Sony has updated the PlayStation 3 firmware to version 2.60, introducing a new Photo Gallery application, DivX 3.11 video support and the ability to access the PlayStation Store without signing up for PSN beforehand.
The Photo Gallery application is available to install separately once you update to 2.60, and allows you to group photos by date, time, event or how many people are in them, create playlists based on things like facial expressions and age groups, and give the resulting slideshows fancy picture frames and backing music.
There's a video on the US PlayStation Blog showing how the app works, from its walk-of-shame timeline to the playlist functionality, with lots of sample photographs of bicycles next to rivers and dogs wearing hats and so on.
Support for DivX 3.11-encoded videos will no doubt prove popular too. Sony points out that this is "great for reliving some of those hilarious home video moments" - obviously a fan of 'amateur'.
Meanwhile, Sony has also updated the PSP firmware to version 5.03, which apparently "improves system stability during use of some features", according to PSN's director of operations Eric Lempel.
