Sony has announced Version 2.00 of the PlayStation 3 firmware, to debut Thursday, November 8th worldwide, including greater PS3/PSP integration. This upgrade allows music, photo and video viewing via the PSP and a Wi-Fi connection, as well as personalized playlists and a new PlayStation Network XMB menu category. Going into further details, this update specifically includes the ability to turn a PS3 system on and off remotely, using a PSP system via the Remote Play function, as well as the opportunity to listen to the music, look at the photos and watch the videos saved on the PS3 from anywhere in the world. Version 2.00 allows for the creation of personalised playlists in both the music and photo sections, and allows for customisation of the XMB (XrossMediaBar) menu screen. Further upgrades include the addition of an Information Board on XMB to keep people up to date on the latest PlayStation news, the inclusion of a new PlayStation Network category and logo for easier navigation and Trend Micro Web Security, an initially free Internet security system for the web browser. However, it's noted of the Web Security function, provided by Trend Micro: "The service will be provided free of charge until the end of April, 2008 on a trial basis. The date and method to switch to a pay service and the price will be announced as soon as a decision is made."
