For not having had any sort of firmware update since February, that's a whole lot of not very much.

This is it for the XMB really isn't it? I have to admit I was kind of hoping for some kind of tidied up XMB or redesigned XMB announcement during E3. Sony have shown a general apathy toward the interface for so long now I think this is it for PS3 and we won't see anything new until whatever PS4 has.

It has since February, or is the 3DS higher than 92/100? PS3 is 99/100 last I checked.

Yeah, pretty much. I'm sure you could get jeff_rigby to explain how there's going to be a major overhaul in the fall, but he was saying that last year too. And even if there is a huge update, it'll still probably have the XMB as the interface.

My kinda update.

At least it adds a few things other than increased software stability. It's been awhile since we've seen any new features or improvements.

The new features are welcome, but one must wonder if we'll ever see a significant firmware update for PS3 ever again.

Could have used this last week! Traded in my old PS3 for a new one. Would have saved so much time backing up my saves.

At least it'll help when copying my saves back to the PS3. Never really got around to it yet

Looks genuine to me. Remember, the new stereo headset requires 4.20 so...

* BassImpact™ technology, 7.1 virtual surround sound & on-screen headset updates are only available on the PS3™ system and require system software version 4.20 or later.

Is that Wireless Stereo Headset item supposed to fix the horrible "mic feedback" they stupidly put in earlier this year that completely ruined the headset sound? I'm interested in that headset but passed on it because they completely fucked it up. If it's fixed I can put it back on my wishlist ;)
