WE posted here last night, that Sony where close to releasing a new Firmware, that Firmware version 3.70 is now live and brings the following features:
For PlayStation Plus members, System Software update 3.70 introduces two often requested features: Automatic syncing on trophies to PlayStation Network and automatic upload of game saves to Online Storage (only available to PlayStation Plus subscribers). Syncing of Trophy information will occur at the time you select in the Automatic Download settings; due to these additional functions, ‘Automatic Download’ will be renamed as ‘Automatic Update’.
System Software 3.70 will also make some changes to the layout of the XMB. The [TV] section will be renamed [TV/Video Services] and is where you will find the streaming video services available in your territory, such as BBC iPlayer in the UK.
In PlayStation Store, a ‘recommend’ feature has been added, allowing you to message your PlayStation Network friends and highlight a game or other piece of content.
MPO (Multi-Picture format) files for 3D photos and multi-angle photos can now be displayed under Photo and in [Photo Gallery].
3D playback of Blu-ray Java (“BD-J”) content is now supported. You can now enjoy BD-J content recorded on Blu-ray 3D discs.
SCEE via its Twitter account, posted that tomorrow, Thursday the 11th of August, there will be a scheduled maintenance, which will start at 4:05 PM BST on Thursday evening, until 2:00 AM BST on Friday morning.
Regarding the Firmware update, i think it may have a bug, regarding network.
I have my PS3 connected via Ethernet had no problems with it until i updated, now each time i try and sign in, it tells me i have no Ethernet cable connected, if i redo network settings and and do a network test, it says everything is fine, im connected to the internet and PSN, but when i go to actually sign into PSN, it tells me no Ethernet cable is connected, i can connect via WiFi, but prefer Ethernet.
Im wondering if any of you have experienced similar problems ?
Just a reminder the DNS bypass trick works again for lower firmwares (184.108.40.206 for primary/secondary DNS). Will only work for 1-2 week as usual following the new firmware update. The DNS trick is for 3.60 and above. Not for 3.55 and below. This is because of the XI-Passphrase that was changed to keep CFW off PSN
According to internet reports, the new firmware brings a set of keys (making new releases unplayable on CFW at all). It also patches the holes that Cobra-USB supported.
