Sony talks up PS3 update

A must for organised photo fans

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Updated Just 24 hours after announcing the impending launch of firmware version 5.03 for the PlayStation Portable, Sony has released a sneak preview of another firmware update for the PS3.

Sony staffer Eric Lempel said, again in a post on the official PlayStation blog, that the PS3’s update – to be called version 2.60 – is primarily designed to enhance the console’s multimedia capabilities.

Aside from adding support for DivX 3.11 videos, the update’s main feature is the creation of an application called Photo Gallery.

Although the app’s name tells you pretty much everything you need to know, Lempel stated that it provides gamers with a great way to store, sort and display images. Sort is the most unique feature though, because you’ll be able to organise images according to smiles, landscapes, ages and even the make of camera used to snap a picture.

Sony’s also created a guest access pass for the PlayStation Store, which allows anyone who’s not signed up to the store to browse its virtual isles. But if you do then want to buy something, you’ll have to formally sign up.

Lempel didn’t say when firmware 2.60 will be available to download, but he has loaded a video of himself running through the update’s Photo Gallery app onto the PlayStation blog. ®
