4.25 sucks, it only helps ps+ users. Why should I have to update my 14.4 modem to get the updates? Sorry channeled IATCG for a second there. ;)

Without cheapest gamer complaining, I pray for this topic. Thine time is almost at an end. You have been a good topic, but without your number one supporter, this topic is now left to die. Unless someone else becomes the new cheapest.

Yep.

As someone who doesn't need card reader support, I feel offended that I'm forced to download this update just to play online.

Jesus, I missed news of the last two firmware updates until I turned my system on. The Fuck happened to the Early Whining System that filled this thread with complaints about unnecessary features?


This thread needs more Cheapest!

The 4.40 seems to have made my system run better. Before the update my console seemed to be running sluggish at times. I had a few freeze-ups as well while playing RE 6. I know for sure the Playstation Store update has made a huge difference. Before the update it was always sluggish when searching for games, today after I ran the update the scrolling ran smooth.

That store update was the biggest waste of time IMO. I feel less interested in randomly browsing for things. The new menu setup is sluggish in comparison to before and everything feels like its nestled far away from everything else: it's just too compartamentalized. Now browsing feels like a chore, so I only go on to do task-specific things.

It's been awhile since I entered codes in the PS store on the PS3 (have been using the website) is entering codes all on one line new? Used to be you had to click, enter 4, click, click, enter 4, click, click enter 4, click, click, confirm.

agreed. It's even difficult to find things that I know i want sometimes. Seems strange to make such a late-in-life change to the store (especially when that content won't translate to the PS4). It is trying to satisfy some of the requests people had from day 1, but in doing so (not really) they broke a system that worked good enough for the last several years. I'd love to see some figures on how much sales dropped off after the change. I think the "Spend $40 get $10" deal right now is probably a good sign that they did.

+1.

Under the old system you could easily find all of the new stuff (games, wallpapers, free games, discounted games, etc...) that was updated weekly. Now, unless I know specifically what I want, it's almost impossible to browse under this redesign.

Content not carrying over is my biggest disappointment in the PS4 so far. I'm sure the announcement of a new console always steals at least a little bit of revenue from the current gen. If folks new their games and content would carry over they could continue to spend with confidence on the games and add-ons they really want now.

I don't use the playstation store in my ps3 anymore coz its too slow. I just use the store over the Internet. It's faster and easier to navigate around. Of course I do have to manually download my purchases in my download list over in my console after

4.40 adds the ability to download to the console when you boot it up, its just not active yet.

Also, the ps3 is going to be selling for another 2-3 years at the least still, so it makes sense to freshen things up for the new owners due soon. PS4 plays 0 ps3 games and ps3 has a strong library of stuff here and in the future.

One of the main things I miss from the old store is it would tell you if you have downloaded something.

Add me to those that don't like the PSN store. They need to hire experienced UI designers from the US. When was the last time you used a good PC OS developed in the East? What about a smartphone OS?

I've got my fingers crossed that the unannounced Gaikai functionality includes streaming of PSN content. If they were to come back and say "you can stream all this stuff and it won't take up space on your brand new system." that would be awesome.
