PS3 surprisingly got the new one update 4.88, which still demonstrates Sony’s support for the old console just as the whole world is thinking directly of PS5, with the inclusion of some Announcements in the firmware.
There are not information official supplied with the 4.88 update because Sony has not released any accompanying notes, but through the use of the RPCS3 emulator it was possible to obtain some details about this new firmware for PS3, with unorthodox but still effective methods.
Some references have come out that are still vague, but that at least go slightly beyond the classic “stability increase” that usually characterizes the descriptions of minor updates to the system software. In this case, these are the main points of the update:
- Update to commands for using Blu-ray of new movies on consoles
- System fixes (probable adjustments of safety)
