PS3 Version 2.2 Update

As promised, Sony today issued its version 2.2 update for the PlayStation 3. The firmware upgrade primarily adds Blu-ray Profile 2.0 support and allows HD movies to be released in April and onward to use Internet-based features, such as downloadable extras and live games. Viewers watching Blu-ray and DVD movies can also return to movies from where they left off after the movie is ejected. The software also sets up the framework for large downloaded or shared movies, and includes the PS3's first support for DivX and Windows Media videos larger than 2GB.

Other additions to the PS3's software primarily touch on the PSP and allow it to be used as a remote control for the PS3's music as well as to synchronize specific music and photo playlists for offline playback. An improved PS3 web browser and streaming of non-Flash video are also new to the refresh.

The update is free but requires at least 1GB of free storage for the Blu-ray Profile 2.0 features, which need the space as a local cache.
