By Mike, Sunday, 29 June 2008 21:35 GMT

Social media manager for SCEA, Jeff Rubenstein has confirmed that at around midnight Pacific time – 8 a.m. BST – the Playstation Blog will be showing a video of the new PS3 XMB features in action.

“Planning 2 videos, 5 or so mins each. One for XMB features and one for Trophies,” replied Rubenstein to this Playstation Blog entry.

“None of the previous videos has been a short as 90 seconds, just as long as it takes to show off the features and not make you sit through a lot of fluff.”

See you in the morning then.
