[Update]PS3 Firmware 3.30 Stealth Updates [Flash, PC Remote Play, Blu-ray] |


I’ve gotten one report that the update does NOT fix the issue with the UK Version of BBC Life.

Most exciting thing for me is that they fixed issues with some region-free Blu-ray disks. For example BBC’s Life! Can somebody with this Blu-ray test this out and get back to us?

It appears there’s a new BD Audio Output setting under Video Settings: [(Direct)] and [Bitstream (Mix)] have been added for optical output. More info here, thanks TTP.

They added an option for PC remote play, but you can only use future models of the Sony VAIO PC’s that are coming in May 2010. Hopefully they expand support to all computers, kinda lame they limit it to only Sony computers. Sony also updated the Flash used in the PS3’s Web Browser. Not sure what version it updated to though. Apparently YouTube works better now. For the rest of the Firmware 3.30 features check out our other post.

    Yeah, the 3.30 update crept up on my yesterday when I tried to log in. Didn’t really read what was going on and didn’t realize what happened until I saw the “Downloading update” screen. I was just brushing my teeth and saw from the corner of my eye that something had popped up but figured it was a “could not connect” error and hit the button.

    i think the user agreements are also ‘updated’

    see here:

    Yeah, they basically changed it to mirror Nintendo’s change to their user agreement. I got an email yesterday morning from Sony with all the details of the change to the UA that seemed to highlight the changes.

    No the update does not fix the problem with the import version of BBC Life on US PS3’s (with or without a 50Hz capable TV). I do not understand why this was said on a few difference blogs now. Gonna have to keep waiting for that June 1 North America release.

  • @cathodeflux thanks for updating us on that … 🙁 Bummer at least June 1st isn’t to far away ..
