I think it will succeed. It sounds like it's being directly integrated into the website and isn't some kind of ridiculous gimmick.

move over miiverse.. This looks much more appealing

Miiverse is an open forum. Sony's going in a completely different direction with this.

idk man.. It looked a lot like facebook but for PSN communities.. Miiverse is a forum but i dont see why sony wouldnt create different game rooms for those chat sessions making it the same thing but without the lil cutesy miis n crayon drawings.. Wait, u can draw with the touchpad.. so ya, same thing i think but enhanced with videos, real pictures of yourself, trophies, bios, etc..

MiiVerse is a success now this ps4 thing who know's.

May i also say that wiiu with Nintendo TVii allows u to pause tv and save screen shots and post them on twitter/facebook/or MiiVerse ?
In other words if i'm watching F1 on my Tivo i can save screen captures and post them on any of the big social networks.look it up they also have spoke about video downloads as well only the interface on TVii looks impressive compared to ps4.

Does ps4 have a TVii service making watching Tivo,Netflix,Lovefilm,Amazon instant,Sky,Normal tv,ect a better more streamlined service ??? i didn't think so.

Yeah they do, it's called PlayTV and will no doubt make an appearance on PS4. It's been out for years on PS3 and I use it every single day. Not only does it allow you to set recordings and play, pause and rewind live tv, it also allows you to chat with anyone watching the same channel. It's very social. It can even schedule the PS3 to switch itself on, record a programme, then turn itself off.

Sorry if I've embarrassed you.

CES 2013 Sony showed this...

TV SideView is a new application for tablets — it's a second screen app that shows you what is available to view on TV, and navigate to what's on.

So yes it does have a chance of having TVii like service as well. Possibly on the Vita or phone app in the future.

Expect a lot of useless Facebook integration next gen on every platform.

Yea I wish they would forget Facebook and just make it all part of the gaming network on the PS4 that way all focus would be on gaming and not some big social crazy website.

Your right at least on WiiU us gamers have a social network for all things gaming :) un-biased reviews straight from the gamers playing the actual games is a big plus for me,no more fanboy reviews.

That is the thing. This new PSN/SEN is a dedicated Social Network for the Sony community. Yes, there is twitter, FB integration but the are turning the PS4 into a gaming hub for the entire community. I think it's neat. Everything is interactive, social and streamed line. I think this is a good way of going. I am really excited to see the new UI and how it all will flow together.

I hope at E3 they talk about home or at least mention they will support it with the PS4. I don't use it, but if its integrated into the system, it would load faster and become what most of us expected from home.

Imagine using home and your Gameplay would be streamed in a specific room or your house.
