According to Tom Kiss
, the PLAYSTATION 3 is getting updated next week. Why should you care? It finally introduces the Advanced Remote Play functionality that we've been dreaming about
. The 1.6 firmware revision for the PS3 will allow you to access your PS3's media content from any
wi-fi point in the world. For example, let's say you have an episode of Death Note
saved on your PS3. By having Remote Play enabled, you'll be able to stream that video to your PSP whilst at work.
The connectivity opens a lot of potential. "If I have my MP3 Walkman or my iPod, or digital camera connected to PS3 then I can access those devices too," a spokesman for Sony said less than a month ago
. However, don't expect to play back your DVDs or Blu-Ray movies on the go: Remote Play hasn't been able to access disc content
, and that probably won't change for a while.
