Sony has today revealed that Firmware 3.0 for PlayStation 3 will be rolled out on September 1, 2009.

According to the chaps at CVG, this latest update adds a plethroa of features, among which include animated XMB themes (one such example was illustrated during Sony's GamesCom press conference earlier today, which had LittleBigPlanet's SackBoy running around a globe behind the PS3's menu items)

In addition, Firmware 3.0 also adds a 'Whats New' section, BBC iPlayer, along with various "other great interface changes." That's all the info we have available at present, though we hope to bring you more on the update later this week.

Stay tuned.
