Sony’s popular PlayStation 3 gaming console recently received a software upgrade which was meant to add some new features, enhancements, and fix some issues, such as wireless headset users’ audio problems.
In a blog post, the Japan-based entertainment giant announced that version 4.20 brought “a few minor updates” to boost functionality and enhance users’ overall experience.
When Sony added a “sidetone” feature to the PlayStation 3 to enable users to hear their own voice via the console machine’s wireless stereo headset, many fans complained about poor audio performance. With the latest update, the company has tried to fix that issue by adding the option to choose one of five microphone audio levels, or allowing them turn off the feature completely.
It will also enable virtual sound functionality, ensuring better audio experience for those who use the wireless headset to enjoy movies on the PlayStation 3 consoles.
The version 4.20 update will make users to plug-in only once in a session instead of every single instance as was the case previously.
The update makes it easier for users to copy multiple saved games. Now, PS3 owners can select numerous saved items, and then copy/delete those items as a group. It will be of a great help to gamers when they will try to back up the machine’s hard drive.
