XMB battery glitch “definitely being corrected”

Wednesday, 8th July 2009 07:37 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Sony’s Eric Lempel has told PC World that the XMB glitch the causes the battery meter to cover PS3′s clock is going to be fixed.

“I personally don’t like that either, and it’s something that’s definitely being corrected,” he said.

Thank gravy for that. Lempel added that the major update coming to PS3′s UI later this year “won’t be like what the rumors say”.

That’s right, Eric. Nothing like the rumours.

    But why wait so long? Surely one of their software engineers could have sorted this out during an hour’s overtime one day, and slipped it in to one of the many FW updates?

    It’s a bit crazy really. Such a minor problem, but then it’s such a minor fix too.

    Probably will attach it to the next firmware update.

    The amusing this is that shit like this should never ever be allowed to happen. Ever.

    What the fuck is the point of a clock which is rendered useless by a giant battery symbol which appears after pressing a button to activate the clock. ffs.
    Epic fail.

    We had to wait a fucking year for a clock and then when it got added it was rendered useless by this epic UI fail, which makes us all sound like whiney little bitches for even mentioning it.
