Re: XMB NEEDS TO BE REDESIGNED!

Apr 14, 2011

So far, 'dems the rules!

But, as I said before, us Mods are lookin' into it. ..... technically, it's more comparison we like to stay away from. We don't mind you mentioning the other consoles....but it's when there's a direct comparison happening... that can get tricky...

A redesign is welcome, but not needed.

The XMB is simple and easy.

Just to keep in mind everybody, the PS3's XMB has well over 30 icons.  Arranging them in a coherent, easy to read manner is harder than you might think.  The current setup is pretty much great.


Well said! And yes there are many icon, it can be a time consuming task creating a theme. Thats key difference, we PS3 owners have the option to alter our XMB almost entirely. The only change I'd welcome is Sony supported tools for personal design options. A redesign is not a welcomed idea nor needed.

Great work PD so far, keep the DLC coming!

There's one kit made by a Sony Employee which allows you to put together a theme. I don't know where I found it, but it's out there. For design, however, you'd need Photoshop or Gimp.

To the OP.

NO.

IT's too late to change this late anyway. Wait for the PS4.

Also, The Game.

To be honest, I'm quite fond of simple UIs that are easy to navigate. XMB fits into that category quite well, and I don't see why it should be changed.

Hook a brother up! Please give me the name of the app you have, a version #, anything. I'm a PS king, well Elements anyway, I can gimp if needed but not likely needed.

Great work PD so far, keep the DLC coming!
