    Rumor: PS3 Firmware 2.80 Update is No Longer Optional?

    Sponsored Links
    I slapped the 'rumor' status on this one for now until others can confirm it... today TheSixthAxis.com (linked above) via [Register or Login to view links] are claiming that Sony finally pushed the button marked "obligatory" on PS3 Firmware Update 2.80.

    This comes after Sony's Director of Network Operations stated that with 2.8 it was an option to update as there wasn't any consumer-specific functionality.

    According to both the [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] Updaters, it still is showing only 2.76 is required to go online with the PS3, as follows:

    Dest=84;CompatibleSystemSoftwareVersion=2.7600-;
    Dest=85;CompatibleSystemSoftwareVersion=2.7600-;

    If anyone can confirm otherwise, feel free to do so in the comments below!

    Thanks and +Rep red8316.. not sure what these other sites are smoking, but let's hope they pass it to the left.

    In any case, it's good to hear a confirmation that Sony hasn't 'forced' the 2.8 update yet!

    I updated a while ago, made a huge difference for playing videos. Before I could not fast forward/rewind/resume HD videos on the HDD, now it works perfectly.
