PS3 Receives New 4.10 Firmware Update, Browser Gets HTML5 Support
Sony has released firmware 4.10 to all consoles, prompting the update as soon as you boot up the PS3. The same update is also available to PS Vita users bringing it to version 1.60 – the firmware is relatively small and shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to install making some cosmetic, software fixes and improving one experience by far.
The biggest draw from the update is that HTML5 is finally supported for the console browser, increasing website rendering speeds tremendously – Youtube and Twitter are finally usable for once. Testing the browser out, ”HTML5 test kicking out a score of 80 (it had azero before) and ACID3 scoring 99, which is remarkable (the Vita scores 53)”.
The German Playstation site detailed the ‘improved display speed’ as “The Internet browser has been improved, which optimizes the display of content and increases the accuracy when viewing page layouts”
You’ll also find that time is now automatically updated for the system. Before, you would sync the time with the internet though would slowly fall out of the sync – the fix ensures it is up to date always.
You’ll also be accepting terms and conditions to integrate your PSN account within Sony’s Entertainment Network account, though won’t be changing the kind of service PSN has treated us to – the change will bring us to SEN as reported earlier last week.
The update is live to download from your PS3 and PS Vita
