I posted a "complaint" regarding the features of the 3.10 update. It was mainly about adding Facebook instead of things gamers really want. As is usual, I told my fiance about it (she is quite a facebooker) and MY OH MY!!! Did she come down on me like a ton of bricks!!

This is her comment:
The PS3 is much more powerful than mere gaming - it is a good thing to investigate the capabilities and allow the console to become a one-stop-tool for all kinds of entertainment and FACEBOOK IS ENTERTAINMENT (she kinda raised her voice here - totally out of character - I shivered for a moment). I intend using the facebook function and if it means your gaming time is reduced - go get another PS3 (PROBLEM: to do this I must get another home theatre, LCD TV, etc ... but I think by implication I have permission to spend some cash - will keep you updated - I might have great news in the near future).

I wanted to +Rep her right there and then, but I'm sure my timing would have sucked.

I think deep down she would like a silly lil thing like x-game chat ... but I am a lil scared to ask right now - will do next week.

So as part of her instruction to me - I have to kinda apologise for being a bit shortsighted and start thinking "outa the box" (I guess by implication outa the box means "don't bother getting an xbox - what do you think?)

The TV tab only appears after a complete restart... I actually was pretty dissapointed after the first reboot searching for AXN player and it wasn't anywhere in sight!

A quick review: the player is pretty slick (flash based), it has a little bit more content than the traditional web player that is found on the AXN site (dunno whi is that - probably a more centralized approach).
STARNEWS - has no subtitles...
Full Episodes - I catched a glimpse of:
- Damage & Interest (or something like that)
- Salvage Operation (or something like that)
- another show

.... actually a pretty good update, seeing that ANIMAX player has a LOT more content than the traditional player being full of two popular anime shows (probably - I'm no fan of those).

I would like to see the Internet Browser enhancements (it kept locking up when visiting PS3NEWS).

Would be more interested in knowing how this firmware perform compare to last two rather than having these new "features". Hopefully they fixed the game unplayable problem and bricking problem for those that have the problem(s).

It is one of those times that phrase "PlayStation®3 format software has been improved" is welcome.

Very happy to see facebook finally built into PS3. I browse the internet with PS3 everyday, it's cool to have dedicated integration of facebook to PS3 like the one find in iPhone and Windows Mobile.

But one thing, does it mean facebook has direct competition against the social function of Playstation Home?

Thats the exact error i got. I fixed it by turning off the PlayStation 3 from the switch. That seemed to fix my problem all is well now for me.

I know a lot of people had issues downloading it, especially from the US server as it would keep disconnecting.

Haven't had any problems with this update yet. I was even able to sync my trophies and have them show on my Facebook -- it works great!
