XTREME PS3 have compiled a detailed list of all the XMB features you can access in-game using PS3 Firmware 2.40, complete with screenshots and video.
i have to say that the vibration and the controller assigned are pretty use less to use when you access the XMB just push and hold the dam button. But its and alright guide
i think its helpful like the man hiphopgamer said the xmb is dope http://n4g.com/industrynews...
I like this guide, will help a lot of people.
Poor Xbots Poor Xbots, Ultimate Firmware 2.40 In-Game XMB Guide, is just the beginning for the apocalypse for the XBL. Poor Xbots, when HOME releases, people will switch from waiting their fixme dvd player returning fom M$, to spending some sweet time in HOME. Poor Xbots
poor sonyfanboys claiming trophies are better but don't support older games. and a gimped firmware thats been taken down until further notices. yeah 2.40 is so much better.
Poor vega...rehashing the same arguments over and over again. Poor vega, claiming that he has a PS3 and yet he finds every single PS3 article to sh*t on. Poor vega...such a sad, sad little boy.
Vega are you stupid? How can you like my machine? Its just written fail all over it. Im going to beg on my knees and hope Sony want to employ me.
At least PS3 does support older games. 360 can't even play original Xbox's games.
ahh poor sonyfanboys. whats the matter you sound upset. it must really hurt your hearts to know that i own a ps3 and like the 360 way better. PSN is garbage but FREE. trophies is a joke because it's HALF-ASSED. the firmware is gimped. an the best part it took 2 years just to get a HALF-ASS wannbe copy of live to the market. wow sony you are the best at copying and implementing things half-ass. look at the sixaxis (copy of the wii-mote) how many games support this feature? only a handfull. sounds famillar? sure it does it the same thing they are doing with trophies.why just so sony can say.look we have motion-controls like the wii. and now we have trophies and some of the things MS offer with LIVE. sony's motto should be JACK OF ALL TRADES, MASTER OF NONE.
so pathetic when sony fanboys brag about a faulty update that is bricking PS3s and was pulled because of this. it must really suck to own a $500 hunk of crap that's online service is years behind the times and keeps trying to catch up. the lag on PSN is a joke. i've watched it firsthand. I will never, ever buy a ps3. I have a friend who has one and I feel bad for him. i wonder if PS3 fanboys even know or care to recognize that for the most part xbox live is lag free and you don't have to sit around for 10 seconds everytime you switch screens. you think I just bought an xbox cause I love microsoft? i don't care about microsoft. no, i watched both consoles in action and chose the far superior one even though I knew I'd have to pay 4 bucks a month for online multiplayer.
Since a lot of people still dont have 2.40...they will now know what to do..and expect..
I understand 2.4 is the beginning of something beautiful,however I really wish they would of waited a month or so for more games to implement the features like trophies and in game music. Its cool having the tool, but with no game to utilize the music option its like dangling a horse in front of the carrots mouth. Same goes for Trophies, with just one game support. I guess I am one of the few whom would of rather waited to get more than just monkeybars in the sandbox ;) BRING ON THE SWINGSET!
Hehehe you said dangling a horse in front of the carrots mouth :D
first hello bob dole how are you doing second to omegasyde you must be very powerful like kratos to dangle a horse
Too bad this won't put an end to all the 2.40 news we have been getting everyday since it was released.
XBL > PSN. Until Video store and Cross Game Voice chat is implemented.
my left nut > u
Bob Dole > Everything
Shane Kim < 3 year old boy (intelligens)
if you think otherwise then you're either too cheap to get xbox live or you don't own an xbox 360
...Sony would come out and say when we can expect 2.4 to be released for download again. I managed to secure it before they took it offline but installing it stuffed up my Super Stardust HD. That is, all my sub-accounts on my PS3 only saw SS-HD as a demo until I reinstalled it. However, reinstalling it returned it to version 3.0 so now I have to wait before I can rack up a few trophies. Does anyone know why they took it offline?
"its like dangling a horse in front of the carrots mouth" lol wow, I didn't even know that was possible. ;) Good guide, but there's already 2 or 3 similar guides. Is it really necessary to have another?
lol +bubble for your quickeye Too bad its late for me to drop in a stealth edit. Fudge.
I didn't even catch that. lol.....
for anyone who knows even half of what the PS3 is really capable of?
http://boardsus.playstation... Looks like theres some freezing issues and some lag....no wonder why the firmware is still not back up huh....Could this be the ps3's RROD? I was at best buy today and someone was returning a 60 gig because their machine was ruined from 2.4 firmware...Best ps3 out there with 100% bc...I told him go through sony and the 60 gig is somewhat a collectors item and see if you can get another 60 gig.
you have to relise this its only happing to "some" people and by some i mean barley any like 0.12% of em (im guessin), and sony is taking care of it, and if you thinkin im makin this up the how are there people using this firmware, how did xtremeps3.com jud make a guide how did we put up "our first trophy video" if this firmware is really buggy and me and all my mares have 60 gig no 1 has had a problem yet and thewir enjoyin thir torphies (btw tahst 17 of us with 60 gigs) (and maybe more around where i live(
Nice try, but it's only affecting a few people. Sony removed it to help that small percentage. Typical xturds. Looking for maaaaaany ways to downplay the PS3. Don't you guys have games to play? Because you're allllways braggin' about games!
and he makes stuff up nobody believes in, not even him, it's kinda cute. xbot's wet dream: "COULD THIS BE THE PS3 RROD???" so much excitement and then deception, over and over... lol
hahahaha really funny xbot really funny "this could be the rrod of ps3" u wish hahaha
a) it was a gimped update to begin with b) it is bricking PS3s. people are reformatting their hard drives left and right and/or sending thier hunks of junk back to sony to get fixed for $150. it really is sad. sony TVs are pretty good but they really screwed up with the PS3
I found that I can web browse while playing music. Dont know if that is a 2.40 thing or if you could do prior? Its not cross game chat, but a nice feature. Hopefully Sony can get something going with adobe to update to current flash player for web browser. How difficult would that be to do, or is it Sony having to pay adobe?
a very well done guide extremeps3.com, it may help alot of people aswel thank you
what is so hard? you pop in a disc...play the game...hit the PS button...i dont think its really that hard..its just like the old xmb but it has a clock..this guide is useless
dam they had Home on there PS3 :(
too bad music only works for like 2 games so far. but it will for all the new games.
b-rein an't lying, the new update is not as buggy as many of you think. i'm enjoying the new update and i think its one of sony's best so u xbox jerks go diss your own console cause its an failed experiment.
People are judging this way too much.. Sony is providing you with XBL style service for free.. PSN will only get better from here.. With firmware updates.. The possiblities and options are limitless.. they can add anything at any time.. Yes 2.40 has its lil problems.. but Its free and gives me what XBL has.. I for one will not complain but commend Sony for doing something for their fans and doing it for Free SO quit being babies and dont bite the hand thats feeding you free food
2.4 is an awesome upgrade and it is free, but it is subjective to say it has XBL type features. I think that te PSN needs to have it's own innovative additions, like Trophies. IMO Sony is offering it for free to help it compete with XBL and thats great. I think Sony is trying their best and fixing the problems. A lot of people did not have problems, but for those people who did not get a chance to download or have freeaing issues or other problems may have a little chip on their shoulder. It's there right. Your basically saying since it's free people should shut up. Good thing Sony does not operate like that.
Nice, too bad it is not available for download. I know a few dozen people that have patiently wating for this update and they missed the oppurtunity to download it. Sony is doing the right thing by pulling it off the server, but they need to announce a fix time.
yea its like icing on the cake basically. people just bash it cuz xboxfanboys are just mad that they are still paying for XBL, when soon PSN will have basically everything that XBL has.
Theres no reason to bash either XBL and PSN. They are what they are, simple. I do not know many people complain about paying for XBL; it's like $4.08 a month, but honestly who would want something for free. Assuming that it is good product or service.
Back from a 12 day camp!!!! And I was right, 2.4 was released before I got back....no need to get worried. It'll be up again soon everyone. Fill me in on anything else I missed please I will give bubbles. :P
but i'll have to wait some more until it comes back. Pinche 2.40.
Tell me about it. Has Sony mentioned when they plan on re-releasing 2.4? And when is this "home" thing supposed to come out? With Sony all you do is wait.
You'd think by now web designers would have learned to make their pages compatible with most web browsers. Can't access the link because it says browser not supported. I have 2.40 ps3 software and hope someone else makes a guide everyone can access.
just take out the feature that you couldn't use. Like videos, web browser,ps store, yada yada. They can obviously "not show" features because if you notice when you pop up ingame xmb it doesnt show remote play. Well i guess could sony could update that in later.
