Do you have to update your PS3?


Are PS3 software updates compulsory or does it say something like “A new update is available, would you like to download it now? Yes/No”? Or can you not get around it?

  1. If you want to go on PSN you have to update. If you want to play new games you will have to update in time, as the new games will REQUIRE you to update to play if your firmware is too old.

  2. They are not compulsory or forced. However, sometimes you have to update if you want to log into PSn , which is basically the company’s way of trying to force you to. You cannot get around no psn access unless you use custom firmware, but that’s not really possible anymore.
