Sony has announced that a new system software update will be arriving ont he PlayStation 3 tomorrow, June 26th. Software update v4.20 for the PS3 will include a few minor updates in order to "strengthen functionality and improve your overall experience," Sony said.

The big adjustment seems to be with the Sony Wireless Headset which as of update 4.10 added a feature that enabled you to hear your own voice through it when playing multiplayer modes - known mostly as "sidetone".

According to Sony, PS3 system software update v4.20 will improve sidetone audio performance by giving you the option to selection one out of five levels for microphone audio. You will also be given the option to turn off the feature completely. For those who use the Wireless Stereo Headset to watch Blu-ray or DVD movies on your PS3, this system software update will also enable virtual surround sound functionality.

Other features in the update include the ability to set the amount of time that the system will wait before turning itself off automatically for [Video/TV/Music/Photo] and for [Game/Other Features]. Saved data management has also been improved; you will now be able to select multiple saved data items and delete or copy them as a group.

Sony has said more details will be available tomorrow once the system software update is live tomorrow. As usual, PS3 owners seem to be displeased with update 4.20.
