Full feature list of upcoming PS3 firmware 2.40?
You’ll likely have to wait a few more weeks for the official release of firmware 2.40 for the Sony PlayStation 3 console, but to tide you over until then CVG says they’ve gotten their hands on the full feature list for the release.
In addition to in-game access to the XMB and trophies (should be essentially the same thing as ‘achievements’ on the Xbox 360), the features will allegedly include:
- 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
No confirmation from Sony on any of this yet, but it sounds reasonable so I guess we’ll all just sit tight for a few more weeks until E3 opens.
