A supposed Sony employee has leaked new details for the much-anticipated 2.4 firmware update for PS3.

As well as the expected in-game messaging and trophy features, the in-game XMB (Xross Media Bar) access is also said to allow you to play music during gameplay - a much-requested feature already supported by Xbox 360.

The GameFAQS poster, going by the alias Knight613 (claiming to work in R&D at Sony's Foster City branch) also says that, although you'll only have access to a limited number of the XMB's features while a game is running, you will also be able to set up Bluetooth devices, so getting your wireless headset set up won't require you to quit out. In addition, they say that it'll be released some time next week.

A picture of the new trophy screen was also posted, and to prove he isn't just a spotted teenager with a taste for lies, Knight613 also posted a snap of his office pass. That settles it, then. You're fired!

Of course Sony isn't commenting on any of it, leaving us to guess instead.

On a side note, Sony warns that the PSN will be down today from 8am to 2pm pacific time (4pm to 12am GMT) for "scheduled maintenance". That means no access to the PS Store, and no online gaming.

Could this be related to the looming firmware update? Let's hope so.

The MGS4 one? I have it atm, got it a few days ago (tho you posted this a bit ago so might have gotten it since). Just in case not, just click on new releases and look for it. Tho atm the store is down like the above post from AJ mentioned so I can't check exactly where it is, but it is there.

Exclusive: Firmware 2.4's XMB features revealed
Wednesday 25-Jun-2008 12:00 PM View, send, receive messages, manage downloads and play music in-game. It's all here...
5 Comments

CVG has managed to get its grubby hands on the final list of features for the hotly anticipated Firmware 2.4 update, which was yesterday rumoured to be due early next week. But that's not the case we've been told...

Speaking under strict conditions of anonymity, a source has told CVG that Firmware 2.4 is expected to launch in around three weeks' time. A quick look at the diary reveals that E3 is just under three weeks away. It doesn't take a genius to see that Sony's pre-E3 conference would be the perfect time to launch the Sony XMB assault.

Announcing something and making it available at the same time is the way forward, as Microsoft proved by revealing Doom isn't just coming to Xbox Live Arcade, it's on Xbox Live Arcade a few E3s ago. Apple is known for this approach too.

We've also scooped the following list of XMB features that you'll be able to access in-game. Here goes:

• Friend category
• View, send, receive messages
• Manage downloads
• Set the vibration feature of the controller
• Sign in to PlayStation Network
• Register friends
• Manage Bluetooth devices
• Terminate the game
• Music category
• Use the system BGM
• Work the system BGM operation panel
• Settings category
• Assign controllers
• View profiles
• Game category
• Set audio devices
• Use the voice changer

As previously reported the update will also allow you to play back your own tunes in-game from the XMB Music column. It's unclear whether this feature will be compatible with all games or just new titles created with more recent development tools.

The system BGM will offer functions such as Play, Stop, Previous track, Next track, Change repeat mode, Change shuffle mode, Change volume (five levels). When you stop the playback of your tunes, playback of the game music will then begin.

Sony has yet to confirm or deny any of this and won't comment on rumour and speculation. If you ask us though, this is bang on the money. Not long to wait and see...

Yeah, but what I think this means is that when you press the PS button, the menu we get now will be gone and we'll go straight into the XMB.

You have to earn all your trophies again, you can't get them straight away. The problem here being of course this probably means I'll have to do the Big Boss emblem AGAIN.

Right, I'm thinking aloud, so I just wanna go through my PS3 collection and think if they'll put trophies up for them...

Resistance - Insomniac have already said no, which I think is really sucky. This is one of the flagship games on PSP and should be showing this sort of thing off, and I need a reason to go back and play Resistance.

F.E.A.R. - Everything about the port screamed "lazy" so again I doubt it.

Call of Duty 4 - We'll probably get them here, I mean I don't need an excuse to go back and play single player on this, but now I've got one.

Rainbow Six Vegas - Again, an inferior port might mean the devs arn't bothered about this, which is a shame as I think every dev should be putting in the effort to do this, it can't take long.

MGS4 - I'd say it pretty much has to, which is great, but working for that BB emblem again is going to be moider.

Guitar Hero 3 - Can't be hard to impliment, just one of those games I'd never be able to get all trophies on though.

Oblivion - I REALLY hope they put them into Oblivion, cause I love the game but I can often find myself wondering without direction.

Unreal Tournament 3 - I'd hope so, but Epic are probably too up themselves to bother. Prove me wrong Epic, please.

Condemned 2 - Fairly recent, and if these people are hard at work on Condemned 3, I see no reason why they can't take 5 minutes out to do the trophies.

Ratchet and Clank - If Insomniac arn't bothering with Resistance, they might not bother with this. That'd make me very sad.

Uncharted - Do it Naughty Dog! Do it or I WILL BREAK YOU!

You too, MotorStorm people.

You know I really don't care about ''bragging rights" or ''trophies" or ''achievements". I think it's one of the stupidest things of the online surge in gaming.

A supposed confirmation for........THIS WEDNESDAY!

Quote:
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."

Advertisement:


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.
