Playstation 3 Firmware Update – June 26, 2012


Get your Playstation 3’s ready for a brand new update coming tomorrow, June 26, 2012. A forum post on NEOGAF suggests that the new (version 4.20) update will come with a bunch of new fixes as well as some cool functionality features for your wireless headset, some more settings for how long your Playstation 3 will auto-off and our personal favorite: copy multiple saved games. You can read the full list of features after the break.

– When the wireless stereo headset (CECHYA-0080) is connected, you can now adjust the sidetone level for microphone audio. Select [Sidetone] under (Settings) > (Accessory Settings) > [Audio Device Settings].
