Along with various other additions and improvements, Sony have announced that the new 2.50 Firmware for the Playstation 3 is going to add support for Flash 9.

Welcome to a world of Youtube, Flash games and tons of annoying adverts! But seriously, this is going to be a fantastic addition, especially with the fact that Sony has now officially launched a YouTube channel specifically for the PS3.

A list of additional improvements, after the jump.

* Pads and the PS3 itself now have tweakable power-save settings for turning off after a period of inactivity.

* You can tell the PS3 to power down once it’s finished downloading or installing content.

* In-game screenshots can be taken in compatible games.

* It enables high-quality mode for the official PS3 Bluetooth headset.

* The Trophy interface has been improved, so you can see you and your friends’ progress more easily.

* Friends now have their last login time listed.

* Videos now have a scene search feature.

* There’s a button on the PlayStation Store frontpage for redeeming codes.

  1. One thing this up date brought that has me over the moon is I can now stream DIVX files using Windows Media Connect(old stand alone streaming software). Before it just listed those files a unsupported data. I tried WMP11 but that used to just lock up my system.

    Anyway now I can put my PS3 in the lounge and use it to stream DIVXs thanks to the wireless.
