    I remember reading somewhere that Sony has to keep updating the decryption keys for Blu-ray playback, maybe that's what these updates are?

    I guess the system is technically still alive as people still could login for multiplayer games? (mass effect 3 anyone?)

    Sony already did the PlayStation 1, in form of the PlayStation Classic. The biggest dumpster fire of 2018.

    I got a prompt for this 2 days ago and was a little worried because I didn't find any info about a new update.
    Are there ways to get back online from this?

    Okay so it seems to be about some EU credit card thing then? Well apparently this 4.85 update did precisely nothing except change the version number for some reason, so maybe Sony implemented that EU credit card thing on their backend.

    Yeah, it’s all about this EU-Payments-Stuff ... Nothing important, but we have to wait for updated CFW

    So Sony releases 4.85 - an update that does absolutely nothing - and Apple's beta testing iOS 13.1 even though 13.0 isn't even out yet. What other crazy software crap is happening?

    LOL! If you don't have the EC Ending downloaded and installed, you're fucked once people stop playing or the plug is pulled in that game's original trainwreck of an ending!

    If they improve the system performance any further I won't need to buy a PS5 with the PS3s new acquired power.

    Kind of expected this after all the other "legacy" systems that received updates within the last two weeks.
    ...but, I need a new PS3 - my old rebugged back-compat phat has succumbed to YLoD.
