It’s always nice to be given the option, but, truth be told, we’re not entirely sure why the recent PlayStation 3 firmware update (3.15) wasn’t obligatory.

Incoming! Firmware 3.15 “very soon”; brings Minis plus data transfer

It seems like only yesterday when we were updating to firmware 3.10 (well, for some of us, it actually was) but it looks like Sony have more *ahem* wares for us with James Thorpe popping up on the official EU blog with news of a 3.15 system update.

First things first: it’s optional.

Second things second: it adds the following to your PS3.

So the latest PlayStation 3 firmware launched today entitled 3.10 and so we thought we would tell you what we think.

The biggest new addition in this firmware is Facebook integration. We’ll be honest straight away and say that it isn’t that much of a major deal.
