The ONE person that created the XMB


Did you know there's only ONE person that created the UI for both the PS3 and PSP? Well, just look at Yasuhiro Yamanaka's LinkedIn profile. According to the profile, Yamanaka has "designed PSP and PS3 User Interface all by myself." Wow. Not even a little bit of help?

He's not only in charge of making the UI for PlayStation owners. "I am also in charge of localization of the on-screen messages." So next time you get a PSN message, or you unlock a Trophy, remember that Yamanaka is the guy responsible for what they say.
