Sony released the 3.0 software update this week for the PS3 console. The update applies to users of the new PS3 Slim and the older PS3 models. The update added a bunch of new features including support for BBC iPlayer.

Previously the only way to watch the iPlayer on the console was with a workaround, but that is no longer needed now. The PlayStation Video store was also announced and will launch in November.

Other features include dynamic wallpapers, better navigation, and shortcuts to the PS Store. Bravia Sync was also added to allow Bravia TV owners to control the PS3 menus from the TV remote.
