PS3 and PSP both get new firmware

6.2, half a dozen the other. No, wait.

Sony has updated PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable with new firmware.

PS3 gets the bump to version 3.1, introducing a little bit of Facebook integration, changes to photo viewing and friends list tweaks. We wrote some more about that the other day, and now the European PlayStation blog has pictures and stuff.

PSP, meanwhile, is up to version 6.2, again detailed by the Euro blog, and the principal additions are options to transfer video and photo playlists to the portable either from PC (using Media Go 1.3) or PS3.

The latest PSP firmware also introduces the Digital Comics reader, but the store to go with it doesn't launch until December, so there's not much you can do with it. When it does go live, it will do so first in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, with other regions to follow.
