258w ago - Sony's Director of PlayStation Network Operations Eric Lempel has announced that PlayStation 3 Firmware update 3.01 is now available (not a mandatory update) and fixes the reported 3.00 update issues, as follows:

Hi everyone, PS3 system software update 3.01 is now available for download. This is an optional update that improves system stability during use of some PlayStation 3 format software.

After playing through some of Uncharted and clearing a previous freezing point, the game is running smoothly again. Do be sure to check any of your own titles that you had a problem with and see if they are running fine. Other than that, it looks like Sony fixed the 3.00 issues.

To quote Eric Lempel's PS Blog reply on the changes: "Yes, this will fix the issues that some users have experienced with Uncharted: Drake's Fortune."

cool... Uncharted is playable again.

But Bourne is now stuttering and my BluRay Discs are NOT recognized

When you say blu-ray discs are not recognized, do you mean movies since you said Uncharted works now and it is a blu-ray game disc or are you referring to blu-ray discs that you have created of movies and such?

Hi guys, i don't have the ps3 yet, so i play at friends house

i saw some problem also with Metal Gear Solid 4, it crashs when playing with firm 3.0, with 3.01 seems to run smoothly. Does anyone got similar problem with other games before or after the upgrade?
