PS3 to get BD-Live functionality this month

Sometime in the next few days Sony will release firmware v2.20 for the PS3. The impending update will bring the Blu-ray player/console up to date with Profile 2.0. This will make the PS3 the first BD-Live functional player on the market. A handful of other features and/or enhancements were revealed as well.

* The ability to copy PS3 Music and Photo playlists to a PSP system. We introduced the ability to create Music and Photo playlists on the PS3 in firmware update v2.0. Now you can easily export your playlists to your PSP.
* You can now play DivX and WMV format files that are over 2 GB.
* Resume Play – begin playing a DVD or BD disc from the point where you previously stopped it, even if you eject the disc and insert a different movie or game.
* Use your PSP as a remote control to play back your music files on your PS3 without turning on your TV.
* The Internet browser now displays some web pages faster. In addition [Save Target] has been added as an option under file. This option lets you save a file that is linked to a web page to your PS3 hard drive or storage media.
