So Sony finally officially announced PS3 FW 2.40 details! Here's a piece of the news:

"Here's the short list of what you can now do without exiting from games:
  • In-game XMB (a quick tap of the PS button brings it up)
  • View game-specific trophies (We'll have more on this major feature at 8AM EST / 5AM PST)
  • Time / date display
  • Send text messages to PSN users on your friends list
  • Access accessory settings, such as Bluetooth pairing and voice changer
  • View and manage downloads
  • Quits game directly from an icon under the "Game" section of the XMB
  • Search the web using the Google Search option under "Network" (similar to the latest PSP firmware)
  • Launch directly into another game from the one you're currently playing
  • Play music tracks stored on the HDD in games that support this feature
  • Access a new on-screen music player interface (when listening to your own tracks in supported titles)"
That's a quote from Joystiq.
Hmm, Sony sure is competing with Microsoft's X360 XBL! Now, the XMB has almost the same things the XBL has!

I didn't like how the PS3 actually navigates to the XMB when you try to play another game from within a game. I liked, however, how you can actually play a soundtrack from within a game! That's surely to come in handy! Oh, but let's not forget how you can chat with your friends while playing a game as opposed to being all lonely once you start playing a game :)

When HOME comes out for the PS3, that will be the killer touch! I can't wait to see HOME at action! Sony's all about content, yeah baby!

Oh, at Joystiq's article, they have posted a video featuring the new FW 2.40! Be sure to check it out!
