PS3 update to introduce trophies system

Plus in-game XMB access.

Sony has confirmed the next firmware update for PlayStation 3 will introduce a new rewards system and in-game access to the cross media bar.

A post on the US PlayStation blog reads, "The 2.40 system software update for PS3 will include "XMB" access in-game.

"The update will also include "trophies," an exciting new feature that we’ll be providing more details on soon, as well as some other new enhancements."

The news comes just after Sony released firmware update 2.36. It doesn't do anything too fancy, apparently; it's just there for "improving system stability when playing select PlayStation format software titles".

And to top it all off PSP firmware update 4.0 is now available. As reported yesterday, this will allow you to perform Google searches and change the speed of video playback.
