    PS3 Firmware Update 3.73 is Now Released, Improves Stability

    Following up on their previous PlayStation 3 System Software update, today Sony has quietly released non-mandatory PS3 Firmware update 3.73 in both full and patch update versions which simply improves system stability.

    Download: PS3 System Software Update v3.73 (US - Full) / PS3 System Software Update v3.73 (US - Patch) / PS3 System Software Update v3.73 (EU - Full) / PS3 System Software Update v3.73 (EU - Patch)

    While the official PlayStation Blog doesn't make mention of it, their official PlayStation Twitter feed states the following to quote:

    "A new, non-mandatory PS3 firmware update, v3.73, is now available. Stability during use of certain PS3 format software has been improved."

    They are trying to cover another exploit as GrandpaHomer pointed out to the point that it is just downright pathetic and pitiful.

    That, plus it's getting annoying to many I'm sure to keep downloading updates that don't bring any new features.

    Seeing as its not mandatory that would suggest that its not security related, and as they say for stability.
