Sony PS3 firmware update 2.00 features detailed


5:24 PM on 11.07.2007



The PlayStation Blog lays out some of the features we can expect to see in the upcoming version 2.00 system update that is coming this week, and the above video from Games Radar does a pretty good job of showing some of those features off. We know you're bummed about the missing in-game XMB capability for this update, but there are other neat features to play with for now.

One of the most notable new features is the Remote Play capability, which will enable users to turn on their PS3 and use its files via the internet, through their PSP. Users will be able to access their videos, music, and pictures, and will even be able to switch off the PS3 remotely when they're done.

Among other updates is a new themes feature, which lets users easily change the look of the XMB, backgrounds, icons, and even sounds. Themes will be made available on the PlayStation Store and PlayStation.com.

Finally, Sony has added a feature called the Information Board. This is basically a news ticker that will scroll headlines in the upper right-hand corner of the screen when enabled. News and updates will be broadcasted through this feature, and they can be clicked through to read more details on the headline.   

It's not exactly what we had hoped for, but at least we know that they're working on it.
