UPDATE: Sony has updated the PixelJunk Eden website with an interesting game key feature, Trophy Support. Take a look for yourselves.
ORIGINAL STORY: According to our PS3forum industry insider, Sony will be releasing Firmware 2.4 sometime in June around the launch of Metal Gear Solid 4. Also mentioned is that the new Firmware 2.4 will include some of the first PlayStation Trophies. *Note that these will be the 2D trophies found on the XMB and not the 3D trophies coming in Home later this year.
"The SDK 2.40 will be available to dev. late in June. The actual Firmware 2.40 might see the light of day a lot sooner (my personal guess would be launch aligned or slightly before MGS4 )." - PS3Forum Insider
Further into the thread, they state that the Firmware 2.4 will also include improved Audio/Video communication, however don't get your hopes up that this is for in-game XMB. Since developers will receive their 2.4 debug units in June, expect only first party Sony titles to have trophies first.
Stay tuned to PSU for more information.

I'll believe it when I see it.

Nice! Can't wait, it's gonna be a good addition that i've been waiting for and one thing that the X-box 360 has that I really like.
- 7:34pm EDT - May 13th, 2008
I hope the Audio/Video helps with the EyeToy. I can only connect for about 10-20 seconds before the chat get's dropped.
I do love that the PS3 is ever improving.

This is great. to be honest, I would much rather have a simple 2d trophy system that I can just access from the menu. Much like the 360s.
P.S. They should be called skillpoints.

concerning Home, I don't understand why they can shuffle the closed beta a bit to allow others to mess with it for a bit. I'm really starting to loss interesting in Home all togeather. but I'm still downloading it this november though

What the h3ll are trophies?? can you assume that the more someone has the less chance they have of a social life?
- 3:25am EDT - May 14th, 2008
cool! i hope it's true
- 4:40am EDT - May 14th, 2008
hopefully we'll also get achievements... eeh I mean accomplishments
- 5:12am EDT - May 14th, 2008
psn id: gingo.... nice at least sony are learning from xbl and implementing some things that people are asking for
- 6:13am EDT - May 14th, 2008
they better have in game xmb
- 6:19am EDT - May 14th, 2008
Yeah.. Now we´re talking!!
- 8:11am EDT - May 14th, 2008
Meh, I just want the improved XMB, the trophies may screw up Warhawks online play!
- 8:11am EDT - May 14th, 2008
hopefully if you already beat a game like resistance, you'll automatically get the trophy. i don't feel like beating all my games again just to get a trophy. but this a great idea, hopefully the info is correct and hopefully sony does as good of a job as microsoft had done with achievements
