So do some of y’all remember my gripe back when I got my black idol how I wish Sony would allow upscaling of DVDs? Well it seems the folks finally listened to my gripe (and about a million others but mine was the pivotal one) and activated the scaling hardware on the PS3 in the 1.80 firmware release. Also my beloved PSP will be able to access media from the PS3 any where around the world! I am free! They do love the PSP! I have been working on finishing God of War prior to purchasing GoW II. Now I will be able to enjoy them upscaled to 1080p on the big screen. Life is good again.
