Hmm, after reading the change log I swear these appear to also be features of the PS4's firmware. Nice to see some parity support going on for the PS3.
Agreed. Glad to see they are providing some of the same features. It would only make sense, since some of the features are what at least some people have been asking for to begin with. It is definitely nice to see they have finally added caption support for DVDs and BDs. Let's hope they keep it up as much as possible.
ODE still working with OFW 4.53?
Last 2 updates all about trophies wtf?
Not just all about trophies. There have been other updates. Sure, trophies has been one of the ongoing themes, but it's not the only update.
Cool parity support to the PS3, but I'm still looking forward to the mp3/Audio CD support update for the PS4 that was mentioned to come sometime.
Nice to see my dual boot still works..
croft72, unfortunately the PS4 hardware is not designed to support audio CDs. The reader is only for DVDs and Blu-ray discs. The only way it would support audio CDs is if they changed the internal hardware. Though aside from that, I also look forward to the media support update for MP3s and hopefully external videos.
