Firmware (v2.36) coming soon, (v2.40) to include trophies, in-game XMB

Eric Lempel's Avatar Posted by SVP, Marketing & PlayStation Network

A new PLAYSTATION 3 firmware update (v2.36) will be launching soon, improving system stability when playing select PlayStation format software titles. We’re also happy to officially report that the 2.40 system software update for PS3 will include “XMB” access in-game. The update will also include “trophies,” an exciting new feature that we’ll be providing more details on soon, as well as some other new enhancements. We’ve talked about some of this on the blog previously and know that many of you can’t wait to get your hands on these features. You can expect us to share all of the official details shortly.

Thanks for touching on this. We’ve been hearing lots of rumors, so it’s nice to finally hear you talk about this.

On behalf of the entire Playstation community, thank you.

Excellent. Thanks for the info. I’ve got a 60GB AU PS3 from launch and have been extremely happy with the updates and support. Now if only my TV, amp and car got free updates…?

What’s the point of 2.36. Why not just go directly to 2.40

Rendermonk said:

I have to say, I’ve been watching this blog for awhile now, and it’s good to see that Eric actually responds to the requests made here. So many forums are all hype and speculation with pointless opinions and rants. Really looking forward to “Firm” dates and the upcoming firmware release of 2.40. Thanks for making an official post Erin.

YES!!!! FINALLY!!!! Awesome! ….but how far away is 2.36? and how much farther away is 2.40….. We have to get one before the other… I guess the real anticipation will begin after 2.36… ( and now we wait…)

Confirmed at last! Thanks a lot.

Can’t wait to work this trophy system and in-game XMB.

Will all games support the trophy system?

Thank you, Official statements help squash rumors! Now I know you guys don’t like to give out official dates for firmware. “With it comes out when its ready policy” which i tottaly agree with. Just… can we expect it by the end of june?

Finally, people can finally stop complaining in every single post about it.

But watch the people that were complaining for so long about it will start to praise Sony saying they are the best and so on…

Got to love the internet…

Anyway, thanks for the heads up.

June 17th, 3:13 pm

THANK YOU ERIC!! See, this is what I wanted to hear. Progress. Excellent news! The only remaining question is when is 2.4 actually going to hit. Just give us a general timeframe, Eric. 2 weeks? A month? 2 months? Come on, man; ballpark me.

Dorian_D said:

June 17th, 3:13 pm

Fersis said:

1- a truly great update

TheApprentice said:

THANK YOU SONY FOR CONFIRMING THE SPECULATED!!!

WOOO!

VenomX said:

I love you Sony

Carl said:

June 17th, 3:16 pm

@iorkara

Because it isn’t ready? We’ve all seen leaks, but maybe Sony doesn’t think it is up to standard, or found some bugs

mdd34 said:

June 17th, 3:17 pm

Wow, that’s the only complaint I’ve had about the PS3. Give us in-game XMB and we’ll be set.

sampenno said:

June 17th, 3:17 pm

OMG its real can we have the details and a video as early as possible please :)

xplosneer said:

June 17th, 3:17 pm

Confirmation is a blessing Sony!!! Thanks so much. I’m not gonna ask when, It’ll be a surprise. :)

gamesblow said:

June 17th, 3:17 pm

I could care less about in game xmb, other than me wanting to access my display settings for 1080p games. Keep your xmb, Sony. I want games to use it with. You keep cutting them all, though.

Less time on ps2, psp and Singstar and copying motion control tech from Craptendo and more time doing what you should’ve done in the offset. Make sure the ps3 had the games to back up your claims.

Nuff said.

DankandSticky said:

June 17th, 3:18 pm

So it is guaranteed… Jeff could you please tell us whether 2.36 is coming this week…

and obviously were all just salivating at when it will really happen… im more excited for trophies i think…

TheApprentice said:

June 17th, 3:18 pm

Wait…

Why does 2.36 have to come first :( :( :(

Just release 2.4 :(
