Can they change such stuff with firmware updates?

The max of 4GB per file is old man.

Unfortunately, no. 4GB is a limitation of the file system itself. AFAIK, there's no hack available to make the PS3 read external NTFS drives.

Maybe someone will come up with a solution, but I don't know any.

There is, in the form of Multiman (CFW only). You can find more info on the PS3 ISO website.

I believe NTFS is a format style patented by Microsoft. So, if Sony wanted to use it, I suspect they would have to license its use.

I know you can split big files and join them again when transferring to the internal HD.

Or do you mean accessing files larger than 4GB from the external?
