While this may look nice, no one here knows what kind of resources it would take to make that setup possible. Maybe Sony tried to do something like this but the XMB became slow and unbearable to use. I think Sony has done a good job with their updates, and I hope they continue with the good work

you doubt the power of the CELL?

Seriously, these are simple graphics, with a bit of information downloaded from the web. It should take a fraction of a second to download level, #bronze, #silver, #gold, #plat. That is all they need to display. Once you compare trophies it is a lot more to download, but the main XMB should be easily doable.


I would never be to foolish as to doubt the CELL.

Its not the graphics that would be the problem in my eyes, but just all of the trophy information.   Like last night I had over 20 friends online, that would mean it would have to download all 20 of my friends trophy information at startup.   And thats if they only did the ones who were onine, otherwise it would be 90 friends worth of trophy information it would have to download at startup.    But in the end I dont really know what would have to be done to make this happen, but neither does anyone here.


I'm sure it could work, they could just change the way the setup is with a software update(?)...I'm not too knowledgeable on the way PS3's are setup, but it doesn't seem so hard to have all your friend's info on the fly as presented in this photoshop mock up. Looks great, and give you all the info and trophy stats conveniently. Xbox Live has a simpler setup, and it's only a few seconds for all your friends' info to show up on their Gamercard, and that interface is more...more...lol. So I'm sure PS can do it, and it's just a sexy design period, well worth the effort to try and utilize within the next (hopefully)  firmware update.

It looks pretty good but I doubt we're gonna see something like that.

Well first, they'd need to sort out the trophies loading system - have you seen how much it takes for it to load?

Of course it's improved recently but I guess if they could speed up that first then they could implement it to look more like this!



You have my sword...errr, I mean I agree....



Looks really nice :D

that looks nice, hopefully sony notices this and decides to use it. :)



I like it! Change nao Sony...pretty please.



Has anyone pointed out that getting all that information to display by default would take forever to load, even if you just wanted to send a message you'd need wait for even more loading too.


This isn't practical at all. If it went ahead and actually got released as an update you'd all be complaining how slow everythign is.

Actually, you would only need a tiny bit of data. for the friend list you would need an extra 20 bytes for each person over the internet, which isn't much at all. Displaying it also shouldn't be much of a problem either. Also, for trophy information you could just poll the data once every few hours and store it on the HDD, so you wouldn't need to download the extra 2KB for a large friend list on startup.




If you drop a PS3 right on top of a Wii, it would definitely defeat it. Not so sure about the Xbox360. - mancandy
