The UK's semi-official PlayStation blog, ThreeSpeech
, has published a Sony Computer Entertainment Europe press release on PS3 firmware 2.5 and PSP firmware 5.0, which includes the line: "Both system software updates will be released on 15th October." Hey, that's ... tomorrow!
The Oct. 15 date is also backed up by a post on SCEE's official forums
from one of its community leads. All indications point towards tomorrow being the day both platforms will get tricked out with the new features we posted about yesterday
, plus a couple of surprises – most notably Flash 9 support for the PS3's web browser. We've dropped SCEA a line for confirmation on a North American rollout of the firmware tomorrow.
