PS3 1.6 Firmware Details Confirmed

The new firmware, which hits the U.S. on Thursday, will come with the coolio [email protected] program, support for Bluetooth mice and keyboards, a new full QWERTY on-screen keyboard, web browsing zoom, the ability to choose whether a disc should start automatically when you insert it into the PS3 and playback of rewriteable Blu-ray Discs.

The story is too old to be commented.

Oh wow, the biggest upgrade for me (aside from background downloading) is that "games auto launching when inserted" option. I hope it also affects launching a game when turning the system on. When you have a device that you use for viewing pictures, listening to music, watching movies, AND playing games, you shouldn't have to sit there during the initial start-up sequence waiting to scroll left or right out of the game menu to prevent it from loading.

*edit: and after actually reading the article, it does.

Yeah, it's already been many a times when upon powering up the system directly via the console's power button, I suddenly realize that I left a game sitting in the machine...at which point I desperately and unsuccessfully lunge for the controller ten feet across the room, nearly shattering my clavicle as my body thuds to the hard floor.

Yes, this will be a welcomed feature indeed!

I was wondering where it said you only play games off the hdd, couldnt find it, but being able to watch a movie is awesome. This little entertainment center is getting some good updates. Yeah that auto startup thing was bugging, really bugged me with the psp also, always ejected the game prior to turning it on. Should be a good option for the ps3.

"Support for Bluetooth mice and keyboards"

Wow, that's the first I've heard of it. Great news if true, as a lot of people have been waiting for this.

I'm I not the only one that has to have music during games? It has been a disapointing march for my ps3, music during gamesd like the 360 makes the games much funner in my opinion.
