Sony has released a system software update for the PS3 with PS3 Firmware 4.78.

PS3 Official Firmware 4.78 Update



One would expect this to be another useless update, but you’d be wrong, because this is just another useless update and more. Because in this update, Sony has removed the Facebook app on the PS3 system rendering it useless (as if it wasn’t already unusable)


Here’s what’s included in the PS3 firmware 4.78 Update:

  • Support for Facebook features on the system has been discontinued.

  • Luckily, this update is not mandatory, meaning, you can still access PSN and continue on with your online shenanigans without the need to update your system. You won’t be able to use the PS3 Facebook App anymore though.

    You can download and update your PS3 system directly via WiFi or you can download the update to your PC here.
