Rumor: In-game XMB features have been revealed


We still don't know when we'll get our dual-shocked mitts on PS3 firmware 2.40, but, if a recent post from CVG is to be believed, we now know what you'll be able to do through the sexy new in-game XMB. The features, which they say came from a super-secret inside source, include:
  • View, send, receive messages
  • Manage downloads
  • Set the vibration feature of the controller
  • Manage Bluetooth devices
  • Use the voice changer
...and several others that we've put after the break. Assuming the list is legit, what do you think? Is this the in-game functionality you've been pining for?
