The latest version of PSM magazine have also revealed some details on what the expectations of the next "big" firmware update for the ps3 will consist of.
let hope this is true and will be out the same time as e3 or e for all.
Xbox live is about ot be overated. When HOME come out we'll be like xbox what. lol
but let me chime in with the above comment... home is going to be freakin stupid. preach all u want, i dont like the sims, i dont like second life therefore i won't like home. it's overrated... just more propaganda for u guys who swear ps3 is the end all be all of game systems. it's great, just not mecca
for the record, i'm enjoying my gaming NOW, not tomorrow ;)
Home only "looks" like the sims and second life, it isn't an actual simulation of either game. It's an online community much like live, HOWEVER it is represented by sprites and not "gametags". It allows for more direct communication with other Playstation Network entities and allows for a multitude of functionality and expandable for the future...
Yes, everyone wants gaming NOW, however, once you reach the future, isn't that going to be "NOW" someday?
but second life IS an online community, albeit glorified with ads, prettier graphics, trailers, and minigames like pool you can play with your friends or strangers. i like living my life OUTSIDE of a game console. u do know there is an outside social world right? why mimic it? how much more of an outcast do u really want to be?
when i game, i prefer playing with gamers and friends i know. on occasion no on is on and i get my online fix by going online hoping that i'll stumble across a non13yr old timmy scream his nonpubecent voice about how he owns this game. but maybe u guys are the same type to have 400 friends that u have no clue who they are and like being social outcasts? this my friends is why i think HOME is stupid. u might not think so. different strokes for different folks. hint: if u ever want to get laid, u won't do it via HOME
as for gaming NOW, thats why i'm pcwii60. gaming TOMORROW, i'll pickup a ps3 TOMORROW. but one feature i wont use is HOME. i'll try it, but thats as far as it gets
This article is just speculation from a magazine.
Just like the big "FIRMWARE 2.0 DETAILS" Article a month ago, it was just some guy typing out what he WANTED to have in the next firmware update.
Those features would be nice, but again... too good to be true.
XMB Support is just simply at this point in time, not possible on the PS3. It would involve putting aside more precious ram or even a seperate SPU to support it... then you would have to have GAMES made so that they could use that feature. It's too early in the consoles software development to impliment that.
I would love RSS and the equaliser though...
if not then sony need to work harder.
I have to disagree about the XMB not being accessible in gameplay soon because:
1. There's a japanese game in the PSN store that already gives you access to the XMB during gameplay, and thats been there awhile.
2. Just messed about in my friends Home beta trial, they now have access to the XMB at anytime!
Hopefully we'll see this update soon.
go to about 2:20 http://youtube.com/watch?v=...
In that article you gotta love this bit:
'This details are all from PSM magazine. Non of which have been confirmed by Sony yet. However, this could very well be true coming from a playstation magazine.'
Wow so yeah anything the PSM says its gotta be true right? Right? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
EDIT: Why am I scared? I own a PS3 HAHAHAHAHAHA in your face!
Your laugh seems more of a frightened than enjoyable one. Are you feeling threatened because the PS3 is getting more and better firmware updates each time?
Don't be scared young one, all will be over real soon (E3).
We're only at what, 1.81. In-Game XMB is only a matter of TIME, and there is still plenty of it before Fall(Home) to implement many of these features which will steadily enhance the In-Game activities. I don't think they have to all come with the 2.0 update... ;)
sony gives more frequent and better updates than microsoft (a software company)
All of this stuff was originally on the 360 out of box. I mean, I only bought my 360 2 months ago (6 months AFTEr I bought my ps3 at launch), but I didn't have to wait to listen to my own music or check my messages until I was done playing a game. It's my understanding (and I will find out for sure soon), that M$ updates their consoles every quarter, and that they are worth it every time. They really don't have mush to improve on, IMO....the games are good and plentiful, and so far I have spent at LEAST 2000 bucks on my ps3 (including the purchase of games), and all I have to show for it is Oblivion, Resistance (which are AWESOME), and a whole mess of stuff I have bought while on reserve (which takes my total to about 3000 something)that have been pushed back a number of times. Funny how Sony, an electronics company, made a great system and blu-ray player, and M$ is kicking their a$$ when it comes to fringe that makes the gaming aspect better in many ways that sony should have thought of before, while at the same time offering a second-rate HD movie player and game system... They are both excelling in what they know, if you ask me.
well microsoft doesn't have to update as much b/c almost everything xbl users wanted was included when the system launched, I mean all the basic functionality features
WHY SOME PEOPLE DON"T LIKE PS3??? Its A VERY VERY VERY Relible machine , and has the best features , and the System software is evolving monthly, and Great Games From Diffreint Geners are coming , Sure its Pricy , but its better than paying microsoft tons of bucks for repairs with thier failure hardware , People come and join the PS3 Faction :)
Said they didn't like the PS3?!? I love my ps3, I was just pointing out that people are attacking like M$ isn't doing things right, when really they have from the start. My 360 has been on pretty much 13 hours a day since I have had it, and I have no problems whatsoever. Same as my ps3, aside from the fact that it stays on 24/7. The hardware failure is because people don't know how to handle their stuff. People put it in that stupid spot in the entertainment center made for VCRs that don't over heat, and then cry because they choked their system to death. I wish more people would be REASONABLE and stop being fanboys to justify their purchase. I know it's hard, but I was there. Pretty soon there will be games, and my 360 will collect dust, but that's a ways off and only gets further thanks to games being pushed back. That's all I was saying. Not knocking the ps3, it's my console of choice...but right now I have to settle for something that offers what was promised, and I don't have to wait.
Edit: For the guy below me:
I am sorry, lol, like I stated before, I have only had mine two months, and I probably spoke too soon when I made that comment. I had a ton of friends who all (except one) got the red rings, and that's where they had it. I dunno why, lol, maybe because it made their EC look sleek...dunno. But I apologize, it was unfair to make the assumption that everyone who got the ring o' fire was a nimrod. I apologize again for my unfair comment.
Sorry dude, the "people don't know how to treat their 360's" argument is lame. My 360 was in an IDEAL location and still red ringed me. MS did a lot of things right, but they have made mistakes as well.
what these two are supposed to be?:
- Addition of topics (bottom of screen and saver of screen)
- Possibility of opening several sessions of cat
(what the Hell's a "saver of screen"???...It's got "confused of me.")
Also, it would be really, really nice if they would add the simple and primitive ability to make sub-folders/categories so that I don't have to trounce through a single, huge list of 587,000 MPS's just to get to my cherished William Hung version of "She Bangs" 12" extended remix. ;)
Also, is there another version of PSM??? I could swear I bought mine hot-off-the-press only last week (July issue, white cover). I've read it cover-to-cover, and I don't remember coming across this news.
the one they are talking about is the august one which im waiting for too.
from within the game, I can't see why the XMB would be a problem.
It shouldn't be too difficult disable the 'web browser' feature when a game is running.
Similar to "this feature is not available" popping up when trying to run a PS3 game or [email protected]
Worried that no one heard you the first time?
Anyhow, it is coming from PSM, so I wonder if they say a little more in there then the site. I never subscribe to MAGS. On a lazy Sunday , I hit up the mall, sit down and read at the nearest B&N, or Borders.
Of course PSN is playing "catch up" so I would expect to see more frequent updates from them. Plus there is more to be done on PSN, as, is not as establish as XBL per say. XBL was doing simple sh!t right out the gates.
-On another note, XBL and PSN are somewhat User driven, MS and as well and Sony take in lots of feedback and act accordingly with next and future updates. I would expect the more users on a network, the longer the updates take to come out as well and the bigger they will become.
*-More feedback, more decisions and politics over what makes the cut and what doesn't.
Don't be fooled, for people that are waiting a year or 2 to purchase a PS3, smile at these little upgrades, as when they eventually purchase a PS3, it will be cheaper and will come with firmware 5.00+. Only then, to me it will be worth it. Plenty of alternative things to do while I wait.
Niffty. This random one grabbed my eye -Equalizer (music) that would be pretty slick.
Console is beggining to to live, got darkness yesterday and with new firmware updates on the way, things are only gonna get better. Good gaming All...
is going to be a monster update!
Hey listen if you want to get like a years free subscriptions of the PSM or OXM magazines, sign up for game fly for $8.95 and after a week cancel the game fly subscription, every month you will receiving the magazine of your choice. Well that's my dark tip...
As soon as cross game invites, cross game messaging, and custom soundtracks come XBL is an expensive piece of sh*t. Gameplay is great and 100% lag free on PSN, the messaging system is awesome with video, voice and text chat up to 6 people in a single chat room(something XBL can't do). The PS Store has great content and the downloadable games just take a dump on the 360's arcade titles. Playstation Home is B3YOND anything XBL could dream of. It's just a great matchmaking community service that will revolutionize online. All 3D, all customizable, it's awesome. Developers will have great involvement and be able to create amazing worlds all embedded in Home. As soon as we get 2.0 and HOME, XBL will no longer be
By the time the PSN gets to where live is now, live would off already moved on you dumb ass. And dont get me started on HOME because thats just fvcking gay!!
"voice and text chat up to 6 people in a single chat room(something XBL can't do)."
Are you fvcking kidding me!!! yesterday i thought i was chating to 7 other friends while waiting in a gears of war lobby, and sending an MSN instant message at the same time.....or was it just a dreaming.
"The PS Store has great content and the downloadable games just take a dump on the 360's arcade titles"
Ha Ha the ps store has great content, yeah i can download super rubdub and lots of trailers!!! yay fvck xbox live where i can download tons of demos and classic arcade games.
Fvck the video market place where i can download full movies and TV shows. The PSN is much better LOL
Your the best example of how dumb sonyfangilrs really are.
I don't play gears of war...7 year olds who can't spell, and have bad grammar...honestly. Have a cookie. You can chat with all your cool friends, and send a PM...multitasking at it's finest.
XBL has PSN beat, for sure, but one's not saying it may not get better. I just dropped 50 bucks for XBL...it's nice to not have to spend 50 more, though, and if it does get as good (if not better) than XBL, then it will be awesome, because I can drop my XBL membership. There really is no sense in that at all.
But dude, HOME sounds crappy. Not to be an ass, but Myspace sucks, and all Home is is myspace with miis. It really is a crap service....but it's the only thing that M$ doesn't have.
Except that not many people here use MSN Messager, do they? Compare that to aim, dont BS me. You have aim too, we all do.
I mean seriously... How hard can it be? 2 lines of code or something?
You have to Threat the 360 like a pet if your not careful it will die ;(
i cant use that link to games-creed.com :((
Looks like Live will get pwned...oh wait, it's already getting pwned haha Live just sucks, you are paying for it, but you even can't chose on which servers you wanna play WTF haha oh no, that's a no go.
I wasn't really effected by the last one but thats no biggie. I'm sure whatever Sony has for 2.0 will be fanfreakingtastic!
PSN just seems so much better. With all the firmware updates, it is going to pass XBL very quickly. You cant even multi video chat on 360, how lame is that. PSN lets you do that. When HOME comes out, all the XBL users are gonna be on fire with so much hate in their hearts. XBL is old news now, PSN is the new threshold and standard that all other consoles need to look at and simulate. Face it 360 idiots, you guys got screwed buying the 360.
CG: Please, just stop hatin cuz your broke and cant get a PS3. We all know this, and you dont need to front like you dont like the PS3. You can always turn tricks like your mom does and save up to buy that PS3 though.
NoBiz: Murder myself?? HAHA, that was actually funny. I like your picture of mastercheif. Lemme guess, you took that picture yourself, with some guy dressing up like master cheif while you were on your knees giving him a BL0W.
Edit: NOBIZ, HAHA, after I amde that comment about him blowing master cheif, he goes and changes his avatar. Wow, talk about ebing insecure, that is too funny.
Murder yourself you one-bubble prick. WTF people like you make me sick.
Oohh my console is better. You are a f**king lilly girl.
Agreed snowbiz. Its people like him who make me glad that there is a bubble system. Just think if he could post as much as he wanted to. The world would end as we know it. lol.
Honestly, its idiots like you who give the ps3 a bad name...
in my opinion Sony is the best at revealing new features, thrilling news.
This one is the best one yet.
Roll on, sony!
1. take the HTML store aways and use app instead.
2. Get rid of browser and use firefox instead.
3. Play DIVX and XVID.
If this happen, I dont need to turn on my PC anymore.
Dont forget,On our next update(I think)on xbox live,we will get IPTV!So xbox live aint that bad for 5 bucks a month!
I cant wait to open several instances of Cat!!!!!!!!!
Heres my wish list. In game XBM, or at least a watered down version.
Java Support in browser.
Heck Firefox would be awesome, but i doubt it would happen.
then i'd be happy.
OH and not having to share my pics and vids amongst all my users
I sure as hell can't wait for that XMB. :)
Once they update the browser in the PS3 and this 2.0 firmware update becomes available what more can a PS3 owner want this holiday season.
P.S. before the remarks come, we will be getting game this holiday season as well.
positive PS3 news? I don't know how to act anymore.
(*giddy like a happy tree friend*)
Why the hell is the 1.80 update taking so fuking long to download. Honestly, ive had it downloading for an hour, and its only at 13%? And dont usually these updates happen on a Thursday, not on a Wednesday night?. I think someone at Sony screwed everything up, and now none of us can go online until we download the update, which i dont even think is fully up, cause if it was, id be online on motorstorm right now. Instead ive got to wait hours and hours, until the new update is done. Jesus Sony!
EDIT: Srry about my fuss. It was my fault. I was downloading a movie, talking to ppl on msn, and trying to download the update, all off of one PC, and all off of one internet connection. So once i closed down all my applications, and then gave a direct feed to the PS3, it went by fast, like 20mins, i was done. So again Srry.
Patience. It'll be downloaded soon, you'll have a better version, and you'll be back to playing Motorstorm online for free in no time. These updates are well worth the momentary inconvenience.
i actually downloaded it pretty fast..remember if your downloading the 1.80 at the sametime as 2 million ppl im pretty sure itll be slow - i usually try to download firmware early morning like 1am when most ppl are have downloaded it already..could be ur internet connection to
well i read a home review and one guy stated that they can access the XMB from home. im not sure if this is true but if it is - expect that feature to hit very soon. i love the XMB its sooo smooth and easy..i heard the new bravia TV are gonna have it as well - thats cool
XMB access is a certainty in the future, what's all that rubbish about not possible because of RAM or SPU limitations.
Also rubbish is that Home is crap. Home, something MS isn't even considering is infinitely better. As a matchmaking service, as a user generated content service (for free unlike 360), and as a social environment, which believe it or not, casuals WANT (what would the Xbox hardcore know about that).
