As expected the new firmware that we posted about a few days ago has go live. You now update to version 3.66 which adds some minor updates. This post it self is a little late but if you haven’t updated yet and don’t want to do it via your PS3, then head past the break for the links and directions for updating via a USB drive.
The 3.66 Update includes:
- A minor update that fixes the playback of some games, increase networking performance and I’m sure some security fixes.
How to install direct download Firmware onto Ps3:
- Before starting, use your PC to create a folder named ‘PS3′ on the storage media or USB device. Within the folder, create a folder named ‘UPDATE’ (This folder name is case sensitive and must appear in all capital letters). Once the UPDATE folder has been created, download the PS3 system software update (The link above) to this location.
- Once the update data has been saved, disconnect the storage device and connect it to your PS3 via the slots under the slot cover or the USB connectors depending on the device you’re using.
- Once connected, navigate to Settings on the PS3 Home Menu, select [System Update] and then [Update via Storage Media]. Select the connected device and your PS3 will install the update data stored there.
