PS3 Firmware Update 3.41 is Released, Details Available!
Update: Unlike the previous version, according to http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-12218-Video-Game-Examiner~y2010m7d27-Hidden-features-of-firmware-341-Or-lack-thereof PS3 Firmware Update version 3.41 unfortunately does not appear to contain any 'hidden' features this time.
Earlier today Sony confirmed that PS3 Firmware Update 3.41 adds recommendations for games and videos on the PlayStation Store, and now it is officially released and available for download below.
It's important to note that while the PS3 3.41 update is released, the recommendations feature on Sony's PlayStation Store is slated to go live by the end of July, 2010.
As always, further details and any hidden PS3 features uncovered will be added as soon as they are available. Needless to say, if you are holding out in hopes for PS3 Custom Firmware and don't use your PlayStation 3 online you may wish to skip this update.
I really don't get it. How sony can release something without a changelog ?
It's like "update here and have a big surprise", some part of that surprise you will only discover a month from now.
This is how I see it - As far $ony is concerned, it doesn't matter what in the new update is. As long as they can produce FW every month or two, they think that they can put hackers back one step. It could be that they reckon that with every new FW, hackers will start over with the hacking process and thereby discourage them. Expect more FW updates soon.....
wtf.. i dont know if to cry or laugh.. A whole update just to patch on recommended games?
I always knew $ony were money pigs, but this?! "if its hard for you to find something to pay for, we will make it easier for you, and in the process of updating, you might break your console! win win for us! $ony!!"
I find it funny i need to actually update my software in order to get the store updated.. didnt they hear about web based applications? that is just hilarious.. i also thought they updated in the past so every future update for the store will be online and not per console
If i ever had hope that i might convert my hatred to $ony after all they've done ever since i purchased their launch console, it now diminished to zero..
Playstation, it only does everything not necessary but multitasking.. It's not a gaming console anymore, nor it's a good mediacenter, its just a huge money juicing machine
WTF?? Another useless update. Don´t they think we have nothing better to do than than downloading updates all the time?
So is it mandatory to get online? I know it probably is but there was an update awhile back that wasn´t mandatory.

Ya, this update seems fishy to me. I smell more security.
