PlayStation Blog Share requests – did Sony deliver?

Back in 2010 Sony launched PlayStation.Blog Share, a means for gamers to submit ideas on changes and improvements they’d like to see made to the PlayStation platform. It allowed people to vote up or down suggestions they liked or hated and it helped the Blog team to see which ideas were the most popular so they could pass them on to the relevant people with the hope of actioning them. Handy Tips takes a retrospective look at the most popular idea requests, those that were delivered and those that failed to materialise.

I'll say they did. One of the top request was ingame chat. Well Sony took ingame chat and put it on steroids with the share function and passing the controller to watching someone play a game you don't even have. Sign me up.

'Only with Just Cause 2'

Not quite, there were quite a few titles that allowed in-game recording, PixelJunk Eden is another one.

mushroomwig1958d ago

What's with the disagrees? Just Cause 2 wasn't the only game to support the feature, jeez.

uncharted 2 did as well. I don't remember if 3 did

I submitted a MKV support request on the blog when it was live, not sure if anyone beat me to it though, probably did. Anyway I would really like MKV support on PS4 and yes, it's because I pirate some movies. Before you break out the noose please be aware that I'm a very keen supporter of cinema (i have one of those subscription passes) and if I like a movie I WILL buy it on Bluray.

MKV is not just for pirated content.

Chaostar1958d ago

Yeah, i know, but it's the reason I wanted it personally. That and being able to rip the blurays I already have to MKV for convenience.

I'm not literate of the inner working of formats but, isn't MKV just a container for every other format under the sun? Wouldn't supporting MKV basically mean everything that MKV supports? Which is almost everything.

Chaostar1958d ago (Edited 1958d ago )

To be honest I'm not 100% sure, you could be right, all I know for certain is that a lot of downloaded HD movies and TV are in the MKV format. I'll just go google it and update this comment...

"The Matroska Multimedia Container is an open standard free container format, a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture, or subtitle tracks in one file"


Sephiroushin1958d ago

Yes the MKV is a container but that doesn't mean the console must support every codec in order to read MKV; In case you didn't know the MP4 is also a container; has you seen some MP4 video that do not run audio/video on your PS3? That's because the PS3 do not support the codecs inside that MP4, so what really matter is the codec inside that container ... There must be other reasons as why the PS3 does not support MKV and I dont think its just because MKV can hold anything, MP4 can too, in fact the MP4 can render faster than MKV but videos has less quality ...

Anyways, I also hope next gen consoles support MKV.
