Previous rumour reports of the PlayStation Network getting a huge overhaul in April would appear true as SCEA's director of product development confirms: "you will see a pretty big change in the PlayStation Network in the early part of April".
Great news, im really bored of the current layout, it looks like some lack luster website.
Lots of things to look forward to in April, ill add this to the list!
Cheers contributor : )
sony are pulling out all the stops to give as gamers a true next-gen experience
sony nearly lost this war and that has shaken them up into providing the best service they possibly can
kudos to microsoft for providing the competition which i believe has made sony a better company in regards to listening to gamers.
360 had some of the best games in 2007 sony cannot afford to sit back because microsoft are in this for the long haul!
I agree, kudos to Microsoft because they have put up some ace competition to Sony and forced them to begin listening to gamers again to give us the kind of experience we want. Its a good sign for the future and further proof that a single console future would be bad for all gamers. Competition breeds innovation so a strong 360 makes the PS3 innovate to keep up and vice versa.
really glad they are updating the interface, the current one doesnt please me, it somehow seems very lastgen compared to iTunes. Still i hope they'll get RE 2 and RE 1 on the European and U.S. PS-Store soon. :D
Let us hope that with the new interface (WOO!) comes some better quality and quantity content (WOOHOO!).
Not to be a mean but i would like to tell you that a kid at school seas kudos alot and now people call him a homo.
And i think it is a good idea for sony to change things for the better
Thanks JB491, you have really been able to put the article into perspective there. Its a real bonus for this entire site that individuals with such a depth of insight into the human condition and knowledge of the English language are around here to help us mere mortals make sense of the world. How misguided I am, saying kudos means you are gay. I'm so glad that feckless school kids are just as smart as they have always been.
I hope they put up more content for us Europeans.
I bet we won't even get the 'new look' store for a least a few months after the US.
MGs for the PS1 would be an amazing hit if they realised it over the PSN - especially the the anticipation of MGS4 - c'mon Sony - you know you want to!!!
I've put up with that bland layout for...well more than a year now. Can't wait to see how they tweak it.
totally agree 100%
maybe they may offer some movie and music downl;oads with Sony owning movie studios and music groups and all
Hopefully they add some serious content though. More classic games please!
Sounds pretty fun, but I hope we get a update with this too because I have been getting dull of 2.10(If I'm not mistaking). When they say early April I hope it's the first week of April. The Genius has spoken.
comes new content. Don't fail me now.
worldwide releases of content but I doubt it since Japan is so ahead of NA and EU.
some ps network cards would be nice.
Cool ... the flood of good things starts soon.
I live in Australia. Anyone one else have this issue? it used to work
ITs a new look that will hopefully make me smile and be very fun to use and show off. I hope they start releasing some surprise games that are clearly blu ray quality games that cannot be done on any other system in the world. Its time to push the ps3 to its limits!
new look + dowloadable movies= april
I just hope that the UI changes from a typical web page to something more controller friendly.
So the upcoming store is unified or still split into different regions?
Good stuff the Playstation store seems so bland and so normal, I am excited for this overhaul.
do you agree? I know you do..
My favorite words of the system wars: DEBUNKED CONFIRMED FACE IT GET OVER IT DEAL WITH IT EXCLUSIVE!!!!
Good to hear, the current layout is atrocious.
Aint that the truthiness?
Although it gets the job done, it really is an unorganized website when it all comes down to it. I hope there are MAJOR changes and everything is much better organized. I'm sick of seeing brand new, great games that just came out a week ago suddenly dissapear for a bit (Pixeljunk Monsters). The whole thing is just really bad and can't wait for this.
A *serious* overhall please with chat/msgs in game & more streamlined like xbl.
Everything is being lined up for april because of home.Ingonito is releasing it's new patch april.Psn overhaul in april.I wouldn't be surprised if we had a firmware update in the beginning of april for all the new content that we're going to be getting.This is going to be a hell of a year for ps3 owners. Oh and buddy i don't know if you've been paying attention or not, but in-game xmb won't hit until this summer.Sometime around the launch of MGS4
IN GAME MESSAGING,
Its got to be weird knowing that not only will your xbox console will fail at any given moment but that there is a Big dark shadow lurking behind the scenes that is the ps3. Xbots i know you guys hear that the ps3 will be doing everything that your machine is currently doing and according to us ps3 gamers 2008 is the beginning of all the greatness. Shoot it really doesnt start until ps3 gets grand theft auto. I mean think about it ps3 has about 5 games and thats it, that means Sony just started to get crazy with it. And by my experience as a former xbot games and updates just keep on coming. Only it was different as a xbot because I knew at the end of 2007 that the xbox has peaked and ill just be playing the same games all over again with lil to no improovement in graphics and online gaming. But of course xbots know that already they just want to be known as one of the first in helping shape an online experience and for that I am grateful to all those xbots who represent the developers and Demand greatness from xbox live. As a ps3 gamer i am glad that xbox gamers are just a FOCUS GROUP for my Playstation 3. Have fun while it last and your pockets are empty, and you have ignored your family, and lost your girlfreind and your waiting for your replacement and you are downloading hd movies for $8-$10 dollars a pop and you come to n4g to find that sony has stolen another idea from XBOX360.
yea in game XMb is in summer, but this does not mean this is going to be hell what are u thinking people allways think of the bad side... think how BIg this is gunna be for the PSN and the users this is all 100% GREAT. dont be like well bla bla bla the bad things about it... bullsh*t! because ANYTHING has a problem but people allways bring out the bad and make a bigger deal about it. just wait for it and ull be happy
thank f.ck for that it is so bland at the mo,cant wait
