The official PlayStation blog has posted a video walk through of the upcoming 2.40 firmware update, and they have answered and demonstrated most of the questions that have been floating round.
In short 2.40 will add an ingame XMB, ingame custom soundtracks, integrated messaging and universal friends list.
Yes I know some of that has always been here but it’s all integrated now and if you have been following my gripes you will know that I believe integration is everything here.
The trophy system is also mentioned but we are going to have to wait to see more of that.
All in all it looks fantastic and when it does get released it’s going to bite a large chunk out of Xbox Live’s advantageâ€¦ Microsoft better be paying attention and making a plan of how to stay ahead otherwise they are going to get steam rolled.
