PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.01 Is Live

The new PS3 firmware, 3.01, just went live. It's not a mandatory update, and we're not sure what's in the update or what it adds or what it fixes, but we are updating.

Right now. As we speak.

The previous 3.00 firmware update brought a host of new cosmetic changes. Users did report issues after the update with Uncharted and the DualShock controller. Sony spokesperson Patrick Seybold wrote on the PlayStation.Blog, "SCEA is aware of reports that PS3 owners are experiencing isolated issues with their PS3 system since installing the most recent system software update.

"Rest assured that we are looking into the matter and will provide an update here as soon as possible," Seybold added. "We apologise for any inconvenience, as it's our mission to deliver the best consumer experience on all PlayStation platforms."

We are following up with Sony to confirm what exactly this update addresses.

    @ alinos, should have held out cause Sony Playstation Australia dropped their flat rate repair cost to $250 for all consoles. Time to get my non-gimped launch console running again :-)
