PSX Gets Patched

Sony has announced it will release two patches for the PSX. The PS2 compatible DVD-HDD recorder was released in a rush last December to meet the holiday shopping season, which caused Sony to omit a number of originally planned functions.

Sony will release another firmware patch in March which will bring back the remainder of the PSX's originally planned functions. Additional patches may be released in the future, if required. The February and March patches will include the following updates:

February Patch:

HDD to DVD dubbing to be upgraded from 12x speed to 24x speed

MP3 file format support

TIFF file format support

Flashing playback support for recorded video (ability to fast forward or rewind by increments of 15 seconds)

Ability to Sort recorded video files by types, such as title or genre

Ability to edit video titles by using a USB Keyboard

Fixed a bug where some connected peripherals stopped the machine from dubbing

Fixed a bug where the channel specified for automatic time synchronization would return to default when selecting automatic channel settings

March Patch:

DVD+RW recording and playback support

GIF file format support

Sony Cybershot movie file format support

PlayStation BB support
