Sony latest firmware update 3.41 is now LIVE. This update will add recommendations for games and videos on the PlayStation Store. Similar to Amazon or even our own site, you’ll see a “You may like” section which will show you other titles similar to what you’ve purchased through the store beforehand. Mind readers!
This feature is a great way to discover new games that you may not know about, and it’s another step toward making the shopping experience easier and better for you all — similar to the five-star ratings feature we added in the last firmware update. Please note that while the 3.41 update will be released shortly, the recommendations feature on PlayStation Store is slated to go live by the end of July.
In addition to this PS3 update, the next PSP (PlayStation Portable) firmware update (v.6.31) will be coming as well. This is a minor update, and system software stability during use of some PSP format software titles has been improved
I’ll be very interested to find out what other “updates” or holes they’ve plugged up. Sometime these updates lead to software manipulation we’re not being told about. Maybe it’s been out but I just noticed you can preview some games too. A sample similar to the video section where it shows off some gameplay before you download the demo. Has this been around since 3.40?
The update will take approximately 15 minutes to download and install pending your ISP. I happen to be on cable, so yes, I’m better than you DSL jerks out there. I was a bit surprised to see this update before the PSN “Tuesday” updates. Not sure what the rush was, but I’m guessing a PSN title coming out tomorrow was partially dependent on 3.41.
What do you think of this latest update? Still waiting on in-game voice chat? I am!
