Firmware 1.7 for PS3 released
Firmware 1.7 enables the console to play original PS1 software bought from the PlayStation Store which was previously only playable on the PSP. Saved data from the PS1 can now also be used on the PSP. Also new, is the enabling of vibration force feedback when using PlayStation and PlayStation 2 accessories with the older generation games.
Other evidence of the return of rumble can be seen in the recent update to Gran Turismo HD, a free download for PlayStation 3 owners via the PlayStation Store. Version 1.20 of the concept game features support for force feedback steering wheels ? something that hard core GT fans have long missed until the recent update.
