Firmware 3.55 Has Arrived – Adds Security Patch


SONY has released a new firmware which doesn’t do much according to reports, other than patches a few security holes. However, there may be a few things that may appear overtime in this firmware as we’ve in the past seen hidden features/functionality being slipped in firmware updates. I’ve not yet spotted the firmware update on my actual PS3, however. Here are some links to the firmware itself if you wish to download it to USB and install:

FW v3.55 (US) | FW v3.55 (EU)

    it might currently be an optional update, so you would have to manually check the system update area

    @Jay: It’s not optional. I tried to sync my trophies last night and it asked me to go and download the firmware update. Same with PSN.

    Also, the firmware MIGHT be patching in the Rewards Quests so everyone is set since they will go live once the PSN Store updates tonight.
