Ps3 system software update (v4.20) out on june 26th
One of the biggest gripes about the Playststion 3 has been that sometimes it feels like every single time you turn on the system you have to do a system update. This is mainly due to super tough security standards that Sony has on its system. This is especially true if you either do not play very much, or you do not have PS Plus which features an auto download function.
So tomorrow we are getting another system update v4.20. Before you go celebrate the update stay here and read about what the update entails:
- Will improve sidetone audio performance by giving you the option to select one out of five levels for microphone audio, or turn the feature off completely. For those of you who use the Wireless Stereo Headset to watch Blu-ray or DVD movies on your PS3, this system software update will also enable virtual surround sound functionality, giving you a superior audio experience.
- Allow you to set the amount of time that the system will wait before turning itself off automatically for [Video/TV/Music/Photo] and for [Game/Other Features].
- Saved data management has been improved. You will now be able to select multiple saved data items and delete or copy them as a group.
So there you go. Nothing awesome like cross game chat, nothing lame like improved system stability, even though this one has that. Some of you will enjoy this, most won’t care. I would love for them to come out with more optional ones and only have mandatory ones about once every 6 months.
