PS3 Firmware 2.8 Released

Version 2.8 of the PS3 firmware was released today. Nothing major in this update, according to the Official Playstation Blog, the playback quality of some Playstation 3 format software has been improved. Whether or not any ground work has been added in the background for a major future update remains to be seen but as the numbering scheme implies, this is a minor update and until we get to a major revision number (like 3.0) we shouldn’t expect too much. This doesn’t appear to be a mandatory update.
