209w ago - It's now been over two weeks since Sony released PS3 Firmware 3.10, however, according to several reports this weekend including Loot-Ninja.com (linked above) and the official PlayStation Forums it introduced a nasty Bluetooth controller sync issue.
Apparently many gamers who updated to PS3 Firmware 3.10 now have to use their PS3 controllers connected with a USB cable to play games, however, most reports are isolated to new PS3 Slim console although some early PS3 owners are also having issues it seems.
To quote: "Yesterday I ran into a troubling issue with my PS3 Slim where none of my three DualShock 3 controllers sync to my console via the wireless Bluetooth standard. Whenever I press the PlayStation button, all I get is four flashing lights as the controllers make a valiant attempt to sync with the PS3, but fail miserably.
After going through the troubleshooting steps provided by Sony, I did what any frustrated gamer would do: I searched Google. Turns out, there are quite a few people experiencing the exact same issue, some of which are having trouble with Bluetooth headsets...
210w ago - Today Dutch site PS3Hype.nl (linked above) is reporting that those experiencing synchronization issues with PS3 Trophies can expect the dreaded 80022A07 error to be remedied in 2010 when Sony's PlayStation Network will become faster.
It is not yet known if this speed increase will only benefit Paid Subscribers, however, according to the Sony Rep they spoke with new servers will be added early next year.
To quote, roughly translated: "After a call to the help desk this morning I asked my question how I, 'Can not sync trophies (80022A07)' could solve problem I was told that with an overloaded server or a little too busy to do.
According to the PlayStation employee who helped me in the coming months December, January and February new servers will be added.
After some persistent questioning what advantages this has for the online gamer, she came to ask colleagues who concluded that the PlayStation Network as you know it now will be much faster.
Whether this has to do with the PSN Premium she could not tell me, in any case we expect an announcement shortly on the PlayStation Network being faster."
