Sony platforms definitely do not stick to any sort of set schedule with its updates across the three platforms of the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita, unlike Xbox’s almost monthly updates. Instead, Sony typically reveals smaller updates at best a few days ahead of time and larger updates maybe a little bit more in advance. The PS3 is the lucky PlayStation platform this time, as it has received another upgrade with system update 4.75.
The vast majority of PS3 updates are minimal at best and 4.75 is definitely that yet again. While the update is available in the US, the US PlayStation website has not updated with details of the patch. However, thanks to the Japanese website we know exactly what this latest update has done.
PS3 system update 4.75 is once again a stability update, aiming to make the console run all the better. It doesn’t appear from this changelog that anything else has been added this time around.
With the number of major games coming to PS3 getting smaller and smaller, one has to wonder if we will get any more detailed updates for that platform outside of simple stability updates such as these. The PS4 is definitely the focus for Sony now, so it will be interesting to see what they reveal at E3 about any upcoming updates.
