The PS3 gets 0.01 newer
Another system update hits the PlayStation 3, bringing it from version 1.10 to 1.11 (thanks Niti Kumar). The update has yet to be posted on the PlayStation Web site, but should be available as soon as users log into their consoles.
As far as we can tell, the only noticeable additions is the new “Account Management” feature, which allows money to be added into the virtual wallet system without going into the PlayStation Store. This feature may be of some use to parents who wish to load their children’s shiny new console with a set allowance.
For those who haven't updated yet since pulling Sony's behemoth out of the box, today's update coupled with the original v1.10 update add the following features:

As a result, the free space value displayed may be less than the value that is mentioned under specifications in the product documentation.

Not to slam Sony.......

But what the hell, they deserve it. Now if Microsoft and Sony both had identicle units with identicle problems, this is where Microsoft shines. Microsoft knows how to patch, mainly due to the fact that they have to patch every version of windows practically weekly but hey :P. Now Sony can feel the pain of having to patch an operating system that is flawed. That 1 year head start on the Xbox also gave Microsoft plenty of time to iron out OS glitches before the PS3 launched. Sony........ F T L
