    ps3 2.40 firmware set for Wednesday

    via Computer and Video Games


    Sony has confirmed that July 2, 2008 will see the 2.40 update go live.

    Of the update Sony says, "Firstly, the 2.40 enhancement allows XMB (XrossMediaBar) access in-game. This means that you can access the PS3 menu at any time while playing most games, simply by tapping the PlayStation button on your controller.

    "With 2.40, you can check if any of your friends are online (thanks to their own user profile), read and send messages, change some settings for games, all without having to quit the game you are playing. While you can't pause an online multiplayer game involving other people, you can rejoin play at any time when you've finished browsing. Along with these enhanced communications features, the Friends list capacity will double to 100 Friends."

    2.40 also delivers trophies to "recognise players' achievements in the online arena. Other competitive activities recognise winners with trophies - so why not gaming on PS3? Many online games will have gold, silver and bronze trophies - with platinum available for those who snag all three - all displayed on the XMB for everyone to see."

    We exclusively revealed the full feature set last week. And while our source was a little out on the date, sooner is better than later, eh?

    Official shots have also been released. But you may have already seen them this morning.

    As much as we need more of those, I'd much rather have in-game-XMB.

    Will the in-game music player include playing from external media?

    That would be useful to me seeing as I only listen to my music from my iPod in Disc Mode (I used rockbox) or from my external HDD.

    What do u mean more format options? as in say u could choose to format music or video? or have more partioning on the Other OS? I don`t think its really that relevent, seeing as u could delete music or video if u had em in one folder then delete, but yeah! maybe formatting will be quiker
