PS3 firmware 2.17 addresses stability of online titles


Before Sony's social media manager, Jeff Rubenstein, came to the rescue via an informative blog post, our research had concluded that the latest PlayStation 3 firmware update implements the following changes:
  • Cell division by zero no longer possible
  • Cross media bar lightened up, no longer cross
  • Fun patch applied to "Go! Sky Diving"
  • Triceratops tranquilized
  • Placebo.exe installed for faster load times
Unfortunately, it seems our analysis was wholly inaccurate, as Rubenstein explained that Firmware 2.17 merely improves "the operating stability of some online PS3 titles." You'll be prompted to download the update the next time you sign on to the PlayStation Network.
