XMB Classic theme

Description[edit]

The Xross Media Bar (or XMB) is the graphical user interface for the PS3

The first Sony product with a XMB interface was the "Sony PSX" in 2003 (A hybrid of a PS2 + DVR player with recorder capabilityes only released in japan, see: PSX sony.co.jp and Wikipedia PSX), later was used by the PSP, then PS3 and some Bravia TV's

The word "Xross" (the "X" itself) is a reference to the alignment of the icons in rows and columns, each column is a category

System Software can be updated from the XMB settings by using an .PUP file

Installable Content (games or apps in .pkg format, and a few PS2 Discs), and contents in PS3 Discs, are "preloaded" by XMB using an small file (see: PARAM.SFO) this file is indexed in a database for efficiency purposes and fast access (see: XMB Database) and contains an identifyer that belongs to an specific XMB column (see: CATEGORY)

The dynamic wave on the background theme are more condensed into a 'ribbon' rather than the PSP's large waves, unselected icons shrink slightly and every selectable background color has been made a shade darker.

The PS3 includes the ability to store various master and secondary user profiles, manage and explore various photos format(.MPO since FW 3.70) with Photo Gallery or an ordinary musical/non-musical slideshow, rip audio CDs, rip iTunes AAC protected files, play and copy music and video files from the hard disk drive, an optional USB mass storage or Flash card, or an optical disc (Blu-ray Disc or DVD-Video).

Web browser, also supported with USB or BlueTooth keyboard, can download multiple file types but with some restrictions. Shortcut for launching website is also possible from TV/VIDEO collumn.

Since FW 4.30, trophies have been moved to the PlayStation Network category, in which Online shopping through the PlayStation Store is possible.

The Friends menu allows email with emoticons and attached picture features and video chat which requires an optional webcam (although the PlayStation Eye and the EyeToy are official webcams, most USB webcams will work).

The PS3 reserves 48 MB of RAM at all times for XMB functions, multi-task in ways such as listening to stored audio files while surfing the web, looking at pictures or playing games.


The XMB by default changes its color depending on the current month of the year and brightness depending on the time of the day (only in original and classic Themes). XMB color can be configured to "default" (changes every month) or one of the 12 color preconfigured for months, in XMB Settings column ---> Theme settings ---> Color

This change of color affects background, waves, all the icons, and other images like the "side menu". The color is applyed to the originall images like a "color filter" layer over them (note originall icons are semitransparent white to improve this effect)

The background images changes acordingly with the month. The file lines.qrc contains 24 textures_month_bg_*.dds images of 64x32 pixels. Each day has 2 different images for "day" and "night". See Qt Resource Container (QRC)

The color filter and brignhness values in this tables are not the exact values, is unknown how this filters are applyed, where are stored, and how works, see Talk:XMB for speculations

Virtual Shell (VSH)[edit]

The Virtual Shell encapsulates the XMB interface. It is loaded at: /dev_flash/vsh/module/vsh.self

And has numerous modules and descriptor files. The VSH does not directly load the XMB interface, it loads support modules to do that instead. The modules directly responsible for the XMB interface are in /dev_flash/vsh/module/ and include:

explore_category_friend.sprx
explore_category_game.sprx
explore_category_music.sprx
explore_category_network.sprx
explore_category_photo.sprx
explore_category_psn.sprx
explore_category_sysconf.sprx
explore_category_tv.sprx
explore_category_user.sprx
explore_category_video.sprx
explore_plugin.sprx
explore_plugin_ft.sprx
explore_plugin_game.sprx
explore_plugin_np.sprx

VSH Modules[edit]

All the .sprx files inside /dev_flash/vsh/module/. See: Plugin Interfaces page

Those modules are responsible for processing the XMB descriptor files (.XML format) used to generate the XMB interface. All of the above modules except for "explore_plugin_game.sprx" and "explore_plugin_np.sprx" contains a full list and location of XMB configuration files and the "root" entry which is to be loaded for the root of the category for each firmware type (CEX/CEX-Shop/DEX/ARC/TOOL).

It's important to note that explore_plugin.sprx is capable of managing most of the XMB categories, and thus, not all of these modules might be in use at any time. The explore_plugin.sprx is actually available to vsh.self and other modules through the xmb_plugin.sprx and xmb_ingame.sprx See XMBML module-action

Modules Resources[edit]

All the .rco files inside /dev_flash/vsh/resource/. See: Resource Container (RCO) page

RCOXML Configuration Files[edit]

These are XML files which defines the visual structure of XMB, are embedded inside all .rco files. See: RCOXML Structure page

There are 2 modes used by XMB: "XMB Main" and "XMB In-game", and other modes that replaces XMB like the "Coldboot", "Gameboot", or "Impose"

XMB Main (xmb plugin)[edit]

The XrossMediaBar after the coldboot, with full functions of all the items/icons displayed

  • Managed by: xmb_plugin.sprx / xmb_plugin_normal.rco

XMB In-Game (xmb ingame)[edit]

Introduced in firmware 2.40, available inside games by a short press of Dualshock PS button button

Is a reduced version of the XrossMediaBar where most of the icons are "dummies" that triggers a message like: "to use this function you need to quit the game and return to Main XMB, want to quit?". The only items that are really enabled are the ones usefull to use inside games, like savegames view, trophies view, gamedata view, friends, chat, etc...

There are also some icons, options, or settings that only can appear in this mode (never displayed "XMB Main" mode)... like screenshots icon in the photo colum (when enabled), or some settings specific for emulators (in settings column, things like resolution, filters, etc...)

  • Managed by: xmb_ingame.sprx / xmb_ingame.rco
  • Note XMB In-Game is inneficient in concept, because displays items that are dummies not needed and cant be used, in some games the loading of XMB In-Game is laggy (specially the loading of savegames and trophies submenues)

Impose Menu (impose plugin)[edit]

Available in "Main XMB" and inside games by a short press (under 2.40 firmware) or long press (over 2.40 firmware) of Dualshock PS button button

Allows to asign controllers to players, view battery levels of controllers, quit game, etc... http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2008/01/ps3-in-game-menu.jpg

  • Managed by: impose_plugin.sprx / impose_plugin.rco

ColdBoot (custom render plugin)[edit]

The old animation when PS3 boots (from 1.00 up to 2.60 firmware)

  • Managed by: custom_render_plugin.sprx / custom_render_plugin.rco

ColdBoot2 (custom render plugin)[edit]

The new animation when PS3 boots (from 2.70 up to 4.75 firmware) , associated with coldboot.raf

  • Managed by: custom_render_plugin.sprx / custom_render_plugin.rco

GameBoot (custom render plugin)[edit]

The animation when a game boots

  • Managed by: custom_render_plugin.sprx / custom_render_plugin.rco

OtherBoot (custom render plugin)[edit]

Unknown, seems associated with OtherOS

  • Managed by: custom_render_plugin.sprx / custom_render_plugin.rco

Languages[edit]

Language files are stored inside Resource Container (RCO) files, are loaded based on a user setting stored in XRegistry.sys

XMB can be configured to display the texts in several languages, and every language uses a language code internally to identify it, this same language codes are used in contents that contains several languages availabes (like games, trophy installers, themes, etc...).

See: Languages page

Fonts[edit]

All the .ttf files in dev_flash/data/font/

The fonts are loaded by the rcoxml files (rcoxml files contains font definitions like color, sizes, type, etc...) and based on a user setting stored in XRegistry.sys

Font can be configured in XMB -> settings -> Theme to "original", "rounded", and "pop". See: XMB Fonts page

XMBML Configuration Files[edit]

These are XML files which outlines the logic of XMB categories. All of the XMBML files are included in all firmwares for all PS3 models, and are located in path: /dev_flash/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/

For more information about the structure of this files see: XMBML Structure, XMBML Functions and XMBML Coding Examples pages.

  • Notes:
    • VSH heavily regulates the Setting Category and the .XML file is only used by when accessing the XMB "in-game", even then it restricts what parts of the .XML are actually shown. It is not possible to modify the Settings Category to any effect by editing the .XML configuration file
