Sony’s PlayStation 3 console is a beloved system that brought us some of the best titles that gamers are still enjoying to this very day.

Sony launched the PlayStation 3 in 2006 and it competed with the likes of the Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii, showcasing the mammoth competition that each system had to contend with during the seventh console generation.

The PS3 graced us with classic titles such as The Last of Us, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Demon's Souls, LittleBigPlanet, the original Uncharted trilogy and much more. Speaking of which, when are we going to get a new Uncharted game? Anyway, since its launch in 2006, the PS3 would see two console revisions each smaller in size than the last, before it was discontinued in 2017 with its reign lasting over a decade.

So you’d think that as the PlayStation 3 was killed off seven years ago (it feels like it should be longer than that), there would be no further system updates deployed by Sony? Well, if like the vast majority of us, you thought that, you’d be wrong.

Before we continue, it’s important not to get carried away with this PlayStation 3 system update, because it does nothing special. System software 4.91 should download the next time you boot up your PlayStation 3 with an internet connection.

That being said, I believe the fact that the PlayStation 3 is still receiving some love and care to this day, is something special in its own right. So what exactly does the system software 4.91 bring to the table? This update that ways in at 200MB improves system stability. See, I told you not to get excited.

If you want to play the classic PS3, they can still be found being sold by third-party sellers and at this moment, they can be acquired for around £70 and upwards, which isn't too much of a bad price if you ask me.
