It seems that with the new update today that Sony did change a few minor things. The main thing changed is the new appearance of the Platinum Trophies. Thanks to Multi-Gaming we have a nice comparison shot between the old crown looking trophy and the new crystal styled one.
The other thing that seems to be improved is the speed of the in-game XMB. It still isn’t as smooth as the normal XMB, but it at least seems to be faster than before when it had a good deal of noticeable lag. With time I think Sony will continue to improve on the in-game XMB, but it’s nice to see the current strides they have taken.
