PS3 1.6 firmware – Remote Play over internet added… or not?

The latest 1.6 firmware for the PS3 was rumored to include additional Remote Play support so you could browse your media collection (MP3s, photos etc) from across the internet on your PSP. If this feature was added it is not very obvious from the release notes for 1.6, although online discussions from various people claim it is working.

The description on the Sony site says the enhancement was to add Remote Play for 20GB versions, which do not include a WiFi access point, to be remote accessed via a WiFi access point on the same network. It does not state that you can now remote access your PS3 from any access point across the internet, although this is the feature people were expecting.

Hopefully in the next update…
