.pup File Extension

Developer: Sony
File type: PlayStation 3 Update File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .pup. Files with the file extension .pup can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .pup files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .pup file?

Updating the PlayStation 3 (PS3) system software may require files or patches. These files or patches used for PlayStation 3 Update are the PUP files developed by Sony. These files are compressed files that include the bug fixes, the extra operating system features, and the security patches and they mainly use the name PS3UPDAT.PUP. Updating the PS3 requires users to select "System Update” from the settings menu. The updated files can now be downloaded either from the internet or a connected storage media like a hard disk or Memory Stick. For the extraction of PUP file contents in Windows, users may require the PS3 PUP Extractor program. This program not only extracts PUP files but is also used for the creation of log files containing useful data like calculated SHA1 and Sony hashes. It is required that when PUP files are transferred to the PS3, they should be saved in the folder named /PS3/UPDATE.

how to open a .pup file?

Launch a .pup file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .pup file will open it.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .pup files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .pup. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
