PS3 1.90 Update

Sony today revealed an impending update for the PlayStation 3 that will bring several important updates for video support and customizing the interface. Those who like to customize their video playback will be especially satisfied, Sony claims. Blu-Ray movies can now be forced to play back at a film-like 24 frames per second at 1080p when sent through HDMI, eliminating some hitches for plasmas and other TVs that prefer the slower frame rate. AVCHD support is equally new and lets owners of Sony's SR-series camcorders watch clips either on the hard drive or stored on a memory card. Video settings for PS1 and PS2 games are now changeable in-game rather than requiring a restart, Sony adds.

Other more evident changes involve the ability to set a custom background for the cross media bar interface, support for emoticons in messages and inline typing for web forms, and browsing enhancements such as better bookmarking and a browser security tool. The 1.90 update should be ready by tomorrow for Japan and is likely to arrive in an English-language edition at the same time or shortly afterwards. [via Impress]
