What's going on with Sony's online plans? GamePro speaks with Susan Nourai, the senior director of the PlayStation Network, for a peak at what's to come for PSP and PS3 owners.
despite being an englishman, it is good to hear what this person has to say. Can't wait for this HOME.
"in our four months with over 600,000 registered accounts" does that mean that over half of PS3 owners havent signed up for online play? do you need to sign up? just wondering
Yes in order to play online and access the store etc you have to create and account which is part of creating your PSN id.
I think you need to sign up if you want to connect to the internet, use the playstation store for demos and games.
(Hungrily rubs hands together as he anticipates the next firmware update.)
so is HOME only coming to the US or is the beta version only coming to the US?
Home is coming to Japan, Europe, and America. The Beta however is going to origin at North America, and slowly work its way outward until the real version comes out. Dont worry, you will get to go home.
if it was pricing for online play, like 60 a year to use the PSN.
Does that mean that you would then cry? Smarten up.
In the other hand Xboxlive should be cheaper or offer the reward system I heard about. 1000 gamescore = 100 MS points.
Hopefully this means FREAKING IN GAME XMB and wtf only 600 000? You know theres 3M PS3s in peoples homes right? That means only 20% of the ps3s out there are registered!
i know cus its free i expected nearly all ps3 owners to be signed up.
I am not suprised really. There are only a few games thus far that take advantage of online play. The store is great for a start but Sony needs to give people more of a reason to go online. Home, more games that utilize online play, movie,tv and music download service etc. All this takes time of course.
Not everyone: A)Bought the PS3 for gaming B)Have high-speed internet C)Don't have clue on setting that up @mp
Not everyone has a broadband connection. So that's a factor. Pity though for people not connected.
I can't wait for HOME it looks like it's goin to be an amazing service and ofcourse it' FREE. It's good to play online for free lol! Ok am sorry couldn't help it.
is the beta coming out
