PS3 Firmware Update 1.90 Released (UPDATED)

Update: Sony has officially confirmed this update, and says it will be available "in a few days" in the U.S. Yay!

The firmware updates just keep coming, and the most recent is apparently already available in Japan, so says Kotaku.

This latest update includes a horde of goodies; some of them are kinda trivial while others are probably greatly appreciated by PS3 owners. The full list of enhancements, additions, and updates is below:

  • Ability to rearrange games on the XMB
  • Option menu now includes "eject disk"
  • Press triangle to eject games/CDs/movies in the XMB
  • XMB backgrounds
  • Change the folder classification
  • Emoticons
  • Change CD output to 44.1/88.2/176.4kHz
  • Force 24Hz output for Blu-ray over HDMI
  • Change PS3 video settings in-game
  • "Bit Mapping" in the "Music Setting"
  • Save AVCHD type animations from a Memory Stick
  • Change settings like upscaling while playing PS and PS2 games
  • Add bookmarks
  • Web browser security function in the browser's tool section
  • Avatar moves during audio visual chat

As you can see, there are a couple of new ways to eject a disc from the machine (other than actually standing up and hitting the button), and the great option to change PS3 video settings in-game. It's a sweet-looking update, so let's hope other regions receive it shortly.
