"Today is the start of a new Ripten mid-week feature, where I, the resident Brit, get to rant about an issue in the gaming industry. If you have anything you'd like me to address in future rants no matter how big or small, don't hesitate to contact us. This weeks rant concerns the much wanted In-Game XMB for the Playstation 3.
There was some fuss over the last PS3 firmware update before it even hit. 2.0 was rumoured to contain a number of much wanted things – such as being able to play your own music during games, or bring up the cross-media bar (XMB) during gameplay. This final feature is perhaps the most wanted by Playstation owners, but I'm here to say they don't need it."
