Sony releases firmware PS3 2.40 [UPDATED]

Looking forward to the new 2.40 firmware for Sony’s PlayStation 3 console?

It’s live a day ahead of schedule (depending which part of the world you’re in)–though it’s still July 1st in California, I’m downloading the 2.40 update right now so if you’re eager to get your hands on in looks like it’s ready whenever you are.

In case you missed the previous post, some of the new features will include:

  • In-game XMB
  • Trophies
  • New on-screen music player
  • Ability to send a text message to other PSN uses in your friends list

For more info about the 2.40 update check out this post which also has links to a video walkthrough of the XMB as well as one the new trophies feature.

Just found this too–a new FAQ about the 2.40 update to help get you started with the new features.

UPDATE: Looks like some problems were found with the 2.40 firmware and Sony has pulled it to take a look…stay tuned…
