PS3 Firmware 4.01 Released in Debug Form

With PS3 firmware 4.00 being the latest software version for the PlayStation 3 despite its release roughly two months ago, knowing Sony, it is about time to release another firmware update for the PlayStation 3. While cruising on PlayStation’s official press website, I noticed something very interesting immediately after signing into the site. The latest package uploaded to the official PlayStation Press Center is labeled “PS3 Debug Firmware 4.01″ as you see in the screen cap above (click for full resolution).

Unfortunately, I do not own a Debug PS3 Unit, so I am not able to test it out and see what all PS3 firmware 4.01 entails, but what I do know is that the update weighs in at 166mb. Keeping in mind that this is just a minor jump, 4.01 is likely a very minor update to fix known bugs or make minor tweaks, but once the details come out announcing the 4.01 firmware update for PS3, it should be interesting to see what all the update entails.

Could this be related to the extensive PlayStation Network maintenance last week? Is Sony preparing the PS3 for additional features in addition to 4.00 to work with their upcoming PlayStation Vita device? Until we know for sure, be sure to check out Nick’s Gaming View Episode #62 here for news on Kratos’ appearance on PlayStation Vita along with my impressions of the Vita at CES 2012 vs. E3 2011!

Obviously it won’t be cross game chat, but I do hope it will have some kind of new feature.
