All of the following information has come from an insider I, Sev1512, am in contact with and everything isn't 'set in stone'. Things can change a lot, especially when it involves Sony.
If any of the information is wrong, its because plans have changed and not because it was made up.
PS3 Firmware 2.40 should include:
- Access your XMB chat features from any game.
- 2D trophies from the XMB where 70% of current titles will support them straight away.
- Video Coding and groundwork for the Movie Store (Out Sept)
My insider notes however that not all of the above will definitely make it before Metal Gear Solid comes out.
Oh, and Online Co-op for Super Stardust HD is in the works.
