PS3 Firmware Update 4.00
Getting ready for the Vita Japanese release? Well, The new PS3 software update was released yesterday to get your PS3 ready for the arrival of the PS Vita. According to the official PlayStation blog, “update (v4.00) will prepare your PS3 to serve as a content management device”. That basically means that you will be able to save all your digital content (music, movies, saved data, games …) between your PS3 and the PS Vita. You will also be able to update your Vita using the PS3 network. Although the main theme for this update is introducing the PS Vita management system to your PS3, but there will be some other features (mainly for PlayStation Plus members) installed in the process, as after the update PS+ members will be able to choose to enable of disable each of the previous (v3.72) automatic update features (game patches, software update, Sync trophies …). There will be also a “new PlayStation Network setting for filtering friend requests and messages” for all users.
