This article is very interesting, I wasn't expecting an announcement on Firmware 3.0 quite this quick, in fact I was expecting the release of FW 3.0 to be later in the year towards Christmas. If this article is true then we can expect FW 3.0 to be coming in the next couple of weeks (possibly next week!). FW 2.9 could be skipped completely which is not entirely uncommon as Sony have skipped Firmware numbers before.
Here are the features I am half expecting to come in Firmware 3.0:
1. Cross game voice chat and video chat and game invites system
2. PS2 emulator for download
3. Launch of PS2 games on the PSN store
I hope Sony have managed to find a loophole around the custom soundtracks problem, but I think this is doubtful unfortunately. But you never know!
