PlayStation Firmware 2.41 Available

The word on the street (and the PlayStation Blog) is that Firmware 2.41 is now available to download for you PS3 should you wish to do so. The only change since 2.40 is that Sony has managed to fix the, a-hem, slight problem of consoles being broken by the update. Otherwise it's the same feature set as some of us have been enjoying problem-free since last week.

Those features, for those of you living in under-a-rocksville are twofold: Trophies, which have yet to be seen in any 'proper' games, and most importantly in-game XMB access. The latter of those two has, of course been awaited for some time.

That these features can now be obtained without gambling the life of your console is, obviously, a Good Thing. Although we do appreciate the irony that an update intended improve the PS3s usability, in fact stopped the console from being usable at all.

If only curing the RRoD was so simple a task!

Why that comment? This page is meant to be about the PS3, not the Xbox 360...

Great news that Sony solved the problem in 4 days, great work Sony.

However, is that icon from 1994 really the best you could find?

Hah, agreed William N.!

Oh and don't look surprised when the next firmware upgrade comes with a biohazard sign. At S.C.E.E., we aim to please.

*Looking at Louis's comment*

Here we go AGAIN...Why Fanboys, why? Could you not at the very least try to refrain from making such comments. Who are we to criticise Trusted Reviews? They are by far the best news and review site out there..

I give Willfried's comment a 5/10.

I completely agree they're the best review site, or at least the most entertaining and aesthetically pleasing - and when they start going on about Big Bad Mr. Kuro's God-in-a-black-hole-like black level, I certainly don't doubt their technical experience.

But they're critics. That means they're not allowed to be immune to criticism. Don't dish it out if you can't take it seems like a fair policy, and it's one they've readily embraced by adding a comments section. Good show - I love reading what everyone else thinks and especially when the reviewers snipe away at one another.

My only real criticism of TR so far? Review that MacBook WhAir! You should have put this to bed long ago! It serves no good pretending Apple don't make crap products, or only review the things you think you'll like, otherwise there's no point having a scale that goes down to 1. Like it or not it's Apple's latest laptop and sadly enough people bought it for it to be relevant. You even reviewed both the iPhone AND the iPod Touch, so surely the aim was always to be comprehensive. As a loyal fan, I for one, want to see this definitive verdict.

(But I'll concede no one really cares about the PS logo.)
