As cool as the tribal dragon I was using is, I'm gonna have to upload my forum avatar. smile

The XMB being able to be accessed while in-game is a step in the right direction though...

It's Sony attempting to keep one step ahead of the pirates (a fight that last time I checked, they're currently winning). Duh. smile

Roughly translated - it's the firmware requirements on the PSP. They don't do anything to make your game 'better' - it's just piracy protection.

My Okami background is going to look great on my TV.

Now, just give me the ability to listen to music while surfing the web and I'll be a happy camper.

Actually someone was saying on another forum that it's a typo and they mean PS2 format.

Since I am a lazy slug, I may just set up some RSS video feeds on the PS3 so I can watch/listen to some podcasts on my tv.
