Earlier today PlayStation Network Operations Director Eric Lempel announced that PS3 Firmware 2.80 Update was coming, and it's now live to download!
Here is what he had to say about it, to quote:
Hello, I just wanted to provide everyone with a head's up that the next PLAYSTATION 3 system software update (v2.80) will be coming soon. The playback quality of some PLAYSTATION 3 format software has been improved.

All the security will bite sony in the arse soon enough when ppl realize the console isn't theirs. I've felt the urge to buy a 360 for a while now. Mandatory firmware updates just seems stupid for real and i havent turned on my ps3 since i saw this because i cant bother with the prompt and not being able to go online when i don't want to upgrade.
Alright, I updates this damn thing, what do I win... a bricked PS3, I for sure will sue those bastards if that ever happens, damn mandating an update.
I am worried about that EVERY time I update.... I paid alot for my irreplacable 60gb model and I dont want to lose it cuz $ony got its panties in a wad over ORP.... whatever. It had better contain something better than "system integrity enhancement" or whatever they call it.
