Idealo: This news is quickly told. On the official playstation.blog the director of PlayStation Network Operations, Eric Lempel, yesterday announced that a ‘PS3 firmware update (v2.42) is now available for download”.
It follows the much troubled update version 2.40 that left players with problems in game play among others on Call of Duty 4.
Nevertheless, the firmware update 2.42 for Playstation 3 is a minor one that improves the playback quality of the PS3 and ‘Playstation format software’.
Version 2.42 doesn’t come with the anticipated Life with PlayStation feature.
