Japanese and US PS3 owners cracking open their consoles on 11th and 17th November will have a firmware download to look forward to.Sony's released version 1.1 for immediate update to the still wet machines. It'll be required reading for compatibility with the PlayStation Network but there's an interesting sweetener in there too. Those who also update their PSPs to the latest firmware will be able to access content stored on the PS3 via Wi-Fi. Sony calls it ‘Remote Play’.The update should also see downloadable PSone games for the PSP (time to brush up on our Final Fantasy VII skills we think).But as one hand gives the other takes away. Sony's again refused to confirm a March launch date for us Europeans so we could be waiting even longer for the next gen console to reach our shores. Wii or Xbox 360 anyone?
