Sony announces PlayStation 3 firmware update

By on
Sony has announced that the latest PlayStation 3 firmware update is set to be available today across the PlayStation Network. Version 2.53 isnít going to bring any groundbreaking new features to the table, but it will still bring a number of welcome tweaks, including full-screen Adobe Flash support for the consoleís integrated web browser.

Other changes include a new power saving option to stop your controllers from running out of battery while inactive as well as a number of new and revised settings. The new update will be available via the PlayStation Network later today Ė check out the full list of changes here.

On a separate note, there have been rumors about the PS3 getting more affordable in March 2009, but this topic has been brought up (and debunked) so many times that Iíll believe it when I see it.
