PS3 Firmware Update 1.11 |

I installed the 1.11 PS3 firmware update and didn’t really notice anything different. But according to Sony, there’s been a lot of changes.


  • You can now use PLAYSTATION®Network services.
  • You can now use the single tap text entry method on the on-screen keyboard for English and other European languages.


  • [Audio CD Output Frequency] has been added as a feature under [Music Settings].
  • [Enable ATRAC] has been added as a feature under [System Settings].
  • [Cross Color Reduction Filter] has been added as a feature under [Display Settings].
  • [After 5 Minutes] has been added as an option to [Screensaver] under [Display Settings].


  • You can now select [Full Screen] under [Screen Mode] when playing video files saved on the hard disk or storage media.


  • You can now download and save music and video files on the hard disk under [Internet Browser].
  • You can now download the following types of content under [PLAYSTATION®Store].
    – PLAYSTATION®3 format software
    – PLAYSTATION®Network titles
  • Simplified and traditional Chinese characters can now be displayed under [Internet Browser].
  • [Online Instruction Manuals] has been added as a feature.


  • New for 1.11: [Account Management] has been added.


  • The method of calculating hard disk capacity has been changed.
    Free space on the hard disk is calculated as 1 GB (1024 x 1024 x 1024) = approx. 1,073,740,000 bytes. As a result, the free space value displayed may be less than the value that is mentioned under specifications in the product documentation. You can check hard disk free space under [Settings] > [System Settings] > [System Information].
  • Playability status with the PS3™ system has changed for some PlayStation® and PlayStation®2 format titles. To check on the latest status, visit the search site for compatible titles.
  • New for 1.11: Some PLAYSTATION®Network features have been revised.

PS3 Firmware Update 1.11

  • Apparently, most of those fixes/features actually came in with the 1.10 update, and they’re just listing them again. The two new ones are the ones marked ‘New for 1.11’.

  • Aha! I new I’d seen the “Cross Color Reduction Filter” thing before.

  • francois

    “Cross Color Reduction Filter” What is it?

  • No idea.

    It is sad when I can get a 20 gig PS3 for cost and I turn it down. I really hope you guys are enjoying your PS3s. I really cannot find a reason to spend the amount of money on a system that doesn’t have any games I want to play right now.

    I still thoroughly enjoy reading this blog to see the progress the PS3 makes. Hopefully someday soon Sony will give me a reason to pick one up.

  • I have alway had one criterion when getting a sony system, when is Tekken out. I bought my playstation only a few months before tekken 2. I bought my PS2 with Tekken Tag Tournament. I bough my PSP with Tekken: Dark Ressurection. When Tekken 6 comes out, im sure they will be a big enough supply, and enough good games, to warrant having the system. I assure you, use the “Tekken test”, if you can find a reason once tekken comes out, you may not want one.
