A new firmware update for the PlayStation 3 is now available to download. According to Eric Lempel, Director of PSN Operations, the minor update is to "improve stability of some PS3 titles". However, for those expecting this update to fix their GTA IV problems will be disappointed. Over at the PlayStation Blog, Al de Leon says, "this upcoming firmware update isn’t related to GTA IV." But fear not, de Leon also states: "For those of you who may still have an issue playing the game [GTA IV] on your PS3, we have identified a solution that should resolve the issue."
Other than improved game stability, no other changes are present in this firmware update. Look out for another firmware update in coming weeks to address the GTA IV freezing problems.
