Sony is to update the PlayStation 3 system software today, rolling out a firmware tweak that allows PSOne, PS2 and DVD movies to be upscaled by the console to full 1080p HD resolution via HDMI. Well, if you've got the right kind of telly, of course...

PS3 Firmware 1.80 also rolls out internet-spanning remote control using a PlayStation Portable.

DLNA devices are certified by the Digital Living Network Alliance, an industry body that promotes connectivity between devices in the home.
