What exactly is Trophy? Like Gamer Awards or something? Nice new addition with XMB support.

For now they are, but once Home is release they will have quite a difference between the two.

Nice. I mean In-Game XMB is possible now. It was just up to the Devs to support it. Burnout Paradise has a perfectly working in game messaging that accesses your Friends directly from the XMB. Tho I still think it should just be a normal feature regardless of the game.

Sony is getting a little frantic trying to sell systems by releasing this before home imo. Speaking of home, wasn't the originally scheduled for last October?

Pretty awesome news. Now I'm waiting for mouse&keyboard support for other FPS games-- COD4 in particular X] but that of course is up to the makers of the games. Can't wait till Home finally comes out as well.

in-game XMB is a big deal! finally i wont have to quit out of some games to get messages. what i was also hoping for is the addition of dolby trueHD support for blu-ray. i hope that is still in the works.
