Sony has announced an update for its BDP-S350 Blu-ray player to bring the player up to Profile 2.0 specification – all you need is an Internet connection... and a USB memory stick

The key component to the Profile 2.0 specification is compatibility with BD-Live. This gives you access to all manner of online and interactive content such as previews, special features, games and more.
