So be honest: Did you actually read the new Terms of Service agreement that was posted in advance of Firmware update 3.72 several days ago? I’ll admit it—I didn’t! I scroll right through those things like a chump. The faster I can get to the “Accept” button, the faster I can reconnect to PSN and regain access to online gaming, the PSN store, Netflix streaming, etc. Perhaps I was overhasty on this occasion, as Sony included a rather surprising clause in the latest TOS, acceptance of which waives my right ever to join a class action lawsuit against the corporation. More details—and information about how to reclaim the aforementioned right, should you wish to do so—after the jump.
So what’s new with the latest update? Well, it’s nothing big, except for the usual system stability improvements and such. Maybe, we’ll see some secret goodies thrown in!
“A new PS3 system software update, v3.66, will be released soon,” says SCEA’s Eric Lempel, director of PlayStation Network operations, in a post over at the official PlayStation Blog. “With this minor update, system stability during use of PS3 format software and network services has been improved.”

Sony has quietly released a new firmware update for the PS3 last night in version 3.56. This is an optional update, as it only improves the operating stability of some PS3 software (I would say LA Noire) and changes SaveData Utility (minis) to [SaveData Utility(minis/PSP)]. No word on if it did anything other than that.
Users who had a PSN account before the attacks on April 20th, 2011, will be elgible for the Welcome Back rewards.
PS3 owners can download two of the following games for free:
- Dead Nation
- Little Big Planet
- Super Stardust HD
- Wipeout HD + Fury
Very important news after the jump!!!
