By the Way, There's a New Optional PS3 Firmware Update
Posted by Sammy Barker
... And this is why people constantly complain about the PlayStation 3’s overuse of firmware updates. If it’s not bad enough that we got a mandatory update to improve headset support (really!) less than a week ago, Sony’s announced that a new optional update is available now.
Unsurprisingly, the download does nothing other than improve “software stability”. That’s Sony speak for, “Well, we broke something in the last update so now we’re being forced to fix it.”
It’s not a big deal – you don’t have to download it, and if you do it takes about five minutes at most – but the constant stream of iterative updates is still frustrating. Especially when you consider that Sony itself seems fully aware of the frequency of firmware updates, too.
Fix this for PlayStation 4, please.
