Download: PS3 Firmware 4.41 Update (US) / PS3 Firmware 4.41 Update (EU)

In a nutshell, PS3 Firmware 4.41 is a minor PlayStation 3 update that will improve system stability. I just got prompted to do a system update. Looks like no online until some PS3 CFW news appears, however, the encryption keys and the passphrase is still the same.

Below is what the Tweet states, to quote: "PS3 software update v4.41 is coming today, it's a minor update that will improve system stability."

As always, more details and an official changelog will be posted once they become available.

The Last of Us: American Dreams Comic Book Issue #1 Out Now

54w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has announced today that The Last of Us: American Dreams comic book issue #1 is out now.

Below are the details, to quote: We're proud to share the news that the first issue of The Last of Us: American Dreams - a comic book series published by Dark Horse Comics and jointly written by Naughty Dog Creative Director Neil Druckmann and the talented Faith Erin Hicks - is in stores now.

The series art is also by Faith, with colors by Rachelle Rosenberg, lettering by Clem Robins, and the stunning covers by Julián Totino Tedesco.

Trust us when we say that American Dreams doesn't spoil any of the story found in The Last of Us game, and instead gives you a great introduction to Ellie and her life as told through events inside the quarantine zone taking place prior to the game.

I have to say, even though I've been able to watch the American Dreams series take shape over the past several months as we worked on it with Dark Horse Comics, it was still no less awesome to finally see it in front of me and read Issue #1 as an actual, real comic book.

Brendan Wright, Editor of The Last of Us: American Dreams, has a great blog post over on the Dark Horse Web site that introduces...
