PS3 system update detailed

1.10 finalises quite a few bits.

The Japanese launch of the PlayStation 3 has shed some more light on the contents of the day-one firmware update, 1.10, which had previously been billed as a patch to enable PlayStation Network access.

Well, translations of the Sony Japan update page, and early sightings of the equivalent firmware data from Sony America, suggest that it does a bit more than that - tweaking a bunch of multimedia settings, allowing for downloads in the Internet browser and PS3 Store among other things.

QJ.net has been following closest, and also alerts readers to the sighting of a PS3 Open Platform website highlighting the system's ability to run "any desired third-party system software". We already know about PS3 Linux, and the suggestion is that the PS3 could be a lot more versatile besides that.
