PlayStation 3 Firmware 2.20 Features: Blu-ray 2.0, more

  If you booted up your PlayStation 3 earlier today, you may have noticed a new update available for you to download. Firmware update 2.20 is one we've been expecting for a while now, as Sony has stated that the PS3's next firmware update would include Blu-ray 2.0 support. For those curious what Blu-ray Profile 2.0 is, it allows you to access the internet while you're playing a Blu-ray Live enabled disc.

   BD-Live discs feature additional content that you can access via internet. "The 6th Day" and "Walk Hard" will be two of the first Blu-ray Live releases of the year. And to further prove that the PlayStation 3 is the best deal in multimedia toys, it is actually the very first Blu-ray Live compatible player on the market now.

   Other updates include the ability to copy/export Music and Photo playlists from your PlayStation 3 to your PSP. In addition, you can now view DivX and WMV files that are larger than 2GB - a quirk many have been complaining about for quite some time. And for the DivX viewers, you can also enable your subtitles, as well.

   A Resume Play feature has been added, which will allow you to start playing your DVD or Blu-ray from the very moment you stopped it at, even if you removed the disc and watched another movie, turned off the system, or played another game! Very cool. A Save Target (save file) option has been added to the internet browser, as well as enhanced surfing speeds.

   And PSP connectivity has been enhanced to allow you to play music off of your PlayStation 3 without having to turn on your TV. Quite the update, we must say.

I guess the PSP needs an update to take advantage of the PSP remote player.

If you think microsoft will treat you any better than the brilliant guys at sony, you are kidding yourself.
The PS3 is a brilliant console and the guys at Sony work hard to bring us consumers a good experience.
Now maybe they don't cater for your specific wants, but maybe you are not the only person in the world.
I for one like my PS3 and all the things it can do. And as for the 360, only a fanboy would think that microsoft's attempt at a console will give any more than the PS3.
As for your language, you sound like are one of the no life 10 year olds you dislike so much.

@Rusha
Its up to the devs to release maps for Call of Duty 4 and the same goes for 360.
Real player sucks, who uses that on their PC's?
Whether the game runs in 720p or 1080p its still the same graphics its just that its sharper in 1080p when you play it on a bigger TV. How many 360 games run in native 1080p? Halo 3 wasn't even in HD just upscaled. There are games on PS3 that look better than Assassin's Creed and CoD4 namely Uncharted or ratchet. Your coments about tweaked PS2 games is ridiculous. 360 games do not look better and you can see GT comparisons to see that there are no difference in graphical quality only that one can be darker or lighter than the other which can be configured on the TV.
I find it hard to believe that you have any friends. Lets face it, your just a weirdo.
