Sony Computer Entertainment is not hanging around with the PS3 updates. From day one, anyone connecting their shiny new PlayStation 3 to the Internet will be invited to download a system software update to version 1.10. The update will unlock all services on PlayStation Network for customers to get stuck into from 7am (JST) on November 11.
Another update is planned for late November, and will include a version update for PSP, with enhanced security features and improvements in the way the PSP can connect with the PS3. This will also include the ability to download PSP-specific games from PlayStation Store on the PS3, and transfer them to the PSP. It will also unlock the "remote play" feature that allows users to control the PS3 via their PSP remotely. This does not work with PS3s that are not fitted with the Wireless LAN adaptor, however. The update will bring the PSP system software version number up to 3.00.
