Sony: PS3 and PSP firmware update coming soon |


Sony is set to release a new firmware update for both the PlayStation 3 and PSP “shortly”. According to Eric Lempel, VP, Network Operations Americas, the upcoming PS3 firmware update 3.41 will add a new PlayStation Store recommendations features for games and videos, while the PSP firmware update will further improve the stability some titles:

See what he said after the jump.

“Hi everyone, the next PlayStation 3 (PS3) system software update is coming soon. Firmware update 3.41 will add recommendations for games and videos on PlayStation Store. When you’re browsing through the details of a particular title, you’ll see a new “You May Like” section on the right-hand side. This section lists additional items based on the purchases of other PlayStation Network members who have purchased the item you’re currently looking at.”

“This feature is a great way to discover new games that you may not know about, and it’s another step toward making the shopping experience easier and better for you all — similar to the five-star ratings feature we added in the last firmware update. Please note that while the 3.41 update will be released shortly, the recommendations feature on PlayStation Store is slated to go live by the end of July.”

“In addition to this PS3 update, the next PSP (PlayStation Portable) firmware update (v.6.31) will be coming as well. This is a minor update, and system software stability during use of some PSP format software titles has been improved.”

So there you have it folks. Stay tune for the update.

  • Soon meaning today?

  • Sengoku

    yeah it’s up already.
    to bad it’s nothing major, like cross game chat that should have been in plus anyway!

  • Wish the 5 star system was limited to only people who actualy have the title/item. That way the Stars will be a little more honest and acurate.

  • @ Sinlock – I tried to rate something I didn’t have, and it wouldn’t let me. Though if you do have something, you can rate it multiple times…

  • Any ideas of the size of this update? Hope it does not spoil my RDR gaming time… 😀

  • Sinlock

    Update only took about 8 mins, so with Brazil Internet make that 23mins.

  • EdEN

    And that’s it? Now then can tell you which games you might like. An update JUST for that?

  • @Sinlock Heck, I’ll miss 23 minutes of RDR playtime…

  • Its a pretty silly update but I guess it could be helpful at times.

  • EdEN

    IF the update is mandatory to enter the Store then I guess I’ll have to update. If not then I’ll wait since it’s a very small “feature”.
