“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 youâ€™re browsing through the details of a particular title, youâ€™ll see a new â€œYou May Likeâ€ 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 youâ€™re currently looking at.”
“This feature is a great way to discover new games that you may not know about, and itâ€™s another step toward making the shopping experience easier and better for you all â€” 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.
