Project Ideas: Possibilities of the PlayStation 3 XMB Interface

550°
265w ago - Recently SKFU shared some details on a PC / PS3 Messenger project in development, and over the weekend he has also theorized on some other untapped potential via the PS3's XMB (Cross Media Bar) interface.

To quote: The XMB is a nice core for a lot of features but why are they not unlocked yet? To mention a few examples:

Selfmade Widgets
The PS3 uses a widget engine based on open source for the information board. So why not give us the ability to load our own homebrew widget's from external mediums or install them like themes? As they mostly use XML and flash files it wouldn't even compromise PS3's security.

Music Visualizations
The PSP has a lot of them, the PS3 only three. Next-Gen multimedia entertainment? Not really, yet.

Universal Messenger
The PSP can use Skype, why not the PS3? The PS3's messaging system is based on Jabber. It would be very simple to allow the PS3 to communicate with iCQ, Google Talk and other instant messenger protocols.

Open File Transfer
Why can we only send pictures with size limitation via the PSN while we would more like to send music files or savegames. If that uses to much ressources like traffic,...
 

Project: PC / PS3 Messenger in Development

550°
266w ago - Update: Just after we finished the sign-in adress checker which you see in the post below, now we finished another part of the whole. The user info reader is finished and ready to be implemented. With it we can define user's PSN nickname, language, avatar and the "about me"-section.

Many user would like to communicate with their friends on PS3. As there's no default application for it we thought of just writing our own if it is possible. So we done a lot of research already, but still work in progress.

The base to work on is definitive there and we will try to successfull finish this nice project. What I can tell you so far, is that the PSN messaging is based on the XMPP protocol, used by several IM-programs like Jabber.

We also just finished an application to filter the real nickname you will need to login into the PSN later. You will just need to enter your normal PSN account name and the program spits out your messanger nickname. With this nickname, you can then login into the messenger environment to be able to send pics and messages to your PS3 friends.

We hope it's possible to have all running soon and be able to give you a usefull addon for the PC, so you don't need to feel "alone", just you'r not on your PS3 and can type with your friends ;-)

I won't explain the details here yet until the project is finished 100%, also cuz many devs want to take a look at first and not get it patched that fast.

PlayStation 3 Project Preview: PS3-Wii Media Portal in the Works!

400°
289w ago - I'm currently working on a PS3-Wii Media Portal. I've been working on it for about 3 months now for approximately 2-3 hours a day.

At the moment I am integrating a flash MP3 Player for it. I will put it on a Googlecode page and add a download link when the beta comes out.. it will be ready for a beta in about a week if I can continue steady work on it.

The project is from Team PSI and I'm the main Dev working on it.. I used to have a Web site, but I closed it so am sharing the news here.

Hope to have it ready for beta release soon, below are some preview pics!
