    Sony has updated the PS3’s firmware taking it to version 2.17. Unfortunately there are very few improvements with this update – under the main features in this version Sony lists only “The operating stability of some PLAYSTATION 3 format software has been improved.” The simplest way to update the firmware is via the PS3's system menu.

    Two other issues that were fixed...

    about 10 security holes has been patched, also games that required a HDD on the ps2 now works on the ps3.
