PlayStation 3 Firmware Update 4.50 Unlocks Auto-downloads for All

Posted on October 2, 2013 AT 01:56am

Sony has released firmware update 4.50 for PlayStation 3, which unlocks automatic downloads for all PlayStation Network users.

Once users have installed the update they will be able to utilize the feature that allows the PlayStation 3 to automatically download system software updates, title updates, and purchases. This feature was previously reserved for PlayStation Plus subscribers.

The update also adds new privacy settings for Trophies, allowing users to set which Trophies are visible to others. Finally it allows users to transfer data, such as games and other media, from the PlayStation 3 to PlayStation Vita via a Wi-Fi connection.
