Sony Release New DivX Playback For PS3

New PS3 Firmware Update

Sony have released their new firmware update v2.10 for the PS3 and along with DivX support there are a couple of other little treats that are sure to tickle your fancy.

The main feature included in the new update is undoubtedly the new DivX and VC-1 (WMV) file type compatibility. Now you can stream all your DivX stuff that is piling up on your PC through your PS3 without any fuss whatsoever. To add to the DivX news, the Blu-Ray Disc Profile has been upped a class to 1.1 which means picture-in-picture playback is now an option and that the PS3 keeps the tag of "Best Value Blu-Ray Player"

Aside from functional file types and new disc performances Sony have also blessed us with a new Voice Changer feature. The Voice Changer feature has been added to voice / video chat and will allow you to change the pitch and tone of your voice. So, if you want to voice your opinion like "Arnie" or giggle to your Star Wars loving chums like R2D2, you'll be there for hours experimenting with this new tool.
