Sponsored Links
180w 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.

Download: PS3 System Software Update v3.72 (US) / PS3 System Software Update v3.72 (EU) / PS3 Firmware 3.72 Update Patch (US) / PS3 Firmware 3.72 Update Patch (EU)

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.

No, it isn't possible. The only way to disable it are the new ps3 with metloader 2, but probably they could also be downgraded in other way.

I think only new ps3 with metloader2 cannot be downgraded now (probably in the future you can do it). No, sony cannot patch all the consoles, I think no new firmware can stop the work of it.

I don't understand the utility of this new firmware, it does not bring any new feature.

Found them... Good news! I compared the files with some files on the 20GB PS3's that support software emulation. Guess what... it's almost the same! This might work out real nice

Sony did trademark something related to BC on Ps3 over a year ago that could have hinted to some other accesory to run BC, but nothing ever came of it, if what you found would hint to them doing any with that who knows...

I ran unpkg on core_os_package.pkg and those two files were unpacked, among the usual.

Were did you find them? I extracted these but they did not show up

There looks to be two new files added inside of the Core_OS_Package, I only have 3.66 for comparison but Sony could be working on something with ps3 emulation for those without backward compatibility.
