Just a quick snippet of unexpected news for a Saturday night. Sony has updated their PlayStation.com website with details on the features that the most recently pushed firmware – 4.40 – has introduced.
We had previously though it was just the usual stability and improvements that comes with an incremental firmware update – the like of which we’ve seen from Sony almost countless times for the PlayStation 3. But Sony usually reserves the x.x0 firmware updates for slightly more significant improvements. Well, it seems like 4.40 is no different, although it’ll be a while before we can fully benefit from the big new feature.
In May, Sony plans to unlock the ability to allow users “to download content purchased from [their] online store to their PS3.” There’s going to be a “detailed guide” for how to make the most of it, apparently, but hopefully they’ll make it as seamless as possible so that you can browse the SEN store via the website and set up all your downloads to your PS3 from a web browser.
You can also use your Sony wireless stereo headsets with PS2 Classics you’ve bought off the store now. But that’s not exactly a headline-grabber, is it?
