The following things are needed to perform the update:

  • USB storage device, such as a USB flash drive
    * There must be 400 MB of free space.
    • On the USB storage device, create folders for saving the update file.

      PC Update
    • Download the update file, and save it in the "UPDATE" folder you created in step 1.
      Save the file with the file name "PS4UPDATE.PUP".
      Download NowClick to start the download.
    • Turn off the power of your PS4™ system completely.
      Check that the power indicator is not lit. If the power indicator is lit up in orange, touch the power button on the PS4™ system for at least 7 seconds (until the system beeps a second time).

Slow firmware downloads? Download the firmware on your PC and toss it on a USB stick. Pay attention to the directory structure.

Great tip! Updates on the PS3 are one of the biggest complaints I have whenever I fire up the console. This helps lessen the frustration.

I've never experienced a slow firmware download, but this is definitely a great tip for anyone that wants to do it via a big pipe (your mom likes big pipes...) at the office.

That's one of the nice features with PSN+ -- Auto-updates for firmware and game patches while you sleep.

Besides the free games, that is the next best feature for me. Don't have to wait 30 minutes ofr an update while your friends are playing a game already.

4.50 incoming. Available to DL and put on a usb stick if you want here. (when available)

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/10/01/ps3-firmware-450-new-features-releasing-soon

Sony's next firmware update for PlayStation 3 will become available sometime today. Firmware 4.50 adds a handful of features to the console, including easier data transfers between PS3 and Vita. Here's the official breakdown of "some of the new enhancements" in 4.50:

  • Auto download of system software updates has been expanded to support all PSN users.
  •  
  • Auto download support of purchases made on the Web Store will be made available to all PSN users.
  •  
  • New options for trophy privacy settings allow users to set which trophies are visible.
  •  
  • Data can now be transferred from PS3 to PS Vita using wi-fi and ethernet connection.

 

Trophy privacy settings? Now you can hide your shameful Platinums from the world while still retaining their illustrious, ego-stroking existence. And, hey, now we don't need PlayStation Plus for the auto-download stuff. Hallelujah.

Never tried it with the ps3?

When it prompts for the update you just tell it to use usb instead of internet.

The usb has to be structured like in the instructions

No I never tried the update with a USB before with my PS3 either. Just let it download through the PS3. Always took forever!

PS4 1.62 is live. I haven't seen a changelog but I think it's just stability.
