PS3 Update 3.50: Download Firmware Now and Features List

Sony has today released a new firmware update for the Sony PlayStation 3, this system software update brings the console to firmware version v3.50 and adds Blu-ray 3D Disc Playback functionality, let’s just hope it rolls out smoothly and doesn’t cause too many problems.

The 3D Blu-ray 3D disc playback is not the only new feature this update brings, there is now Facebook integration which will allow games to interact with your Facebook profile, also the whole Facebook experience should be a lot better on the whole.

Another new feature is the new Grief Reporting Function, this allows you to report any inappropriate messages that you receive from other PSN users, this is accessible via the options menu in the messages list in the FRIENDS category.

The update should install itself automatically if you are connected to the Internet, if you are experiencing problems receiving the update check out this link.

Have you received the update? If so, do you like the new features?

I agree, Jim. People ARE idiots. And as to taking down all servers, they'd be really ticked if they played WoW like my sis does. Maint. days are Tuesdays every week, sometimes all day and they have more servers than Google or near it. These people are whiners and they make the online community not fun at all. Grow up people.

Anyone having problems with the ps3 not reading blu ray discs after the 3.5 update could you please write to BBC Watchdog? It does not take longer than 10 minutes to do it and if we get sufficient people complaining they will make a case out of it. I have phoned Sony and they have told me that they will replace my PS3 fat 60gb for a refurbished one for £131 with just 3 months guarantee and I am not willing to pay that if it was their fault. I am from Spain living in UK and I have checked… Read more »

I downloaded update 3.5 and now my unofficial PS3 single handed controller doesn't work. I wouldn't mind if Sony had any social conscience and produced a controller that could be used by someone who lost their left arm 5 years ago in a motorcycle accident, but the actual cost to manufacture was such that it wasn't economically viable. But now that they have blocked all unofficial and unlicenced products from using the system, I am effectively locked out of the single most important item of hardware I possess. So thanks Sony, for your loyalty to your faithful customers who have… Read more »

Just, You people are all retards. End of story. Seriously, Sony is on the 3D thing right now, so they're making the PS3 compatible with 3D Blue-Rays for those people who actually like it and don't want to spend $350-$500 on a player that has this capability. Really they're doing so many people a favor and all you people can do is bitch and complain about the update. What, does MW2's online multilayer really rule your life so much that you cant go a few hours with out it? Oh, and after the update you couldn't sign in, but wait!… Read more »

FORGOT THE BLURAY OR FACEBOOK AND FOCUS ON THIS ISSUE : -WHY DO I HAVE TO FIND THE SOLUTION ON THE INTERNET -WHY IT JUST SHOW ME A MESSAGE THAT SYSTEM IS UNDER MAINTANANCE I get another stupid message everytime I try to login. sony already… Read more »

I can understand needing to take servers down to run maintenance. I guess the fact that some people can still get on means that there's a backup/mirrored system in place, which isn't quite so well equiped to deal with us all. It also seems to be serving the UK psn website, which I don't seem to be able to get on. Perhaps the next update could include the implementation of messages or pop-ups, which could let you know that you aren't going mad, your system isn't broken, there's no problem with your internet/wifi and that it's just that the servers… Read more »

Christ, people. PSN is down for maintenance. It's been said several times before. It's not Sony breaking things with an update, or your password being incorrect. It's just server downtime. Just wait.

PlayStation Network is offline for scheduled maintenance from 16:00 on
Tuesday 21 September 2010 until 02:00 on Wednesday 22 September 2010,
BST.

If your still signed in your ok.

If your not you'll notice when you try to sign in you get the error 80023017 its just the PSN store is down for maintenance.

Also you'll notice your password has gone, And when you type it in it'll say "password incorrect"
This is because of the down time.

Should be back up shortly, Just be patience.

If you go to the ps store on your home computer, it will tell you that online for ps3 is down because of maintenance till 5pm today. I would think during the am hours would have been a better time to do it.

Based on a running "ticker" comment on Sony's PS3 homepage, it says the PSN will be down today (sept 21) from 8:05am (EST) to 5PM. This is very odd because I just d/l the 3.5 update. After it installed, however, I couldn't access the network and got error 8023017.

I hope this fixes itself at 5 like they mention or I'm gonna be PO'd that this update screwed my system.

3d is blurry and lag filled. Tried watching monsters vs aliens in 3d and it didn't work properly it had really bad motion blur and wasn't set up properly. 3d games and 3dtv works fine. This firmware is a good start but released before ready. Thanks Sony, it was widely demanded that it be released but now I know why they kept delaying it, it's not ripe yet!

Billy1980
Billy1980

Monsters vs aliens worked on ps3 for me but it is still very motion blurry and lagged heavily. I think the right eye picture isn't in sync as well as the left. Gave me a headache way more than the gaming and 3d tv previews did. I have a 46" samsung. Anybody else think it's very motion woozy. I think this is a good start but not sorted yet!
