: Paddy: Recently we had the good fortune of being added to Sony's mailing list for all first party titles. With all the speculative posts regarding the upcoming Firmware I just decided to chance my arm and send an email to my contact at Sony Ireland on Friday. That was the reply I got.
However she did inform me that the official announcement would be Monday, but as you can see there wasn't one. I do believe its coming today. It is a genuine post and not an April Fools joke.
According to "Paddy", Administrator of Gamexbox.ie
, the new PS3 Firmware 2.70 is going to be released on the 2nd of April 2009.
To quote: With mounting speculation as to exactly when PS3 firmware version 2.70 will be released we can now reveal to you that our sources at Sony Ireland have given us a confirmation date.
April 2nd Will be the date that every PS3 gamer will now be looking forward to. Stay tuned for more as the official Announcement and images is made on Monday 30th March.
