Firmware 2.17 Now Available For PS3

hahaha i remember that was a complaint by some people. Apparently sony was updating too much they didn't like it. I wonder when sony will be announcing xmb features

Updating too much leads to more bricked consoles and that meant more money sony had to spend fixing them.

just fixes to run the ps3 smoother, nothing serious i guess but i guess this will help ps3 later on with bigger firmwares cause of the lack of ram
