The PlayStation 3 will be getting a firmware update soon, bringing the system software version to v2.53. The minor update will support for full screen flash content. According to several websites the update was supposed to be released on November 26th, but so far the update is no where to be found. We speculate that Sony may have found a bug (or two) just before public release. Sony has not made a official announcement regarding the update but we can expect one close to the release date.
Some websites claim that the update was announced on the US PlayStation 3 Website but we have failed to find any such announcement. The announcement could have been on the website but pulled after delays in releasing the update. For now, keep a look out for an official announcement.
