The year may be 2023, but Sony’s just released a new firmware update for the PS3! No, that’s not a typing error: the Japanese giant has just updated its 17-year-old last-last-gen system. Don’t expect any major new features in version 4.90, though: this one is all about that all-important stability. “This system software update improves system performance,” the official documentation reads.

We imagine this is just plugging security holes, but it’s absurd to see a system this old being updated almost two decades later. Remember, the platform holder had hoped to close down the console’s PS Store a couple of years ago, but a vocal fan backlash caused the company to course correct. It’ll now remain open for the foreseeable future.
