PS3 Firmware 2.20 brings BD-Live Interactive Blu-ray this month!

500°
348w ago - According to the bods over at Engadget, the Blu-ray 2.0 spec (or BD-Live) is just days from launch. Sony just announced that the next PlayStation 3 Firmware updated -- v2.20 -- will add the new interactive features to your PS3.

As such, PS3 owners should expect downloadable video content, ringtones, interactive movie-based games, and the always intriguing "more" when the software is released in "late March." In other words, in the next 11 days. The update will also allow you to copy photos and music playlists over USB from your PS3 to your PSP. The rest of the new features after the break.

-- "Resume play" will enable PS3 system to start playing a Blu-ray disc
and DVD at the point it was stopped, even if the disc had been
removed.(*1)
-- "Audio Output Device" will be a new Remote Play setting, enabling PSP
to serve as a remote control for music played through PS3.
-- PS3 system's Internet browser will be enhanced: Video files directly
linked from a Web page will be able to be streamed, and the browser's
view speed will be improved.
-- DivX and WMV format videos that are larger than 2GB will be playable.
-- "Mosquito Noise Reduction" will be added as an AV setting in the
control panel of the DVD/BD player for improved movie playback.(*2)

349w ago - Update: According to zefie (and the PSP Updater), there is now a second/alternate 3.93 Firmware revision available HERE which appears to be either a quick fix or a new update format, size, and CRC ?

PSP Firmware 3.93 is now available for download via Network Update. As expected, the update is relatively minor, offering enhanced support for PlayStation Network titles as detailed in the Firmware changelog:

- Support for PLAYSTATION Network titles has been expanded.

Download: PSP Firmware 3.93 (US) / PSP Firmware 3.93 (EU)

Not mentioned in the official changelog, it appears there are 20 new Internet radio players that have been added to the PSP's Internet Radio feature.

Thanks to John Koller over at SCEA for pointing this out at the PlayStation Blog!

PS3 Firmware Update 2.17 released!

750°
349w ago - Update: Per Jeff Rubenstein (Social Media Manager, PlayStation Blog): In case you were wondering what it's all about, the operating stability of some online PS3 titles has been improved. Hope that clears things up!

It's now official- Sony has indeed skipped a retail release of PS3 Firmware 2.15 (Debug) in lieu of PS3 Firmware Update 2.17 which is out now via Network Update or below!

Download: PS3 FW Update 2.17 (US) / PS3 FW Update 2.17 (EU)

There isn't an official changelog available yet, but it appears to be primarily a bugfix update at this time.

Also, for what it's worth a little birdie told us Sony Devs already have 2.20 so perhaps another quick update will follow soon? :P
