New PS3 firmware - but no XMB update

Your PS3 will update itself to firmware version 2.35 today, but it's nothing to get mega-excited about.

Sony tells us it's a minor update that will do nothing more than "improve stability of some PS3 titles".

Still no in-game XMB, although SCEE big man Ray Maguire said back in March that the much-anticipated feature is being worked on for a 2.4 update in "summer".

So, some time soon, although Sony UK is still unwilling to narrow down that time frame, and there was absolutely no mention of it at Sony's recent PlayStation Day event in London.

Patience is a virtue, we suppose...
