Here are some of the other new features/enhancements that will be included in Firmware v2.20:

The ability to copy PS3 Music and Photo playlists to a PSP system. We introduced the ability to create Music and Photo playlists on the PS3 in firmware update v2.0. Now you can easily export your playlists to your PSP.

You can now play DivX and WMV format files that are over 2 GB. In addition, you can now display subtitles when viewing DivX files.

Resume Play - begin playing a DVD or BD disc from the point where you previously stopped it, even if you eject the disc and insert a different movie or game.

Use your PSP as a remote control to play back your music files on your PS3 without turning on your TV

The Internet browser now displays some web pages faster. In addition [Save Target] has been added as an option under file. This option lets you save a file that is linked to a web page to your PS3 hard drive or storage media

There are a few other tweaks and upgrades included in v2.20 - we'll provide more specifics as the update is about to go live.


Most notably, the update enables the PS3 to support Blu-ray Disc Profile 2.0, also known as BD-Live. You can connect now to the Internet while playing discs that support BD-Live to obtain additional content and special features. These features vary from disc to disc, and will keep your BD discs fresh with new content and in some cases exclusive content only accessible to owners of BD-Live enabled discs. On April 8th Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release The 6th Day and Walk Hard on Blu-ray; these titles will be among the first to take advantage of BD-Live. With this update, the PLAYSTATION 3 becomes the first Blu-ray player on the market with BD-Live functionality.

what does this include again? i forgot

sonarus3652d ago

most interested in the enhanced browser. Ps3 browser has a lot of potential. Glad i can now stream even more videos. My dream was to be able to stream divx videos but since stage six is gone:(

sonarus3652d ago

lol at the jealous wretch with 2 accounts disagreeing with everyone. Pointing fingers at mart and pog. Its just a FW update its not that big a deal

Delive3651d ago

Something else in there that is not getting much attention, but I think it's a great addition. Now, when in remote play on the PSP, you can have the output through your PS3's output. For me, this means music I play on the PS3 through the stereo can now be controlled anywhere in the house. Before, all I could do was go to the next or previous track, or go to the TV and see where a song was and change to it. Now I can do this all on the PSP as long as I am in signal range with the PS3.

It's in the Remote play options, at the bottom of the "Settings" menu. Nice addition Sony.

someone on N4G just runs around opens articles and clicks "disagree" all the way down the page for a living.

lol so true...

Kleptic3651d ago

haven't downloaded it yet...but the xmb does seem quicker?...the PS forums had some rumors, that were never debunked, about 2.20 having some significant OS prep for Home and upcoming games that use the EDGE toolset (which allows devs to use more available memory than prior games)...its rumored that the in game OS footprint is around 40megs now...big difference from the 90 at launch...

if that Open Beta for Home is true for mid April, would make sense that this update has a lot more 'behind the scenes' stuff thats not immediately noticable yet...just hope in-game messaging is here with that open beta...and that it really is next month...

TheHater3652d ago

I wasn't expecting this. only .2 more to go, then we have the "big" 2.4 update. :)
