Sony Computer Entertainment has confirmed that the alleged first shots of the PlayStation 3’s In-game Xcross Media Bar (XMB) are in reality a user-fabricated hoax.
Speaking to website CVG, a spokesperson for the company stated, “The XMB images are fake.”
The spokesperson also put an end to Internet speculation suggesting that the In-game XMB would arrive some time this month, adding, "There are no firmware updates planned for January."
For those unaware, the image, pictured below, surfaced on the Internet yesterday claiming to be the first shots of the highly anticipated update.
