PS3, Xbox 360 both get overnight updates

PS3 4.11 and Xbox 360 update appear

Microsoft and Sony unintentionally posted simultaneous updates for their game systems overnight on Thursday. The Xbox 360 has received its promised fix for a color space issue, where certain apps and video playback would distort the colors. The upgrade is required to keep using Xbox Live and will translate to individual apps.

Sony in turn has updated the PS3 to 4.11. The company is less specific about what it fixes other than that it "improves certain aspects" of the firmware. It isn't an anti-jailbreaking deterrent, however, as it's not required to keep using PSN. The update is so far available only in Canada and the US.
