    Default PS3 Firmware 2.40

    It's about time. But it does look pretty sweet

    PlayStation Firmware 2.40 Preview - GameSpot Hardware Blog - Hardware Insider

    In-Game XMB

    * In-Game XMB displays everything that's in the XMB, some functions (playing a video, slideshow, voice chat, etc.) require the you to exit the In Game XMB and use the regular XMB
    * Custom Soundtracks for supported games (released games must be patched to support the feature)
    * Music player controls for Custom Soundtracks
    * Full access to the Friend List/Inbox
    * Access to the Accessory Settings
    * Ability to launch into a different game while playing a game
    * Runs as smooth as the regular XMB
    * The old PS button menu (Controller Settings, Shut Off System/Controller) can be accessed by holding the PS button for a couple of seconds instead of tapping the button.


    Trophies

    * 4 Trophy types: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum
    * Bronze trophies are the easiest to get, Silver is harder to get, Gold is the hardest, Platinum is only awarded when you have obtained all the other trophies in a game
    * Each user will have a PSN "Profile" that keeps track of your trophies
    * Each trophy type has a different value that goes towards your Profile's gamer "level" (Bronze adds less points than Silver, Silver adds less points than Gold, Platinum adds a significant amount of points towards reaching the next gamer level)
    * All games will have restrictions on how many trophies they can offer (small scale games will offer less trophies than large scale games) and some games will have restrictions on what type of trophies they can offer (no Platinum Trophies in small scale games)
    * Trophies can be viewed in the XMB
    * Trophies can be locked by the developer just like Secret Achievements
    * Trophies can be compared to friends trophies via the XMB
    * Games will need to be patched to support Trophies (SSHD will have a patch hours after 2.4 is released)
    * Games will not award Trophies retroactively based on saved data


    Misc.
    * Google Search added to XMB
    * Music player controls added to XMB
    * Date & Clock added to XMB
    Hmm people are reportedly having issues with the patch.

    The PlayStation forums are scattered with various reports of bricked PS3s—users report that upon booting their system, the SIXAXIS controller will not sync and the video signal is blank with no sound

    Hmm when I try to download I get the message I've updated to the most recent one. But I'm pretty sure I downloaded 2.39. Weird.


    Edit: Apparently Sony removed the update for re-patching as soon as they find the problem.

    I had that same problem. After the download finished I was hesitant to install it from fear of a problem so I cancelled the installation and now It says I have the most recent firmware(2.36) I think.

    Yeah, I heard it was coming out this week...I think Wednesday, so I was wondering when the hell it was coming out after I didn't get a message on the screen saying I needed to update. Thanks for posting that.

    Damn, custom soundtracks? Badass!
