A PS3 Update That Actually Does Cool Stuff!

A PS3 Update That Actually Does Cool Stuff!

Most of the times, a PS3 system update is a cause for groans, notable only for the fact it interrupts your next gaming session. But this next one's not so bad!

Here are the highlights:

  • Auto download of system software updates has been expanded to support all PSN users.
  • Auto download support of purchases made on the Sony Entertainment Network online store will be made available to all PSN users.
  • New options for trophy privacy settings allow users to set which trophies are visible.
  • Data can now be transferred from PS3 to PS Vita using Wi-Fi or an Ethernet connection.

Auto-downloads? Hiding trophies? Easy data transfer? This is all good stuff, all of it.

The update should be rolling out throughout the evening.

    New options for trophy privacy settings allow users to set which trophies are visible.

    YES! Now I can hide the fact that I love playing all the Bratz games!

    ...oh wait.

      I should post the link to this comment in all of the articles on the front page :)

          NOOOOOOOO!!! My Dignity!!!!

            Face it, man, you lost that when you played the Bratz game in the first place

    Glad to have the trophy hiding. Now I can hide all the games and their 1% trophies when a friend brings over a game for me to try. Now we just need to be able to change our PSN name!

    yay transfer between vita and ps3 via wifi. about freaking time.
    this is such a painful process. now it will be slow but convenient.

    would still like the option to delete trophy progress instead of creating a new user. ah well

      Yes, yes, YES!

      Lying to my friends about the trophies I never got is good, but not as good as making the pointless ones disappear altogether.

      I'd quite like that on the 360 as well, that way I could get rid of those 2 sodding fifa12 achievements that hacker prick got for me

    "Data can now be transferred from PS3 to PS Vita using Wi-Fi or an Ethernet connection. "

    Since when does the vita use ethernet?

      Presumably it means that if you've got wifi turned off on the PS3, but its ethernet port is hooked up to a wifi access point, you'll be able to do the data transfers.

    closing the gap, getting ready for ps+ next gen. i get it
