Official Confirmation: PS3 Firmware 2.36 coming soon; 2.40 to offer In-game XMB and Trophies

250°
341w 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.

341w ago - According to various reports, PS3 Firmware 2.36 is slated to hit within a week. One such report is from consoul of NeoGAF, linked above.

Much like the last few PSP updates, nothing too substantial will be added, aside from the usual security enhancements and compatibility fixes.

In case anyone missed it, a video of PS3 Firmware 2.40 in action is HERE.

Let's hope this is the last minor update before 2.40 hits.

Old But New News: PS3 Debug Firmware 2.30 Leaked!

300°
341w ago - This is a few days old, but since nobody submitted it here goes: Recently PS3 Debug Firmware Update v2.30 was posted on the Spanish Web site Elotrolado linked above.

The file size is 110 MB (115,403,104 bytes), and it is available from our PS3 Debug Firmware section or download it linked below, however, unless you own a PS3 Debug/TEST console the most it will allow you to do is use XVISTAMAN2005's Install Debug Firmware on a Retail PS3 method to browse the non-functional menus.

More to come, another resident PS3 Dev hinted he plans to share something he has been working on here shortly...
 

Video: A Peek At PS3 TEST Firmware 2.40!

50°
342w 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!
