This way users could for example have the movie poster, and a larger version of their movie covers included in the PIC1.PNG.
I have also pestered Dean twice, I believe, to implement scrapers similar to XBMC for both movies & music. That would allow for movie/album/artist thumbs and also fanart which would be a welcome addition. Pressing
could take the user to an info page with movie/artist information-again much like XBMC.
If he ultimately decides to go this route, perhaps 5+ different "modes" would be appropriate-movie, music, PS3, PS2, PS1 (when feasible), RETRO, etc.
I hate to keep referencing XBMC when suggesting certain features however, for many, its features are most desired on the PS3...
Also, a plugin system of sorts would be the bomb. Having a custom Pandora plugin, for example, would be sweet.
A means to create/name music playlists & a popup MP3 OSD (originally suggested by Condor) similar to this would be great as well:
Finally, if some graphics wizards could get a driver running and port the spectacular Milkdrop visualization to the PS3, I would be happy.
At the very least, maybe someone from Sony could drop a hint how to hook into the stock visualizations... HEHE
