Why Now is the Perfect Time for Firmware 2.40

Jason Large from GamePlasma writes:

"Let's face it; we've all been waiting a long time for in-game XMB on the PlayStation 3. It's been a very long time if you take into account that the feature arguably should have been available upon the console's release. Whether it should have been released already or not is now irrelevant because it is apparently coming with the Firmware 2.40 update; and the timing could not be better for Sony."

Not going to happen. Even if it did, it's not going to be what you all want it to be. This will be a bare bones, stripped down, in game xmb if anything at all.

I don't see us getting into our music or surfing the web while in game. I just don't. All I want is the option to switch between resolutions while in game. Sometimes I am in a game that allows you to play it in 1080p if you uncheck 720p and in order for me to do this I have to change the settings 1st. It's a hassle.

crimsonfox3776d ago

why would you wanna go on the internet are you fuking retarded.

people want it for messages and music that's all that must be there anything else is a freebe

Drekken3776d ago

wow.. first thing I agree with you on... changing the 720P sucks.

Ri0tSquad3775d ago

But like you said were getting a stripped down version of it which is 100% true. I think the majority of us know were not going to be able to use every single feature in-game like the web browser, using the PS Store, watching videos etc etc.

crimsonfox3775d ago

who wants to do anything other than play and message when there playing a game come on watch a video?...for what

gunnerheadboy3775d ago

If you play a game that support 1080P it will automaticly play as 1080P if the native res. is 720P it will automaticly play as 720P. There is no need to uncheck or check anything unless you want to upscale it.

BTW, I doubt you have a PS3 anyway.

Megaton3775d ago

I'm thinking the same. They'll probably announce it during their press conference so they have something extra to "unveil".

Pornlord3775d ago

E3! I can't wait for trophies. It's the only reason I even consider picking up titles for my 360.

LiquifiedArt3775d ago

I've waiting since the beginning. It'll be a birthday gift no matter when it arrives. Or maybe like Christmas all over again.
