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. Read on.
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. im out.
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?
