No your eyes do not betray you, this most recent update is 2.60 and yes the most recent one before it was 2.53. I have no idea of the reason behind the jump other than maybe the other ones in between were minor ones and were perhaps geographically specific. But anyway you are reading this because you want to know what’s in this new update.
You can now use a new application called Photo Gallery to enhance your experience of viewing photos. Using Photo Gallery, you can group photos in various ways and create playlists of selected photos. You can also select a photo frame for each playlist that you create.
Other new or revised features in version 2.60:
* You can now play DivX 3.11-encoded video files.
* You can now access PlayStation®Store without a PlayStation®Network account.
Well that’s it folks. The Photo Gallery thing is cool and the support for DivX 3.11 encoded files was needed. As far as accessing the PS Store without a PSN account, I don’t see the point of why anyone would want to do it if they still need to create an account to be able to download content, it’s a waste. Anyway I am still waiting for Sony to come with a game changing update, at least the year is young.
