According to Sony’s PSN operations director Eric Lempel, Firmware update 3.0 might be the last major update for 2009 for the PS3.
Lempel told G4TV:
“This is a big and significant update, so you would be correct to assume that it’s the last major update for 2009” . “We try to release updates a few times a year and try to put as much as we can in them and depending on the different schedules and what we have ready at a certain moment, it may or may not make it into an update,” he said.
“We do want to continue to evolve the PS3, continue to go along our road map but also listen to what the users are saying and making the necessary enhancements to make their experience better.”
