Download Firmware 2.42 Now | PS3Blog.net
From the PlayStation Blog:
Just wanted to give everyone a quick heads up that a PS3 firmware update (v2.42) is now available for download. This update improves the playback quality of some PLAYSTATION 3 and PlayStation format software.
It also supposedly makes the Trophies load a lot faster. I haven’t downloaded it yet so can’t confirm or deny this is true.
