Tipsters pour in with PS3 Trophy Screens and In-game XMB info

Tipsters pour in with PS3 Trophy Screens and In-game XMB info 200°
349w ago - From PS3FanBoy, linked above: A short while ago a tipster leaked a PS3 trophy screen, while the validity of it was doubted, another tipster came into the frame to say what was posted is indeed real.

He sent along a new picture of one of the other pages too which are called gamer card and compare, and your gamer card will feature a trophy total and level.

To quote: Another tipster, calling himself "Gassy Snake," claims that he is a game developer who can vouch for The Patriots. He claims that the above image is real and, to prove it, proceeded to send us a picture of one of the other pages. These pages are called "gamer card" and "compare."

As you can see below, your gamer card will feature a trophy total and a "level." How you progress up these levels is anyone's guess, but there also seems to be some room for extra information of some kind.

Official Confirmation: PS3 Firmware 2.36 coming soon; 2.40 to offer In-game XMB and Trophies 250°
350w ago - After weeks of rumored PS3 Firmware 2.40 coming and the recently rumored intermediate 2.36 update, today we finally have official confirmation straight from Eric Lempel (Director, PlayStation Network Operations) as follows:

A new PLAYSTATION 3 firmware update (v2.36) will be launching soon, improving system stability when playing select PlayStation format software titles.

We're also happy to officially report that the 2.40 system software update for PS3 will include "XMB" access in-game. The update will also include "trophies," an exciting new feature that we'll be providing more details on soon, as well as some other new enhancements.

We've talked about some of this on the blog previously and know that many of you can't wait to get your hands on these features. You can expect us to share all of the official details shortly.
 

Video: A Peek At PS3 TEST Firmware 2.40!

Video: A Peek At PS3 TEST Firmware 2.40! 50°
351w ago - The retail counterpart is rumored to be released during mid to late June, however, recently we had a chance to check out PS3 Debug/TEST Firmware v2.40 (116 MB - 122,268,311 bytes).

Below is a video of it in action, displaying some of the new features. As expected, we can confirm from 2.40 onwards, the system software can be called any time during the gameplay. It appears the in-game XMB does not work while playing PS2 titles, probably the same with PS1 titles as well although we didn't have a PS1 game handy to try.

The video is slightly better quality than the previous PS3 TEST SD Launcher 1.00 Video as video capture was used this time instead of our old camera... as there is no need to view the TEST PS3 in the video this round.

Anyway, more soon... enjoy the video!

352w ago - According to reports, a member of NeoGAF who goes by dabookerman has already managed to get his hands on MGS4: Guns of Patriots, and has posted up a video of the XMB load screen when the game is put into the PS3 system.

The video is short, and just gives a quick glimpse at the wallpaper and music provided when the game is running on the PS3.

It's safe to watch as there are certainly no spoilers contained within... video below!

353w ago - German user Medran has shared some mobile phone pictures and videos of the PS3 In-Game XMB in action via Aeond on YouTube.

The first one shows the In-Game XMB being used from a game title screen, and the second video demonstrates it being used during gameplay.

He has also shared some pictures of trophies to further cement the recent In-game XMB, Trophies, In-Game Soundtrack coming in June news.

The videos and pictures were taken from PS3 Test kits with the 2.4 release of the Dev Firmware, given to videogame developers in order to ensure that there are actually trophies available upon release, and that everything is working.
