If you're never going to use it, don't download it. Unless it's compulsory then that's pretty stupid.

Don't be a troll.

I don't like Playstation Home yet there's an icon for it on the XMB. does it bother me? Not at all.

If you think the XMB is cluttered you should take a look at the Xbox 360 dashboard.

"Another new trick is the ability so sing directly into the PS3′s camera."

Isn't that funny that they're doing completely opposite to Microsoft? I mean, Kinect is now mostly promoted to be used as a mic even though everybody gets a headset with the console which would perfectly do that work for games like ME3.

Not fond of it's placement on the XMB but i'm not going to lose sleep over it.

If your neighbours use it you might...

Being able to use the PSEye is a very good move (no pun intended). One thing I was certain of -- but it hasn't happened yet -- is that the PSEye would be included with every PS3 as standard. This just might make them consider it. Not only does it incentify people to buy songs, but it also cuts the cost of buying the MOVE set up.

Could this be the first indication of that?

I can't find it.

You need to do a firmware update to see it.
It might not be available in your country/region if you have already updated and can't see it.

Is it really out already? I updated the firmware and it is not there. Also I though this article about SIngStar was more of a 'coming soon' thing than a 'out now' thing.

I updated to 4.30 last night. I'm in US but i have an EU account.
KUV1977  +   1208d ago
I'm in EU and couldn't find it. I don't think it is a region problem. I think it really isn't out yet.

EDIT: Nevermind. It's straight under the game disc under games. I didn't see it. It's out already and I can totally see how it annoys people who don't play it to have that icon floating there.
