North America Firmware 1.5 is out |

The main problem that was fixed is the graphical problems when playing PS1 and PS2 games on your PLAYSTATION 3. I tested Final Fantasy 7 when I first got my system and it seemed fine to me. But I haven’t put any PS1/PS2 games into my PS3 since, I’ve been having fun playing ridge racer & fall of man. And playing around with Yellow Dog Linux. But I’m glad to hear they fixed that issue.

Some other issues fixed are:

* User can now set an image/photo (off a mem stick etc) for their user id
* Edy support added (for payment via card reader)
* ‘operation sound’ added to sound settings
* ‘delete backup data’ added to backup utilities subsetting
* WEP128, WPA-PSK (TKIP), WPA-PSK(AES) can now utilize AOSS
* Can now remember your login password without using automatic login
* Korean keyboard setting can be used

*Update* US 1.50 firmware update fixes display annoyances


  1. I’m glad to see the PS2 graphical problems have been solved. That’s been a major issue for lots of people, and now *poof* it’s gone!

  2. I want to set my own image for my PlayStation ID. Hopefully you’ll be able to when the march update is out.
