PS3 Firmware Update v2.41 brings new look for Platinum Trophy

100°
315w ago - It appears that today's PS3 Firmware Update v2.41 has brought along with it a new sporty-looking Platinum trophy.

While Platinum trophies used to look like a bizarre purple crown, the new version (pictured below) looks more like a sports trophy made of crystal.

To quote from Radiskull's comment HERE below:

"I've noticed 2 things with this 2.41 so far. The in-game XMB lag seems to be gone (at least for me), and the Platinum Trophy icon on the trophies page has a new look. It was previously a crown, and now it looks like a globe. Pic of it below."

315w ago - Sony has finally issued an official statement regarding the launch of PS3 Firmware v2.41 and the release of v2.40. Courtesy of Sony's "unoffical" blog Three Speech it states:

For those users who have updated to version 2.40 and have experienced the problem that XMB™(XrossMediaBar) is not appearing, or no images are displaying on the screen, please contact Customer Service.

We have confirmed that for those users who have successfully updated to the version 2.40 and are able to activate the PS3 system, this problem will not occur on your PS3.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you and appreciate your understanding and continued support."

315w ago - To quote from Eric Lempel (Director, PlayStation Network Operations) via the PlayStation Blog yesterday: As many of you know, we released PS3 Firmware update v2.40 last week, but had to take it offline temporarily because, for a limited number of users, the XMB wouldn't display after the update was installed. We've been able to fix the problem, and I'm happy to report that Firmware Update v2.41 will be released shortly.

That being said, those interested can grab PS3 Firmware v2.41 below!

More soon, when official word is available on a changelog. However, it's presumed this is a minor update, simply fixing an issue in 2.40 that prevented the XMB from displaying properly after installing on a limited number of PS3 consoles.

315w ago - SCEE has just said that it can't firm up reports that a PS3 Firmware 2.41 release is to be made this week, but fell short of issuing a denial.

"I saw them," said a rep when asked if Sony was aware of the rumours. "I can't confirm anything at the moment, though."

We were also told that it's unknown as yet when an official statement will be made on the status of Firmware 2.40/1, but PR is waiting to hear back on the matter.

CVG reported this morning that Sony customer service is telling callers that a Firmware 2.41 update if to be issued to PS3 users this week.

The news comes in the wake of the pulling of Firmware 2.40 last week, after numerous users complained of system lock-ups.
