Upcoming PlayStation 3 Firmware 2.60 Update Details!
PlayStation Network Operations Director Eric Lempel shared the following details on PS3 Firmware 2.60 today:
Hi, everyone, we have a system software updates for PS3 coming soon, and I wanted to provide you with a sneak peak at the details.
The PS3 firmware update (v2.60) is designed primarily to enhance the system's media capabilities. The key feature is a new Photo Gallery application, which delivers a suite of tools for sorting through and displaying your digital photo collection.
Digital pictures can be organized in groups according to various criteria, including the camera used to take the photos, the event date and time, colors in the photos, as well as the number, ages, or facial expressions of the people pictured.
Here's a video walk-through of firmware 2.60 that shows off some of what the Photo Gallery can do.
You can also create slideshows set to music and build photo playlists with an easy-to-use interface. The Photo Gallery application will need to be installed separately from the XMB after you update your PS3's firmware.
To install the Photo Gallery application, go to the Photo section on the XMB, select Photo Gallery and press the X button.
The 2.60 update also includes:
- Guest access to PlayStation Store - This enables non-PlayStation Network members to browse through the storefront to check out the latest games, demos, videos, etc.
- DivX 3.11 support - Videos in this format can now be played on PS3.
As always, we look forward to hearing your feedback.

PEOPLE.. the guy says something about: the ability to browse the PSN Store even if you are not a member of the PSN network!!!
DOES THIS MEAN THAT THE TERITORIES THAT DON'T HAVE ACCES TO A PSN STORE NOW CAN??? and through that be able to acces HOME??!
PLEASE this is very important to me I live in ROMANIA!
I'll test this later to see the answer on my own but it would mean a lot to us! (the gaming comunity that lives in theritoryes outside of SONY VISION) BLEAH!
HOME i highly doubt, you can access PSTORE most likely.
i dont know because i live in UK, but the photo gallery is pretty awsome nice smooth sleek look!

Finally got home
Finally I got home dying to try out the new GUEST feature hoping that i'll be able to access at least the PS STORE from may main account...
IT STILL doesn't work.. I got my hopes up for nothing... probably it's reading the users country and based on that it allows guest access or not... It's not changing anything for me ...
