Is Sony about to go one better than Microsoft by offering all PS3 titles digitally on day one?
They're just too large for DL.
yeah i don't expect to see allot of first party Retail games unless of course they are dumb down
at the disagree's really? good luck DL games like Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, Little Big Planet (and this been confirmed to large for a download by the devs along time ago) God of war 3, MGS4 all these i belive are +30GB That what i mean by not seeing many first parties ps3 games they are just 2 large to DL and not many people have the bandwidth And what i mean by dumb down is some of the data being ripped off the game to make it a smaller size or they could just compress the game allot (which will dumb it down in graphics) MGS4 is going to need to be compressed allot
thats true imagine someone wants to buy MGS4 thats going to take them weeks to download might not be ps3 games but mayb ps2 games
PS2 game would make sense along with 3rd party PS3 games (because we know 3rd party Multiplat games are allot smaller(Most)) I hope they reveal HD collection at this E3
PS2 games seem more likely and wouldnt kill the low bandwith users. Most of the DL's would take up just as much space as the old Capcom PS3 game installs. 5Gbs
if this is part of the psn premium then it will be worth it
Amen bro , I will definitely upgrade my PSN ..
this would be cool, if all PS3 games are included...this will allow audiences all over the world to enjoy the diverse games that we dont get to see in N.America and vice-versa...one way i could see this working is if the game is already loaded through cloud computing/storage...all one would need is a strong internet connection to be able to sync the game to their PS3...idk if this is a possibility...idk much about cloud storage...so if someone knows if this is possible, do let me know...it would be much appreciated
That might be true, but I think it should be for the user to decide. I don't know that I would download games that often, but it should be an option.
Possibly for PS2 titles. Don't think it'll happen anytime soon for full BD games.
I doubt that. That's one downside to blu-ray I guess - insanely large game sizes. MGS4 I can't imagine someone downloading. Especially if you live in a country or have an ISP where they give you monthly/yearly/daily caps. Unless they compress the hell out of those games.
I can not believe you just said MASS storage is a DOWNSIDE to Bluray!!! That storage is the reason why Bluray is sooooooo much better than DVD. I don't see them selling every PS3 game day one as download. PS2 I pray but not PS3.
Come E3. I want to be left dazed.
Sony has been on a bit of a roll the past year.
Makes more sense. PS3 game would take away my HDD space. Not that I'm saying it will actually happen.
thsi whole time we the consumer have been like when are we going to get this sony when are we going to get that but it seems sony has had somethings in its plans for awhile 3d being one of them and motion control being another one. but the thing tha tthey have also been doing is have impecable timing and doing a wait an see approach ten coming out with something better.
No way this is gonna happen. yet - We wish! but no way
I know this is off topic, but is anyone's PS Store working?? I can sign into my account, but when I open the Store it says 'playstation store' and then its a blank black screen.
That'd be neat. But don't kill yourselves, Sony. Keep it simple for now. Deliver the things we've wanted first, then indulge us with the rest. I'm sure we'll be satisfied with the top five most requested features on PSBlog.Share until you sneak in some other cool features.
like to have a physical copy of the game.But im sure publisher,devs etc dont like the fact that we can re sell the game and they dont make any money off the used sale game market.
"one better than Microsoft" why not "one better than PC"? Oh, because PC is already better XD why not "one better than Wii"? Oh, because Wii too popular doesnt count XD
is the ability to download and play PSP games on the PS3 without the PSP.
Im gonna keep saying it until it is here...but Sony...Im happy for your improvements in the US and other big countries and imma let you finish, But Canada still doesnt have a video store.
being offered, but not first party. as far as i've seen, there's yet to be a first and second party PS3 title that is less than 15gigs (not counting games already offered for DD like Warhawk, Siren, GT5: Prologue, and SOCOM: Confrontation). third party titles, however, may be fair game, and a good idea to boot. there are a few games i most certainly wouldn't mind having on my HDD for easy boot up. i'd have to upgrade my HDD however, as i'm still using the 60gig that came with my system.
wont happen, the retailers would boycott the ps3 like some did the pspgo.
Do you see retailers boycotting the 360 since the games-on-demand arrival? No. Because it is not a download only console.
by the time i finish dowloading god of war 3. i could have gone to the store to buy and come back like 10 times
It's more than a rumor, there is a big official survey on this and psn+ and the prices of the content...etc...
Streaming PS3 games is more of a posibility than downloading them
