March 24, 2009 // 10:37 am - According to the folks over at TheSixthAxis (linked above), rumor has it Sony may make an announcement today on PS3 Firmware Update 2.70.

To quote: It's GDC 2009 over in California, and our ears are to the ground.

We've had to put up with the rumor mill grinding about Firmware 2.70 for a while now, but we've heard more recently gossip in and amongst our Twitter account overnight hinting that Sony are about to announce Firmware 2.70 for the PS3, and there appeared to be some maintenance on the network this morning, according to MGO's in-game notices.

Whether this will come to fruition or not we'll have to wait and see, but it has been a while since the last update; so whilst we're not expecting cross-game chat it would be nice to get something out of GDC.

Did anyone grab the 2.70 before Sony removed it from their servers today?

Perhaps they found a last-minute bug in it..

so far they're all rumors though. they didn't even say where they're hearing it from, just what they believe will happen.

I think (could be wrong) they mean announced as in Sony will confirm it's coming and detail the 2.7 features planned... versus actually releasing it today.

Some places are indeed reporting that it may be released Thursday though so we'll see.
