For all the naysayers that said the PS3 would never get profile 1.1 & when they were proved wrong about that started saying "well it'll never get profile 2.0", guess what................

Firmware v2.20 bringing BD-Live to PS3

From the Playstation blog

Hi again everyone. Here’s a quick preview of the next PLAYSTATION 3 system software update coming up in the next few days. Firmware v2.20, introduces a number of features to further enhance your PLAYSTATION 3 as the hub of your entertainment center.

Most notably, the update enables the PS3 to support Blu-ray Disc Profile 2.0, also known as BD-Live. You can connect now to the Internet while playing discs that support BD-Live to obtain additional content and special features. These features vary from disc to disc, and will keep your BD discs fresh with new content and in some cases exclusive content only accessible to owners of BD-Live enabled discs. On April 8th Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release The 6th Day and Walk Hard on Blu-ray; these titles will be among the first to take advantage of BD-Live. With this update, the PLAYSTATION 3 becomes the first Blu-ray player on the market with BD-Live functionality.

Here are some of the other new features/enhancements that will be included in Firmware v2.20:

* The ability to copy PS3 Music and Photo playlists to a PSP system. We introduced the ability to create Music and Photo playlists on the PS3 in firmware update v2.0. Now you can easily export your playlists to your PSP.
* You can now play DivX and WMV format files that are over 2 GB.
* Resume Play - begin playing a DVD or BD disc from the point where you previously stopped it, even if you eject the disc and insert a different movie or game.
* Use your PSP as a remote control to play back your music files on your PS3 without turning on your TV.
* The Internet browser now displays some web pages faster. In addition [Save Target] has been added as an option under file. This option lets you save a file that is linked to a web page to your PS3 hard drive or storage media.

There are a few other tweaks and upgrades included in v2.20 - we’ll provide more specifics as the update is about to go live.


The PS3 might not be the best Blu-Ray player but it's still the most future proof player!

There are rumors that the LG BH200 may also be able to get a firmware update to be 2.0 compliant. . . but we'll see.

I don't really use my PS3 much, so I am probably an update or two behind anyway.
At my house, it has had more games played on it than movies.

Moose, I have always said that the PS3 was the most future proof BD player - not the best, but most future proof.

No mention of DTS-HD MA decoding in that press release, but there's a chance it might be bundles in that update anyway. We've gotten additional confirmation from insiders that DTS-HD MA decoding is definitely on the way, though no exact date of delivery has been suggested.
