Tutorial Videos Coming To PS3 XMB

With Xbox Lives new update this week, Sony has become aware that it will have to address the XMB’s clutter of icons, which may be befuddling mainstream consumers.

Sony has decided it will create “It only does everything” videos. PSN director Susan Panico said that Sony is currently “creating educational videos that will be a great welcome kit for people that are coming to the PS3 and the PlayStation Network.

“Which aim to “really walk them through all the advantages you get from the PlayStation Network,” including the store. The videos “will answer questions like, ‘How do I have Netflix movies stream on my PS3?’ And it will certainly talk about original content available,” Panico noted, referring to PSN productions like The Tester and Pulse.

“That’s something that’s really important to us — to make sure people understand from the get-go how to find all this great content.”

While many of the details are still being ironed out, the how-to videos will appear both on the web and on the XMB. “Primarily, it’s going to be content that you find very easily on PlayStation.com, as well as on the console itself,” Panico said, though “we haven’t decided where it’s going to live on the XMB.”
