Budding Twitter critics rejoice: Sony’s announced a new firmware update for the PlayStation 3. The minor – dare we say meaningless – download bumps the hardware up to version 4.11 and brings with it improvements to “certain aspects of [the] system software”. Not a lot, then.

Bizarrely, the update’s optional in North America and mandatory in Europe. We’re not sure why there’s the discrepancy between regions.

Still, we look forward to reading the inevitable exaggerated Twitter posts on our timeline. No, it does not take five hours to download and install a PS3 firmware update. Stop whining.
