Most of the times, a PS3 system update is a cause for groans, notable only for the fact it interrupts your next gaming session. But this next one's not so bad!

Here are the highlights:

  • Auto download of system software updates has been expanded to support all PSN users.
  • Auto download support of purchases made on the Sony Entertainment Network online store will be made available to all PSN users.
  • New options for trophy privacy settings allow users to set which trophies are visible.
  • Data can now be transferred from PS3 to PS Vita using Wi-Fi or an Ethernet connection.

Auto-downloads? Hiding trophies? Easy data transfer? This is all good stuff, all of it.

The update should be rolling out throughout the night.
