Nearly 3 weeks ago, Sony released firmware 3.0 for the PlayStation 3 (the firmware specs can be viewed here). It presented itself with a new layout, which coincided with the release of the PS3 slim.
Yet, the 3.0 firmware had some issues, with the result of certain games freezing after long durations. One of most notable games, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, froze and crashed the game for many user that it actually prompted Sony to look into the issue.
Their response? Sony announced it would release firmware 3.01 to counteract the problem 3.0 introduced. While it will correct the problem for Uncharted, it also should clear up any problems with games that had issue with the old firmware. As of Monday, the firmware was released to PS3 users.
This isn’t the first time a landmark Sony firmware upgrade had issues. In July 2008, firmware 2.4 cause critical issues to the PS3 that many systems ceased to function properly. Sony then scrambled around to fix and did with firmware 2.4.1. The firmware 2.4.0 was notable because it installed the trophy system.
