Sony’s FAQ About Firmware 2.40
Sony have put an FAQ up on their official blog answering questions that were raised by the two firmware videos. Here’s a taster of some of the questions:
Q: Will voice-messaging/private chat be featured in 2.40 as well? If not, can we expect to see this feature added in the future?
A: We are evaluating the opportunity to offer voice chat, but for this update, we wanted to focus on text messaging as the key priority for communications that our users have asked for.
Q: Can you use the web browser in game?
A: No, you must exit the game before browsing the internet.
Q: Will In-Game XMB come up during playback of PS2 games, Blu-Ray discs, and DVDs?
A:The XMB is an exclusive feature for PS3 game titles. Accessing the XMB during gameplay was the top request from our users, which we focused on for this update. However, we continually engage PS3 owners for feedback and will evaluate the opportunity to offer XMB access during movie playback in the future.
Q: Can we go to the display settings and change anything there in-game (resolution, input, etc)?
A: No, you must exit the game before changing these settings.
Q: Will it be possible to change in-game the sound output?
A: Yes, sound output changes are supported.
Cheers Sporty for bringing it to my attention via the Shoutbox! 🙂
