I think he's got a new ps3? or he's on about firmware 3.10 (friends list changed, photo thumbnails changed, facebook features).

I don't understand why people say the PS3 updates take long? I download on pc stick it onto a USB and then install it takes about say 10-15 minutes? And seriously can you not do anything else for atleast 30-45 mins?
#3

I download


Present tense.
That's my method for downloads usually.
They come up on the website after a while from the console version so if you can wait download from pc when its released

Think that everybody is downloading this one as it takes for ever...so i gave up after 10% in 15mins.
Will try again over next few days.
3.10 showing in uk
#16
Amen to that, I switched mine on the other day after like 3 months, connected to the internet, 15 minutes worth of downloading and installing updates and restarts. Go to play a game, needs updating, which takes forever - turned off, turned 360 straight on and within 1 minute I'm playing a game.

Good for one thing....Blu-Ray and internet.

And shorter loading times.
Oh and I can actually hear myself think thanks to the console being quiet.

Yeah I suppose, I have nothing against the games and stuff, but I'd rather have longer loading times than having to install the games and stuff.

My elite is pretty quiet though...either that or I've gotten used to it.

I'd rather have shorter loading times its better in the long run mines only take about 15-20 minutes so don't bother me anyway.

Uncharted 2 has the LONGEST loading times i've seen (It doesn't have an option to install?) but theres no loading once you've clicked new game on story mode. right?

I can see where your coming from, but its like you need to play your PS3 quite regularly to experience how good it is. Where as you could buy your 360 from the shops tomorrow, set it all up and within 10 minutes (after creating your avatar and stuff) your ready to go, updates take....3-4 seconds?

I get what you mean mate but
What if you have wireless only setup?
Or you don't have any AA batteries and your batteries go flat?

Not exactly out the box but still a great online experience

You get free batteries initially and the new jasper chipset for the xbox is quiet and old xbox's weren't majorly loud anyway, just ps3 fanboys looking for a con for xbox's. Load times aren't much quicker on ps3 as most games load very fast on xbox anyway can't see that 5 seconds for fallout 3 can be improved much more maybe a second or two & for games like that that load frequently you can install to HDD making it faster to load than PS3 and quiter.

Why does it take so long is the PS3 built in adapter really slow or something ?

Even when I didnt even know PS3s were quiet I thought the xbox 360 was loud but not hearing a PS3 I took no notice.
I have both and the xbox 360 does p me off! (I play it nearly every day as I have modern warfare 2 on that console because the online is better and most of my friends have it on 360)
LOL You make me laugh at that comment. Experiment if you wish
#27
No I meant it took one minute literally 60 seconds I said an hour was stupid lol

Christmas comes early for HUKDers.

It's official, so no worrys, downloaded in 10 mins and it works and installs pretty quickly.
#29
And Ryman you can install on the ps3 and the ps3 is better because we use blu ray whereas you're stuck with DVD and sone ps3 are noisy some quiet that's just the way it is

But installing to the HDD does do what I said ? The old xbox's were quite loud the ones within the last year or so are much, much quiter. When did you purchase your xbox ?

restart your ps3 :thumbsup:

Without joining the fanboy debate. The difference is probably that XBOX Live is backed by a load of fee paying customers, therefore they have money for better servers etc. whereas PSN is free, so it's probably less powerful.

Not sure, because I've never played on a Gaybox so have no idea about connection problems. :)

There are differences in game i.e. graphics - PS3 has some games that look better and vice versa - So that arguement is invalid.

The main differences are these.

Games available on each console are different (minus games that are on both)
Controllers are different from each other
PS3 has BluRay + WLAN included
If your friends have a PS3, your more likely to get a PS3 and vice versa

You like a game on the PS3? Get a PS3. You like Halo? Get a 360. You like PS3 controller? Get a PS3. Your mates have a 360? Get a 360 etc etc.

Honestly, stop this child like console fanboism, and choose with your head for various reasons which console you want.

There is a problem with ps3 downloads straight to the machine sometimes. Well the update side of things for games. For me it's also slow for firmware direct to ps3. Anyone that has not encountered it is either lucky, blind or just about dumb enough to claim it has never happened to them when they know it has.
