Sony PS3 firmware update coming soon

The PlayStation folks have just posted a quick note about the upcoming update to the PS3, v2.6. This particular update will enhance the media features of the game console. One of the new ‘key features’ is the Photo Gallery app that just sorts your images in various ways based on camera used, event date, time, etc.

Lame, I know, but there’s more.

The 2.60 update also includes:

Guest access to PlayStation Store – This enables non-PlayStation Network members to browse through the storefront to check out the latest games, demos, videos, etc.

DivX 3.11 support – Videos in this format can now be played on PS3.
