Not trying to slander firmware 3.10, but was browsing through the PlayStation Blog and saw someone mentioned that there might be problem playing some videos, which would have "This application is not supported" message. Just a word of caution.

TVNZ OnDemand was withdrawn from being available just prior to being released. Someone did catch the Screen shot of it in the TV menu, but was withdrawn quickly. So it doesn't work at present.

Also - Browser performance improved? Give me a break - trying going to www.facebook.com or www.twitter.com; its almost completely useless to use. Its very buggy with the textbox's and submitting data. They are indeed using different designed pages to what the PC browsers get.

They are just useless.

But then again on the plus side, it updated my Facebook status with a "purchase" from the Playstation instantly (even though it was only a demo i wanted).

Trophy related activities, particularly trophy comparison, is significantly faster. Comparing trophies used to take 30 seconds to a minute. Now it is nearly instant. Also, trophy list for games appears much faster than before.

As per my post in the previous thread it seems among the unlisted update items there may be some security fixes (They only ever seem to be required/mandatory when this is the case!)

Think i'll stick with 3.00 as long as i can just in case. (Don't care about facebook, and nothing else is worth the potential gain!)

Help!!! I've just installed the new update (3.10) and my BBC iPlayer has gone. In fact the TV category is missing. Is this intentional? I loved having the iPlayer and am really going to miss it if they've taken it away.

Anyone else noticed this missing?

The only 2 reasons I see for updating is Tekken 6 and Assasins Creed 2.

Facebook I really couldn't care less never used it, I might even turn off the feature.

Currently on FW 2.6 I'll wait a couple of weeks to see if it's buggy if not then I'll update. lests be honest 2.7, 2.8 somewhat buggy 3.0 and 3.01 total trainwrecks.

I hope I won't lose my emulators though.

Edit: Hey me again. I was just wondering with all the jacked-up issues of FW3.0 and 3.01 did anybody by any chance find an exploit or was everybody to busy ranting to realize that there may be some real potential in these two extreamly buggy FWs.

I find it very difficult to believe that there are no exploits in these two firmwares.

I'm always afraid to update my ps3, I just have a feeling that the one I update it, it just bricks. I have an old 20G ps3 so thats why I feel that way. Maybe just paranoid.

Ha! Nice post though OGroteKoning so I +Rep'd you.

I guess Sony is trying to accomodate everyone, not just the typical 18-25 male gamers, etc with their FW updates. I can't say I consider Facebook 'entertainment' myself, but maybe I'm not using it enough to learn what else it can do... perhaps one of these cold winter nights I will though.
