Sony releases a new update for the PS3 console, version 1.5. This new update improves the backwards compatibility of the PS3:
Those who have been experiencing less than optimal backwards compatibility with their PlayStation 3 consoles will be pleased to learn that Sony is addressing that very issue in the newest system update. After just two short months, PS3 firmware hits the half version mark with 1.5.
The most notable change, as detailed by PS3 Fanboy, is the improvement in the appearance and display of all PSone and PS2 games while being played on the PS3. Prior to this update, previous generation games played on the new console would look worse than when being played on the original platform. The suggested fix to the situation was simply to switch to composite cables and play the old games in their old interlaced formats. With the version 1.5 update, gamers can now finally enjoy old software without have to downgrade to old TV technology.
