PS2 Media Center. –
It'd be cool to bable to chip your PS2 and drop a nice phat hard drive in it. Then load up a watered down Windows Media Center interface (more so the media center aspect and not so much the windows aspect.) and play media either on the hard drive or on a computer on the network (IE my current computer)
have it set up with menus like
Music (read form defaul directory, network directory, CD rom bay)
Video (read form defaul directory, or network directory, DVD rom bay)
Pictures (again as above)
Games (HDD *directory*, Media bay CD/DVD homebrew etc)
Network (search the network/access the net, SYNC)
Update (chip firmware, media center software update)
Setup (add remove features/ software)
of course completely user made the looks and feel of media center with a nice PS2 touch)
sofar two nice media center-eaque layouts is mediacenter and neros little media center) actually the PSP menu setup is rather nice..
as par the SYNC feature lets say you run SNES homebrew on your PS2 and you have SNES homebrew on your psp you cna plug the PSP in via USB and sync the home brew and other documents from one to the other.
Just random thoughts I've had.
