Default Question about PS3 dashboard during blu-ray playback

Hi,

I did a search but couldn't find anything. As you PS3 owner know, whenever you're in a game, you can press the PS button to go to the dashboard, and see your online friends, for example.

Why didn't put that functionnality during a blu-ray playback? Why don't you receive the "Friend online" warning also?

The PS3's XMB is a work in progress constantly updated. But those are the kind of questions that are never answered --until an update arrives that fixes exactly that.


The Xbox 360 does that, though...

Because BD and DVD playback signs you out of PSN and stops any of your background downloads. We would need a firmware update to add "in-movie" XMB.

If they add that at some point, they sure as hell better add a way to turn it off. I don't need that stuff popping up while I am engrossed in a good film.

I wouldnt want to be bothered by popups when I am watching a movie either, however I would like to be able to download a trailer or demo while I am watching a movie.
