Sony updates PS3 firmware to version 1.51...but why?

Sony has updated their PS3 firmware edition to 1.51, and requires the update the moment a user logs into the PlayStation Network. However, it doesn't really address any major issues (I'm not saying there are any), and it doesn't add functionality. When asked what 1.51 does compared to 1.5, Sony gave us a fine-worded answer.
Support for PLAYSTATION 3 format software titles has been expanded.
This probably has something to do with backwards compatibility, or allows future games to work.Source: 1Up

1.51 adds subliminal mind control to make users protagonists of the SONY agenda

It probably just plugs some hole that they found that allowed bootleg games to be played easier or something.
