The PS3 is due to launch in Europe and the rest of the world in March 2007, and according to the Sony Europe VP of Technology, Paul Holman, there will be a major firmware update released at the same time.
According to Holman there will be new major features and gaming capabilities added in the new firmware. Could it be that the ‘media center’ type functionality is coming? Remember the screen shots from Japan last year showing the PS3 displaying multiple HD outputs across the screen at the same time? Is the PS3 about to get Tivo like functionality?
