I am sick of all these updates!

Forums - Sony Discussion - I am sick of all these updates!

They are fucking annoying.

Like for example I had about 20 minutes spare time today before I had to go back to school, so I though I could get in a game or two of Modern Warfare 2 but....no; I had to do the fucking 3.20 or whatever the recent one is. And you can't play online until you do the update.

I know they usually take under 10 minutes or so but still its annoying as hell when you just want to pop in a disk and play a couple quick online matches but you have to do an update.

What Sony needs to do is send an actual important yet simple update : HDMI fix

Amazing how greedy and selfish we have become. 10 years ago i would have killed for my PSOne or PS2 or even before that, my genesis or SNES to be able to evolve for free at no cost to me. Now we bitch about it taking 20 minutes as if the system is holding us onto our couch and not letting us go make a sandwich, browse our PC's or read a book or magazine, play with our pet, switch over and watch some TV while its updating, vacuum the living room, take out the trash, do the dishes......



The 3.30 update took maybe 5-10 minutes on an ethernet connected 30Mbs connection, so there's nothing wrong with the update size. Some of the major updates have been much larger.

It would be nice if SCE scheduled the updates a bit more regularly, rather than the random (to consumers; SCE undoubtedly has a schedule for firmware and feature updates/additions) method they've been using all this time.

As for the annoyance factor, firmware updates are less annoying than the game updates for individual games. They're much less frequent if you play a lot of different games.

Seriously, I can't be the only one! My PS3 takes about 2x as long as my 360 or Wii does to update. It is so irritating! It takes about 2.5-3 hours to download an update around 30mb...

Is there a reason as to why it takes so much longer?

 

Seriously, the firmware and game updates need to freaking stop.

Get better internet.

My update last night took about 15 minutes, downloaded and installed.

I do have really fast internet, I don't know how exactly to find out how fast it is, but trust me when I say I never have lag issues. It is just download speed. I know my internet is fine because my Wii60 downloads MUCH faster.

What's wrong with the HDMI ?

I either use my Belkin cable or my cheap one and they both work fine.

The real problem is with my Optical audio cable, but I think it could just be my surround sound.

Amazing how people read enough of the OP to get offended, but not enough to get all of the information.

Yeah its amazing how i didnt quote you and im speaking on your "these updates need to stop" If it takes you 3 hours to DL 30 mb its a you problem not Sony.

Youre bitching and asking for one of the greatest things this gen, the updates, because youre faulty internet.

My comment was generalized based on your topic and request to lessen or diminish updates, or else i would have quoted you.

I move my PS3 around from house to house and I normally use HDM..I but when I used a composite cables I could not seem to fix my HDMI connection any more and now I am stuck using composite cables (which I honestly do not mind but i'd be nice to use HDMI)

Although, I have never tried using component cables yet...

I dont think thats a documented problem....try holding the power area on the PS3 with the HDMI connected to "reboot" the system, it should then detect teh HDMI and ask you to re-enter the calibration based on the connection.

I had to do his taking my PS3 to a friends house who only had a 720p TV and m system was calibrated to 1080p so we didnt have a picture until we rebooted it like this.
