Sony announce new download service,Video, Movies and other content. Coporate President Jack Trenton reveals upcoming PS3 download service.
Hes's quite boring to listen to .. But it's great news none the less!
Why didn't he announce the rumble as well? We all know it! :)
might be announced at E3. Is funny how they kept denying the price cut and out of nowhere BAM...
Here is the video embedded
does he say anything about the download service connectivity with the psp?
i wonder where they got this idea from?
Another sony original im sure...... ;)
are you implying they **** MSFT ?
those sneaky bastards.lol. motorstorm sells 1million+ copies, cool. the people over at evolution studios deserve it, its a great game.
"And if that isn’t enough for you, we’ll have tons of content hitting the PLAYSTATION Store this week, including the SCEA press conference and exclusive first and third party videos and trailers, only available through PLAYSTATION Network. These will be available shortly after the conclusion of the press conference."
They better come through strong after stiffing us last week.
Morbo demands a ton of content!!!
can sony think of ideas of their own?
1 - online service (well, they tried at least)
2 - guide button
3 - triggers
4 - Player indicators (lights)
5 - internal HDD
6 - wireless controllers....
7 - now this, but its probably borked
So if they weren't to do an online service (for not wanting to copy someone else) what would you suggest? GTFO xbot tool
Actually Sony is leading the way as far as innovation goes this gen. It's already been said that multiplat games that uses hdd are better optimized on the PS3 b/c the devs can program their games knowing that each system at least HAS a hard drive... unlike the 360.
You're preoccupied with bashing it, but I can't help wondering why you care?
The very fact that Microsoft made A console at all means they copied everyone before them... including Nintendo, Sony, and Sega. You can't see past your own bias long enough to think outside the xBOX.
1- Online service? Sony's Online service is FREE. (cough)
2- Guide button? I'm not sure what you're trying to imply here. You might as well say "internal power supply"... oh you can't. Weak point either way.
3- Triggers? I'll give you that one, I don't like ANY trigger buttons
4- Player indicators? LOL wtf?? Are you trying to say that the 360 innovated LED's?? Another weak point (read: lame)
5- Internal HDD? LOL. My PS2 had a HDD, don't know what you're getting at? Besides, the 360 is still using DVD... I wonder who did that first? Hmmm?? (I know it's a stupid point to make, all of this "who did it first" crap is stupid.
6- Wireless Controllers? My good boy, the PS3 controllers are Bluetooth.
7- Downloadable music and movie content? How much content do you think Sony has access to? Hmmm??
xbox live is da $hit i dont care if it is S50/year
Because it was 'last gen' so now at this E3 it will be 'Rumble is back' WTF? LOL
Enough people biatched about it, so they listened to the majority customers and decided to re-impliment it. How dare they!
WHO CARES!!!! you can say that but is it really is it REALLY going to change the way people think about sony ya i dont think so but what ever helps you sleep at night
I am so so tempted to buy the PS3, but there is no way I am going to buy one without rumble, I can bite myself and wait
So many take the "last gen" statement out of context. It was stupid of Sony not to pay Immersion off before the PS3's release. However, they have been in discussions w/ them for some time and their version of rumble (developed by Immersion) will be more advanced than what we are accustomed to as of now. It's not that hard to see if you remove the red ringed colored glasses.
Just buy it. The rumble will be out soon. It wont kill you to buy it afterwards. Its only a paddle. At least buy one by September or the end of August so you can play Warhawk or Heavenly Sword.
Phil should be the only person allowed to speak.
He is a funny dude
one thing that I am thnking about, its reminding me about that firmware 2.0 rumor from the other day, with the replacement of the Playstation store http://www.ps3forums.com/sh...
-New download service
-Price cut to $499 for 60GB
-Limited 80GB bundle which I believe will drop to $499 or lower this year as they phase out 60GB - therefore not foregoing sales and still maintaining a low price/leverage for an even lower price
-Euro price announcement
-Firmware 2.0? Or is that with Home in October?
Nintendo's presentation will undoubtedly consist of extreme hubris and annoying mini/non-game revelations.
Microsoft can't drop any bombs, financially impossible to do a price cut, Gears 2 isn't showing, MGS4 confirmed for ages to not come to 360 ever, etc.
Oh, and Motorstorm now joins Resistance as a million seller. Excellent.
Bloody amazing how much Sony has turned around in just 8 months. They became profitable within 5, and I'm sure are now working back their losses. Eat sh** to those who keep saying Sony would go bankrupt and they were losing "HUNDREDS" on each console. I told you for all we knew it could be profitable.
1. Rumble controller just = every PS3 owner needs to pay another 50 bucks for another controller if they want it.
2. Your really not in a position to say what MS can or cannot do, when your the single biggest computer company in the world because you own somewhere along 95% of the market you have money to throw around.
3. Again your not in a position to say what will or will not be at E3 for MS.
4. At this time last year Xbox 360 already had 4 1 million selling games.
every PS3 owner does *NOT need to pay $50 for the new Rumble controller.
see, i'm a PS3 owner, and i have no desire to feel rumble in my games ever again.
why? because, over the past few years, i've been turning rumble off in every game i've played, because it's annoying.
sure, it was cool back in, oh, '96, when it was new and unique, but now it's a hinderance. it makes my hands feel all wonky when implemented poorly, and doesn't affect gameplay as much as people think.
i did the ultimate test, and played Silent Hill 2 and 3, as well as Shadow of the Colossus, with rumble *OFF, and it didn't effect the game at all. in fact, i didn't even realise that rumble was off at all.
then, when i got my PS3, i still didn't care that there was no rumble.
with all that said, i do think it's good that Sony listened to the fans on this one, and returned rumble for those that wanted it, but for those like me, that don't like it, at all, we don't have to cough up money for it anyway.
the only way i'll buy the Rumble SIXAXIS is if my current controller breaks, and the rumble one is the only one in the store.
Jack said all this before. We're going to have it by the end of the year. I don't care who did it first Xbox or PS. It's what you get that matters and Sony owns quite a few movie and tv studio's as well as music. We're all in for a hell of a year if your into gaming!
DOES THE 500 DOLLAR 60 GIG STILL COME WIT THAT TRADE IN UR PS2 AND GET IT FOR HUNDRED LESS DEAL. WHICH MAKES IT 400
That deal has nothing to do with when you purchase a PS3, thats an EB games deal, you would have to call them up and see if its still on.
owns like 1/3 of the movie industry and also the music industry so they will have no problems getting way Way more movies than the marketplace service
lol 1/3???? they own Sony picture!
Its an exclusive Major studio that wont be gracing xbox marketplace while Microsoft doesnt have any exclusivity deal in place that we know at the moment. However if this goes the way of blu-ray, Microsoft would have only Universal supporting it exclusively while sony could pull its partners in exclusive blu ray for the ps3 which means a whole lot of difference in the content will be seeing but alas will have to see hopefully it wont get to those stupid reasons again and everyconsole gets all the content although being sony i doubt they will lose the edge of their exclusive divisions to microsoft which in turn will start a retaliation and another war in our hands.
jack trenton needs some public speaking classes. Phil Harrison should be making these announcements.
down loadable movies will be for all platforms not at first but may be later good money earner
