Right now it's just shinier. 
Are the speed tests in the connection wizard new? Never noticed that before if they ain't.

#33 Posted by marc (573 posts) -
@ChineseTea: I thought so to, but I probably just assumed that. Either way, it was only $3, so I got it, and it is awesome. No sparkles for me! lol
#34 Posted by mordukai (7185 posts) -

Not all that impressed. Mostly cosmetics changes form what I've seen so far. I was expecting more. 

#35 Posted by Lashe (1266 posts) -

Okay so they made... sparkles? And the font's bigger? And when I play with my right stick the video moves? 
 
This is worthy of stepping up as 3.0?
 
Fuck you, Sony. Fuck you right in the eye.

The new status bar is my favorite part of the update, but overall it seems like a nice update.

 Hey, an arbitrary numbering of a free update is REALLY important.
#38 Posted by mordukai (7185 posts) -
@Kamasama: don't get me wrong. They did some nice changes  that I do like but I was still expecting more. I can go into details if you really want me to.

@Mordukai: Perhaps I should have quoted it initially. I was more referring to your most recent post.

Damn right I do. =P Got up at 6am to download that crap!
 
The status bar is a neat addition, but that really should have been there from day 1. -sigh-. Almost tempted to try put a PS2 game in just in hope that there's been some sneaky addition of BC because otherwise, this has been a major disappointment.
#41 Posted by Anarchist4Eva (86 posts) -

Of course the best reason to have this firmware is it fixes the annoying battery meter over the clock! I have all but stopped playing my PS3 because of this! *sarcastic grin & cackling implied liberally*

Perhaps getting a bit angry there, but the choice to make it 3.0. was clearly just to make it sound like a bigger update.  I do like some of the changes, but meh, what more can really be said about this?  I don't pay money for themes or avatars on XBL, I'm certainly not going to here.

31% for me, noticed it this morning.

that was a big error, everytime I saw it I just thought the dudes at Sony were retarded.
#45 Posted by Anarchist4Eva (86 posts) -
@angelkanarias: Yeah I was being a little fecitious there. But just a little! It seemed to be a huge outcry that what was obviously an oversight brought out such rage from PS3 owners.

I don't like the friends list. But I have one thing to say, courtesy of GAF.

$3.00? Fuck it.
#48 Posted by eznark (92 posts) -

Pretty meh for an X.0 update.  Friends list is awful and the font belong on the Jitterbug.  I doubt many elderly glaucoma sufferers are avid PS3 users.

#49 Posted by Griddler (3344 posts) -

Can't wait for moving themes :D
