PS3 Firmware 3.10 Allows Users to Send Error Reports to Sony
Now with the PS3 Firmware 3.10 update you can send an error report to Sony.
I encountered this personally just yesterday when I was playing Modern Warfare 2 and think its a good feature for future PS3 Firmware updates to reduce issues.
To quote: "Thanks to firmware 3.10, Sony now allows users to send an error report after an improper shutdown.
Freezing is an annoying issue and there is no way for everyone to be able to report such errors in an easy way. While it's unknown what exactly is being sent to Sony, expect information about your software and hardware to be sent.
According to a disclaimer before sending in the report, this includes PSN account information, the content saved on your PS3, and your email address. This information will be sent if it was being used during the time of the problem."

Interesting, I did not know about this. However, I don't think I'll be sending error reports to Sony for what its worth. I wonder if it is possible to intercept these reports and read the logs. Or if that would even be worth while.

Error-posting is now a standard feature of computer operating systems. As the PlayStation console grows more computer-like (with periodic firmware updates, for instance), it makes sense to add this feature. The developers can't test all possible hardware and software combinations; reporting on errors helps them improve the product.

Otherwise you're probably just helping hardware manufactures (Sony in this case) close holes in the hardware. And as far as my rights to a better, error less, bug-free system go, that went out the window after my 1 year warranty expired I'm sure. Luckily for me, a majority of the problems are not with my system, but poorly ported and coded games, such as Fallout 3 GOTY to name one prime example.
All in all, welcome to the forums.
