The next PS3 firmware update (v3.70) is actually adding some features instead of being a simple security update.

The “Automatic Download” feature will get a name change to “Automatic Update”.
Playstation Plus Subscribers only, will get to automate some features. They can auto upload game save data and trophies.

Everyone will be able to send game recommendations from the PSN Store to folks in their friends list.

All the video applications are being moved under a new category in XMB called “TV/Video Services”. This is where you will find Netflix, Hulu Plus, Vudu and any other video service they add in the future. Any videos downloaded from the PlayStation store will continue to be placed in the existing “Video” category on the XMB

On Blu-Ray 3D support will be available when accessing Java-based special features. DTS-HD MA, DTS-HD HR decoding/bit stream output (or lossless audio) will be supported while playing Blu-ray 3D movies. 3D digital photos in MPO format can now be viewed in 3D on the XMB and in the Photo Gallery app.
