BD-Live Arriving with Firmware 2.20 Soon

March 20, 2008 | | 12 Comments

Well this doesn’t happen to often. We get details of a firmware update before it arrives, lol. But this is how it should be every time. Usually it’s released late one night and the gaming forums try to figure out the changes all night.

Check out the list below for all the details. It should arrive in the next few days according to Sony.

*BD-Live functionality

* The ability to copy PS3 Music and Photo playlists to a PSP system. We introduced the ability to create Music and Photo playlists on the PS3 in firmware update v2.0. Now you can easily export your playlists to your PSP.

* You can now play DivX and WMV format files that are over 2 GB.

* Resume Play – begin playing a DVD or BD disc from the point where you previously stopped it, even if you eject the disc and insert a different movie or game.

* Use your PSP as a remote control to play back your music files on your PS3 without turning on your TV.

* The Internet browser now displays some web pages faster. In addition [Save Target] has been added as an option under file. This option lets you save a file that is linked to a web page to your PS3 hard drive or storage media.
