Hardly two weeks have passed since Sony released the PS3’s version 2.0 firmware update. However, the electronics giant has now released version 2.01, focusing this time on fixing instability issues.

The update promises to improve stability issues associated with PS3 software, such as crashing or freezing during gameplay. It also seeks to improve stability when gamers access the internet or information boards, and claims to better the console’s stability when working with PS2 titles.

Those machines that support them, of course - the new 40GB model doesn't.

Sony has also made changes to the option that allows a PSP to remotely start up a PS3 over the internet, which was introduced in firmware 2.0. Some gamers have reported this feature was unreliable.
