PS3 Firmware Update 1.51 Available
So we turned on the PS3 this evening and were once again prompted to perform another system update. This one is Version 1.51, and while the previous update was a big one (it fixed how PS2 games appear on a HDTV when played through the PS3), we're not entirely sure what this one does... And after perusing the Internet for any info, we can only tell you one thing, and that's what Sony says on their website:
"Support for PLAYSTATION 3 format software titles has been expanded."
Ah. Well, we couldn't ascertain what that "expansion" did to our system, and nobody else really seems to know, either. We hope to get a more detailed answer from Sony some time early next week, but until then, just go ahead and download the mystery update. Can't hurt ya. At least, it probably can't.
