News: PS3 Firmware 4.20-- Is it worth upgrading to ?
Sony's PS3 is one of those gaming consoles which frequently releases update for their PS3 but most of the time it is nothing much dramatic and often patches cracks and hacks. So what do we have in this new PS3 firmware?
If you are one of those having issues with sound and music, it sure is a good news for you.The major change for the firmware is that the "Sidetone" feature has been added and improved for those who use the Wireless Stereo Headset you will now be able to select five levels of microphone audio and also disable Sidetone completely. Virtual sound enhancement has also been added for music lovers.
Leaving audio improvements, now you will be able to set different idle power off time while using media or playing your PS3 game.
If non of these thing interests you, I can warn you all guys not to upgrade your PS3's firmware if you want homebrew and Custom Firmware(CFW) for your PS3 as if may come out any time now. If you update your firmware(FW), you may be stuck in this same firmware like people who upgraded from 3.55 FW did. If you are a jailbreak guy, have some patience and wait. Enjoy and stay updated.
P.S. : Downgrading is a very hard process and very risky.
