clearly no-one does any research before posting these things. Even though the source is different, it's not enough of change to warrent a separete news post - it's an alternate source to this

Agree, Engadget is just qouting the official Playstation Blog (from the story yesterday). A mod should remove this post.

I bet they don't mention 1080i support on all games do they?

Qbanboi3896d ago

He's right. There were like two story about this yasterday.

seriously how hard is it to implement a feature they had up and running 'supposedly' on a ps3 two years ago?

i saw the presentation where they showed it,but two years later were still waiting like lemmings.

and what was with those fvcking xmb t-shirts?sony act like there doing us a favour,they need to stop that arrogant thinking creeping back because it very nearly lost them the console war this generation!

sony act like its the biggest thing since sliced bread the xmb,360 owners have enjoyed this since dat dot.

sony get your act together or lose loyal customers

sick of it.

SI7VER3896d ago

and go ahead and sell your PS3. Your obviously looking for features that are available else ware... So instead of polluting these boards w/ your negative posts...take action and get what will seemingly make you happy.


actas1233896d ago

in game xmb is way overrated. Its not really worth that fuss.

MURKERR3896d ago (Edited 3896d ago )

i am a gamer who has purchased my system of choice with promises that were not even said but shown to me via a presentation which infuenced my choice of console!

because i buy i product if im not happy about something i shouldnt speak up?i should sit quiet like a sheep and lick a$$?

its a free country my console of choice is a ps3,im not happy with something ill have my say if you you dont like words said about sony dont read it

you didnt buy my console I DID,its like buying a house with no windows you would complain right?or would you just sit there with a blanket freezing your a$$ off?

thats the difference between me and you my friend i speak my mind i say positive things about sony but ill also say negative if its justified im not biased

By adding additional features which aren't available out of the box, they are doing you a favour.

SI7VER's right, if its such a big deal to you, if its such a gamebreaker, if its really keeping to up at night pacing, then go buy a console that already has it.

I agree with one thing. You are free to speak your mind, just like I'm doing now.

SI7VER3896d ago

Before you bought your PS3 did you do research to find out if it had all of the features that your looking for out of the box?


blacsheep3896d ago (Edited 3896d ago )

get your act together

MURKERR3896d ago (Edited 3896d ago )

just because ive vented my anger at sony,please dont try to be funny about 'pacing about at night', sorry my comments seemed to have hit a raw spot with your dedication to sony give sony my apologies buy some flowers on my behalf if you want.

ps3 is my console of choice reason being features that were promised and the gaming library approaching,now bathjy please use common sense why would i jump to another console that has features the ps3 should ALREADY have if the ps3 has the games i want just because sony have pi$$ed me off?why do you care so much?.

Si7ver- i bought my ps3 day it came out over a year ago in the UK (which was all together £510 including game and extra contrioller,and for that price xmb should have been here by now,it was promised).those xmb t-shirts just made me snap,i applaud alot of things sony have done but this is ridiculous having to exit a game to talk to friends etc, its beyond a joke and i cant believe TWO years down the road im still waiting like many other ps3 owners,my original post was a bit over the top but its sheer frustration mate

fenderputty3895d ago (Edited 3895d ago )

Aggressive here but, I do essentially agree. I'm not like freaking and wanting to sell my console or anything but, Sony should have had some of these features here from the beginning. The fact that they have so many different media resources at their disposal means that VOD should be a rather easy undertaking for them. Ingame XMB might be a little more difficult to implement. I'm not to sure what technical issues are holding them up. Still ... this was something shown to us and promised to us. 2 years is getting a little out of hand. The inshirt xmb thing was rather annoying to say the least.


Stop being an idiot. I've had the console since launch in NA. This was stuff that was supposed to be there from the get go. I saw all those 2005 demonstrations. I heard all the 4D talk as well. I love my PS3 as much as the next guy but, Sony really needs to stop dragging their feet here. 1.5 -2 years waiting for a feature that should have come right away is rather tiresome. As a consumer we should expect these things. Especially when you're paying an arm and a leg for the system.

"because i buy i product if im not happy about something i shouldnt speak up?i should sit quiet like a sheep and lick a$$?"

N4G comments zone isn´t the best place to spread your disagreement, for real bro.

The guys with SONY´s VIP tags like Kaz Hirai, ARE NOT REAL. (kakakaka^^)

If u are really pissed of about this go to your nearest SONY attention center, start a revolution or do some terrorist stuff.

juuken3895d ago

Seriously, can't this company get a break?

They've gone through enough bashing since 2007. The PS3 is complex technology. I'm sure they're working as hard as they can to get this stuff out. Seriously, if you have no faith in Sony or you're so pissed off about it, then sell your PS3. I have a PS3 and I'm happy with it. I would like those things to come out as well but it's not the end of civilization as we know it today.

Take a chill pill already.

Sony, also enforce integrated PSN services with the developers, please

Superiorrior3895d ago

Part of Sony's policy is dev freedom, same with the likes of user created content, Microsoft has been under fire for there strict policies, and then you want Sony to enforce it when you really don't?
