Out now!


http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2009/12/08/ps3-system-software-update-3-15/



• a few bug fixes for those with controller pairing issues.

• trophy syncing fixed

• PSP minis playable on PS3





• data transfer between 2 PS3s linked with ethernet cable

This feature enables you to easily transfer all of your saved data from one PS3 to another. So if you decide to get a new PS3 you can make sure you don’t loose any of your existing content. Content such as games, game save data, and videos downloaded from PlayStation Network can be transferred to the new PS3 system and deleted from the current PS3. Other content, including personal media files (photos, music, videos), can be copied onto the new PS3 and remain on the current PS3 system.

Is this THE firmware update everyone's been OMG waiting for?!!!!!!

Probably just fixes the controller sync issues. That is still happening to some PS3 owners correct?

It's still happening to me. I figured it is because I have the feature enabled that lates me turn on the PS3 with my TV/TV Remote. Tossing an extra psuedo-controller into the mix probably isn't doing me any favors.

The only time I ever had sync problems was when I was using an old bugged version of the Logitech Harmony adapter, which was "recalled" from the stores. Luckily I was still within 30 days so I just got a replacement with a new part number from the store. The newer version made everything happy again. I am using a really early version of the DS3 imported from Japan.

Probably just a fix. Hopefully it will fix that damn Blu-Ray issue, because I really really want to import Life.

That, and I'd really like to be able to sync trophies again...

VVV Thanks. I guess Life still remains out of my Reach. No way I'm listening to Oprah.

Minis is probably the only thing relevant to me. I love little puzzle games you see (go Critter Crunch).

PSP minis without the need for a PSP? That sounds like good business sense - pretty interesting feature, but I have to wonder how they account for screen difference. In a little window?

Data transfer between 2 PS3s... can't think of why anybody would need this.

awesome :D

especially the last part since I just sold my sister my old PS3 in preparation to get a nice new slim come Christmas

but I'm guessing that the Demon's Souls data will still not transfer :-(

Added some details.
If it's just PSP minis playable and not all PSP games... I'll take what I can get, but that's disappointing, because making all PSP games playable on PS3 would be an incredibly smart move.

So glad to see PSP Minis playable and confirmed. Surely one step closer to PSP emulation. I might grab the last 2 gold medals in Red Bull X Fighters at last!

Maybe it is just begin, and the media will start bother Sony about that while minis is playable on PS3. Hope it will cause their mind but I bet license/lawsuit holding something.

Serious? It's important
Yeah it's not a joke post, I just can't think of when I'd ever use it... I'm open to being enlightened though. I'm guessing if you have multiple PS3s in the house and want to share media between them? I don't know, in this case having a DLNA server that both of them feed off of would make more sense to begin with. Game saves? Many times they are locked to the console anyway, and are small enough to throw on memory cards/usb sticks in a couple of seconds.

For me the killer features would be:

1) Better organization for media, making slapping a large HDD into the PS3 and using it to store all of the media instead of relying on an external DLNA server to try to organize it. Search feature for media by tag/filename info.

2) Allow PS3 to act as a DLNA server, useful in above scenario where you want your media stored on board.

3) Allow selective backup - big problem when you store all of your media on PS3 harddrive the backup feature insists on backing up all of your hundreds of gigs of media too when all you're interested in is preserving your OS/Saves/Etc.

You'll finally be able to transfer those pesky locked saves to another PS3...
but they will be deleted from the original PS3 they were transferred from.

If this includes locked saves, then I can finally retire my fatty and migrate to a slim! :O

If this is what it takes to have a playable version of Tetris on my PS3, no complaints by me. :D

Oh come off it. Better late than never and especially with people possibly transferring to the Slim over Xmas. If this is the only way to get round locked save files then fair play to them for providing the option.
