PS3 Interface Demo

Wondering how you'll be interacting with your PS3 once you manage to actually get your hands on Sony's next generation console? If you have a PSP, you'll have a good idea of the system's basic Cross Media Bar (XMB) interface, but today Sony Japan provided a close-up look at the specific PS3 version. Point your browser here to see all the icons for yourself.

Since the site is in Japanese, here's a guide. From left to right, the icons are as follows. Appearing below the main headers are the options that will appear when you select the individual icons.

I don't want to start any wars here, but "PLAYERS WITH WHOM YOU'VE PLAYED"? Is that really what it says? They couldn't have come up with a shorter way of saying that, like um...recent players perhaps? I'm assuming that since this is translated from Japanese that there isn't really a "PLAYERS WITH WHOM YOU'VE PLAYED" section, but if there is...wow, that's just bad. Maybe instead of "messages" it could say, "WRITTEN VERSIONS OF SPOKEN WORDS WHICH HAVE BEEN SHIPPED ELECTRONICALLY TO YOU BY PLAYERS WITH WHOM YOU'VE PLAYED."

~Again, don't want to start any flame wars, I just found this really funny.

Im actually quite disappointed with that. Its basically a straight port of the PSP menu. Someone said earlier, "Sony are innovative" well if that statement is true, then whats up with the menu? Do ya all see what im saying though? Its boring.

the must be a major reason why the interface looks more like a psp one.Don`t forget the psp will be remote to this thing..virtually interacting with ur ps3 music, videos u name it.keeping both interfaces thesame kinda makes more sence
