PlayStation 1.7 firmware released

For all of the PlayStation 3 owners out on the web, Sony has just released the newest firmware update for their console, version 1.70. While the update has not been officially released on Sony's official website, we can tell you some important updates include:

- PSOne downloaded games are now playable on the PS3

- Saves from the PS3 can now be used on the PSP (I.E PSOne saves)

- Vibration support has been added to emulated PS1 and PS2 titles.
( All older titles now support vibration when you put the disc in your PlayStation 3)

From the looks of it, this update is huge. Stay tuned to PSU as we try to get some more information on this exciting bit of late breaking news.

Update:

It appears that you will still need a PSP to download PSOne titles at the moment. Hopefully Sony will fix this hiccup soon. ( You must have your PSP connected through USB mode to download titles still)

The story is too old to be commented.

"So let me get this straight.

I download a PS1 title. Throw it on my PSP. Play it.

Then I get home. Upload the new save data to my PS3.

Now I can play the game right where I left off from my PSP on the PS3."

I played MGS3 on my PS3 at the weekend. But now it doesn't work since I updated my PS3.

What a load of bullsh#t. Wish I had not updated.

woohoo an update! To bad all there ps1 games that you can download suck. Oh well. Unfortunately I dont own a psp so this firmware is useless to me until they bring out the rumble controller.

Syphon Filter suddenly became that much more appealing.

Though this update is not a major overhaul, the feature is one I gladly welcome.
