Kaz Hirai says getting new online service out to consumers in Q1 would be 'preferable'
Sony's starting to flex their media muscle. There has been so many announcements in the past few days for the PSN community to look forward to. Amazing. I can't wait.
Yeah Sony has been killing it lately with the announcements. They seem very confident and they are on the highway to success. I can't wait to see what they have in stock for us.
bubble for you. (back to 5 bubbles) I agreed. Sony is awesome.
I love Sony, but doing this may be stretching themselves too thin. I at least hope they don't have plans to use more proprietary files and storage mediums, because that would spell doom from the get-go. Still pissed how expensive it is to get PSP flash cards compared to standard SD cards.
If that is the case then I am a happy camper. Free online play and downloadable movies and music. Kudos Sony for making the PSN a place I want to hang out and spend my money and play games with my friends for free.
now thats something ill use....M$ for sure wont get this apple hates M$
an itunes rival?? Hmm sony already had one of these a few years back I forget the name and it failed horribly I am surprised they are trying again but I guess failure teaches you things. I would love a subscription on this imagine unlimited mp3 songs on ps3 for a flat monthly fee and streaming them while playing your games through a playlist?? The possibility's are endless. Sony are really going places with the PS3 MS are using existing stuff (Sony Eye clone/twitter/etc..)
I think you are talking about "Sony Connect". This is much better.
would be if they could somehow integrate some of these new features into Home... it would give people a reason to use the service.
Surprised it still isn't here to be honest. Sony should have had a head start with their own music company. Still, hope this arrives soon and prices are competitive.
Are these downloads also going to include rootkits? Will be curious to see which road they take with DRM.
Very interesting indeed. i have a feeling 2010 is gunna be heavily focused on the PSN,and the PSN community,witch is DEF awesome imo. i would really really love for them to implement a game renal service.. that might be one of the premium services sony was talking about,witch in that case (depending on price) i will be looking into it. :)
All these new features coming and to be honest, I don't really give a sh!t. Never gonna use them, I just wanna play games on the ps3. Suppose you can't complain, it's better to have the option than have no option.
And lucky for you thats one of the first things they implemented on the PS3, was the abiltiy to play games, so your set anything else is extra then i guess.
MEGATON! I mean itunes is massive! Us gamers might not use it as much but the casual sure do!
It's not iTunes, but a rivaling service like iTunes... There is a huge difference mate.... It's like saying you got an iPod and other guy saying he got a mp3 player like iPod... If it were iTunes, this would have been a huge MEGATON, but still pleased that Sony is taking steps in the right direction... Next up I can predict an App store like the one Apple has or like PS3 miniS...
I hope their store is open to all device, not just sony product but to all mp3 players. that would be huge advantage to sony over itune store.
make a subscription service, with unlimited downloads of drm free, high bitrate files, in a decent format, and i will love it!
You think about it. I'm sure they will implement something like a music store into the PSN. Hell, there are SONY cellphones, mp3 players, and blu-ray players that have the XMB where you can log into your PSN account and see who is online. I'm sure you could be able to log into the PSN store and download music onto your SONY cellphones or MP3's, and PS3 eventually almost like Ipods and the Itune store app. That would be sweeeett. Cheers!
This was in the planning stages for awhile now. It's great to see Sony ready to implement it.
So does that mean I can transfer songs from my ipod to my ps3?
On the interwebz that is, there's no reason to pay for music anymore.
that is stealing
This will be f'n sweet.
I would love to see the 3D gaming would look like. Hopefully we can see a FULL demo at it at CES 2010 or at E3 2010.
I wonder if this service will be as killer as their mp3 player lineup? Lol You'll have to use some proprietary cable, and the file format will only work if it's on a memory stick, or mini-disc, or umd. Oh wait, they planned on killing the umd, so forget about that one.
Id like to see the ability to bring up the menu during Vidzone and buy the MP3 of the vid your watching, plus the ability to buy songs from games. I really dig Fallout 3 classic tunes. Kind of of topic, I wish when you put the GHero Bluray in, you could go to Music XMB and copy MP3s from the game. Hell you pay $60 for the game. You should get the MP3s for free. And Fallout NV/4 needs a radio station on your PipBoy300 that plays "ingame music" between the broadcasted script.
Lol, look at the xbox fans comments on mcv.Com, someone have to explain them that we are in 2009, not 2006.
A music service through the PS3 would be killer. I'm sure people would totally use it.
