I don't see how that is possible... unless perhaps you got a new game that included the 2.53 update on the disc and updated that way.
Well The only reason i say I have 2.53 because I have been able to see when people last logged on, and my video settings didn't say BD/DVD. It's been like that for a month. I remember it either saying 2.52 or 2.53. But I believe it said 2.53. I don't know why though. Anyway I can check what firmware I'm on?

Edit: I checked It says 2.52, But I have all the features of 2.53.

Still far from being a MEDIA CENTER replacement.

> NO SUBTITLE SUPPORT on video files (e.g. AVI, M2TS, etc...). Still hoping to watch on my PS3 japanese animes that I rip to my PC's hard drive...

> NO MKV SUPPORT !!! Jeeez !!!!! I know it's not a standard my the strict meaning, but ripping in MKV is the rule now. (I could remux to M2TS though but it has limitations..)

I think 2.52 and 2.53 firmware are combined in a way, i could be wrong though but it kinda seems that way.

I could be mistaken, but this just looks like the 2.50 changelog [jp].
