PS3 PlayStation 3 Firmware Update 1

Sony has updated the PlayStation 3, its classic console originally released in 2006. The new firmware update – numbered v4.87 – actually includes a new feature as well: it updates the Blu-ray keys for recent movie releases, meaning you can continue to use the system as a media player. There’s also a minor security fix that the manufacturer has sewn up.

Are you still using your PS3 regularly? What are you doing with it these days? Are you still playing games on the console, or are you using it primarily as a Blu-ray player? Share some love for the retro (!) system in the comments section below, and let us know whether you’ve updated your firmware yet.
