Gamecyte writes: "Today, Sony revealed that they will finally provide the in-game XrossMediaBar functionality that was first demonstrated back in 2006, as well as the "trophy" achievement system promised in early 2007, as a part of their v2.4 software update for the PlayStation 3. They're not saying when it will arrive, but perhaps that's a wise choice; Sony doesn't exactly have a solid track record when it comes to keeping promises.
To be sure, we don't care if the PS3 can display at 120 frames-per-second or not. We'll forgive the lack of a second HDMI port and the built-in ethernet router, even though you snatched them right out from under our noses. But after factoring in the constant delays of Home and the faked Killzone 2 assets, we begin to wonder where else Sony might have pulled the wool over our eyes."
