Sony has updated the PlayStation 3 firmware to version 1.80. Version 1.80 features upscaling of PlayStation One and PlayStation 2 games and DVD movies up to full 1080p HD resolution when viewed on a compatible TV.
This update means users with an existing DVD collection will be able to view DVDs in full HD quality. PlayStation One and PlayStation 2 titles will also look even more impressive. Version 1.80 of the firmware also allows users to enjoy remote play on the PSP across the internet, allowing access to your PlayStation 3 anywhere in the world where an internet connection is available.
Version 1.80 also allows users on a home network to view and play media content such as images, music and video on their PS3, that is stored on their DLNA3 enabled devices such as PCs and laptops elsewhere in the house. There are also a few minor enhancements including the ability to print photo images stored on the PlayStation 3's hard-drive, we assume backwards compatibility has also improved. The firmware should be available very shortly.
