PlayStation 3 users who logged in today may have noticed that you were greeted with the newest system software update, firmware 2.20. Much like the last time around, Eric Lempel has created yet another video to demonstrate the features that you'll find within the new software. We've included the video below, so if you weren't able to update yet or you're at work waiting to get home and take care of it, here's a little bit of what you have to look forward to:

PS3 keep evolving, while the xbug 360 is stuck in 2005 with last gen. tehcnology.
PS3 the best video game console in the hsitory of gaming.

YES!!! I've wanted to save things off the browser for a long time now.
- 2:05pm EDT - March 25th, 2008
yes it needed to be faster im very happy about that
- 2:23pm EDT - March 25th, 2008
looking at this web page on my ps3 and the video won't play. youtube works but bbc iplayer doesn't. i am probably the biggest fan of the ps3 but i believe the browser has much work that is needed if it is to even come close to internet explorer on the PC. i know it's not it's main function but it would be nice to play videos on websites on my telly

Nicely done there buddy ps3 is the future of gaming and yeah i dont like the web browser in the beginning because it was too slow and now they updated the web browser it is faster now so ill be using my ps3 alot now.I hope in the future sony will still update the web browser.

Everything sounds cool with the 2.20 update. I guess the big update that many PS3 owners are wanting is in-game XMB, but the Blu-Ray update is still pretty nice.
I wonder if that BD Live feature could be used with future Playstation 3 games for Exclusive Downloadable content? Hmmm. It sounds like a possibility to me. I'm pretty sure that Sony will figure out some way to incorporate BD Live with PS3 games.

What blu ray fliks support live?
- 4:30pm EDT - March 25th, 2008
I kind of hate the Idea that I cant watch this video from a major Playstation website when I'm on my Sony Playstation 3
- 6:35pm EDT - March 25th, 2008
Great update with an even better demonstration. Thanks Eric!
- 6:41pm EDT - March 25th, 2008
Hopefully Sony will be smart enough to publish videos like this for ALL FUTURE firmware updates!
- 8:44pm EDT - March 25th, 2008
Still waiting 4 something better
- 10:41pm EDT - March 25th, 2008
I agree with comment #11. I use this sight as my ps3 home page and would like to see the videos using my ps3 browser. Hint to psu there has to be a way for you to post it in a ps3 and pc format?
- 10:50pm EDT - March 25th, 2008
@Gomersoul is right i want to watch all flash..quicktime videos etc on ps3 web browser ....hopefully they'll do somin bout it
- 12:35am EDT - March 26th, 2008
i hope sony will update the ps3 browser at least we neeed a new flash player
- 6:05am EDT - March 26th, 2008
psn id: gingo.... like the idea of Sony giving us an in depth view of what the firmware does, blu ray live sounds cool
- 7:37am EDT - March 26th, 2008
Why is there an ad for a Wii-exclusive game on this page?
Well, yeah, I also think it's nice for Sony to explain it to us in-depth :)
- 10:32am EDT - March 26th, 2008
Its great that they show us a video but have they showed us everything? We all know from previous updates that they provide us with a list and then later you read of another feature that was not mentioned in the list. Why Sony do this?
With the 'save file' feature, that was there before 2.20. I have saved images (that didn't have a link) from the web by pressing triangle to bring up the side bar and there somewhere is the option to save target.
