Wow. I've just spent my last hour downloading the new PS3 Firmware update, the one that is supposed to include:
-In-game/Cross-game Voice chat
-Quick Trophy reference and trophy details/history.
What do I find? None of this. What do you guys think of 2.7, the big dandy update with loads of cool new items? I'll tell you what I think, waffle. Complete waffle. The text chat is completely pointless, because we have messages, and I see no difference, the new “Sort By” option is just darn fustrating, and i'm yet to see the other downsides.April 2, 2009 at 6:23 pm #22792
yep completely agree. and the irratating thing is, sony have spent months on this.April 2, 2009 at 6:38 pm #22795XeroTheGreatMember
Oh and to add to the dissapointment, there's no in-game XMB themes either.April 2, 2009 at 6:56 pm #22798Hurley48Member

there was supposed to be a auto trophy sync whenever you earn a new trophy too, this would have gotten rid of any chances of the dreaded trophy sync prob i think. Also rumoured was in game internet broser but we might all want to note it was only rumours none of it was ever confirmed :_(April 2, 2009 at 7:11 pm #22800iiDiNkStErRMember
i also dont like the friends list, i liked alpheabetical (not rite spellin) seeing as i have friends that have CantTouch so it looked awesome. Now it doesntApril 2, 2009 at 7:25 pm #22801kingofgames73Member
i guess we will get use to it but i think sony should start changing the annoying stuff rather than fiddling with what every1 likes/works well. For example the annoying problem where you go to read a message but the ps3 crashes causing you to do a manual reboot (hold power button for 7 seconds), also id like a feature where lets say you have a game which takes up loads of space because of its game data utility e.g gran turisimo 5 prologue (disc version) it takes up 6gb on my ps3 (or did i deleted it recently), id like to be able to throw that over to my external hdd so if i want to use it again rather than download+install all other again i would simply have to install it off the external hdd (not sure if it will ever be possible though)April 2, 2009 at 8:41 pm #22807gamer47Member
I agree with them needing to fix the message crash issue. It ALWAYS happens!
And I too, miss the alphabetical friends list… we should at least be able to choose how we want the friends layout to be?
I haven't tested out the new text chat feature so can't really comment there..
I do like how when you compare trophies… instead of showing “0%” it now shows a dash ” – ” indicating the person doesnt own that game.April 2, 2009 at 11:48 pm #22821GHOST305Member
The text chat feature is ok…for the first three messages. Then you realize that you only have a certain amount of letter that you are able to put in there. Also i found out that it bleeps outbad words (which is a good idea i think), but when i go to tell my friend that im getting trophies for Fallout 3, the message comes up as *****ut 3. I guess i must have said something bad in another language… But all in all I dont really like the update. Sony should have done betterApril 3, 2009 at 1:13 am #22828
yeah i mean FFS the text chat dont even let U type toys!April 3, 2009 at 2:36 am #22831edge4eva32Member
In all honesty ALL of the previous updates have been crap. Sony really isn't putting the right effort into anything they do, haha. I love my ps3, but I would love it more if Sony would fix all the problems, but they seem to add to the problems rather than fix them.April 3, 2009 at 5:54 am #22833HypnosisMember
Yep as King said. All those cool features wre rumors started on the sony boards =\. I too would have like to see most of those rumore implemented.April 3, 2009 at 7:20 am #22836
