I believe that they need to put the friends list in a different location or have it more easily accessible to finding out who is online and such because as of right now it has too many steps to go through just to find out who is online and also to find new friends.

The should just keep a simple xmb while playing and the original (without the gray bar on friend's list) while not playing.

Hey Sony, implement a firmware with hypervisor holes so someone can do a fully customised firmware and fix things up nicely
