i just upgraded the ps3 to the new 3.00 firmware. the enhanced XMB is cute and the added media features are nice. it really starts to position the PS3 as a media center.
the upgrade went without issue and the new background with the sparklies is a nice little touch. one thing that i don’t like is that when you are hovering over an item in the XMB, the other options fade out. i prefer to see the context around my selection.
the text in the XMB also appears to have gotten bigger. i don’t think that i mind it, but it does take a little getting used to.
