August 25, 2009 // 3:11 pm - Sony will release the PS3 Firmware 3.0 update on September 1st for the PlayStation 3 console.

Firmware 3.0 completely revamps the information board, introduces premium avatars and animated themes and a variety of other tweaks.

While Firmware 3.0 is the last major update the PlayStation 3 will see during 2009, G4TV (linked above) recently asked Sony if this was the last update period for the calendar year.

To quote: "This is a big and significant update, so you would be correct to assume that [it's the last major update for 2009]," said PlayStation Network operations director Eric Lempel to G4TV.

He did, however, note that the release of a few smaller updates throughout the remainder of 2009 is still a possibility.
