PS3: Firmware update v2.20 in April

Playstation 3 will be the first Blu-ray player with Profile 2.0 when the firmware is updated in April. Probably on or before April 6 when Sony release its two first BD-Live titles: The 6th Day and Walk Hard.

Here is the new features in firmware v2.20 (taken from PlayStation.Blog):

  • 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.
