    Sony investigating PS3 3.0 firmware issues

    On it's U.S. PlayStation Blog, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has confirmed that it is aware and is actively investigation isolated reports of PS3s behaving badly after the latest firmware, v3.0, has been installed. PS3 3.0 included a lot of aesthetic changes to the XMB as well as the addition of "What's New, Status Indicator, Friends List, PlayStation Store Shortcuts, Personalization and improved Trophies."

    However, since it was released, there has been numerous reports made on forums about the console acting badly after the latest firmware update has been installed. "SCEA is aware of reports that PS3 owners are experiencing isolated issues with their PS3 system since installing the most recent system software update (v3.00)," the blog reads.

    It continues: "Rest assured that we are looking into the matter and will provide an update here as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience, as itís our mission to deliver the best consumer experience on all PlayStation platforms."

    i updated mine about two days ago,
    all seems ok here.

    my only gripe is.....
    when going up and down any menus,only the highlighted one stays visable.
    the rest used to fade but not totally disapear.

    ill be back soon,
    just watching some paint dry.

    Quick Google shows quite a few issues with FW 3.0 ranging from controllers to downloadable content problems. Didn't see any mention of the menu problem, however, Sony did revamp the XMB so there could be some bugs...

    remember, there's a reason why they make X.0.1 updates

    i don't think the menu fading to nothing is an issue/bug,
    i think that's how it should be.
    i just don't like it that way,
    i like to be able to see ALL the options/titles available,without having to scroll through them all.

    it's just me,i'm a picky bugger lol.

    ill be back soon,
    just watching some paint dry.
