Get more from online gaming on PLAYSTATION3 with the Free 2.40 Firmware enhancement

PS3™ to give online gamers the features they've been requesting: XMB™ (XrossMediaBar) access in-game and trophies available in this free, automatic system upgrade

June 30, 2008: Sony Computer Entertainment Europe today announced new online gaming functionality for PLAYSTATION3 (PS3™), which will become available on July 2, 2008 with the 2.40 enhancement, an automatic firmware upgrade that delivers several of the features most requested by gamers. Combined with PLAYSTATIONNetwork's unique service of free* online gaming, the enhancement makes PS3 an even more attractive platform of choice for the online gamer.

Firstly, the 2.40 enhancement allows XMB™ (XrossMediaBar) access in-game. This means that you can access the PS3 menu at any time while playing most games, simply by tapping the PlayStation button on your controller. With 2.40, you can check if any of your friends are online (thanks to their own user profile), read and send messages, change some settings for games, all without having to quit the game...
 

PES 2008 Online Maintenance Scheduled for July 7th

50°
339w ago - Just a heads up for the few of you that still play Konami's laggy mess that is PES 2008 online, an "emergency maintenance" has been scheduled on July the 7th.

There are hopes that the maintenance will finally fix the crippling lag experienced when playing online.

I personally doubt they would try to improve the online performance while they are right in the middle of development for PES 2009, but it would be a pleasant surprise.

Guess we'll know for sure soon enough!
