As PC World Commented
"The irony is that the latest update for Sony's next-gen console was not considered innovative or new at all, rather it was simply a way for the PS3 to catch up with functionality already available on Microsoft's Xbox 360.
The newest PS3 features delivered by the firmware update included: an update to the XrossMediaBar to allow users to access menu items without having to log out of gameplay, in-game text message support, and a new Google Search button. A new awards system for gamers was also included."
