Looks interesting, but how do you know that 2.30 will be coming next Thursday? I'd love know where you found this out. Have they said what they'll be fixing/adding. I'm hoping they'll fix the Mp4 streaming issue (stuttering playback).
it has been announced that the new psn store is being released in firmware 2.30 on the 15th of april for everywhere other than europe (i think) we are getting it on the 17th so we have to wait a couple of days more.
they also said a surprise will be coming out along with the update. open home beta maybe? i dont really know though, just a thought.
it seems likely given the recent ability for some people to download v1.00 of home via proxy server so maybe its the final release (finally) although i have my doubts that sony would be that kind to release it yet most probably a beta
