PS3 Firmware Update 3.40 with PlayStation Plus: Download now

By Peter Chubb - Jun 29, 2010

Sony PS3 firmware update 3.40 is now available for download and comes with PlayStation Plus. It is hoped that this latest update offers the most complete entertainment experience yet, and with a connection to your Facebook account it is not hard to see why.

We spoke a little about the new PlayStation Plus feature recently – with many users wondering what they will get for the $50 yearly subscription. All you need to know is that you will have access to new beta games before anyone else, as well as free game downloads per month.

This is not the only important feature in this latest update; there is Photo Gallery, Video Editor & Uploader, Five Star Rating Support and new Power Save Settings. Looking back it shows that this is one of the best updates yet, but do you agree?

If you have not turned your console on this morning, then you had best do so now. Once you have downloaded PS3 firmware update 3.40 please share with our readers what you think.

  • Can’t wait to install the 3.40 firmware. But it sucks that Sony removed installing other OS last time and didn’t bring it back again.

    I have the old 60GB FAT PS3 and it's never had a problem updating to the latest firmware 3.40. 🙂

    I think that I dont want to break my ps3 with this update. Is it safe to even update? I have heard a lot of people complaining about this update. Can anyone tell me exactly what ps3s 40,60,80gb,Slim? or how many ps3s have been affected and how to avoid it.
