PlayStation 4 has been doing great on the market, there's been some awesome games released for it and although the software on the console is good there's some features that would make it a lot better.
There's no reason PS4 can't play PS1 and PS2 Classics off of PSN. What better way to celebrate the brand's 20th western anniversary than to enable such a feature
Yeah I want to play my PS1 games I bought on my PS3 years ago. Some places like Europe just got some PS1 classics like Spyro a year or so before the PS4 reveal and now we'll have to wait all over again. It's a beyond a joke to be honest. I feel like they are scared that people will just download them instead of using PS Now.
"There's no reason PS4 can't" Well there is, Sony want to make money on PSNow so I doubt they will allow it. Its not a very good reason, but it is a reason. I would like to see a Steam style wish list, you can add games to it and you get alerts when they are on sale.
PS Now is still in beta right? I imagine after Microsoft's backwards comparability announcement that might have shaken things up a bit, perhaps we might see a better subscription concept for PS Now?
I doubt it, they sank a lot of money into Giakai and its tech, I'm pretty sure they said they would add PS2 and PS1 games in the future. The prices do need fixing.
PS Now still isn't realistic. Besides turn based RPGs, I don't know what kinda games people can play effectively with 300ms+ delay.
It's probably going to be another 2 years before the ps4 is fully featured out on things that should have been standard from lunch. I want to see Sony add things that are out of the box, nothing anybody would expect.
He really likes the word awesome, 11 times in just 5 minutes.
I agree with some of those requests. I'd also like individual notifications for each of my friends. I have a few "psn friends" but I don't really bother with them unless we are playing the same game, so I don't really need to know they are in a party. However my actual friends and family I would like to know when they are online, when they are in a party and such, so being able to turn off and on notifications by friend would be cool. Again folders would be cool I agree with that. With the "what's new" just again allow people to choose who they want to see news about.
Being able to pin games to the dashboard, that would be lovely.
Yeah you mean like being able to lock them in a certain position? Knowing it's always gonna be Wolfenstein, TLoU, Minecraft, GTA in that order everytime would be nice indeed.
Support for built-in subtitles in media player please XD
i want to change the lightbar on the ps4 console
When using the web browser, when the triangle button is pressed it should send the users directly to the address bar, and not the search bar. A voice command feature for the DS4 that works whenever the controller is on, I would like to say any of the following into the camera or attached microphone even if its to another controller, "Playstation Scream", "Playstation chirp", "Playstation Whistle", etc. Which would cause all of the controllers that are on or active to make a sound, so that it is easier to locate them, as long as they are within the reach of the systems wireless connection(more like a goto feature within that moment in time, could be a power save feature) An option to see how much time is left on a video/screen recording, and also choose size, screen location and opacity of this feature. The 8 person video chat feature thats present on the PS3, dont understand why that was left out. What happened to video chatting while gaming, not sure if that was an unreleased feature or someone lied to me. More space for online storage, every so often I have to delete files, 1gb is not enough especially with how big these save files are getting, and they seem to get larger in proportion to the games that they are from, and this generation is looking like its going to be full with open worlds and even open universe games (No Mans Sky, and I think "Ion") Oh and to appear offline, or prompted to choose to go online at the sign in screen.
I'm not sure if the video chat whilst gaming is a thing.
one personal addition i'd like to see, is the ability to 'ask for permission to view friend's playing session.' If i see a friend online playing something, sometimes i'd like to be able to watch him/her play without requesting them to stop their session, and start up a stream. Instead, a little notice would pop up in the corner "JOHNX would like to view your sessions, Accept or decline".... OR you could even have a setting that would enable anyone to view your session without asking. Like a 'always allow' setting.
This was how I originally thought PS4 was going to work. You were always streaming, you didn't have to go through some 3rd party companies and all that jazz.
