PS3 firmware v2.53 available

Improves Flash. Aha.

Sony has popped out a firmware update for PS3.

Version 2.53 can be downloaded now - for real this time - and aims to improve the internet browser Flash player, according to the US PlayStation blog.

More sites will now be supported and full-screen play has been added, as has live movie (RTMP format) playback.

Flash 9 support was whispered into firmware update 2.5, but had a mixed reception from fans; some had problems, some didn't.

Incidentally, Eurogamer TV uses Flash Player 9, so you can now enjoy Johnny Minkley from the comfort of your sofa. So to speak.
