Writing on the official PlayStation 3 support forum,
digital platforms community manager ‘Tempest_Fire’ said:

“I’m posting this message to inform you that there will be a minor firmware update (v.4.31) released on the evening of Monday, October 29th.

“There will not be PlayStation Network maintenance during this time; online play and access to apps will not be affected during the release of this update.

“This is not a mandatory update. However, we suggest you keep your systems updated with the latest firmware, as these updates further improve overall system stability and help provide you with the best online entertainment experience possible.”

At time of writing, the update wasn’t available over the US or European PlayStation Network, and there’s no official information on the features and/or fixes of the latest PS3 firmware update.

We’ll let you know when we know.
