PS3 253 Brings Full Flash

An impending PlayStation 3 firmware upgrade should improve the behavior of the console for video sites, a set of release notes obtained early by CVG point out. The 2.53 update will explicitly allow for full-screen Flash content, permitting web games and video sites like YouTube to occupy the entire display rather than being limited to the web browser. Appropriately, new settings have also been included to intelligently shut off controllers or the core system after enough idle time.

Other changes are known to include better handling of native PS3 software and a new account creation screen to more easily help new users get started. Background downloading and other additions appear carried over from notes for the 2.52 update. Sony itself says the newer patch should be available through PS3s tomorrow.
