Upgradeable? Firmware?
« on: December 21, 2009, 09:51:32 AM »
I saw a product comparison on Remote Shoppe (USA Authorized Reseller) that said the PS3IRX1 is "Upgradeable".  What does this mean?  Firmware?

I really like the form factor of the IRX1.  I'm just concerned about upgrades that would be needed due to Sony firmware updates.

The firmware on the PS3IRX1 is not user-upgradeable. It uses the USB codes that Sony uses for the commands available through the controller via USB. The only way the PS3IRX1 would break would be if Sony changed those codes. But then their controller would not work either, along with a host of other PS3 accessories. I think the possibility of that happening is very small.
