For those who just signed in to PlayStation Network, PS3 Firmware update 3.42 is now available to download.

This should be easily testable on an already Updated PS3: Format the harddrive in a PC, and try to reinstall it with the 3.41 update on the PS3, i think?


imo fw is partly loaded to internal, so u cant thats easy just downgrade fw, but if the system update fails mid update and just starts over and over u can get back to the one u were updating from, anyhow heard some ppl claiming to be able to go down fw by formatting harddrive but i guess thats some older machines cuz now it isnt really possible no? correct me if im wrong if it was that easy there wouldent be ppl not updating even from 1.60 xD

the playstation plus will auto download it but it will ask you to confirm the installation so you will be safe there fella as you can always say no.
