Default 2.40 firmware

Official: Trophies, in-game XMB in firmware 2.40

Sony details major PS3 update. Also, 2.36 out today

Words: Mike Jackson, CVG UK




After what seems like years of rumour and speculation, Sony has finally spoken about the next major PS3 firmware update. You know, the one every PS3 owner has been waiting for since they bought the console.
We all knew that firmware version 2.40 would deliver that "in-game XMB access" we've all been gagging for, so messaging and other options can be done without having to quit your game.
But Sony has also confirmed that the update will include trophies, as well as some other new enhancements. Trophies are thought to be the PS3's answer to 360's Achievements system, but Sony is yet to give specific details.
And while all this is good news, Sony hasn't revealed a time frame for the firmware's release, which was strongly rumoured to hit consoles this month. "You can expect us to share all of the official details shortly," it said.
Meanwhile, turn your PS3 on today and you'll be prompted to install a not-so-exciting firmware 2.36, which improves "system stability when playing select PlayStation format software titles". Every little bit helps...

Thanks for the info Click.

Nice timing as my XBOX live subscription just became due and I was debating wether to subscribe again. As the limited time I have to play consoles these days has been spent on the PS3 anyway I think I will let it laps.

Smartest decission you ever made mate.

Why pay for something on one system if you can get it for free on another system.

Can't argue with that.

Is that why they call you the Ancient one?

That would have been 2.36.

2.40 is out close to July 1st - 3rd.

I think 2.40 will release on the 1st July.
