Sony has released a brand new firmware update for the PS3. This new firmware update is numbered 4.76, a .01 jump from the previously released firmware update and what’s strange is that there is no changelog for it yet.
In case you still haven’t updated your PS3, we recommend to do so with a warning since there are reports out there that it can cause issues with some PS3 consoles. It is highly recommended to use a hardwired connection or USB to update to this latest firmware.
We will update this article once we have a changelog but as of right now, there is none. The last firmware update for PS3 was 4.75 and it was a “stability update” as per the support website. It is safe to assume that this latest update is also another one of the stability updates for the console.
Update: The official PlayStation 3 support website has finally been updated with the latest firmware (4.76) and as expected the changelog remains the same for it.
System software stability during use of some features has been improved.
Let us know if you have updated to the latest version of PS3 in the comments below.
