Recently released PS3 firmware update 4.40 will enable users to download content purchased from PSN's online store to their consoles beginning this May.
Released on March 21, system software update 4.40 also introduces the following features:
  • The wireless stereo headset (CECHYA-0080 / CECHYA-0086) and the stereo headset (CECHYA-0088) now support PlayStation 2 Classics that have been downloaded from PlayStation Store.
  • System software stability during use of some features has been improved.

Sony launched the PSN web store in Europe in December and in the US in January. It allows users to purchase content which is then added to their PS3 or Vita download lists, although purchases cannot yet be set to automatically download.
