I don't know if they XMB Customization update includes this or not, but Sony really needs to make a way for users to adjust the color of the XMB icons and text. I've run across quite a few wallpapers that I would have liked to have used, but didn't use them because the white XMB icons were hard to read against the background.

This sounds really cool. Good update!!! I hope the themes will change the format and layout of the dash more, and not just a background/icon/text change. Otherwise, it is nothing special.... I still want a dash that looks more like a impressive video game GUI, or, yes, xbox live.

They would need to be in your room to do it.

Yes, you can use the Remote Play function over the internet with the newest firmwares. Before that, however, you would need to pair the PS3 and PSP via USB. I didn't expect that the PS3 could Wake-on-LAN, but that seems very useful.

would've been more effective if they didnt charge for it at all. It would show to parents that sony cared. i mean the shouldve build it into the actual consoles parental settings so a parent dont have to go thru much trouble to protect their child cause we all know they are lazy. tongue.gif
