    PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.0 Update is Now Released & Mandatory!

    Update: A full changelog is now available HERE!

    Ever since PS3 Firmware 3.0 was first announced at GamesCom 2009 excitement has been culminating for the update's release.

    Even Sony's Eric Lempel stated that it will indeed be the last major PS3 Firmware update of the year.

    Those wondering what changes PS3 Firmware 3.0 brings to the table can check out the details direct from Sony.

    Finally, for those who don't use the PS3 System Software Updater, you can now download the mandatory PS3 Firmware 3.0 update below for both the PS3 and PS3 Slim directly- cheers!

    No problem... for those unaware, the last update (2.80) still showed 2.76 on the updater so that is why it wasn't initially a mandatory update.

    Sadly, this one is required to go online with the PS3, PSN, Home, etc:
    Dest=84;ImageVersion=00008751;SystemSoftwareVersio n=3.0000;
    If someone who updates their non-Slim PS3 with it can check if the new Bootscreen is now in it that would be appreciated.

    Hrmm... why would people not use the System Update software to update the bios?

    Is there some sort of advantage or patching that I should be aware of before I download and apply this new bios?
