December 4, 2013 Written by Jason Dunning


The PlayStation 4 may be out, but Sony won’t be stopping with the PlayStation 3 system software updates as the optional 4.53 is now available to download for everyone.

SuperFastZombie, Online Support Co-ordinator for the EN PlayStation Community, tweeted about how 4.53 (US Download Link, UK Download Link) “improves system stability,” but the official PlayStation website has posted a few more notes for the update (some is just a repeat of 4.50):

 Main Features

  • You can now set the group of players who can see your trophies. You can also specify for each game whether to show trophies.
