Don't worry. It's optional.

Sony will release PlayStation 3 system software update version 4.11 “later tonight,” it’s announced. An optional update – meaning, you won’t need to download it to connect to PlayStation Network – it “improves certain aspects of system software.”

To download the update, select the System Update icon from the Settings column in the XMB.

Thanks, PlayStation Blog.

    @the first poster: What U3 loading error?

    Anyway, for being an optional update I sure felt forced to download it last night.
    Lemme ‘splain.

    I finally got my dream PS3 last night, a white FF-13 PS3 Slim with Lightning Silkscreened on top in pink…a true thing of beauty. Anywho, I go to recover my PSN account on it and when I click “Sign Up” it says….”there is a PS FW update 4.11. Go to System Update to update your system”.

    It would not let me recover my account without updating first.

    Just wanted to put that out there.

      @Malcolm Reynolds: Probably because your firmware before you updated was below 4.10, which is a mandatory update.
