To update your PS3 you will either need an internet connection to your PS3 or access to a computer with internet and a USB memory stick.
When prompted select install from memory stick and follow the instructions to install the update.
No, but there are system updates which apparently crash your PS3.
The console will emit two power-up tones after 10-15 seconds, at which point owners can release the two buttons and wait for the system to automatically restart, completing the update process.
Microsoft says the button combination forces the console to search for a USB drive update, which isn't the default chain of operations when the Xbox One normally boots up.
Some possible solutions include disabling the media server on the PS3, configuring static DNS addresses on both your router and your PS3, updating your router firmware, or moving your PS3 to the DMZ.
Then plug in the stick into your PS3 and select system update from the XMB.Those looking to update their systems offline will need a USB stick with at least two gigabytes of space on it, and will need to format it as NTFS on their computers.
