Firmware 2.52 Lands

Just a quick heads up that 2.52 will be awaiting your PS3’s attention the next time you switch it on, and features the following tweaks:

  • The playback quality of some PS3 format software has been improved.
  • A text entry issue that occurs when using the on-screen keyboard, USB keyboard or Bluetooth keyboard with some PS3 format software has been addressed.  Change list below:

– Multiple microphones usage has been enabled.


– “Previous/Next” operation in BGM function freezing issue fixed.

[OSK/USB keyboard text input]
– Opening/closing OSK function now stable.
– Prediction & conversion function issue has been resolved.

– PAL (50Hz) output of 59.94Hz content enabled.
(if an NTSC TV is used, no problem can be found)

Via the PS Blog, changelist from GAF.  Thanks to our very own Jas-n for the heads up.
