Playstation 3 To Release New Software Update

Posted on June 25, 2012 AT 09:04pm

Sony announced that there will be an upcoming software update for the Playstation 3. While not a large change, like any of the previous updates were, the new update (v4.20) will have a few new features.

Included in this update are an upgraded file management system, allowing players to group their files together to delete or copy as a group. It will also allow for the system to be set to a timer, turning itself off automatically when put under different settings for gaming or for music and movies.

Another big feature will be the use of “sidetones” (which allow you to hear your own voice while on microphone), allowing multi-level audio settings for use in multiplayer. This feature will also be used to help with surround sound while using the wireless stereo headset that is compatible with the console.

Frankly, it’s about time. many of these features came standard with the Xbox 360 or one of the newer slim Xbox 360 models (such as the file grouping and the timer), and for Sony to be getting with the program this late is pretty disappointing. Hopefully Sony will be a bit quicker to get to these types of things in the future.

The update will be going live tomorrow.

If someone looked up "awesome" in the dictionary, his picture wouldn't be there, but that's because he's too busy being awesome to pose for a photo.
