    Which PS3 version do you have?
    I have 80GB PAL version, and mine isn't particularly loud.
    I heard they fixed temperature/fan issues with newer PS3 versions.

    I would be interested in an open SDK to make animated background ! It would really kickass if SCE decided to do that

    I'd love to see an official WOHD / Fury theme too, but if we could build themes ourself and give it to SL this would be even better, it would be a way to thank them for the hours of enjoy we all have on this game

    If they are adding animated themes I wonder if they will allow user created animated themes. Not that I could create a better WOHD/FURY theme better then SL but I'm
    A) Cheap
    B) Doubting a WOHD theme will be dlable at 3.0 launch

    Also I would like WOHD avatars, but considering how SL already has HQ version of them made we shouldn't have to pay for them. They just have to shrink them and release them.

    I honestly wouldnt keep my hopes too high. While SL are incredible at what they do, (ie create the core gameplay games etc) the licensed products they make are sub-par.

    Take the Little Big Planet Wipeout-HD sackboy variations, they look like they wearing card-board boxes and straw hats or something.

    An C/C++ SDK for XMB-themes would be awesome. But this will likely never
    happen coz it rises the risk to exploit bad written programs (libs etc.) that may
    lead to hack the PS3, if that is even possible since the Hypervisor, the security
    layer of the PS3 in conjunction with the Cell processor, is a pretty tough one. A
    hardware Root-of-Trust, and being able to execute SPE programs in complete
    isolation
    , is a strength of the Cell processor. Up to my knowledge there is
    virtually no hardware of interest out there that wasn't hacked within the first or
    second year after release with the one exception of the PS3. I repeat; the PS3
    isn't hacked despite its out for over two years! That's a novelty and it shows
    that the IBM engineers were right to implement security straight into the Cell
    processor. There is a paper out there showing how to attack an AES cipher on
    a x86 architecture through one of its weakest spots, the cache hierarchy. In
    essence, software alone isn't enough to protect a system. Reading the papers
    about the Hypervisor (see IBM) really shows that they've started from square
    one to get it right. And that's simply the reason why the PS3 isn't hacked just
    yet after over two years of massive attacks from the best console hackers in
    the world. Even with linux and all the stuff, the Hypervisor tells what linux can
    see and what not. From my point of view, I think that the PS3 hardware can be
    protected at all time, but this doesn't mean that one cannot mess around with
    some buggy SDKs coming from Sony to produce something that may result in
    a denial-of-service when, for example, applying an odd theme or something.

    ProblemSolver: See this.
    They'll probably allow for animated ones too eventually.

    Yeah I know this stuff, but it's unlikely that we will get an SDK (an API, an
    Application Programmin Interface). But anyways, if ever, it goes the way
    like of today -- creating some pictures and animated-gifs etc. and assemble
    them together. An SDK would be better, an SDK for the whole XMB!

    You're right, I didn't think about this issue when I posted, so sad

    Wow, have any of you guys seen the 3.0 AFRIKA theme?

    I would really like to see a realtime 3d theme of a perpetual wipeout race from some unique camera angles, that would be amazing. YOU HEAR ME SL??? $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
