PS3 2.0 Update Live


Posted November 8, 2007 - By Stephen Johnson

Sony is updating the PlayStation 3's firmware to 2.0.

Generally, an entire number higher (as opposed to a fraction) means huge, awesome changes, but this one is more like subtle, much-needed improvements, including remote access and security features that may, someday, be very important. Sadly, the wished-for toast making application has not materialized. Neither has the onboard naked lady simulator. Here's what will come with the download, though:

  • Remote Start: Upgrades the Remote Play feature. Enables users to turn on a PS3 system remotely with a PSP system from a Wi-Fi hotspot. This is a great feature, allowing mobile access to your video collection.
  • Customizable themes: At last. All praise Odin.
  • Playlists: You can now create playlists to organize content under [Music] and [Photo].

  • Information Board has been added as a feature under [Network]. PlayStation® related news can be displayed on the XMB™ screen.
  • [PLAYSTATION®Network] has been added as a category in the XMB™ home menu.
  • Overall
    New grouping options for the [Group Content] feature have been added to the options menu. 
  • Settings
    [Color], [Background], and [Font] have been added as options under [Theme Settings].
    You can now select [Brightness] as an option under [Theme Settings] > [Background].
    The procedure for setting [Internet Connection Settings] under [Network Settings] has been changed.
    You can now select Canon printers with the [Printer Selection] option under [Printer Settings]. For a list of compatible printers, select here.
  • Game
    [Vibration Function] has been added as an option under [Controller Settings] in the menu that is displayed when you press the PS button on a DUALSHOCK®3 wireless controller. *
    *Available for purchase in early 2008.
  • Network
    You can now view video content (as a progressive download) as it is being downloaded from PLAYSTATION®Store.
    [Trend Micro Web Security for PS3] has been added as an option under the Internet browser.
  • Friends
    The voice / video chat menu has been changed.
    You can now use the PLAYSTATION®Eye camera for voice / video chat.*
    * For details on the PLAYSTATION®Eye camera, select here.
  • You can update your system software by any of the following methods:
  • System Update »
    Update using the PS3™ system's [System Update] feature.
  • Update using a PC »
    Download update data using a PC and save on storage media* or a USB Mass Storage device. Copy the update data to the PS3™ system's hard disk and perform the update.
    *An appropriate USB adaptor (not included) is required to use storage media with some models of the PS3™ system. .
  • Update using disc media »
    Update using update data that is included on a game disc.
