Do i need to update a ps3 to play new games?

7 Replies 246 Views Created 08-06-2007
i don't have fast internet (at the momment) due to a poor phone line. and updating through a memory stick or ps3 would take forever. but will i ever need to update or will a new update come on the new game disk?

Don't think you need to, only PSP does that.

There might be PS3 games in the future whereby they update the console in order to play like a PSP does sometimes.

i think in future months if the ps3 FW gets hacked and loads of updates start coming along you will need to keep the FW up to date, but the latest version will always be carried on game disks anyway

but with linux available there shouldnt be too much point in hacking the FW

It really doesn't take that long, like 5-10 mins max!
