Default Ps3 Fw2.42

Any idea on what 2.42 does? Just technical changes and bug fixes? Nothing about it on the PS blog.

I'm not sure about you, but I've been downloading this thing for quite some time and im still only at 12%. This is, by far, the slowest it's ever gone

Edit: Ah it had trouble connecting to the server in the end. All is well now

Yeah its still having errors connecting. I asked a friend up in canada to try it and he also can't seem to connect.

Sounds like network issues - oh well I'll get the bug fixes later I guess.

Okay, just the usual bugs fixes "This update improves the playback quality of some PLAYSTATION 3 and PlayStation format software."

At E3, we were told that the Playstation life was coming soon (basically check news and weather anywhere), before the end of the month.

Some people think this update lays some groundwork for that. You'll be able to move the time and date to any corner you like as well.

The trophy page is still horribly slow for being such a simple application. Also I got to level 2, and it does absolutely nothing.
