Sony Playstation 3 Software Update 3.70

Sony has released a new update for Playstation 3 users today that adds some new functionality to the system and changes several of the application menus. The 3.70 update allows synchronization of game saves, stats, and trophies, allowing users to access their info from any Playstation 3. New menu features include a new “TV and Video Services” category, due to the increase in streaming services available. There are also some new Blu-Ray tweaks that improve DTS audio compatibility in 3D Blu-Rays.

PS3 Update Info

Sony gave this info on the update on their blog yesterday:

Due to the increase in video applications being offered on PS3, we are adding a new category on the XMB called TV/Video Services. This category will include video applications such as Netflix, Hulu PLUS, and VUDU.


  • You’ll be able to find and download all of the video applications available on PS3 directly from this new XMB category.
  • A folder labeled “My Channels” within this category will allow you to easily access your downloaded applications.
  • Any videos downloaded from the PlayStation store will continue to be placed in the existing Video category on the XMB

Two updates for all of you enjoying Blu-ray 3D movies on PS3:

  • 3D support will now be available when accessing Java-based special features on Blu-Ray
  • DTS-HD MA, DTS-HD HR decoding/bit stream output (or lossless audio) will be supported while playing Blu-ray 3D movies.
  • 3D digital photos in MPO format can now be viewed in 3D on the XMB and in the Photo Gallery app.
