It was announced last month that Panasonic will be the first Blu-Ray player to come equipped with the BD Live feature, and it seems the PS3 will follow suit. According to DVD Town, Sony has announced that its PlayStation 3 gaming console will receive a firmware update for BD Live early this summer.

The company said that the update will be made available when the BD Live stand-alone players hit the market. The first player to be BD Live-compatible, Panasonic's DMP-BD50, is said to hit the shelves in late May or early June.

The BD Live feature will enable users to download content from the Internet or allow users to play interactive games with other users via the service.
