The new PSP firmware points to future development for both the PSP and the PS3 that could be good news for third party developers.
I'll take 3rd party PS3/PSP apps any day. Bring it on Sony!
Sony should do this.
Make it happen Sony. Any feature will be welcomed.
Great Idea! Many Possibilities!
DO IT SONY! I fully support this idea. It brought tons of revenue and success for the iPhone and it should do wonders for the PS3.
I'm curious when more of those Uncharted comic/movie thing will come out. I cant wait for Hulk comics!
It would be wise. It will be great for PS owners, and it would extend the life of the PSP, giving them another 2 years before the PSP 2 has to be launched.
1 they need something to write on something like msword 2 pda type stuff for organization, have a calander that tells you "oh its robbies birthday today" or "you have a meeting today" right when you turn it on, 3 they need editors, photo/ movie editors 4 something to draw, maybe put it right on the messangers so you can write and draw stuff next to it 5 making all the mainstream messengers available, skype aim yahoo or maybe just one just something thats outside of ps3 only people 6 extremely quick to jump in an play games have like pool or poker that litterally takes a milisecond to load and is always online 7 facebook integration with the buddylist and messangers -instead of having a personal psn icon they will have a facebook icon or a yahoo icon making the buddylist a sort of adress book
I want apps to play MKV files.
it's PS3 not a PDA. That's why I have a Blackberry Curve. Now, not everything you stated is discounted though: #5, #3 are good ideas (you know that Skype is available on the PSP already, so on the PS3 is not far fetched at all with new app after FW update).. a movie editor would be nice, but you're talking about running programs on the PS3 which will degrade it's primary focus of playing games....and there is already a simple pic editor that you can go into now and manipulate pics. ========= "they really need to get down the basics so they get into mainstream coputer buisness" you do realize that they already are in the mainstream computer business, right? anyway, I hope the apps continue to grow on both the PSP and PS3. I saw the comics reader on after my PSP update the other day and was very excited as I am a big comics Marvel fan. Looks like Sony is waging another one of their, "10 year campaigns" on us again.
Awesome can't wait to send a virus.
this is the first time you made LMAO ... your pathetic trolling attempts are sad. you know what ? here's a bubble :) you need to post more sh!t like this .. just for the laughs
You couldn't even fill out a redeem code let alone code a virus.
mgr you are sad.
This would be awesome on PS3!!
Don't third party apps exist illegally? Or are they just making it legal now? I dont understand... Oh, or is it just people making their own apps like the iPhone? It would be a pretty good decision for third party apps. It would pretty much make the PSP the more hardcore version of the iPhone (assuming apps include games too) It would be spectacular on the PS3. But Sony should make it ONLY accessible to Premium owners because it would make the value of Premium membership worth more. With a new stream of profit from Premium services Sony can do wonders with third party apps on a console... in fact it would be pretty revolutionary on consoles wouldnt it?
This isnt MS
Your right. Sony should offer a Premium service that doesn't have benefits. /sarcasm. Like it or not Sony is planning on having a premium service that offers exclusive features for people that pay. If they ever allow third party apps it would be a great reason to pay for PSN Premium.
renting movies, comics, etc. With apps, you're already going to pay for each app anyway, just like apps on the iPhone.
Companies that make these apps will either want them to be paid for as in buying said app or if they're free, make them so everybody can have it thus increase the value of said program so if it's supported by ads, the ad base will have a bigger consumer base to show said ads too.
I hope Sony opens up an Applications icon under the PS3's XMB so Home, Life with PlayStation, Photo Gallery and all that can go under it! And then they can open an Apps section for the Store!
This could really give Sony an advantage over Microsoft considering the PSN itself is an open platform, where as Microsofts is not.
And it's not like the 360 can't be open. In fact, MS has patented a super guide system that would allow people to take pictures, videos, and add voice commentary to make a game guide for the rest of the gamers to see/use. I love third party themes on my PS3 though, that little browser does a lot.
The thing is Microsoft won't open their system up, because the last thing they want consoles doing is replacing the demand for windows. They don't want people getting into the mindset that a console can do everything your PC can. Where's IE on 360? This is exactly why it's not there. Sony should definitely go this way. It's Microsoft's weakness. It's why MS is out to kill Sony.
An open platform in what sense? You can't put anything in the PSN/PS3 without a devkit and Sony's tick of approval. iPhone apps need Apple's tick of approval also but there's been a hundred thousand of those given outalready - 20,000 are probably all fart apps. Sony/MS/Nintendo all require huge feats of planning and discussion before they'll let some one even begin development for official release.
Wait a second, you're not against fart apps are you?
An open platform as in you can create and distribute your own theme, install a different OS and use any HDD, among other things. It might not let you do the things Apple lets you do, but it's the most open video game platform out there this generation. None of that needs approval.
Where did Omega go? MGR has provided enough trolling for the past 24h (check his profile, he's 24/7 here...). I want more of the "OMG what an idiot LOLZ"
Can you imagine if PS3 started getting Emulators.. oh man. Heck they could get away with it, as long as they didn't make the software themselves, it would be just like the emulators that are 'legal' on PC/linux ect.
I dont nkow if that would work out, silly question though if you have a fat ps3 and put linux on it cant you use an emulator?
You can't play emulators like PS1 or PS2. Why? Linux on the PS3 can't access the video card. And software rendering on Linux on the PS3 is not optimize to use the SPUs and PPEs, and will never because Linux developers do not have the time or the desire to do it.
I very seriously doubt it will ever be totally "OPEN". Sony has run closed platforms for its entire life in this business, and no console platform - home, handheld, or otherwise, has ever been fully open. It was proven not to work in the 80s. The iPhone has taken the opposite approach, but the iPhone's business model is not to sell games as its #1 lifeline - it's a phone, not sold at a loss (to my knowledge), bundled with call plans, etc... PSP-go seems to be headed in an indie-friendly mini app sorta direction, but extremely unlikely they'll do a free/$100 SDK and let 80,000 apps turn up. It would absolutely bury their current software lineup under mountains of shovelware.
A vendor offering to rent/buy HQ JP anime shows online?
if this happens i want a media player that plays :- mkv,avi,vob,mp4,flv,rm,rmvb,m ov,d ivx....etc that would be wicked !!!!!
...don't show the icons for unwanted apps on the xmb. Having Digital Comics and SenseMe cluttering up the PSP xmb is pointless when you dont intend on keeping the apps. Imagine if icons for all DLC was on your PSP/PS3 XMB regardless if you downloaded it or not. On the subject of apps, if SenseMe is anything to go by then Sony can keep apps off the PSP. Honestly, its a great idea that's only half implemented. Its no wonder people go for the Itouch after seeing its interface.
just read through several pages of your comments and I conclude that you: a) are an angry, sad, and miserable individual (at the least, you type that way) b) need To consider leaving beautiful New Zealand if all you're going to do is bltch about obvious networking and product challenges c) should really stop playing Sony branded items because you do nothing but (((complain))) about them! ============================= =============== "On the subject of apps, if SenseMe is anything to go by then Sony can keep apps off the PSP. Honestly, its a great idea that's only half implemented. Its no wonder people go for the Itouch after seeing its interface." ....what.are.you.talking.abou t? half implemented how (explain) when was the PSP competing with the Itouch for anything much less interfacing? I don't give a phuck about an Itouch dude....
But I don't seem to have the "extras" icon for the Comic Reader. Is this because I have the "Asia Gran Turismo Version" of the franchise?
First Thing i thought when i saw this "Q2 FY2010: release non-game software development kit" Great idea if it happens
