PS3 Firmware 3.41 Adds PlayStation Store Recommendations
Today Sony's Network Operations VP Eric Lempel has confirmed that PS3 Firmware Update 3.41 is coming soon alongside PSP Firmware Update 6.31, both of which will add PlayStation Store Recommendations.
To quote: The next PlayStation 3 (PS3) system software update is coming soon. Firmware update 3.41 will add recommendations for games and videos on PlayStation Store.
When you're browsing through the details of a particular title, you'll see a new "You May Like" section on the right-hand side. This section lists additional items based on the purchases of other PlayStation Network members who have purchased the item you're currently looking at.
You can then click on this section to zoom in on the list and scroll the recommended titles.
This feature is a great way to discover new games that you may not know about, and it's another step toward making the shopping experience easier and better for you all - similar to the five-star ratings feature we added in the last firmware update.
Please note that while the 3.41 update will be released shortly, the recommendations feature on PlayStation Store is slated to go live by the end of July.
In addition to this PS3 update, the next PSP (PlayStation Portable) firmware update (v.6.31) will be coming as well. This is a minor update, and system software stability during use of some PSP format software titles has been improved. As always, we look forward to your feedback.

http://dus01.ps3.update.playstation....7/PS3PATCH.PUP - there is a new PS3PATCH.PUP update that is about 40mb, and is just the incremental update (few files from dev flash, along with the core os, the revoke lists and syscon updates) - which, is probably for a few reasons.
One of which being - its less stress for everyone, Sony's servers, bandwidth, people downloading etc. Furthermore, helps with the new Auto Update stuff in PSN+ - less data to download.
