Just a suggestion, as this seems to be broken. Not even sure if this is the right place to post it, if it's not, my apologies.
On my PS3, when I go to the last menu on XMB (friends), I can't see people who are on their Vitas. I mean, it shows them online, sometimes with a bugged avatar (just the loader, never finishing loading), and no information on what they are playing.
When I try this on my Vita, I can see what everyone is playing. People on their PS3 show up with the PS3 Controller icon and game name, and people on the Vita show up with a Vita icon and game name.
It should be this way on the PS3 too, it is broken the way it is now.
