The latest PlayStation 3 firmware update will fix two critical issues that have been plaguing PS3 gamers for the last decade. Director of PlayStation Network Operations Eric Lempel posted an update on PlayStation Blog stating that firmware version 2.52 will fix text entry issues with “some PS3 format software” and enhance the playback quality of other software.

This update comes at a pivotal time for PS3 owners, who have had to put up with subpar text messaging in Resistance 2. As we all know, the Chimera can’t speak English, but it’s important to realize that they do enjoy brief, concise, and humorous messages. Furthermore, the Chimera are overly fond of acronyms spawned by prolonged Internet usage. We have yet to sit a member of the alien horde down for response on the update because it keeps killing our staff members.

It’s good to know that Sony is staying on top of these things -- even if it’s as simple as text entry or playback functionality. Were any of you experiencing these problems?
