- The big new features of the latest PS3 firmware DivX and WMV playback, but let us spare a thought for some of the lesser features that sneaked into the latest update. There is a new planet music visualizer, they fixed the video thumbnails in folders not playing and lastly BD/DVD dynamic range control has been tweaked.
And who could forget that the PS3 is now well equipped for the 1.1 profile movies that will hit early next year.
To quote: As well as providing DivX and WMV playback in the latest firmware as we revealed yesterday (which is now out, by the way) Sony have added a couple of really cool new features that aren't documented in the changelist.
Firstly, they've added a new 'planet' music visualiser from our friends at Q Games (press 'square' when playing music) which has got to be the most amazing thing we've ever seen. They've also fixed the video thumbnails in folders not playing, and finally BD/DVD Dynamic Range Control has been tweaked for those late night sessions. With the recent changes the PS3 is now the ultimate Blu-ray player, and the first 1.1 Profile movies come out on the 1st of January.
