Sony announced firmware 1.80 for the PlayStation 3 will soon be available. This update will allow users to watch standard definition DVDs upscaled all the way to 1080p.
In addition, Playstation and PS2 games will also be marginally upscaled to provide better resolution when played on an HDTV via the PS3.

Additionally, the new firmware will expand the PSP's remote play option. Right now, users can access stored content on their PS3, like videos and music, on their PSP via a local wireless connection.

The 1.80 update makes the remote play option available through Wi-Fi, allowing users always-on access to their PS3 media from anywhere with an Internet connection.

The update will be available in Europe tomorrow, with North America to follow.
