Find out what features are included in PS3 system software update 2.10.

An update to the PS3 system software was released on December 18, 2007. If you update your PS3 system, the system software version will be 2.10 and the following features will be updated. In order to download PS3 system software version 2.10, you will need a minimum 120Mb of free space on either the PS3 Hard Disk Drive (System Update) or on removable storage media (PC Update).

The PLAYSTATION 3 system software version 2.10 update includes the following:

* Voice Changer

The Voice Changer feature has been added to voice / video chat. Visit the Voice Changer guide in Help & Support under PS3 at eu.playstation.com for more details.



Using this feature, you can change the tone of a voice that is input from an audio device such as a microphone. High and low-pitched tones can each be adjusted to five preset levels. You can vary the tone when using voice / video chat under Friends.


Other new or revised features in version 2.10

Music

* You can now select [Type 3] as an option under Settings > [Music Settings] > [Bitmapping]. This bitmapping process was developed specifically for the PS3TM system to enhance audio playback.

Video

* DivX and VC-1 (WMV) have been added to the types of files that can be played. *
* Blu-ray Disc Profile 1.1 is now supported. **
* [BD Data Utility] has been added. ***

*
- To play VC-1 (WMV) format files, you must go to Settings > [System Settings] and set [Enable WMA Playback].
- Copyright-protected files or files that were encoded by using DivX 3.11 cannot be played. - Files that are 2GB or more cannot be played.
** You may now be able to use several additional features such as playback of two videos at the same time with Profile 1.1-compatible Blu-ray Discs. The available features vary depending on the disc.
*** The management data that is used by the Blu-ray Disc is saved.

Note:

* This system software update includes all features contained in previous versions.
* The new system software will preserve any settings previously made to the PLAYSTATION 3. Depending on the software title, you may not be able to play without first updating the PS3 system software.
* Do not perform updates using any data other than the official update data provided by Sony Computer Entertainment over a network or on disc media, and do not perform updates by methods other than those described in the product documentation or in this site. If an update is performed using data from another source, by another method, or with a PS3 system that has been altered or modified in any way, the PS3 system may not operate properly and may not be able to install the official update data. Any of these actions may void the PS3 system warranty and affect your ability to obtain warranty services and repair services from Sony Computer Entertainment.

I knew it would come this month.


Glad about it. I love these updates and I can totally NOT understand that Sony is actually going to release less of these updates in the future, just because a bunch of customers are complaining that they have to download an update too much. How can you complain about something which improves the functionality of your product??

So I am guessing the closest thing we're going to see ingame XMB is in HOME.
"We are looking at a number of enhancements related to accessing some of the XMB features during gameplay, including messaging your friends," PlayStation Network director of operations Eric Lempel told the ShackBlog. "While there's no timeline to announce at this point, we've heard loud and clear from consumers that in-game XMB access is one of the most requested PS3 enhancements."

Voice changer lol. That worked out great with XBL. This must do miracles for the already limped talking community on the PS3.

Why are people happy about Blu-ray 1.1?
True Picture in Picture support among other things. I think this brings the PS3 to full 2.0 compatibility, AFAIK the only thing different between Profile 1.1 and 2.0 is the ability to connect to the internet.

How can they not support 3.11? Divx by default supports this. Disappointing.

Will we need a newer version of UPnP software for DivX? Even copying the files over can be a bit of a hassle with larger videos but TVersity updates pretty regularly anyways.

It's a videogame console. Why not have a little fun? Why so serious?

Because we all know how it worked out for xbox 1. It was a horror show with only little girls and bass tones.

If you have a 360 and a PS3 you can stream two porn movies to your TV at the same time.
2 > 1.

Have you ever played a game with people using voice changers? Annoying!
I've played plenty of games with people who aren't using voice changers and it's still annoying. Chances are the people who will annoy with voice changers are the same people who would find a way to annoy without them.

Beyond that, it can't hurt to give younger players a way to diguise their youth online for their own protection.

All your lovely old Divx encodes wont work. Though I can see why they didnt, 3.11 Alpha was just a hack which was illegal to use :p. Its what the majority of dvd rips were used for. So you may find that a lot of videos you have don't work.

Check the properties of your videos, if they have DIVXMP4 V3, then chances are they wont play if this post is to believed.

Doesn't the Spanish text say you can't COPY files:

- compressed with DivX 3.11
- bigger than 2GB

I think... :lol

"reproducir" = copy ? reproduce ?

Right ? Right ????

Someone to lighten me : is there any major video format that the ps3 will not be able to read AFTER this fw 2.1 update ?
x264 "High Profile" ...While its not major, the enthusiast community has moved to it. Producing PS3 capable encodes with it makes quality suffer.
