System software updates for PS3 are reported to be coming out tomorrow 

PS3 firmware update v2.60 is designed primarily to give a boost to the system’s media capabilities.One of the key feature from the update is the new Photo Gallery Application. This application delivers a suite of tools for sorting and displaying your photo collection.Photos can be organized in groups based on various criterias including the camera used to take the photos, the event date and time, colors in the photos, as well as the number, ages, or facial expressions of the people pictured.The Photo Gallery application will need to be installed separately from the XMB after you update your PS3’s firmware. To install the Photo Gallery application, go to the Photo section on the XMB, select Photo Gallery and press the X button

The 2.60 update also includes:

  • Guest access to PlayStation Store – This enables non-PlayStation Network members to browse through the storefront to check out the latest games, demos, videos, etc.
  • DivX 3.11 support – Videos in this format can now be played on PS3.

Here’s a video walk-through of firmware 2.60 that shows off some of what the Photo Gallery can do.
