A short description on what might be coming to PSN when it goes premium.
Of all the things likely to be offered, can't think that "Netflix w/o a disc" will be one of them. That's as stupid as MS only allowing Gold accounts access to it.
one thing i would like it don't have to be in premium is for sony to fix the playstation store it has good content in there its just not sectioned very well like xbox has like>browse arcade >New>Top rated>browse Game O.D >new>top rated>browse Demo's >New>toped rated>browse Indie >New>Top rated>browse Game Addons>New>Top rated>browse its easier to do what you want or find what you want playstation store is hard unless you know exactley what you want then you can search and type it in but its got to offer more then tv on demand and netflix we pay tv license here in the uk and doubt we would get netflix
I'm not sure if your in Europe or not but the US PSN Store is sectioned very well anybody who doesnt get it is stupid.
the us store is actually much better than a lot of others...
is section very well, i can find everything very easily.
@conloles, The basic version is already superior, so their is no fear of that,
"when it goes premium" I do believe you mean "IF"
Yeah the US store is very easy to navigate. I am always baffled by the layouts of other regions.
The set out of the EU store is awful compared to the American Store and XBL. There really is no reason for it to be so bad. EU gets nothing compared to the US.
no the wording is correct, it WILL go premium. It is confirmed by Sony.
Sounds like you get alot, now let's hear something at E3, and then will probably come online shortly after that.
I hate all this netflix and facebook crap. I can watch any show, amy movie on my PC for FREE. ALL I WANT IS GOD DAMN PRIVATE CHAT.
Hahaha bubbles for funny.
The ps3 eye camera already provides private video chat for up to 4 people I believe.
is cross game chat (not text, audio and/or video).
Off topic but that pic with he gold and purple PSN icon is sick looking I think.
i hope they add more poker rooms and more card/board games as well. i hope the make it like Uproar or the other card/board game site on the net..
yeah same here, especially when such features are in like: Access to Beta Games, Early Access to All Store Content, Exclusive Experiences with Sony Brands.
Me neither. I mean its very affordable considering people who dont want to pay it can still play online while those who do want to splash out and enjoy some extras can. Its win win I think. Seperating the casual gamer who wouldnt use the system as often to get the value for money outta this from the hardcore gamer who plays almost daily and will most likely benefit from the features it offers. Looking forward to this announcement alot.
those features are worth the 60 bucks in my opinion..
Extended Console Warranty 3 Years Access to Beta Games Cross-game Voice Chat Access These three would be enough for me to pay for it. Anything else is a plus as everything I need from PSN is already free.
an extended console warranty should not be a premium feature. the thing should be set at 5 years for all consoles, 360, wii, and ps3.
Just for consoles? It would be nice if you could get 5 years as the standard for all electronics but that isn't the case. 3 years seems to be what most companies give you and an extra 3 years for for a little extra cash isn't so bad IMO considering it's not the only thing you get for your money. Plus, plenty of retail stores charge for extra warranty coverage on products anyway. Personally I'd like a pick'n'mix type of premium service where everything has it's own price and you can pick and choose the features that interest you instead of paying for all of them, using the few features you want and not using all the others you have no interest in.
I would pay for just the extended warranty. Two year warranty minimum. Everything else would just be extra perks. Gotta protect my precious backwards compatible 80gb ps3.
An extended warranty for psn premium dream on.. just use continuous play if you want an extended warranty thats around £5 a month and that covers you if you drop it or sumin.
Never heard of it. Will give me a warranty on my 3 year old PS3??
it europe only and sony suspended it temporarily because it was being abused. at least that what the website says.
Don't need warranty after 3 dead 360s I got an extra 4 years on top of my ps3 when I bought it. Not that it will break as much I am just sick of wasting money on consoles so this way I am certified to have a console for 5 years. I only want cloud storage for saves but hasn't this topic been done to death?
lol nice pic
Well if that leaked document is real then that service sounds mighty fine. I mean free access to PSone classics that in itself is one reason to get it. I dont see Live offering you free games WHATSOEVER. Not that i am complaining about LIVE or anything its just that Free games is always a good thing......hope they release price point info on E3.
Well you're not really getting to play them for free. You do have to buy the service. But I get what you're saying.
I can't tell if it means you get the game for free or just the theme for free.
Yeah you first have to buy the service. Yes it says youll have free access to PSone, PSP minis(games i guess) and Ps3/PSP themes.
It should make pancakes too. They would come out of the Bluray drive when ready. But I fear Microsoft is already ahead in this area because my girlfriend uses my 360 when her hair blower does not work.
