A Sony figure called Eric Lampel announced on the 22nd April 2010 that new mandatory PlayStation 3 firmware system update is available for all interested users on PSN.
Sony continues with surprises. I will fire up my PS3 and update to the latest and the greatest system update. User agreement v1.4 – nothing new about that, accepting and checking turn off the system auto-magically after the update, and waiting … Must say that Sony could do a little more for us technical geeks. For example while we wait for download to complete we could browse through a list of new features, bug-fixes, possible new bugs, commercial about how movie downloading is the same as stealing.
Anyway since Sony doesn’t have this information available for us, Eric has a job that requires from him to pass some of this information to us. You know the tech geeks. And this is what Eric reported:
“Hi everyone, in our continued effort to provide the best, most comprehensive entertainment experience possible, we’ll be adding a few new features to PlayStation 3 (PS3) via the latest system software update, which is a mandatory update and will be available shortly.
Most notably, you’ll see some new sorting options within Trophies that make it easier to claim bragging rights among your friends on PlayStation Network.
• Trophy enhancements – Now you can more easily sort trophies in the [Trophy Collection] and [Comparing Trophy] sections. Sorting can be done with [Trophy Collection] in the [Game Category] and also when comparing trophies with your friends in the [Friend Category]
• Trophy Folder (Title List) can be sorted by game name/ by title according to the date in which you earned your last trophy (ascending/descending)
• Add-on list (Group list) can be sorted by original/the date in which you earned your last trophy (ascending/descending)
• Trophy list can be sorted by original/trophy name/grade/date of obtaining the trophy (ascending/descending)
In addition, this update preps the PS3 system for some upcoming new features, including 3D stereoscopic gaming, which is coming soon to PS3, in time for the launch of Sony’s 3D BRAVIA TVs.”
Update and you will have the capability to sort your trophies. I will never understand why is sorting called a mandatory feature.
