by Rainier on Nov. 20, 2007 @ 4:07 a.m. PST

At the heart of PS3 is the Cell Broadband Engine, one of the most advanced computer processors in the world, that enables massive floating point calculation, and Blu-ray Disc (BD) drive, providing a High Definition (1080p) next-generation gaming and movie experience in the home, as well as up to 50 GB of data capacity.

The PS3 system software version 2.01 (with 2.00) update includes the following:

* New for 2.01: System stability during use of some PS3 format software has been improved.
* New for 2.01: System stability has been improved for some operations, including the use of the Internet browser and the information board (Information Board).
* New for 2.01: System stability during output of upscaled PS2 format software images has been improved.*1
* New for 2.01: Functionality of the [Remote Start] feature has been changed to prevent an unintentional remote start. *2

*1 Applies only to models that support playback of PlayStation®2 format software. > See details

*2 If [Remote Start via the Internet] is enabled, the PS3™ system may turn on unintentionally, depending on the type of router in use. (In this case a remote play connection cannot be established.) To avoid unintentional power-up of the system, [Remote Start via the Internet] may be disabled automatically if a remote play connection is not established within a certain amount of time after the system is turned on.
