FW 2.1 Next Week?

It’s that time of the month again, and rumours are bubbling about the next PS3 firmware, which we reckon will include DivX playback and update the PS3’s Blu-ray player to 1.1 specification. The evidence pointing to this is scatty, sure, but we’ve had numerous hints that the next PSP update is due for the middle of December and as we all know PS3 and PSP updates normally happen quite close together these days. Rumours also suggest the DivX playback update is going to happen pretty soon, so we’re going out on (another) limb and are marrying the two together.
