PS3 Version 2 Update

Sony today provided details for the upcoming 2.0 upgrade to the PlayStation 3, which the company says should provide some important new features to the game system. The free upgrade will extend the console's Remote Play feature to allow remote activation through the Internet; users no longer have to leave their PS3s switched on to access music and videos from a PSP in another location. The patch is also the first to allow distinct themes for the main interface. In addition to changing the backdrop, users can alter the color or brightness of the menu items and drop in completely different icon sets. Some themes will be available initially with others to go live in the future, Sony notes.

Other significant updates will include an Information Board that provides an RSS feed of updates for the PlayStation network, the ability to create playlists and photo albums from the console, and a new Trend Micro security system to guard against outside threats to the system. Version 2 should go live worldwide as of tomorrow.
