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.
