Yes, you read that title right, the PlayStation 3 has received a new firmware update which brings this legacy system’s version number to 4.85. Just a few days ago Sony also updated the amazing but already forgotten Vita’s firmware.
Both of these updates don’t add anything new or exciting to these two aging systems and instead only bring some improvements for the performance of the systems (A.K.A making hacking/piracy harder). This means wannabe console hackers/modders will have a slightly harder time tinkering with the system files, even if it’s only for an hour or so after the firmware release, that, said difficulty exist.
If you’re still running a PlayStation 3 or even a Vita, make sure to fire it up and install this new and ever so exciting update that brings a world of performance issue fixes your way. If you’re wanting to hack your console (shame on you) then avoid this update. Remember kids piracy hurts the gaming industry a lot, so don’t be a dick.
