Sony Adds Incremental Update Version PS3 Patch PUP Updates


Sponsored Links
209w ago - Along with the PS3 Firmware 3.41 update, today Sony implemented Incremental Update Version PS3 patch PUP updates, with the less bulky PlayStation 3 update files named appropriately as "PS3PATCH.PUP."

As detailed by randalf HERE, CJPC HERE, and Examiner.com (linked below), the new [Register or Login to view links] are approximately 40MB in size in comparison to [Register or Login to view links] 160MB+ PS3 Firmware update files and only update required dev_flash files, along with the core OS, revoke lists and syscon updates.

The benefit is simple: Both Sony's servers and customers save bandwidth and time downloading required PS3 update files along with aiding PSN Plus subscribers who utilize auto-updating.

To quote from [Register or Login to view links]: "Previously, all firmware updates were incremental and they built off each other since the original firmware, but Sony has revised that concept and firmware updates will now only download what is needed from the latest firmware opposed to downloading the entire firmware.

Firmware 3.41 only needed around 40MB of information, so the system only downloaded that much, opposed to 200MB of additional information from previous firmwares.

This will allow for smaller updates, faster downloads, and PlayStation Plus subscribers an easier time with auto-downloads."

So was 3.41 the first incremental update then? I didn't really pay attention to how fast it went since I usually start the update and then go do something else.

If that's the case, then I wouldn't be surprised if the HDD upgrade issues in 3.41 were related to that.

Yes, it was the first incremental update. In theory- no, the incremental update should not have messed up the HDD in any way, just a partial vs full replace of identical (between 3.41 full and incremental) files.

I think the biggest reason for sony is bandwidth.. If they can 1/2 or even slice the patch to 1/4th, it saves them a lot LOT of bandwidth, which means less costs...
