291w ago - 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 [Register or Login to view links] 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.

Looks like it is not coming out today. Hopefully it will be out tomorrow!

I can't help but remain skeptical of the rumors for "in-game web browser".

I having functionality for having two players signed in at the same time is going to be very nice to have . If I remember right in an interview with some developers from Sony a while back, they had expressed interest in having two players signed in at once, but said it would be challenging to do. Glad they could sort out the issues . Hopefully this new functionality will make it into every game that has online play in the future.

Still holding out hope for universal in-game XMB soundtracks though

Hard to believe nobody here managed to snag it before it was removed.. Most only got under 100% download of it sadly.
