The Play Station® 3 system software is the updatable firmware and operating system of the Play Station 3.
The process of updating is almost identical to that of the Play Station Portable, Play Station Vita, and Play Station 4.
Lib GCM is a low level API, and PSGL is a higher level API, but most developers preferred to use lib GCM due to higher levels of performance.
reports that Version 4.45 of the PS3 firmware was just released on Tuesday, but already, 23 pages of responses related to the issue have been posted to the Play Station Community Forums.
While not everyone that has the new software is reporting the error, it does appear to be widespread, and we’d advise holding off on that latest software update until Sony responds.
We’ve reached out to the company for comment and will let you know as soon as we hear anything.
Update: We're seeing reports on Twitter that Sony has rolled back the 4.45 firmware, listing the earlier bug-free 4.41 version as current in System Update.
Still, it’s nice of Sony to still pump out firmware update for the console, and we imagine it may do so for some time as it’s still got quite an active following, though not many games are being made for it these days.
Note that you’ll not be able to play online or visit the Play Station Store until you’ve updated to 4.80.Check that the USB device is formatted to the File Format FAT 32 or FAT 16.The Play Station 3 will not recognize NFST File Format.Unlike the Software Development Kit (SDK) for mobile apps, Sony's Play Station 3 SDK is only available to registered game development companies and contains software tools and an integrated hardware component.Due to the fact that it requires a licensing agreement with Sony (which is considered expensive), a number of open source and homebrew PS3 SDKs are available in addition to a number of leaked PS3 SDKs.The software may be updated by downloading the update directly on the Play Station 3, downloading it from the user's local Official Play Station website to a PC and using a USB storage device to transfer it to the Play Station 3, or installing the update from game discs containing update data.
