PS3 Firmware 3.1 To Have Error Reporting >
2009/11/20 14:43:58: Posted by DM
In a proactive attempt to gather error reports on the PS3, Sony is now adding an error reporting feature on the latest firmware edition. Freezing and the YLOD (Yellow Light Of Death) are the two main issues that users experience, but it can be used to report anything. While this is a good way for Sony to get data on problems, it also conveys a bit of a sense of non-confidence in the hardware. Hopefully there is nothing else behind it.

actually i think that is a good idea... maybe like how if a program crashes on Windows it has the option to "send an error report"... more problems could be solved more quickly given that the user can have it reported right away, and possibly with more details behind the error other than posts on forums like "Uncharted froze while on such and such level"

I wouldn;t call this a sense of non-confidence in hardware. It is good to see Sony being pro-active in error resolution. Having to add a 3year extended warranty on all your consoles is non-confidence.

Seriously Hand Banana STFU. A company fucks up, like all do, actually admits up to it (finally) and adds extended service for it and all you can do is troll this fact?

Don't be an idiot.

Gotta love Hand Banana's SDF spin. Stick to the topic instead of redirecting please.

I would like to say that all 3 of the PS3's I have owned have all worked just fine. Unlike my past experiences with the PS1 and PS2. Maybe Sony got it right this generation...

Lighten up. Read between the lines and try realize how my comment was directed at DM, if you can. If not, don't jump to your all too frequent SDF and trolling rantings. It's tired, old, and unoriginal.

PimpDaddy, don't start this BS again. I've been playing 360 since launch, as well as the PS3. I'm not SDF, but i can see faults, unlike your blind fanboyism.

As far as the topic, since i may be too vague for you to understand, let me break it down a bit more simply for you. DM likes to throw out fuel for bullshit with comments like "non-confidence." I just let him know hes an asshole.

The problems with these systems are well known, the joke is what's old. No one is ignoring it, we've all just moved on.

We all know DM adds fuel to the fire, but replying to flamebait with fanboy drivel doesn't make it right. Owning multiple systems doesn't make you free of being biased or a fanboy.

Exactly, I own the Wii and still think it sucks.
Written by PimpDaddy on 2009/11/23

Oh Hand Banana, perhaps you should lighten up. I own 2 PS3's and actually play them more than my 360. Does that make me less of an Xbot by your standards. Bottom line is you prefer your PS3. it's why you took offense to DM's statement. Rather than telling DM to fuck off initially you made some whack ass played out crack against the 360 in defense of your precious Sony. Another SDF member in denial. GTFO

VaeVictus I think the Wii sucks too.

Xenos if DM didnt flame bait this article would have exactly 0 comments like the rest on this site. Though you may disagree with his tactics, look at the guy who likes to play with his banana. He got all butt hurt and actually tried to defend Sony while dissing Microsoft.

DM congrats on baiting banana bitch boy. BTW Happy Hand time called you an asshole. Dont take that lying down. Talk shit back... Bait him again. For just a second this site got interesting again.

*Goes back into retirement*

Ahhh, the stupidity of a self proclaimed Pimp.. Why is it everyone who puts the word "Pimp" in their name is a self righteous asshole who cant help but turn everything into a repressed sexual rant... I'm kidding, i know why.

Oh, and Pimp, my friend has you on his PSN friends list.. if you play more PS3 than 360, than i guess you must not have a 360...

As far as preferring my PS3, i have gone over many times that i prefer each console for different games and genres. This doesnt fit your bullshit rant agenda, though, so i guess keep on going. Here's some toys to play with "I love Sony. Long live SDF!!!!!!!.... Fuck yourself.

Oh yea, and as a group, look up the word satire. It may help you make it through life.

I really hate that this is the only site i can access at work and I'm forced to fraternize with you hopeless shit heads.

And JFC Xenos, you have a recurring problem of not understanding my points and just reiterating the same tired recycled response because you think you have a clue wtf I'm saying.

If i could type in a GD crayon font i would. I would even write backwards "R's" if it would help you out.

I'll try just one more GD time.

DM sucks...DM has a massive Microsoft Boner (I mean swallowing Bill Gates dicks like cheerios severity)... DM loves to shit on Sony.... When someone says anything pro Sony here, people, especially $5HODaddy, like to bash them, call the fanboys, SDF ETC. I like to put in responses like above to make a statement in regards to these thoughts, as well as to enjoy the monkys dancing.

And boy did those Monkeys dance.

Goodnight fuckers.

i wonder if a ps3 freezes, how a report can be sent? perhaps the 7th mysterious SPE processor has been put to good use? (since the PS3 uses 6 SPE's for the game, and 1 for puffy clouds). regardless, good news for PS3 users seeing that in simple reporting can hopefully lead to quicker fixes :)

Hand Banana perhaps you should spend more time working at your job and less time surfing the net. LMAO at being forced to fraternize. I could care less what you think about me personally. You can twist and spin all you want.

Bottom line is you got sand in your vagina because DM made a remark about the PS3. It hurt your feelings so much you felt the need to stick up for a corporation that doesnt give a shit about you, me, or anybody else.

I honestly could care less which console is better, gets more sales, etc... I just love to piss off the people such as yourself who take this console war so serious.

Damn it. Hand Banana called me hopeless because I dared to disagree. FML. Goodbye cruel world. I am leaving you now...
Written by Hand Banana on 2009/11/24

I think you mean you couldn't care less. Saying you COULD care less means you actually care somewhat. It's ok though, reading comprehension is a bitch sometimes. Maybe you should check out "your baby can read." It may help you.

And you think you're the only one who jsut likes to piss people off? Here is a hint: You're the victim. JFC you really are dumb.

And LOL at Incoming00. You just keep on posting on topic regadless of what the hell is going on. I love that. In response to you: Perhaps it will be similar to Windows' error reporting system? Im guessing a screen will pop up asking if you want to send the information to Sony. I'm not sure how that would work in a case where the system freezes.
