Shifting attention from one overhyped product (the iphone) to another, this time the PS3.  Sony has released updated firmware for the PS3 games console.

Firmware version 1.82 adds the following features:

  • Support for playback of AVC High Profile (H.264/MPEG-4) format video has been added. * * High image quality encoding method used by Blu-ray Discs and other media
  • Playability status with the PS3™ system has changed for some PlayStation® and PlayStation®2 format titles. To check on the latest status, visit the search site for compatible titles.

It's good news on the H.264/MPEG-4 front but I wish Sony would be clearer with regards to game compatibility - searching through a database isn't the easiest and most user-friendly way to find out what's changed on the compatibility front.  A list would be much better.
