As planned, today PS3 Firmware v1.80 is now available for download (v1.80 USA and v1.80 EUR). kizman has shared with us on iRC EFnet #PS3News a few comparision pics of the new upscaling as follows: [Scaling: ON / Filtering: OFF] Pic #1 and Pic #2. Although there is no official changelog posted yet on PlayStation.com, yesterday's Press Release detailed what is to be expected in version 1.80. Needless to say, we don't recommend updating your PS3 Firmware if you are looking forward to running PS3 iSOs and homebrew when a method is publically available... so do it at your own risk. Please post all related feedback in our ongoing PS3 v1.80 Firmware available for download! Forum thread.
In related news, $ony is also preparing to release PSP Firmware v3.50 at the end of this month, which reportedly is set to further enhance PS3-to-PSP connectivity by providing support for the PS3's new Internet-enabled Remote Play feature (available in PS3 Firmware v1.80). This allows PSP users to access their PS3 remotely from any available WiFi connection.
