288w ago - Shortly following the PlayStation 3 Slim Teardown from earlier today comes a video of the new PS3 Slim's bootscreen.

PS3 Firmware 3.0 to Be the Last Major Firmware Update of 2009

PS3 Firmware 3.0 to Be the Last Major Firmware Update of 2009 50°
288w ago - 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.
