PSP XMB crosses over to home theatre
HD Beat is one of my favorite blogs here at Weblogs Inc, and they recently called something "a bigger revolution in home theater than the Nintendo Wii controller is to gaming." Can you guess what they were talking about? They're referring to the XMB interface, but adapted for the home theatre environment. As you know, the PlayStation 3 will also be using a similar design to the menu we've come to love on our PSPs and the upcoming STR-DA5200ES (catchy name) will take the idea one step further. CNET has tons of pictures of the menu in action, and I have to say: it looks pretty sweet.

if sony takes this to the next level then we could have something akin to panasonics shared control system over hdmi but in a user frendly manner that anyone can easily enjoy.
XMB is very intuitive. if you own a psp (i do) then you know how awesome this type of interface would be for those who may have a hard time pressing three buttons to change inputs on two or three devices to go from cable to mp3's on the PS3 to watching a BD with the right audio input selected. the XMB (and an automatic hdmi setup ap) would eleminate this and would be a huge selling point for me.
