It was the old "Firmware 2.0 Rumor" before. Can't find a link though because its pretty old. Now that we're getting a update, i guess then we're pretty close with this 2.0 rumor.

Heaven_Or_Hell3716d ago

Well, it's not a "Major" firmware udpate, but Sony kept the PS3 firmware regulary updated.
I'm just waiting for the "Big" firwmare update like 2.0 with XMB game access, personal music on every game, allow users to choose their wallpaper.

P.S: Hey guys, I'm french and i just don't understand how can i submit news ^^ Can you help me please ?

Well you have to pass the Contributor test to be able to post news. If you look at the right side of the n4g page, you'll see "Site Features". Click on the "Test". It will help if you will read the "Guidelines, Tutorial, and Tips" pages first. If you're ready then you can take the test. You have to get a perfect score though, but its a piece of cake if you read first the 3 pages I stated.
