Video: PlayStation 3 Firmware v3.10 Update Preview

Sponsored Links
266w ago - Today PlayStation Network Operations Director Eric Lempel shared a video preview of the upcoming PS3 Firmware v3.10 update.

To quote: Hi everyone, here's an early peek at PlayStation 3 (PS3) firmware update (v3.10). The latest update incorporates Facebook into the PS3 experience.

By linking your PlayStation Network account to your Facebook account, you will have the option for the PS3 to automatically update your Facebook News Feed with Trophy and PlayStation Store activity.

This update also enables developers to set specific criteria in their titles to publish additional game information to your News Feed. You can then check out your updates, and those of your friends, on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media favorites through the PS3's built-in web browser.

This is just the beginning of our integration with Facebook and we are looking forward to adding new features enhancing the experience in future updates.

Additional highlights from update 3.10 include:

• The Photo category on the XMB has been revamped to make it easier to see more of your photos stored on the PS3.
• The PSN Friends List has been modified based on feedback we received after update 3.00. Additionally, you can now choose a color for your PSN ID on the XMB.

To get a preview of what's coming in update 3.10, check out the video below:

We're looking forward to releasing firmware update 3.10 soon. As always, we appreciate your feedback.

Anyone know how to get the new Facebook trophies to show on your FB page? I've added my facebook account on my PS3 but can't find any trophies etc on facebook. Do I need to add an app in fb?

It's not that bad to have Facebook integrated. It's no use for me because i'm playing at my PC tft but maybe someone will have eventually something out of it.

I'm still missing some gaming-oriented updates...

The rest is not very interesting to me...

Wow amazing update, just what i needed... a PS3 to facebook connection - Meh pointless waste of space.

This update looks to be just another minor update with meaningless UI changes that only a very select group of users will actually be glad to receive.

I can almost guarentee it includes more security related 'fixes' than worthwhile functionality (yeah i said security fixes, there are bound to be some holes that haven't been discovered by anyone except sony devs). Don't believe me? we'll just see when it gets released as a REQUIRED update.

Wake me up when a REAL release comes along (you know, one that does SOMETHING or includes a major exploit! haha)

(Didn't think I had anything to moan about today, but good old sony came good again!)

Another non-gamer oriented update. Boring.

Yet another PS3 update that I could care less about. I don't want to spam my Facebook profile with worthless posts, hopefully my friends will avoid turning on these options as well.

I also expected the Facebook integration would have been some kind of quick-access Facebook app inside of the XMB, unfortunately the reality is quite lame.

The pictures update doesn't help either. I don't store my pics on the PS3...how about some kind of connection to Flickr, Facebook or another service? Or even Cooliris?

Guess we'll have to hope for a real update sometime in 2010. The #1 update I want to see is MKV container support, much like the WD TV HD player.
