Anyone know about what has changed with this update? The only thing the playstation website says is "This system software update improves system performance." Not very forthcoming about any changes. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the announced shut downs of online games?

Not sure of the details but it seems it's doing something to combat people with hacked/modded systems. People are reporting games like Modern Warfare 2 are hacker-free for the first time in years!

So they clear out the hackers/modders just in time for the online service shutdown. Hilarious. Thanks for the response.

Movies seem to have been removed from the store. That's the first thing I noticed.

I also not sure what the new firmware patch did but one thing that I can say is that still you can play the game ModNation Racers offline

Only reason that I mention this is because by a funny/twisted coincidence this new patch came out the same day when Sony shutdown the servers of the game and since the game had a stupid misleading warning saying that after October 10th the game will become obsolete/unplayable, well luckily the new PS3 patch didn't do anything to the game (because the only way as far I know for make a console refuse to play a software is by a firmware patch, which actually Sony did it before with the removal of Linux support)

I am sure it was mostly a security fix to stop hackers.

I heard it was also to update some sort of blu-ray AACS key. Supposedly newer blu-ray movies won't work without a update to said AACS keys no matter if it is a PS3 or standard blu-ray players.

I never heard of this myself but here is the reddit page. Is this even true?
