In an article review hosted on Yahoo.com written by By Matt Slagle. He writes:
"The PlayStation Network is painfully behind Nintendo Co.'s Virtual Console for the Wii and
Xbox Live for Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360."
a moron im sorry, it hurts to read his article , i feel embarresed for him. way to jump on the " its cool to hate PS3" bandwagon buddy.
YAHOO has been going down hill and this is not going to help the cause.
Didnt read it, dont care, whatever!
If he would have praised PSN you guys would like it. It's okay to have other dislike what you like.
The thing I don't get about the previous comments is that this guy has legitimate complaints. Would you care please to disprove or offer another take? Is connecting the ps3 to a wireless network easier than he suggests? Is he lying about having to start downloads all over if they get interrupted? Are you really stuck watching the ps3 download without being able to continue surfing? Is he lying about not being able to play the classic games but instead you can only upload them to the psp? Honestly, I'm not trying to start a fight I'm just asking. I don't have a ps3. But I've heard from other sources that everything this guy is saying is true. If its not, by all means I agree he is a moron. But if he's telling the truth, why are you getting worked up about a review that calls it like it is? He goes on to talk about how great the games are looking, it's not like he's calling it junk. If what he's saying is true, I'd have to say I agree with him, the PSN needs a bit of work.
You have to remember that the PSN is still in its infancy. Background downloading, downloadable PS1 classics running on PS3, and other features like the Home feature will be added in an oncoming update.
behind wii's VC? wtf last time i checked u cant play ANY games online on the wii
hmmm everyone hateing on the ps3 but when word starts getting out thats it is an amazing system, the people that critizized it will be the first ones to get 1
that's the dumb crap I'm talking about!! every time someone says something about the PS3, Sony boys get all bent out of shape!! now yahoo is going downhill!! I heard Chevrolet, Ford,Wal-mart,an McDonald's all dislike the PS3, so I guess this means there all going down hill also!! come on dude beforeal. take your head out of Sonys A55 an get a grip!!
I see Sony fanboys didn't like what this guy said about Sony's online service. So you would feel a lot better if he would have said, Sony online service is the best online game service in the world, it makes xbox live look like childs play. I blow xbox live over the water on every aspect. Not for nothing but you should be happy people like these give the service a bad name for the simple fact that Sony will do their best to improve it and to match xbox live. Obviously Sony fanboys love the service and see no room for improvement, poor real gamers if the PS3 future would depends on Sony fanboys which are happy no matter what they get. I say burn them all! Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo! These kind of flame is what make company improve.
Most of the features he's complaining about will be implemented in the 2.0 update + whatever else they.
As for classic titles, at the moment they may be limited but there's a huge PS1 collection waiting to be uploaded.
Um, side note is an hour before I read this some business analyst on MSNBC was saying he wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft were to buy out a large search engine like Ask.com, or Yahoo...
Not saying it's true or not, but that is a hillarious co-inky-dink rofl.
Just some thoughts ..
1. The title of the article is 'PS3 online work in progress. The person who posted this article writes 'Yahoo.com Slams PSN Network'. Slam is pretty harsh isn't it.
2. Since when did Nintendo Wii start online gaming?
3. Free versus Paid Subscription. Yes, Sony is bleeding dollars bills or yen right now but you can't make lemonade without squeezing lemons.
4. Features should be expanded in this rumored 2.0 version of their firmware upgrade. Comparing Xbox Live (current version) to PS Network (current version) is premature.
5. I were Sony, I would outline what the PS Network vision should be at the GDC. Set expectations and do your bloodiest best to meet it. Gabe Newell (man behind Valve Software - Half Life) said that they should redo the Playstation 3 all over again. Dumbest comment to date(check March issue of Game Informer). They should rethink their vision!!!! I think Phil Harrison is the only damn executive that understands this need.
Live and Let Game!!
...I know what your talking about. All they do is complain and whine. Nothing but excuses. Yahoo is anti-sony! Blah Blah Blah! It's pathetic and entertaining at the same time!
as long as it plays games online thats all i care about.
SONY PSN must be smelly!!!
Well as I'm european this doesn't much worry me just yet...I think I shall wait until the announcements this gdc...and I hope they take the approach that Microsoft takes with games having to have online capabilities.
PSN Network is redundant.
As I recall; Xbox Live in it's infancy was way better and had no problems, except for those few who found ways to cheat in a game.
I beta-tested for xbox (played for free before the service was offered to the public). Voice and messaging services were working perfectly. That was XBL, "in it's infancy."
XBL on 360, offering HD movie/tv and game downloads is ALSO "in it's infancy". So stop finding lame excuses for a lame online service!
The problem with you Sony turdboys is that you ignore and bash anyone who factually points out Sony and the PS3's weak points INSTEAD of acknowledging and recognizing them, then DEMANDING Sony for more or better.
That's what Xbox fanboys have done-and MS almost ALWAYS listens and complies. Sony will do it too-if you speak loud enough. Remember the boomerang controller?
