What is PUP file?
PUP files are update files for the PlayStation 3 system. It is a file extension for a zip containing an archive of multiple files and folders. The main purpose of these updates is to patch the system and fix errors that resulted from software or hardware changes. PUP file extension was introduced by Sony to patch and update their PlayStation 3 (PS3) system in 2005 and still commonly used in 2018. This is because it allows them to offer patches in a convenient manner that doesn't require users to spend time on updating each individual game, which would be excessively time-consuming. Although PUP is not supported by Microsoft Windows operating systems, some advanced users utilize this file extension on PCs by opening it with WinRAR application.
