New PS3 Firmware Update
We know that many of you don't yet have a PS3, but if you're one of the lucky owners, it's time for a firmware update. The update, v1.11, is available today and sports an Account Management System icon for your Friends list. Apparently, this feature was already in place due to previous firmware versions, but they've just made it easier to find.
And while we can't be positive until we take care of the update ourselves, PS3 users believe the update may have addressed something else: some gamers have reported the browser now loads pages faster, and the download is apparently quite long. IGN reported a 5-minute wait on their download, so we'll be sure to check this out when we get the chance.
Check back this afternoon when we update this story once our firmware download is complete.
