Sony releases vague PS3 2.42 firmware update

Posted by Wolfgang Gruener

Sony released the next firmware update for its PS3 game console. We will print the entire release description provided by Sony’s Eric Lempel here:

“Just wanted to give everyone a quick heads up that a PS3 firmware update (v2.42) is now available for download. This update improves the playback quality of some Playstation 3 and Playstation format software.”

The firmware download page on playstation.com still listed v2.41 as the most current software version at the time of this writing. “Some” Playstation 3 and Playstation format software? Perhaps we could convince Eric to provide a few more sentences of information?

It appears to be a minor update, but just in case you haven’t upgraded to version 2.4 yet and intend to play online, you may want to download this update – as it is required for online gaming, if we believe the comments made in the user comments of the posting.
