    The Update 4.11 is to fix some issues related to the PS Vita connectivity
    and more unified system -> SEN Transfer Files

    Actually Sony want to give the possibility to play some PS Vita Games directly on the PS3

    I would like to see some more details what they explicit changed from 4.10 to 4.11. But I think they may explain it later here (

    I have compared the dev_flash file from the updates to try and pickup any clues on what has changed.

    1. The "Resource" folder has not changed so it is very likely that the update just does behind the scene maintenance, rather than adding to the user interface.
    2. emulation files for ps2/psp have not changed in size. Though ps1 emulation files have increased in size.
    3. As expected some of the sprx files have changed in size, but nothing significant usually around 100bytes. (the vsh.self has increased in size by 160bytes).
    4. The web browser related files have not changed in size.

    This update most likely just does maintenance. It's highly unlikely anything new was added. Have a nice day!

    Maybe it's the reason because was not mandatory (but a brit guy said it's mandatory for SEN UK)

    p.s. Shouldn't this forum section be renamed PlayStation 3 & SEN News?

    You're right ! We have to change the "PlayStation 3 PSN News" into "PlayStation 3 PSN / SEN News".

    It's interlinked with the Portal categories etc... so not worth the effort to change PSN to SEN as it would cause a load of issues.
