This will go over great in the fighting community.

Take over the controller? That really sucks, why? What game is truly that hard where someone needs to take over for you. How much spam do you imagine you'll get when people are constantly trying to take over your gameplay or troll your game with comments.

A Social network? It's official Sony is trying to be the new Facebook.

Pretty sure they mentioned it could be enabled/disabled.

Im not a fan of this social network stuff either.

Edit:I thought this was the complete breakdown of the UI?

I agree to an extent. I think your overreacting about the taking over controller thing. Hopefully a friend cant take over during MP or earn a trophy. Also kind off takes away from YOUR experience... But its optional. I wont complain about what someone else might want since I can make sure it wont intrude on my experience.

But the social network aspect... Why? I would have been cool with a way to link our PSN account to YouTube to coincide with the share button but strengthening the Facebook connection to gaming? What does that offer to my gaming experience?

haha you'll obviously have to request someone to take over any idiot with any amount of common sense would understand that. The trolls are out in full force after seeing how good the presentation was.
maniacmayhem  +   823d ago
Or they will have to send you requests after they watch how bad you're playing at the game. Which is why I said the amount of spam....oh wait...you're a sony fanboy with their skirt over their heads waiting for a Sony Friday night cuddle fest.

My bad, disregard what I said.

First thing that U thought of what when Nintendo was showing Zombie U and the dude was like hey Grampa I am stuck on this level can you help me out.
rainslacker  +   823d ago
They also said that it'd be integrated with your friends list or facebook, so it's unlikely you'll get random people trying to do that. I'd imagine your friends are a lot better than idiots on the internet, and I personally wouldn't open up my profile to anyone not on my list.

The controller reveal just took me off the purchase list of the ps4. I hate that controller design.
stage88  +   823d ago
Yes that makes sense. Let go of the an awesome beast of a console because you don't like the controller. If only there were other companies that make third party controllers....

They could have at least given us a/some short footage hints/silhouettes of how the console would look like..

..now the speculation continues..

I do like the control pad very mucho!, and Bungie's upcoming game Destiny on the PS4.

I can't understand how these people can talk about the ps4 knowing you well enough to predict your next purchase as though that's desirable. PS Store is your friend, it wants to help you! : E

It's not unlike Amazon, or Best Buy, or GameStop, or XBL, or many other retailers already do. The difference here is that it will actually be able to tell which games you play most, and for how long, to make recommendations that are more accurate. It's a good strategy for selling games. It can also make games that you may otherwise miss get some attention from you, which to me, is desirable.

This looks like the online part. I wanna see the OS. Are they dumping the XMB or are they evolving it or making a new one entirely? E3 will be the next event to look to.
Omar91  +   823d ago
This was my question as well. I'm hoping they do not keep this interface as the final version. It reminds me of windows 8 clutter interface.

Also is it just me or is having some take control of your game and virtually see you play a game kind of creepy? lol
r21  +   823d ago
Im pretty sure we can disable that feature. Hopefully it isnt always on thing.
