Sony: We know in-game PS3 XMB access is important and we're working hard


Speaking to Game Informer, Sony's Peter Dille revealed that the company understands in-game XMB access is a feature important to their consumers. But as the PS3 is so advanced it takes time to implement major new features. However, he reassures us that the team is working hard on this feature as they continually evolve the feature set of the Playstation 3 console.




"As far as in-game XMB access, we know it's a feature that's important to our consumers. Because PS3 packs so much advanced technology 'under the hood,' it takes some time to implement major, new functionalities, but we are working hard on addressing this feature, as well as continually expand the capabilities and functionalities of PS3."

In order to download PS3 system software version 2.10, you will need a minimum 120Mb of free space on either the PS3 Hard Disk Drive (System Update) or on removable storage media (PC Update).


The PLAYSTATION 3 system software version 2.10 update includes the following:

The Voice Changer feature has been added to voice / video chat. Visit the Voice Changer guide in Help & Support under PS3 at for more details.


Using this feature, you can change the tone of a voice that is input from an audio device such as a microphone. High and low-pitched tones can each be adjusted to five preset levels. You can vary the tone when using voice / video chat under Friends.



Other new or revised features in version 2.10




* You can now select [Type 3] as an option under Settings > [Music Settings] > [bitmapping]. This bitmapping process was developed specifically for the PS3TM system to enhance audio playback.




* DivX and VC-1 (WMV) have been added to the types of files that can be played. *

* [bD Data Utility] has been added. ***



- To play VC-1 (WMV) format files, you must go to Settings > [system Settings] and set [Enable WMA Playback].

** You may now be able to use several additional features such as playback of two videos at the same time with Profile 1.1-compatible Blu-ray Discs. The available features vary depending on the disc.

*** The management data that is used by the Blu-ray Disc is saved.




* This system software update includes all features contained in previous versions.

* The new system software will preserve any settings previously made to the PLAYSTATION 3. Depending on the software title, you may not be able to play without first updating the PS3 system software.

* Do not perform updates using any data other than the official update data provided by Sony Computer Entertainment over a network or on disc media, and do not perform updates by methods other than those described in the product documentation or in this site. If an update is performed using data from another source, by another method, or with a PS3 system that has been altered or modified in any way, the PS3 system may not operate properly and may not be able to install the official update data. Any of these actions may void the PS3 system warranty and affect your ability to obtain warranty services and repair services from Sony Computer Entertainment.
