PS3 Firmware Update 4.81 Improves “Quality” of System Performance

That’s pretty much it.

A new update has been released for the PlayStation 3 as of today. Yes, you read that right – the previous generation Sony console. Update 4.81 requires 200 MB minimum on your hard disk drive or removable storage media.

What does it do? According to the (now removed) release notes, “This system software update improves the quality of the system performance.”

Which is pretty vague but the PlayStation 4 receives updates like this all the time that apparently improve “stability”. As of now, users on forums like NeoGAF haven’t reported any major changes. At this point, major changes shouldn’t really be expected for the PS3 but it’s good to see Sony still supporting the console all the same.

What are your thoughts on the latest update? Does it indeed improve the quality of your system’s performance or did you not even notice it was there? Let us know your insightful thoughts in the comments below.

    My ps3 has hard frozen at least 5 times since the update while trying to watch Vue. I do not consider this an improvement

    damn this update is taking time and i’m surfing the web ’bout it. I hope they release a 5.0 version soon. OR it may be a virus which will execute eventually and kill the ps3 and we’ll have to buy the ps4 or the ps4 neo (maybe)
