not sure what is meant by "normal patches" on PS3, i'm guessing you mean option files. However with the PS3 jailbreak we should in theory now be able to patch like the PC and like the PS2 days. Anyway first thing i have found is that for those playing the EUR version on PS3 at the moment, you can now get English language on the menus by downloading this file and dropping in there game directory:
Once done, load up the game, go to setting and select English from the language setting.
Can't take credit for finding this myself but hope it helps someone. Lets hope this is the start of real patching on the PS3.
