Sony have released a new firmware fairly quietly via their Twitter feed. The reason for this may be because the new firmware isn’t mandatory and is optional. Firmware 3.73 simply adds the improved stability of certain PS3 software. Below we have the direct link for you if you wish to update.
The 3.73 Update includes:
- Better system stability during the running of various PS3 software.
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.
