CES 2008: Sony confirms in-game XMB for PS3 this year
“Hail to the king!” There’s much to rejoice in Sony‘s next-generation camp, for the company’s game division has just made millions of PlayStation 3 gamers’ dreams come true. While BD Live may be the new buzz word at the Consumer Electronics Show, the newest info coming in from their booth at the Las Vegas electronics show is beginning to pick up steam: something big is coming this 2008.
Sony Computer Entertainment’s running hot in the news waves right now, after PS3 Metal Gear Solid 4 exclusivity and BD Live caught on well at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show. But Sony’s Paul Purdy just turned up the heat to insanely sizzlin’, and it’s because he’s just confirmed a long-requested feature: in-game XMB access for the Sony PlayStation 3.
That’s right: we say confirmed. Word is that the bombshell was dropped at CES 2008 and the target period for the anticipated update would be within the Year of the Rat. That’s within this year folks! So we repeat: Xross Media Bar access while playing a game is coming to PlayStation 3 gamers soon.
But because Sony hasn’t divulged more information, we’re bound to hear more updates from its camp as time rolls by. More intel on this once the signals read five by five.
