PS3 Firmware 2.16 (EUR) Update Available for Collectors!

50°
348w ago - Periodically Sony includes interim retail PS3 Firmware updates on PS3 game discs and console region revisions.

Examples include PS3 Firmware 1.02 (on launch title Game Discs including Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom), 1.11 (on early JAP PS3 consoles), and 1.55 (on early 60GB PS3 consoles). These never make it to actual PS3 Firmware updates via PSN, as they generally only contain a minor change/bugfix.

Today we have another one of these cases- PS3 Firmware 2.16 Update was extracted from a Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (EUR) Game Disc and uploaded to the Internet. No, it doesn't contain any 'supersecret holes' (lol) and it unpacks just like all the rest do with PS3 Update Unpacker v1 but for the collectors out there it's available below- enjoy!

PS3 Orange Box 1.10 patch released- 128MB in size!

50°
348w ago - EA has released a patch to fix problems with The Orange Box PS3 such as friends not appearing on lists and certain accounts not connecting to EA servers.

Update 1.10 comes in at 128 MB and is available now, but no official documentation has been released.

To quote: The 1.10 update is 128 MB, and unhelpfully has no associated documentation to outline the changes. Early reports suggest friends not appearing on lists and certain accounts not connecting to the EA servers should no longer be a problem.

Orange Box PS3 owners have publicly complained for a while over the framerate and connection issues as well as slow loading times.

Valve does not develop PS3 versions of its games internally but outsources them to a third-party. It has said this is the model it will follow for the foreseeable future.
