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.

Thanks for posting the news 51N15T3R and +Rep!

I wonder how long until 2.80 Debug leaks, considering it is already on the SCEA Press site.

It also appears they have put a damper on Open Remote Play according to PS3 Hacks:
Sony has also put a damper on Open Remote Play. Those tricky bastards have seemingly “poisoned” the video stream... If you start the ORP client and establish a Remote Play connection, you’ll notice the video quickly becomes garbled nonsense and eventually the client bails. The good news — you can still make the connection, meaning the authentication hasn’t changed any…

This is what Dashhacker had to say (basically the same thing):
As some of you may already know, Sony has blocked Open Remote Play as of PS3 firmware v2.80, June 24th. At this time, ORP will no longer work for longer than about 30 - 60 seconds. I've only looked at the problem for a few minutes but it seems that they've "poisoned" the video stream by some means rather than changing the keys or cryptography.

I'll study what they've done and patch FFmpeg within the next... week? month? Not too sure how long it'll be before I can undo Sony's greedy brain damage.
