A new PS3 firmware has been released by Sony. This is version 4.40 and it is mandatory to download for all PS owners.
At this point it is unclear about the changes this firmware update will make to your PlayStation. However, you will be glad to know that this update is relatively short. It won’t take long to download them.
So far, not even Sony has detailed the contents of this latest firmware update. Only thing that we have found so far is this page on the Japanese blog.
Apparently this firmware update is to defend against a security hole or exploit that could have been used by a hacker.
We will keep you informed when more information becomes available.
