There’s a brand new firmware update out today for the PS3 and it’s system update 4.84. And it’s releasing on Valentine’s Day of all days. Could it be the firmware update of love? No, unfortunately it’s nothing special, though we’ve not expected anything major for the PS3 in quite some time.
The new update is the standard stability and performance update. There’s nothing special about it. In fact, many of you won’t even realise there is an update until you read this hastily written article.
What is surprising is that Sony is still even bothered to push out updates for the ancient console. It’s been out and about for over a decade now and, going by the fact that the PS4 has sold around 90 million units, most last-gen players have since moved onto the PS4. Still, for those who spend their gaming time on the PS3, it’s nice to see that Sony is still spending a bit of time and money to make sure the console remains usable. And harder for modders to hack.
