The feature that we have all been waiting for is nearly here, and about time to.
The Internet has exploded with rumours that firmware ver 2.40 is going to include the functionality of in-game XMB however that doesn’t mean it will work for all the games from the get go.
This firmware version hasn’t been sent to the developers yet and obviously games that are already out don’t have the functionality to plug into the XMB so they won’t work for cross game invites… However the universal messaging system will more than likely work straight away..
No date has been set for the release but June 12th makes sense to me….
Oh and apparently trophies are also included which is going to be an awesome addition… in-game XMB is still the bigger story though.
There are two video’s posted on the local PS3 forums that I can’t seem to embed for some arb reason, you can see them here PS3 Forums
