PS3 2 6 Photo Gallery

Sony today revealed that the PlayStation 3's version 2.6 update will add a major new photo management feature. The simply-titled Photo Gallery will give the console much more advanced control that can sort images down to the specific time window and choice of camera hardware but also less tangible data such as the dominant colors in images or visible smiles. Slideshows are also more advanced and let users create specific playlists, including ones set to the user's choice of music.

The 2.6 patch further adds support for DivX 3.11-encoded videos and the option of accessing the PlayStation Store as a guest rather than whoever is signed into the console. Sony doesn't say how soon the update will appear but typically announces details within a few weeks.

Also enroute in the near future is a PSP 5.03 update that Sony says will focus on unnamed security issues and reducing the potential for crashes.
