- Since PS3 Firmware 3.0 many have voiced their dislike on the gray bars around the Friends List redesign.
Last week we saw some videos on Sony PS3 XMB Ideas
, and today some 'Premium Avatar' Friends List concept pictures surfaced from Andrewskates
on the official PlayStation Boards
To quote: "Here are some rough concepts I made up, with the direction I think Sony [is] going to take with the unpopular gray friend cards, integrating them as 'Premium Avatars'.
I figured it would seem a bit of a rip off to just pay for new small pictures, thus I think that they will incorporate the entire card instead of just a small picture.
This would be a great way to market upcoming games and further integrate the IP's into the user base.
I left in the current gray boring design in as a direct comparison. Bear in mind these were just made for fun."
