PS3 Update help please

    Is it true you can update the PS3 by downloading from the computer the newest updates and copy onto a sd card and then use the card to update the PS3 ?
    Please can anyone confirm this -if so is it easy to do ?
    Would you just get onscreen instructions to follow ?


    Yes you can.

    You usually download the file from here:…re/

    The I believe you have to: use your PC to create a folder named 'PS3' on the storage media or USB device. Within the folder, create a folder named 'UPDATE' (This folder name is case sensitive and must appear in all capital letters). Once the UPDATE folder has been created, download the PS3 system software update to this location.

    It should then be recognised on the PS3..

    I haven't tried this however, as I just download it via the update and my internet connection straight onto my PS3
