- Periodically Sony includes interim retail PS3 Firmware updates on PS3 game discs and console region revisions.
Examples include PS3 Firmware 1.02 (on launch title Game Discs including Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom), 1.11 (on early JAP PS3 consoles), and 1.55 (on early 60GB PS3 consoles). These never make it to actual PS3 Firmware updates via PSN, as they generally only contain a minor change/bugfix.
Today we have another one of these cases- PS3 Firmware 2.16 Update was extracted from a Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (EUR) Game Disc and uploaded to the Internet. No, it doesn't contain any 'supersecret holes' (lol) and it unpacks just like all the rest do with PS3 Update Unpacker v1
but for the collectors out there it's available below- enjoy!
