Selling PS3. Need to update software??

I came across my old PS3 in the garage today and because I haven’t played it since about 2012 I’ve decided I’m going to sell it.

In terms of its ‘desirability’ for a potential buyer should I update the software to the most recent version or leave it as it is @ version 4.76?

Or won’t it make the slightest bit of difference?

I suppose you'd save them a job and prove it still works.

Just double-checked and version 4.76 is only 5 yrs old (thought I hadn’t updated for 8yrs+!) with no real desirable traits for my 60GB fat version

Might as well update to the latest version to at least save the new owner a job

Thanks for the advice
