Despite what some rumour mongers would like for you to believe, no, Home is NOT a part of this update.

339w ago - Update: The official changelog is now detailed at Sony's site linked above, with 2.20 changes including:

- Playlists that were created in Music and Photo can now be copied along with the content they contain to a PSP system. You can play the content on the PSP system in the order that was set on the PS3 system.

- Resume play* can now be used on a BD or DVD even if the PS3 system has been turned off or the disc has been ejected. However, there are some discs on which resume play cannot be used.
- DivX content that exceeds 2 GB can now be played. Also, subtitles can now be displayed for DivX content.

Currently via Network Update (or linked below), those interested can grab PS3 Firmware Update v2.20 hot off the press!

We'll post an official changelog when it's available, but for the most part 2.20 changes are detailed in the Press Release from earlier today.

PS3 Firmware 2.16 (EUR) Update Available for Collectors!

50°
339w ago - Periodically Sony includes interim retail PS3 Firmware updates on PS3 game discs and console region revisions.

Examples include PS3 Firmware 1.02 (on launch title Game Discs including Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom), 1.11 (on early JAP PS3 consoles), and 1.55 (on early 60GB PS3 consoles). These never make it to actual PS3 Firmware updates via PSN, as they generally only contain a minor change/bugfix.

Today we have another one of these cases- PS3 Firmware 2.16 Update was extracted from a Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (EUR) Game Disc and uploaded to the Internet. No, it doesn't contain any 'supersecret holes' (lol) and it unpacks just like all the rest do with PS3 Update Unpacker v1 but for the collectors out there it's available below- enjoy!

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)
