189w ago - It's been about six weeks since the last PlayStation 3 System Software update surfaced, and today Sony Network Entertainment VP Eric Lempel has announced that PS3 Firmware 3.72 update is incoming.

The only details we have at the moment on it are what appear to be security updates, so those into PS3 Custom Firmware, downgrading, hacking and homebrew may want to hold off updating as usual.

Here is what he stated on PS3 System Software Update version 3.72, to quote:

"A new PS3 system software update, v3.72, will be released soon. With this minor update, system stability during use of PS3 format software and network services has been improved."

As soon as it goes live we will update this post with further details and the download link as always!

PS3 3.72 Firmware Update Features:

Playback quality during use of some PlayStation 3 format software has been improved.

Note: Depending on the software title, you may not be able to play without first updating the PS3 system software. Do not perform updates using any data other than the official update data provided by Sony Computer Entertainment over a network or on disc media, and do not perform updates by methods other than those described in the product documentation or in this site.

If an update is performed using data from another source, by another method, or with a PS3 system that has been altered or modified in any way, the PS3 system may not operate properly and may not be able to install the official update data. Any of these actions may void the PS3 system warranty and affect your ability to obtain warranty services and repair services from Sony Computer Entertainment.

From Sony's Web site, to quote: "Depending on the software title, you may not be able to play without first updating the PS3 system software.

Do not perform updates using any data other than the official update data provided by Sony Computer Entertainment over a network or on disc media, and do not perform updates by methods other than those described in the product documentation or in this site.

If an update is performed using data from another source, by another method, or with a PS3 system that has been altered or modified in any way, the PS3 system may not operate properly and may not be able to install the official update data.

Any of these actions may void the PS3 system warranty and affect your ability to obtain warranty services and repair services from Sony Computer Entertainment."

Finally, for those having issues with Netflix after updating, simply do the following to reset it:

1. Start Netflix from the PS3 and immediately hold the Start and Select buttons together.
2. It should ask you if you want to Reset Netflix.
3. Select yes and you will need to re-enter your Netflix email and password.
4. It should then start working.

Nothing really, on the PS website it mentions it improves playback of PS3 software but there has been no obvious changes.

The one in the OP, it's basically an incremental update patch to save users on 3.7 from having to download the full 3.72
