    Not that this is a real surprise, considering the leaked graphic (see attachment) on Sony's Web site, but:

    Ray Maguire, chief of the UK division of Sony Computer Entertainment, let slip a few details about an upcoming firmware when speaking with MCV.

    "Achieving one million PS3 sales faster than both PSOne and PlayStation 2 is even more gratifying considering PS3 is a premium product introduced at a premium price," he told MCV. "Our momentum will continue with the introduction of in-game communication in the summer, firmware update 2.4 and the strongest line-up of games through our third party partners and our own studios. I'd personally like to thank our trade and business partners for helping us on the start of the PS3 journey."

    Very cool, but I am more excited for home. Some of my friends are even selling their 360s and getting PS3s in preparation for it. Its gonna be like Xbox Live except with a living breathing world surrounding it.

    Its been overly needed. Does that mean full XMB in-game support is imminent?
