PS3 2.1 Update Leak

Sony is about to update the PS3 with its promised DivX playback and other features, according to information posted on Sony's PlayStation Spain website. The version 2.1 upgrade will bring native support for the video format either stored locally or streamed across the network. It should also bring the anticipated Blu-ray Final Standard Profile support that allows the console to use picture-in-picture commentary and other special features previously reserved only for the newest stand-alone movie players.

The game system will also add native playback of the same Microsoft VC-1 format used for HD DVD and some downloadable videos, a Voice Changer to modify the quality of microphone chat, and a means of storing Blu-ray movie titles' copyright management information on the hard drive instead of loading it with each play instance. The update is slated to appear as early as tomorrow and is likely to be available for most territories when it becomes available. [via NeoGAF]
