Rumor: PS3 Firmware 2.5 Hits Next Week, Along With PSP 5.0

Update: SCEJ just confirmed that PSP firmware 5.0 is scheduled to hit next week.

German site Elhabib is reporting that a “very reliable source” has told them that a new PlayStation 3 firmware update is due out by next week — 2.50. Additionally, the same source informed them that firmware 5.0 for PSP will drop during the same week and as previously speculated, will bring direct access to the currently PC-only PSP Store.

Firmware 2.5 coming out next week does seem likely, especially when you consider that Sony is releasing its official PS3 Bluetooth headset next week, which likely needs a new firmware for certain functions. That and PSP firmware is usually released around the same time as PS3 updates.
