PS3 update 3.72: Only firmware problems reported are lack of features

By Daniel Chubb - Sep 20, 2011

Within the last few hours another Sony software update has gone live, this is for PS3 firmware 3.72, and the update is said to be just a minor improvement. The new firmware uses just 190MB of storage, although to play games online you’ll need to download the update.

The only improvement being reported is for PlayStation 3 playback quality when in use with certain format software, and while keeping system stability at its best is great, we cannot help feeling disappointed as extra features are always welcomed.

So if you’re reading this and are planning some gaming today, then it’s a good idea to get on slightly earlier so you can get the PS3 v3.72 update installed sooner, rather than later. Do you think this update was to keep ahead of the modders/hackers? Let us know if you had any problems installing the new firmware, and what has not worked right since the last install like PS auto updates.

We can think of a few features that this update could have brought, but for now lets look towards PS3 update 3.80, what would you like to see? Cross game chat is on top of our list, but do you have anything less obvious?

Update: Some of our readers have reported issues with the manual PS3 time being an hour behind, although this PS3 update seems to have fixed that now. Another issue is with PlayStation Home freezing, which has not been fixed according to some people.
