Just to get the ball rolling, I've attached my submission.

edit: added a video icon as well. Here's a preview of both - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnX2Lf6YZik
video icons only work in the game category though

and just for giggles, an avatar sized animated gif

exciting that Showtime 4 is coming!! It's funny that the other day I thought that Showtime needed a new icon. I'll of course try some ideas as I did the one to be replaced. But looking at the ones so far the competition is going to be tough!!
Good luck everyone!

I'm going to replace that youtube video either later tonight or possibly tomorrow (depends if I fall asleep waiting for it to upload)
I expanded upon the idea a bit and added a few more examples. I still have some more but my computer's age and lack of speed caused me to opt against making them.

Then maybe I'll put together some video icons (ICON1.PAM) when I find the time.

I have to agree, this is great work. Me being me can see little tweaks that could be made. Might make it better or worse but still I would have to try them :)

Straighten up the logo, being slightly off doesn't look right to me.
How does the logo look without the grey background? Also the text 'media player' might look a little small when placed on the XMB screen.

Well done again for a great logo!!!
