Sony has confirmed that the next software update for the PlayStation 3 will add support for interactive Blu-ray Live features.
The update is scheduled for release in late March and will enable PS3 owners to experience interactive features such as downloadable video content, ring-tones and games.
Software update v. 2.20 will enable photo and music playlists on PS3 to be copied to PlayStation Portable systems, among other new features.
"With Blu-ray established as the high-definition optical disc standard, more consumers are ready to jump in and take advantage of everything the format offers," said Scott A. Steinberg, vice president of product marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America.
Blu-ray Live requires an internet connection and at least 1GB of local storage.
