PSN Downtime: Paves the way for new video store?

100°
325w ago - A new menu option has appeared under account management on the PS3 which suggests a movie store is coming up soon.

If you follow this path: XMB > Account Management > Account Management > Activate System, you will see a new option to activate the system for different types of content, for now you can only select game but previously you could only activate the system for all content.

This change suggests that more types of content are coming to the PS3 very soon - perhaps the downtime was for a server upgrade?

With Firmware 2.4 and its host of tasty features due soon, we're quite excited (as usual) about the PS3 this year. We're fully expecting a raft of announcements for the video store and associated partners at E3.

PSP Firmware 4.01 tomorrow, features Improved Video Playback

50°
325w ago - Sony's Eric Lempel, director of PlayStation Network operations, has sent word that PSP Firmware 4.01 is scheduled to be released soon. The update will include two main changes, the latter being improved video playback for certain file types.

* Display of search results under Internet Search has been improved for certain languages.
* Playback of video content under Video has been improved for certain file types.

It would be nice to know which file types... Does this mean DivX and XviD format files will finally be playable through the PSP's built-in video player?

Maybe, but if so, you'd think Sony would at least mention it, instead of vaguely stating that compatibility has been improved. Either way, we'll find out for sure when the Firmware is released.
