Flashing Names on Friend List

11 replies 1375 views Edited Mar 14, 2011

Whats up guys, for a while I've noticed that sometimes on my friends list some of the usernames flash, or blink. Does anyone know what this means or why it does that?

Just to clear this up for me to answer,

Are you highlighting the name/have ure controller selected on the friend or while your not on it.

If that is hard to understand please tell me

I know for a fact that it flashes when you have your controller selecting it. But sometimes I notice names Im not selecting/highliting that are flashing.

I haven't played my PS3 much since I got my Sexbox, but when I do I have noticed this problem. Must have been a side effect from one of the recent (and very useless) firmware updates.

ONE WORD POST IN ALL CAPS

sorry,

im busy tonight.

no time for troll feedin'

OP ive seen this before, most likely a status update of some kind or possibly recent messages, newly signed in, etc. I see the same flashing in other menus, for example when my bluetooth is on I see the ACCESORIES flashing etc.

I wouldnt be too concerned about it though. Ive seen it for a couple years now.

Cheers

What? You're too lazy to explain your stupid one word post so instead you decide to throw some irony on yourself?
