The XMB on the PS3 is a very different animal than the Xbox 360 Tabs or Avatar interface. The XMB is an entity of pure function. It's easy to grasp and easy to navigate. At launch it was rather plain and feature lacking, but over the years Sony has steadily improved on it. They added themes, picture galleries, information bar, support for flash, the list goes on. There are a couple of minor features that are so obvious they just make you wonder why the hell Sony didn't include them. Here they are in no particular order.
