CES 2008: Sony Confirms In-Game XMB Sometime in ’08

Sony’s gaming division might have a small showing at this year’s CES, but that isn’t keep Paul Purdy from dropping some big PS3 news: in-game Xross Media Bar (XMB) access is confirmed for 2008. When pressed for a specific timeframe, the Sony rep simply relayed that Sony’s focus at CES is on hardware.

For those not aware, the PS3’s operating system is unavailable while in games. This prevents the use of custom soundtracks or messenging while a game is active, and since the Xbox 360 offers its users both while in-game, PS3 owners have been justifiably frustrated.

This is really nothing new as they've already confirmed in game XMB. Its all been a matter of when it will actually be implemented. Most expected it by now, and 2.00 was the target that most thought it would be in, but it wasnt. Guess we'll have to wait and see
 
Son of a...

Garrr... WHEN!? :(

Oh well, at least "it's coming..."
 
I still think it will coincide with the release of Home.
 
I'm not gonna set myself up for disappointment. I'm predicting December 31.
