We are all closer to the E3 and feel, there is a certain atmosphere in the air that is noticeable throughout the game industry.
updates are always welcome but seriously with all these installs and constant updates im seriously running out of space i have 4 gigs left D;
i was running out of space in my early days of my ps3.. but i delete my game installs for games i dont play anymore. last weekend i installed the bionic commando game data.. after i was done,... i deleted it (not the game save just the game install)..
id be able to get lots of precious space back if my brother didn't insist on keeping home no offense but that piece of junk is a waste of space as it is now and they take allot of it away D;
The main problem with Home is how much space it actually reserves on the PS3, the main app and downloaded areas don't even come up to that much in total. Why the data reservation that steals most the HDD?
Buy a 320gb notebook hard drive at Microcenter for $59.99. Yeah, it's one of those not so famous brands but they're reliable. Dont order online since they jack up the price for another $10. It sucks if you dont have a Microcenter close by though. Good luck. But yes, delete old Game Data or delete all those naughty vids or illegal vids you have on your PS3... well, at least mine has those... hehehehe
What are you guys thinking? You can get massive hard drives for dirt cheap these days. Not to mention, if you run Tversity or PlayOn, you can virtually store all your movie and music on you PC and stream all that stuff. The only thing you need on your PS3 HDD is game data and games themselves. I installed PlayOn on my PC and now watch all my Netflix movies on my PS3 and Tversity allows me to play all my iTunes and other music along with any videos I have ripped to my 1TB network drive. There are so many options with the PS3 and its expansibility that your choices are nearly endless.
Or buy this 1 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sam... I got my 500gig Hdd at a carboot sale 4 40quid it was a steal - although once installed on my Ps3 i lost about 30 gigs of it 4 sum reason and that was b4 i installed Home and me game data
I've been planning of buying a new harddrive the last few weeks, my recent Maplin's store seems to have pretty good deals on HDDS if I've done my research correctly, but Home does take over a lot of space which it actually doesn't use...which is odd. I'm planning of going up to 250GB, I mean, a 60Gigger did me pretty good from buying retail about 2 years ago now, I don't see myself filling that up too fast, especially with the lack of large installs these days. And just to check, just a SATA HDD, right?
And they are cheap now!
@ Cajun Chicken, I think it's for temporary storage of streaming media while in Home. For instance, the video screens in most of the areas. The stream is downloaded to your hard drive so that it can play without staggering. I'm sure there's other factors involved too. Not really sure, I'm not an engineer on Home, but there must be some reasons for it.
Yes indeed! I used my stock60 gig and now have only about 50 gigs in my 250, Sony needs tofind a way to better manage storage so we don't eat up our Hard-Drive space.
I can't wait for this update...just want to use the new application...I wonder what else will be available in the update...
in game chat or in game lobby? desperately needed features on the playstation network
That's odd, I have been playing games on the PSN for years now and have not found those issues to be desperately needed...
I don't mind these updates. The small ones take very little time and the big ones are worth the wait when they give you new features. All the updates in 2009 have been quick and painless on my 5mbps connection. Just in time for the Uncharted 2 beta. Watch all the post about how someone was going to play the beta and then update shows up. :P
Backwards Compatibility, wouldn't that be a shocker?
Nothing shocks me anymore this gen.
Im pretty sure they already "trojan horsed" us, like they did last year. remember the update a few weeks ago?
I hope it is something good.
Is that when im not plain a game and send sum1 a Pm theres a tab with loadsa icons like happy faces and other shapes and stuff well i use the deil horn symbols (coz im a metal head u c) but when i play a game and send a Pm 2 sum1 the symbols hav all gone, I always use that symbol its like a happy end 2 the message or summin like that - ROCK ON sort of thin Its just summin i want changed
Can we please stop posting the translated websites that dont make any sense?
i'm sure there will be ,just wait
It won't be ingame chat, Microsoft has a patent on it. So don't be expecting ingame chat etc. anytime soon. It will probably be some video codec update or web browser add-on....nothing important that enhances gameplay experience
did you just made that comment up? don't remember anyone ever mentioning ms has a patent on ingame chat.
hmm, strange.. if MS does have a patent on ingame chat then their lawyers must be on holiday because Sony added ingame text chat with the last FW update.. or did you mean ingame voice chat? in which case, where's your proof mr. know-it-all? or is this just another case of MoOkS pulling facts out his arse? i bet it is..
...great about in-game chat??? I can talk to others on my team/squad during games of Killzone 2, Resistance, etc, etc, etc. Is it only because you can chat to someone else who is playing something different? Personally, I prefer to chat to those I'm playing a game with as it can typically mean the difference between winning and losing.
I meant ingame voice chat with people playing other games. And yes, it is patented. Don't try and discredit me, because I don't make a statement unless I can 100% back it up. Go and look it up if you don't believe me....it's old news.
Are you sure you're not confusing it with in-game music? If Microsoft do have a patent for "in-game chat" it would have to be a specific delivery method, such as the software they use. "In-game chat" is far too vague for a patent, same as in-game music which Sony got around with a different delivery method. If Sony were to use, say, Skype for cross game chat, Microsoft's patent would be meaningless as they don't use Skype on the 360.
people would try to descredit you if you have credit in the first place. fact of the matter is you have very little credit. ms only patented ingame music. please stop making stuff up. if you don't like fanboys then fine but don't be the type of person who you dislike i.e. someone who talks utter rubbish. you are a gamer so act like one.
You can't patent a concept, just the manner in which that concept is technically and physically accomplished. Otherwise, a single company would have patented the concept of 'video games' a long time ago. For example: if you invented a time traveling DeLorean, you could patent the flux capacitor; but not the idea of time travel itself.
...How is it that you can chat online while playing Killzone 2, Street Fighter IV...RE5, LBP...am I missing something? You have no idea what you're talking about and you tell people to look up things? You're the one who brought this up so how about you *show* us the links yourself?
I bet the 3D part is coming, it has been said Sony will be showing it off at E3 so it is no shocker we get it and Burnout is going to look sweet in 3D.
i think you might be on to something.....
Ive never had problems with space on my ps3. But then that becuase i keep files on my PC hard drive which is £500GB Just use Tversity, or if I want to watch a film on my ps3 I just use a USB stick to transfer the file. Takes no more than 3 or so mins to do the whole thing.
Mooks may be right. I heard somewhere MS had a patent on voice chat. it makes sense if you think about it. why then would sony push it's keyboard peripheral so much? It is way easier to just talk to someone in or out of a game, but they didn't add it. text chatting is awful, I have to pause the game, get into xmb,check my message, and send one back. there is NOTHING convenient about that. no personalization. if SKYPE can fix that, we need it. PERIOD. that would pretty much seal the fact that PSN is a better service than Live.
I stil have the 60 gb, no problemo here :)
Didn't they said one of the Call Of Duty games is going to be getting the 3D to? I know their was a list an I think F.E.A.R. 2 with 3D when the little girl comes at you would screw with you (It would be awesome) as well as Dead Space.
Thats my B day
i just drop a 500 gig hard drive in mine and it cost me like $40, try newegg.com, later
