PS3 firmware 2.01 released

Stability updates in the main.

Sony has released the PlayStation 3 2.01 firmware.

The patch is primarily aimed at improving system stability during gameplay, when you're using the Internet browser and Information Board, or when you employ the upscaler for PlayStation 2 software.

It also stops the Remote Start feature introduced in patch 2.0 - which lets you turn on the PS3 remotely using the PSP - causing unintended power on.

For more on what firmware 2.0 introduced, check out our previous coverage, including an update on PS2 rumble support for DualShock 3 controllers.
