Sony has announced the latest 1.80 firmware for its PlayStation 3 console, adding resolution upscaling for PlayStation and PlayStation 2 titles as well as brings DVD playback to full 1080p resolution when viewed on a compatible television. The update is expected to be available on May 24, adding not only these visual enhancements, but also enabling Remote Play functionality for the PSP, allowing users to access their PlayStation 3 consoles remotely from any available wireless connection. In addition to requiring this latest PlayStation 3 firmware, Sony notes that Remote Play will also require users install PSP firmware version 3.50, which will be available at the end of May. Other additions bundled with the 1.80 release include the ability to print photo images stored on the PlayStation 3's hard drive inserted media on certain Epson printers. Additionally, following the upgrade users will also be able to network their consoles to their home computers in order to “seamlessly view and play” media content such as images or videos stored on their PCs.
