PS3 Firmware 3.41, PSP 6.31 Release Imminent

Update: PS3 firmware 3.41 is now live, available via Network Update or direct download.

Sony aims to enhance your PlayStation Store browsing experience with the next PS3 firmware update, which is reportedly due out “soon.” PSN director Eric Lempel tells us that firmware 3.41 will add an all-new “You May Like” widget to the storefront, highlighting recommendations tailored towards the item you are currently viewing.

The underlying methodology behind this feature is based on prior purchases of other PSN members.

While firmware 3.41 itself will likely pop up later tonight or tomorrow, this feature is scheduled to go live at July’s end. In addition, the release of PS3 firmware 3.41 will coincide with the arrival of a minor PSP firmware update. Version 6.31 merely promises “system software stability” improvements — hardly exciting, we’d say.

We’ll let you know once the firmware duo hits Network Update.
