It's got to the point where I haven't even seen any other feature requested for months. I thought I would throw my Top-10 users' XMB feature requests out there to get a healthy discussion on other things that the XMB and the PS3 needs.
I am sure that a few of these feature requests are going to be made redundant when Home and in-game XMB does eventually come out, but I am also pretty sure some of these features are for will still be outstanding this time next year…
1) Better handling of headsets
Imagine the scenario, if you will. You're kicking ass in Warhawk. Your clan is winning, but it's a close match. The blue team has some good players on it but due to your excellent teamwork the lead is yours. Then the zone you're guarding gets rushed, a tank stays in the distance and a jeep with three ground troops charges at you. You call for the help of your buddies but your Bluetooth headset is flat! Nooo! No fear, you still have your PlayStation Eye, you plug it in – and then realise that before it's going to be recognised by the PS3 you're going to have to quit the game, go to the accessory settings, change the default input device from the Bluetooth headset to the USB one and then re-load. Yes. You lost the zone; your clan lost the game.
If the PS3 could use the last connected device as the default audio input then you might have been able to call in support. Alternatively it could give the user the option to change the default audio devices in the controller I-D screen."
