Rumor: Firmware v2.40 XMB Features
With firmware v2.40 edging closer more things seem to leak on what exactly v2.40 will bring. CVG seems to have gotten the scoop on what you will actually be able to do in-game using the XMB. The full list is below.
- Friend category
- View, send, receive messages
- Manage downloads
- Set the vibration feature of the controller
- Sign in to PlayStation Network
- Register friends
- Manage Bluetooth devices
- Terminate the game
- Music category
- Use the system BGM
- Work the system BGM operation panel
- Settings category
- Assign controllers
- View profiles
- Game category
- Set audio devices
- Use the voice changer
They also have information on the trophy system that will be present with the upcoming update. There will 2D trophy accessible using the XMB with four types being present which are Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
You can only gain Platinum trophies when you have collected all other trophies in the game. Lastly there will be no gamer points but a leveling up system instead.Â
This all sounds pretty reasonable if you ask me. According to CVG the firmware is set to release in about three weeks, just in time for E3. Three weeks isn’t that long of a wait and this list of features seems legit but until Sony confirms anything label this a rumor for now.
