PS3 owner receives firmware update notification while PSN is down

Forums - Sony Discussion - PS3 owner receives firmware update notification while PSN is down

yeah, this has nothing to do with PSN, because i have the latest firmware and the ps3 hasn't told me to update at all, yet.



Xbox One, PS4 and Switch (+ Many Retro Consoles)

Games do hold updates with in the disc....so this means nothing, I want to see "SIGNED IN", then I'll be happy!

Maybe true. Wouldn't be surprised if there is an update when PSN returns.

I recently bought RDR and the game updated automatically. I was like WTF?? Then I thought maybe the update was in the disk itself but separate from the game, which would be pretty stupid, but I couldn't find any other explanation.

Now I see it may have really been an online update.

 

Game Update servers are still up .

 

And so are the store servers , you can still download thing if they were in your download manangment on the xmb.

If I'm not mistaken, RDR has the firmware required to play the game on the disc itself which is a required install before you can even load the game up. 

Game updates however, are available for various games and they will install if the console has a network connection. I've had several games install updates since the PSN servers went down.

I hadn't tried downloading any of my purchases via DL management though. It's interesting if those are actually accessible while the PSN Store and network is offline. Presumably they're on the same servers as all the game updates/patches.

Since PSN has been down I've updated my versions of God of War III and Portal 2. I don't really see what's so amazing here.



I havent turned on the PS3 in weeks, I am not going to bother until it is all the way up anyways. Off to the PC and 360.
