All of you PlayStation 3 owners now have another feature to brag about.
According to the official PlayStation blog, a firmware update (v2.60) is now available, and will enhance some of the gaming console’s multimedia capabilities. The key feature is a new, fancy photo gallery, which allows users to organize and display digital pics.
However, this is a lot cooler than your average photo slideshow. Users can organize pics by date/time, the camera used, facial expressions, and even the number or ages of people in the shots. You can also create slideshows with music or create photo playlists.
Other firmware perks allow non-Playstation Network members to access the PlayStation store, as well as DivX 3.11 support.
The update is now available. However, you will have to install it separately from the XMB (XrossMediaBar). To find the firmware, go to the Photo section on the XMB, then Photo Gallery, and press the X.
