One of the foremost casual game developers, Alawar Entertainment, has mentioned that they believe the PSN has almost no hardware limitations.
It only does no limitations :)
hardly ever hear about PSN games lately, actually for a while now...
There'll probably be some announcements at E3
..tell us something we don't already know :D
buh buh buh not enough RAM... /sarcasm
Good news for ps fans all round then :) . Its nice to see developers praising.
You must only read front page news items, then. I'd suggest checking out the PlayStation Blog. There's typically 2-3 new games highlighted each week, which don't include most of the new mini games and DLC available on PSN.
you'll need to have access to the PSN in order to check out the weekly new games... But first and foremost, you must have a PS3.
@iFLOWLIKEWATER Why do you want to hear about PSN Games, I mean don't you NEED a PS3 First to start to CARE (For Real) about PS3+PSN Games...
It only does illogical sentences..
We play beyond while they play behind.
It only does Quality
There is only one problem with PSN, well atleast with me... When i play certain types of games or if i play online, the demo or w.e im downloading says Pending. I would love it if somehow i could play online WHILE the demo/w.e is downloading
Did I see someone say Beyond! BEYOND That was just for the podcast...
They make loads of PC games, but they started porting stuff to PS3. They make Magic Ball and a load of other games.
The farm frenzy games are rather addictive :).
Kinda makes me wanna try Hyperballoid.
emphasis on "almost" it's impossible to output unlimited power, especially on 4 year old hardware
I'm not big on PSN or Live games but it's nice to know they have no limitations. I also never really experience any lag while playing on the PSN.
lol, yeah, pretend we didn't see you sneak that one in lol @6.0 Well, ofcourse there can be.. if you're willing to spend 5-10hrs Downloading it and having 20-50gigs taken off your HDD :(
Again Bea, you obviously didn't read the article. If you did, maybe you'd have something intelligent to add to the conversation. Instead you look like a "troll". And don't give me that "I don't read flamebait articles" excuse. OT: AFTER I READ THE ARTICLE, this phrase stood out to me the most. "This means that games on the PSN can be full HD with no need to worry about a size limit. Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade on the other hand has a file size limit of around 2GB (which was once just 250MB)." Interesting, no? It's little FACTS like this that make me wonder why people are so insistent that XBL is superior to PSN.
Absolut_Turkey...seriously, I'm starting to wonder about you because you seem to just follow me around. I'm not into that stuff, if you are that's cool, but I'm not. Second I did read the article and I commented appropriately. Unlike you who stalked me on this forum (just like every other forum) just to make stupid comments when you probably didn't read the article yourself. Allow me to make this as simple as I can since you appear to be a simple person. I don't really play Live arcade games or PSN games (which is directly relevant to the article). Consequently since I was thinking about it I also mentioned that the PSN (at least to me) doesn't get very much lag. Which brings me to the other trolling retard...Chubear...what are you even talking about? Are you referring to my edit? I wasn't done before I hit reply so I hit the edit button and added more. Is that what you are wasting my time for? Better hurry up and hit the edit button yourself before you are out of comments. Although like most trolls you probably have multiple accounts so I'm sure you will just reply on that one.
So your a hypocrite aswell as working for the CGP? (Condescending grammar police) You absolute wild man you!
1)"you seem to just follow me around"...No Bea, you troll in EVERY article on N4G, you're not that hard to find, so don't flatter yourself. 2)"you probably didn't read the article yourself"...You mean the article that I QUOTED FROM in my post. So you didn't even read the post your responding to? Interesting... 3)"I don't really play Live arcade games or PSN games"...then why are you commenting in this article? 4)You're still in denial. Just admit you're a troll, already. You're not fooling anyone. You have already admitted to posting without reading articles. Just accept it and be done with it already.
Absolut_Turkey...I'm sorry I missed the sign that said I have to play the game(s) mentioned to comment on an article. And now commenting is considered trolling? No, I find articles that seem interesting, check them out (unless they are more flame articles) and then comment based on my opinion or someone's prior opinion (which you should know about). The only time I see you in forums is when you are following me. And I've already said that I don't read certain articles, which does not necessarily make me a troll. Trolls roam around looking for ways to be polarizing. I comment, there's a difference but I wouldn't expect you to know anything about that because all you do is troll on what I say. The only failure here is your attempt to get under my skin and your attempt at convincing me that I am in a category I'm not. Sad.
"Trolls roam around looking for ways to be polarizing. I comment, there's a difference but I wouldn't expect you to know anything about that because all you do is troll on what I say"...Do the words "Cognitive Dissonance" mean anything to you? Bea, there's nothing more "sad" than someone who can accept reality. BTW, you didn't actually answer any of my points from my last post, so that's yet another "FAIL" on your part. EDIT: Seriously, watching you try to defend yourself is painful. EDIT2: Real mature Bea. And you still haven't answered any of my points. Rational debate isn't you forte, is it?
Absolut_Turkey...the only failure on my part is continuing to let you bother me. You are a clown and you have wasted enough of my time. Oh and I answered your points to the best of my ability considering I had already explained that which means you are either illiterate, stupid or just trying to be annoying. I'm not going to continue to explain the same things over and over, you are like a broken record on every single form. Move on and get a life.
If that's true then why aren't there PSN games with Uncharted 2 type graphics? EDIT: Nevermind, I've just realised how stupid my comment was, if there were more PSN titles with Uncharted 2 graphics then they would be at least 30GB.
do you really think anyone will make a game taking 25Gb of space on a Blu-ray and instead put it to download on PSN. Do you have any idea how long it will take to download it, and do you realize that you'll need a humongous amount of HDD space if you think of downloading other such games. You could still get great games from PSN, but there will always be a clear difference between disc-based games and downloadable ones edit: just saw your edit lol ;)
I don't know what I was thinking. xD It takes me long enough just to download a demo these days. T_T By the way, what is the largest PSN game on the store right now?
Record of Agarest War is big. Got this from the playstation blog: "The game itself is only about 9 gigs, but the file you download from PSN is a sort of install file, and it basically installs the game from itself to your hard drive. That means you need 18 gigs to install the game, but once it’s installed, that initial install file is deleted, which means the game will only take up around 9 gigs after it’s installed." So a whooping 9gigs to download. If I understand well this game was supposed to come on a disc but they apparently changed their minds :/
i dont now i think its warhawk
It was suppose to be DL and released last year. Then it was held up becoming multi with a disc version for one. The whole exercise was suppose to be a cost-cutting measure for outside Japan export, but with PS3 disc versions in EU, DL-only in US while the 360 gets its a bonus pack, I can only see this as a self-defeating clusterf*ck.
WipEout HD says "hello".
But who else other than Sony is saying that?
N4G getting a new face lift... hmmmmmmmmmmm
About time, they should do something with the 'agree/disagree' feature, perhaps have a total agree/disagree counter on your profile or everyone to see.
I'm thinking they should have a whole new process for approving stories since half of the stuff on here is junk anyways.
I'm glad they're getting a new facelift, need some changes. Plus the interface really looks out of style.
I've seen it already. I'm not allowed to say much about the subject though. Many things remain the same but there are some good changes they made. Everything looks a lot newer and cleaner. It's a good improvement. Also, there's a lot more of the color blue.
The only real update they need is getting rid of all the fanboys, but of course that is impossible.
you're asking the impossible lol. That's what drives N4G.
and they need better mods as well.
A facelift eyy, no more wrinkles :D
I think they should implement an IQ test with 80 as a minimum requirement to create a user. All current members should be subjected to the test and kicked out if they fail to meet the demanded level. cmrbe - you might as well say goodbye right now.
So Playstation Network has no hardware limitations? PS: N4G should get rid of that silly bubbles system and the disagree / agree system.
And yet we have disaster examples like Record of Agarest War which is both over-sized and overpriced, and no one making SHMUPS of a Stardust HD quality. Just that Amiga level crap on the 360 - and the SP3 can't even get those!
True, Superstardust HD is amazing looking, and the price is fantastic. One of the cheapest PSN titles back in the day.
cross game chat
PSN has cross game chat. It also has 6-way video chat.
Is that all? is it worth the $50?
Since when is an online service considered "hardware"?
Everybody could have told you that PS3 doesn't have any limitations on hardware what so ever, if you play Uncharted 2, KillZone 2, God Of War 3 I don't see limitations in those games.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... Would love that water on Waverace type game:)
PC... is only legitimately does everything
Exactly. The PC can do everything the PS3 and Xbox 360 can do and the PC can do more. Those who disagree are living in la la land.
1.RROD 2.freezing 3.burning down houses 4.disc scratching 5.DVD9GB only in Standard definition 576p 6.Xbox Live fees 7.DLC fees 8.Hard Drives 9.No built in Wi-Fi Support 10.No bluetooth Support 11.Upscaled DVD player WOW! bots you have a lot of limitations on your console.
1.Pretty much fixed. 10% Fail rate. 2.What freezing? I have no issues. 3.Are you dumb? 4.I'll admit this is a problem they need to fix. 5.Yeah, too bad were using DVD15 and DVD18 now. 6.You pay for the cross game chat. Just like you will when PSN Premium comes out. 7.You pay the same price for DLC too moron. 8.What about them? do you really need more than 60?,120?,250? 9.Oh well. if you want a decent connection you might as well go wired. 10.What do you need bluetooth for? We have a headset that comes with the console for that. 11. lol, dvd. WOWWWW.. PS Fanboys really know how to pick out the dumbest idea's.
1. 10%? Thats improvement? 10 FAILURE RATE IS TERRIBLE. Thats honestly pathetic, showing how far bots have lowered their standards that 1/10 consoles failing is considered "Fixed" 2. You're one of the few. Out of the 5 people I know with xboxes, 2 have had theirs fail more than once. Playing my friend Chris's, it stutteres on GTA 4 all the time 3. Invalid Point, but it does overheat 4. Yep 5. Which STILL doesnt compare to the 50GB's available in Blu-Ray 6. $50 for X-game chat? Rip off much? And PSN premium will be optional, and you still get online. Xbox, pay or nothing 7. True, but with the xbox points system they screw you and you pay more in the long run as you have leftover points or not enough, so you buy more. PSN lets you pay Exact with a thing called real money 8. Yes, my 80GB is running out of space and Im thinking of upgrading. And on the PS3, i can do it without wasting mass money 9. My Wireless works fine. 10. Because we can use ANY bluetooth headset, as well as connect other devices. And bluetooth controller range is almost double the xbox's 11. Ya, Lol, DVD. It sucks now, so why still use it?
Apparently a lot, because nobody wants to make one, chess would make a great online game, with downloadable tables/pieces as dlc id also like to see pong updated for online play, and have a madness 16 player game
I would second that, online chess, checkers. I'm surprised MS hasn't already done it because they have it on MSN, surely it could be ported?
Im not sure if they still have this, but located on the second floor near the big TV within the Mall inside Home, there are 4 tables of Chess for whoever wishes to play. They are almost always filled up with people wanting to play. Its pretty cool and simple, Ive played it a couple times myself.
Yeah BeaAurther get rid of fanboys like u. Not going into detail to give u the pleasure of trying to (break something down) but that's all i'll say and others know your a fanboy too. Probably the biggest on N4G as much as u stay on here. Get a life.
This is good news, again here is an example of what a good quality system this is.
i feel psn is missing are a few key features that i would personally like to see and use for free of course. -voice notes/voice messages -cross voice chat -multiple logging IDS on a single unit. -a Universal game invite system -ability to listen to music even when browsing the store -support for 3rd party browsers like chrome,firefox ect -trophy support for psp games(these can be simply added to your overall total trophy count on psn) -psp to ps3 communications(ability to message buddies from the psp to ps3 vice versa) -1 single universal id 2 platforms(whenever you are online on the psp your friends on the ps3 would know this and vice versa) -ps2,dreamcast,Saturn,genesis games on the store with HD enhancements and trophy support to boot. -background patching( this will normally work through the original game install, once the game is register this way the ps3 when online will automatically update and patch which ever game has an update to it. All in the background while you play other games or simply run other applications. -Auto settings, the system should auto set its settings to the highest settings possible if the right connections are detected by the system itself. Whether that's audio, display or even network settings. -Instead of life with PlayStation, gamers based on their zip code entries via psn registration information. will get a fix time, date, and even current up to date weather. all this info is display in real small image-try that's located on one's ID box. which should also display trophy count and level as well. -based on one's setting whether private or public, whether your web browsing or browsing the store, or even watching a bluray movie these info should display in simple words. Example md32 watching quantum of solace BD or..md32 Browsing the store ect... now if you have a private setting it will still display some form of info just not in so much detail like md32 watching BD movie...instead of the above. that's pretty much it, if anything else i would like to see a revamp xmb something in full 3D, you know like that move minority report video shown a couple months back that alone with everything i just listed would just about do it for me.
