This is great news for those of us who have a PS3 with no upscaling capabilities...now the 360 and PS3 have equal functionality...with PS3 having the better of the formats!


------------------------------------

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) announced today availability of the latest version of the PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3) firmware. Version 1.80 features upscaling of PlayStation® and PlayStation 2 games, and DVD movies up to full 1080p HD resolution when viewed on a compatible HD TV set.


In a comprehensive update to PS3's already impressive capabilities, Version 1.80 also allows users to enjoy Remote Play on their PSP across the internet, allowing them to access their PS3 anywhere in the world where a broadband internet connection is available2.


Version 1.80 also allows users on a home network to seamlessly view and play rich media content such as images, music and video on their PS3, that is stored on their DLNA3 enabled devices such as PCs and laptops elsewhere in the house, reinforcing PS3's credentials as a home entertainment hub that truly deserves pride of place in the Living Room.


A host of other enhancements include the ability to print photo images stored on PS3's hard disk or inserted storage media to a selection of Epson printers.


PS3 owners will be able to upgrade their PS3 with the latest Version 1.80 firmware from 24th May 2007.

Holy cow! The upscaling and network functions are a MAJOR upgrade to the PS3 capabilities.


Wonder how the connection to networked media (if it will) work?

I am so excited because my 480p on my TV really sucks...so having the ability to watch movies without ghosting is making me happy.

Now I can finally watch DVD:s again



I was foolish enough to sell my upscaling Sony DVD when I got the PS3 only to discover the horrible pic quality too late.


I´m of to the pub to celebrate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yippie. I really did not want to buy another DVD player for upscaling. I want to use the PS3 for everything. This is great!! How will the network media stuff work with a Mac.

Yeah, I don't quite understand the excitement over DVD up-scaling with the PS3. Its de-interlacing performance will still be atrocious.

I doubt I'll watch any more SDDVDs... maybe my LOTREE or Star Wars movies... but should hopefully come in handy on San Andreas and Battlestar: Galactica.

Good news on the update. I've got a few DVD's I haven't got to yet like iRobot to try out.


As for my 360 and PS3, my PS3's DVD playback looks better than the 360's. It is also silent versus my 360 being very loud which makes it a even crappier as DVD player.

This sounds like it might push me over the edge on picking up a PS2 title or two, at least as rentals.
