Sony just made available for download the new firmware for its veteran PS3 console. The new update is numbered 4.70.

As many probably expected, the patch brings only minor changes, even if there are a couple bits and bobs changed. What’s most interesting is a new PlayStation Network icon (you can see it at the bottom of the post), that seems to be more in line with Sony Computer Entertainment’s current branding and colors.

Here are the officially listed changes:

Closed Captions are now supported for the Playback of Blu-Ray Disc titles and DVDs. To display closed captions, select [Settings] > [Video Settings] > [Closed Captions].

The style used for for closed captions, such as the font, size and color, can now be adjusted. Select [Settings] > [Video Settings] > [Closed Captions Settings].

The name and icon of [PSN™] were changed to [PlayStation™ Network].

Old:

icon_text_psn

New:

icon_text_psn

You can update your PS3 by going to Settings -> System Update. Below you can see the new PSN icon. It’ll be interesting to see of it’ll be adopted across the board by Sony.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
