PS3 owners, dig out your USB cables; firmware 1.82 hits

The PlayStation 3 firmware revision that Sony’s Eric Lempel mentioned a few days ago in Sony’s official blog is finally live and available for download. 

The update, version 1.82, enables playback of AVC High Profile (H.264/MPEG-4) files,  . If this means absolutely nothing to you, you’re not alone. Don’t worry your pretty little head over it. If you do know what I’m talking about, then there’s certainly on reason for me to explain this to you, now is there?

Whether you want it or not, the firmware update will be necessary, so go find your USB cable and set aside five to ten minutes of your time.
