PS3 Firmware 4.80 is now out. The EU and US Official Playstation sites still have to update their firmware pages and still reference firmware 4.78 as the latest one, but the Japanese Playstation firmware update page has the latest news, and here’s what it has to say about firmware 4.80:
What, that’s not clear? Hey, you don’t really need to be bilingual here to know what this really is about, but I’ll help: 安定性 means “stability”.
Yeah. It’s one of those updates.
Playstationlifestyle report that this update might be bringing 2 factor authentication, a security measure for sign-in that is becoming the standard nowadays, but this hasn’t been confirmed, and again, the official site only says it’s a stability update.
There’s no report yet about this update patching any known security vulnerability or exploit.
I can’t wait for the next time I get to turn my PS3 on, just so I can watch the update screen for 25 minutes before I get to play.
