Sony is keeping mysteriously quiet about the benefits of its latest PlayStation Portable firmware update.

As usual, Eric Lempel, Director of PlayStation Network Operations, broke news of the impending update – to be called version 5.03 - on the official PlayStation blog.

He said simply that the firmware is “a small update that improves system stability during [the] use of some features”.

Lempel’s statement probably raises more questions about the update than it answers, but it’s probably safe to assume that 5.03 – which follows 5.02, released back in November – will aim to reduce system crashes during gameplay.

An availability date for 5.03 hasn’t been confirmed yet. ®
