Firmware 2.40 to have In-Game XMB and Include “More features than expected” [Update]

Jim, a moderator at NeoGAF, posted on the forums today that 2.40 is the real deal and will include in-game XMB and “more features than expected”. Apparently it is all he is allowed to say. An EA employee on the forums also responded “I can confirm this, but there is more then just in-game XMB coming in 2.40.” This excites us even more. What else could be in this exciting firmware update?

[In-Game XMB!]

Update 9:14 PM: Here comes some more developer confirmations. Insomniac’s James Stevenson stated that they are keeping secrets because of “Stupid NDAs and documents with confidential written on them! Always foiling you guys!” That EA employee said “Yea its pretty awesome what they are doing with this firmware update. A lot of you will be happy with it for a while.” We hope to find out the full list of this update soon.
