PostSubject: Firmware 2.40   Sun Jun 01, 2008 2:06 pm

Videogaming247 has learnt that the upcoming in-game XMB - heavily rumoured to be included in PS3ís Firmware 2.40 - may not work with all PS3 titles, and that user-music and Trophies functionality is only being included as an option for Sony developers from this point on.

By point:

* Sonyís currently going through PS3ís library to check whether or not in-game XMBís full compatible. While itís expected that the the new menu system, in-game messaging, and so forth, will work with virtually all games, for a minority of titles the current black menu screen will be retained. Itís not known yet which games, if any, wonít be able to use in-game XMB.

* The user-music functionality is only included in the new development tools, which have now gone out to coders. This means that existing games wonít support it unless theyíre patched. Thatís right: you wonít be able to play GTA IV with your own music unless Rockstar updates the game, if what weíve been told this morning is true.

* Same for Trophies. They tools required to add these are only just in the hands of developers, which means itís going to be some time before you see the feature appear in a major game.

* Some aspects of the XMB, such as the photo viewer, wonít be available in-game after the 2.40 Firmware update. If you select these features in-game, youíll be asked if you want to drop out of your game to access them.


Thereís still no release date for Firmware 2.40 as yet, with Sony sticking to ďsummerĒ for now. Weíll have more soon, hopefully.

Also another little thing that they fixed in this update was an Auto Aim Robot made for COD4 which they have now got rid of!
