Firmware 2.4 Announced [UPDATE]

It appears, much to the dislike of loyal PS3 fans, that IN GAME XMB WILL NOT BE COMING OUT UNTIL THIS SUMMER. It will come in Firmware 2.4! No I'm not crazy! I know were at 2.1! however, according to SCE UK boss Ray Maguire. Thats when will get the highly requested feature. The next two firmwares will be minor security updates, and not introduce any new features. SONY, YOU BETTER MAKE THE HOME BETA PUBLIC!!! You Can check out the article here:

[UPDATE] Firmware 2.4 has gained alot of buzz today on the 'net! We may be a tad off in saying that 2.4 will unveil in game XMB. Technically Maguire said In Game Messaging would come in 2.4, In Game Messaging is only a component of in Game XMB. Theoretically In Game XMB could come in the next firmware, leaving out messaging. Details are still scarce on every upcoming major update from Sony (HOME, In Game XMB, In Game Messaging, etc...) Please forgive us for our mistake, we read too much into it. However we may have two more supporting things to add to In Game Messaging, that have been previously confirmed! The first was posted on the offical site and then removed (momentarily) confirming eventually In Game Messaging would come:

The Second is difficult for us to confirm, but were going on a limb, and posting something we herd, we heard that the PlayTV launches in Europe in a few weeks time, and that will require a firmware update. If thats so that may mean at least us seeing In Game XMB released or possibly even HOME!!!! (Don't quote us on this, were not sure!)
