Reviving the Legacy: Sony Releases New PlayStation 3 Firmware Update (Version 4.90)

After nearly 17 years in the gaming industry, Sony has confirmed that its PlayStation 3 console is far from dead. On 28th February 2023, the company released a new firmware update (Version 4.90) specifically designed to improve the performance of the now outdated console.

How to Download and Install PlayStation 3 Firmware Update (Version 4.90)

To benefit from the improved system performance promised by this update, you will need a minimum of 200MB of free space on either the PS3 Hard Disk Drive (System Update) or removable storage media for PC updates.

Sony highlights that this firmware update focuses on enhancing system performance, a goal that has sparked debate over the extent of improvements possible for a console launched in 2006. While it’s challenging to predict significant advancements for a 17-year-old console, data from popular tracking sites indicates that Red Dead Redemption remains the most active PlayStation 3 title. Other beloved games like Minecraft, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and Grand Theft Auto IV continue to hold a place in the hearts of gamers.
