SONY UPDATES PLAYSTATION 3 FIRMWARE TO V1.31

Sony has released another firmware update for the PlayStation 3. V1.31 adds some options as far as video output goes and makes a few changes to how certain PlayStation 2 games function on the system. Here's the text on what's changed with the v1.31 update;

"The PLAYSTATION®3 system software version 1.31 update includes the following:
  • Settings

  • Game
  • Other
    • The compatibility of USB devices with PlayStation®2 format software titles has changed. For details on USB devices that can be used with system software version 1.30, select here.
    • New for 1.31: Playability status with the PS3™ system has changed for some PlayStation® and PlayStation®2 format titles. To check on the latest status, visit the search site for compatible titles." - PlayStation 3 system update page

From what I can see, there's nothing overly harmful there this time around, though I really wish the search site for PlayStation 3 backwards compatibility issues was a bit more concise. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm hoping the parts regarding output resolutions mean you can now select different default resolutions for different system functions.

The update can be obtained via direct download from the PlayStation 3 system update tab or via PC by downloading the update from the PlayStation 3 system software update page, copying it to a supported storage medium and then using that medium to copy the file to the PS3 hard drive and install from there.
