Firmware (v.2.40) Walkthrough Part 1: the XMB

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

Hi everyone! We know you’re all patiently waiting for the next PS3 firmware update, v2.40, which includes XMB access in-game and Trophy support. The good news is that it’s coming soon, and you can now see how accessing the XMB from in-game will work in this video demo.

Shortly, we’ll be posting another video here on the PlayStation.Blog that shows the Trophy feature in action for the first time. At that time we’ll provide even more details on how firmware v2.40 will enhance your PLAYSTATION 3 experience.

Sweet! I can’t wait to see the next video to see what the trophie system is like.

One question (that I’m sure has already been asked a hundred times) is there cross game chat? Messaging is awesome, but voice chat would put PSN almost on par with xbox live.

Amazing update,thank you Sony! One question though, so when you want to play your own music, you would have to turn off the game’s music correct? Well this is so cool I can’t wait and now I’m hoping that it will come this week! :)

No I don’t think you have to turn it off, its just that would you really want overlapping music?

It’s way better than I imagined. I’m glad I don’t have to quit a game to go to a downloaded game ( you know, hit quit game, wait, and then load the downloaded game). I noticed the Internet Browser was there as an option. Would we have to quit a game to use it?

Otega said:

It’s more of Custom Soundtrack instead of In-game Music because he said the sound is still on for pixel junk which isn’t just a layover of music but a true custom soundtrack.

in case no one cached on he said 2.4 sets the grounds for ingame music,not that it was included with this update.

Synthesize said:

June 30th, 12:22 am

They need to make it clear if we are able to voice-message/private chat and have a cross-game invitation system.

If they can add those as well, it would be a near perfect update!

prowlingfox said:

June 30th, 12:23 am

don’t worry. personal music while in-game is included.

DevilHunterDante said:

June 30th, 12:23 am

What would be sweet is if you could access the Media Server for music ; )

elorm9 said:

June 30th, 12:23 am

Finally, thanks for the update! Will we get gamer cards for the trophy thing?

Synthesize said:

June 30th, 12:23 am

@188

goroflack said:

June 30th, 12:24 am

@190
I think he meant that the possibility of developers to be able to skip and control the selection of tracks from the HD

DevilHunterDante said:

June 30th, 12:24 am

@188 Then We shall game in the dark

Aliarse said:
