Yeah, people on the STF channel calls the new effect "the fire".
I'm not sure why they changed it, the previous effect was well-liked, it was that interaction (gear) icon that people hated.
The fire replaces the gear, that's it as far as I can tell. I haven't decided if I really like the fire, but I didn't like the gear, so this is probably an improvement in my books.
Personally, I don't think either are needed - just the shimmering effect of the object itself (which is still there) was enough for me.

People did ask to get rid of the gear thing though, which they did with this change, and replaced it with something...a little less obtrusive? Maybe? It's a step anyway.

Ok i don't like it for consoles, i much prefer to have the yellow glow without the icon or the beams of light/flames.. you have to be absolutly blind as hell to miss any of the versions we have gone through.
