Yes Sony and Playstation needs to get their Social Network together. I am a die-hard Playstation fan but PSN seems disconnected. I think the next gen PSN should be as connected as cell phones are in every way. I am impressed how 360 grab the Social aspect and ran with it. Sony just needs to do the same Next gen.

The only feature PSN should have that XBL has... is being able to directly jump in to your friends games. Aside from that, I'm good.

Yes. It amazes me how close minded PS3 fans are. There's no doubt M$ is killing SONY in this arena & Home is a POS & everyone knows this.

While PSN gives coupons, M$ is giving SmartGlass! SmartGlass is the start of Next Gen(XBOX 720), given to us This Gen. Those continuing to keep the blinders on, SONY will give you nothing.

DLB is right, hes the only PS3 super fan that wants whats best for the PS3. Most SONY fans keep their heads in the sand.

I think the new ps store is a really good start.

No offense, but I don't give a crap about cross game chat or most social features. I don't want to have a convo with someone while I'm enjoying my games. If I want to talk to you, I'll call you or send u a message on FB chat.

Obviously there are people out there who care about things like this, I just personally don't.

I agree with you, but I do think it's generally difficult to communicate through the messages in the xmb. I always just call a friend over the phone to set up a game, but it gets to be a pain when you're calling every disconnect, or when you leave a game. I just find that most the time if I send a message on the xmb, there's a good chance someone will miss it, and then there's no notification, or that frankly it's just a pain in the ass to respond. I don't know what the answer to it is. I feel like cross-game chat may actually be really invasive - though there could be a "Busy" button so if you want a private session, you don't receive calls?

im pretty sure that most people, if they had the option, would love those features, but it's fine for now, the ps vita already has cross game chat, even nintendo wiiu has cross game video chat, so yeah, the ps4 will have it so calm down.

btw, i hate the new ps store, it's freakin slow and i miss the old store already.

Next gen, in my opinion, will be much more about social integration, making gaming a more connected experience. In this respect the PSN has plenty of room to improve.

Dedicating a respectable amount of memory to the OS will be a good place to start. But I'd say that's a given.

Yeah... that's nice, but I usually have my PC or Vita on or on hand when I'm playing my PS3. And in the HIGHLY unlikely event that neither is near, my phone is. I have other devices that take care of my social needs; my video game console should take care of my gaming.

The consoles could learn from the Steam client.

The 360 menu is slow, cluttered and full of ads.

The XMB is fast but lacks some basic functionality.

Anyone else unsettled by Uncharted 3 playing on his TV with Kinect on top? No?...Just me then???

Anyway, I...don't care about PSN becoming more social. That's what Home is for. Keep all of that crap on Xbox and WiiU. I don't want any dancing avatars, ads, or whatever fluff ms and N are trying to sell.

The only thing that really needs improvement is with the console itself and not PSN. Being able to multitask like the 360 would be nice. Faster downloads and installs while downloading would be nice. The 360 can download and install games while idle or "sleeping" much like the PS3 does, but it's a PSN+ feature, which is BS.

As for cross game chat...if I were 15 and didn't own a phone or any other means of communicating, I guess that feature would be nice. Now that I'm in my 30s, I could give a s*** about talking to someone playing a game I'm not.

im sure its being worked on as we speak.. If we can think of whats wrong with it & what needs fixing, im sure they thought of it too.. Judging by what ive seen with the new store, i see a brilliant & new modernized UI coming to orbis as well as vita.. They plan to have an ecosystem as well so im sure there will be a PSN social site similar to facebook across all devices.. Also access to their software n store through gaikai or other apps..

I think the PSN has surprisingly a lot to offer. It really has improved over the years. I think the only thing it needs is more free avatars.

Meh, it plays my games online, that's all i care about, sure cross game chat would be pretty nice, and they could iron out the whole trophy syncing situation but i really don't care that much, it ain't no game breaker to me
