PS3 Firmware 2.40: In-game XMB, Trophy Walkthrough Videos

Reading about the features of in-game XMB and Trophies is one thing, but actually seeing how they work is another. Thankfully, Sony was kind enough to post this pair of handy walkthrough videos on its official PlayStation blog this morning to provide a visual guide of the features announced on paper. The first video shows what the in-game XMB can do and the second previews the Trophy system. Both features seem very similar to those of the 360, but there are some small improvements that should make them even better on the PS3. Take a look and see what you think.
