PS3 Update: BD-Live
Sony is expected to release a update for the PS3 later this month. It is said to add Blu-ray Disc Profile 2.0 (BD-Live capability), copy photos and music playlists onto their PSP, and even use it as a remote control for playing music and stream video files. Another special feature is "resume play", which will allow the user to begin playing at the last point of stoppage for Blu-ray discs and DVDs even when the disc is taken out of the drive. Additional Blu-ray players are slated for release with a ethernet port but not BD-Live, which may come in later software update.
