Official Firmware 3.66 Arrives
, Vice President of Sony Network Entertainment, just announced on the official Sony blog, that a new firmware update
is coming very soon. The proposed update will be version 3.66
, but it doesn't appear to have any new ground breaking features. Eric stated that the new update will make PS3 game playback more stable. In addition, he went on to state that the network services have also been improved.
It is possible that the new update is actually a security update in response to the recent Quality Assurance mode hacks. However, it would seem hard to believe that Sony could respond this quickly. Regardless, we recommend that users do not update to version 3.66 if they intend to keep the ability to jailbreak/exploit their consoles.
The firmware is now live and available for download.
A new PS3 system software update, v3.66, will be released soon. With this minor update, system stability during use of PS3 format software and network services has been improved.
