Eurogamer’s just posted a story based on two different dev sources that says PS3 Firmware 2.70 will launch in April, not this week as we were told last night.

Sony’s made no official statement on the matter as yet.

We were told that developers now have the update and it would launch “this week”.

Resistance 2 developer James Stevenson said overnight that his shooter’s latest patch wouldn’t work without the Firmware release. The patch was supposed to hit on March 26, tomorrow.

There’s no clear indication as to what the update contains as yet, but Stevenson said dual PSN log-ins was the feature needed for the Resistance 2 patch.
