The PlayStation 3 firmware update v1.93 has been released.
The PS3 firmware update will correct network issues that resulted from the previous firmware. A download is recommended.
Due to the regular releases of updates to the system’s software, the majority of the time newly purchased consoles will not have the latest version of the system software installed. However, any games that require a specific version of the system software will include the update required on the game disc. For example, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction featured v1.94. This update was only available via this game and the only feature it added to prior updates was DualShock 3 controller support, as this was the first game to support the controller without needing an update to the game itself.
