New PlayStation 3 Firmware Upgrade 2.10 adds Blu-ray Profile 1.1 Support

PlayStation 3 Firmware Upgrade 2.10 Just some time back, the Sony PlayStation UK website revealed the new features of the PlayStation 3 Firmware upgrade 2.10, which should be available on the consoles tomorrow (Dec. 18th).

The key updates claim to be a sure treat for all Blu-ray movie lovers. Support for Blu-ray Disc Profile 1.1 will be offered through the latest upgrade. Well, if you’re a little confused with these super technical terms, then in simple language what we are trying to say is that now the PS3 will support picture-in-picture and audio mixing features along with the new BD Data Utility.

Further more, support for support for DivX and VC-1 (wmv) encoded files has also been included allowing you to finally watch all those perfectly authorized videos on your PC through PS3. A “voice changer” option will be also be added that will enable users to “mask the sounds of their voice when chatting on audio or video chat over the PlayStation Network.”

An audio enhancing feature which will help you store music on your PS3 has also been bundled. Also, there is a third music setting (Type 3) when viewing “Music Settings” in the “Bitmapping” subfolder.

But all the same, there are yet a few problems that have not yet been dealt with. For instance, the PS3 will stay play ONLY copyright-protected files, files encoded by using DivX 3.11, or that are 2GB or larger.

PlayStation 3 Firmware upgrade 2.10 shall take 120MB space of your PS3 hard drive.
