System Update 4.21 is now available

16 Replies 2,272 Views Created 05-07-2012
Just updated mine to 4.21. It's an optional update so if you are on 4.20 you can still sign in on PSN. It's just a security patch, nothing really new here.

i dont think a security update would be optional, rather it fix some issues some ps3 users have been experiencing, sony would not make the decision to protect some users by a optional update, especially after the bad publicity the hacking scandal caused.

According to the @PlayStation Twitter account, it's an update that improves software stability. No mention of which software though.

Hi guys,

 

Yep, this is an optional update which improves system stability. There are no new features introduced with this update.

This would be patches for Software that could not update itself so requires the Firmware do it.

 

So online games whos servers are broke that have been released or are due, or for Ofline software that has now way to update itself as there is no server connection. 

O and if Auto update on PS+ is on, these optional updates will be downloaded as turning it on means you agree to download every firmware update...

I wonder when they will release a software update that allows PS Vita trophies to be viewable on the PS3 similar to how you can see the PS3 ones when on the Vita.

Lets hope it solves the stupid problems I have been having on my Slim since updating to 4.20.

 

PS3 cutting out randomly. 

No lights on the display unless you remove and re-insert power lead.
