Sony is indeed listening to the views of consumers on what to include in their firmware updates. In an update to a blog posted earlier, Eric Lempel, Director of PlayStation Network Operations, said that Sony is working on incorporating in-game XMB access and more information on the feature should be available soon. Most of you will probably know that in-game XMB access is one of the most popular features consumers would like to see.
The update reads:
“Also, I noticed a lot of your comments were directly related to accessing XMB features in-game. We understand this is something you want and we are working on it. For the sake of keeping all the comments below on topic, please understand that we hear this request and are working toward a solution. When I have some more info to share on this, know that I will do so here on this blog.”
Now lets see of Sony listens to all the other requests like better video format support and in-game music playback. Whether in-game access makes it in the next firmware update remains to be seen, but so far it’s looking good. Look out for more information soon.
