Playstation 3 Update: Blu-ray Enhanced

Recommended Posts

PlayStation 3 Update Includes Blu-ray Enhancement

 

The latest PSP firmware update enhanced the music functionality of the portable device, and an upcoming PlayStation 3 firmware update plans to do the same for movies.

 

Scheduled for later this month, the update will include Blu-ray Disc Profile 2.0, which enables the hi-def format to take advantage of extra downloadable videos, ringtones, and games.

 

The update will also allow photo and music playlists from the PlayStation 3 to be copied onto the PlayStation Portable, along with other new features that include resuming Blu-ray disc play even if the disc was removed, PSP remote play interfacing with music, an enhanced internet browser, noise reduction, and a bump in the accepted size for DivX and WMV formats.

 

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will help the new firmware update with the release of Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and The 6th Day, both with extra downloadable content. No word on pricing for the extra content, but ideally "free" is always a nice answer.
