Sony has just confirmed that PlayStation 3 firmware update v2.40 will finally add in-game XMB and trophy support -- but we'll have to wait for update v2.36 first.

While the feature has been more or less confirmed for firmware version 2.40, it's still interesting to see these videos quickly crop ...

You have to love SCEE, they're always good for a great quote or, as is the case today, a delectable nugget of information. While Ray Maguire, chief of the UK division of Sony Computer Entertainment, was bragging on the PS3 to MCV, he said, "Our momentum will continue with the introduction of in-ga...

Aren't rumors exciting? They serve to raise your expectations, then dash them when you discover it was all a ruse some chump thought up in a fit of boredom.

SCEA just updated their Flickr page (aren't they so web savvy these days?) with an intriguing image: shirts that proudly display the phrase "in-shirt XMB." Apparently, Sony's picked up a sense of humor these days. We can only read this either one of two ways: ZOMG, in-game XMB confirmed!!!1 ...
