PS3 Firmware 1.82 Coming Soon

Posted by Aaron on Tuesday, June 26, 2007

Eric Lempel Director of PlayStation Network Operations has posted at the Official Playstation blog that PS3 Firmware 1.82 update will be released in the next few days.

Here is the post:

Hey everyone, you told us you wanted to hear about updates a few days in advance, so here’s a quick heads up that we have a PS3 firmware update in the works. Scheduled for release in the next few days, firmware 1.82 is an update that enables the playback of AVC High Profile (H.264/MPEG-4) files. As most of you know, these are high quality files that you’ll now be able to play on your PS3. Hopefully this update is moving us closer to the audio playback features many of you commented about in my post the other week. We’re continuing to evaluate and improve things across the board, including PS2 software compatibility. I’ll chime in here quickly with an update once the firmware is live and ready. Thanks for all of your support and feedback, keep it coming!
