PlayStation 3 FW 3.41 was… just a simple patch?

Many people when they saw the change-list for the latest PlayStation 3 firmware were slightly miffed that it did literally nothing for them, however believe this firmware to be a new breed if you will, a firmware patch.

Previously all firmware updates that were released were all full-sized downloads of around 200MB, that included all of the data since the original firmware, much like how iTunes makes you download a full copy again rather than just patch the issues that need fixing.

If you were already on 3.40 before yesterdays update, 3.41 only weighed in a mere 40MB, and if you directly download the patch from Sony and not via the PS3, you’ll see it titled PS3PATCH.PUP, not something we’ve seen before.
