Japanese PS3’s Get Firmware 1.5 |

The PlayStation Store will have some more payment options. Currently you can only pay via credit card. Now the PS3 will accept the “Edy” system pre-paid electronic money. You’ll need a IC Reader/Writer connected to your PS3. Sony is also updating the PlayStation 2 backwards backwards compatibility. You’ll also be able to use your own photo as your system user icon. There is no word of a North America release yet.

PS3 firmware version 1.5 (almost) ready for download

  • My own icon! Finally!

  • I’ve been waiting for that as well 😀

  • Then Europe will get 2.0 with lots of features 😀

    I swear to you!

    (I am happy, my Notebook came back from warranty today… HD crash. They also changed the dvd drive, which was perfectly in order… dunno why)

  • they usually have the x.0 update coincide with some major event. So europe launch will be probably when we see 2.0. PSP’s 3.0 update roughly coincided with the PS3 launch.
