PS3 Firmware 3.30 Revealed; Trophy Enhancements Abound

April 21, 2010 Written by Cameron Teague

The latest firmware update for the PlayStation 3 is “coming soon” according to PlayStation Network Operations Director Eric Lempel and with it comes a slew of updates geared towards the trophy hunter in all of us.  Details of the update have been released and it looks to be a pretty solid update for those looking to brag on their trophies a bit easier.

Even though the update is listed as “coming soon” you can expect the update to become available either tonight or tomorrow night, as that is the recent trend with these firmware announcements.

The update details are as follows:

  • 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.

The PS3 US Blog looks to be down at the moment but we will keep you posted on any changes.
