What Gamers want from the Playstation

Revolt-Tech Writes:

The Playstation 3 sure has come a long way since the disastrous launch way back in 2006, the main avenue of advancement being the evolution of PSN from a 3rd rate service to one of the best and most active gaming communities . Compared to its main rival, Xbox Live, PSN has done an amazing job for a service offered to users free of charge. They’re delivered so much… but damn it, we want more. Here’s Revolt-Techs wishlist of what we want via firmware updates by the end of 2011: (PS3)

1) More streamlined. Yes. It's not killing the PS3, and it would go unnoticed once it kicked in, but it is needed.

2) Voice Messaging. That would be nice, but a party system, would be better.

3) Inbox updates. I could care less. The item icon is good enough, but if some people want a number, then that's fine, and it should be extremely easy to add.

4) Downgrade PS Home. You read my mind. I have been thinking this for the longest. If the characters and the spaces weren't so detailed then things would load a lot faster. I'd rather have near instant loading, and micro downloads, then high polygon and great textures in what's suppose to be a social network. Drop the realism and go artistic next time.

5) Private Chat. I agree, but again not a must have.

6) Rename Friends. Not going to happen. I had the same idea, but for games. Let us organize our games based on PS1, PSP, PSN, and PS3 games. I have over 100 games, and it would be great if I could move the titles I play the most to the top for quicker access.

7) User Generated Dynamic Themes. Once again you read my mind. We can already make themes, now let us make Dynamic themes.

Good job, this was a nice change of pace for the normal n4G.

Definitely agree about the XMB, it's the only big problem I have with PSN currently. I still don't know why it loads up all the other categories that require you to go back to the Home menu to use (i.e. Video, picture, system settings, browser etc.). Just load up the Friends list and all the other bits on that category and it's a big, big help.

I agree and also a browser upgrade would great (make it google chrome).
Tony-Red-Grave  +   1462d ago
that and when playing games the XMB is omega slow its quick when your not, but during it takes awhile to load/load friends/msgs/reply/then close i know i'm not the only whos been kicked from a game because i'm not moving

Custom XMB! Cross game chat so people will shut up about it.

And for Blu Rays to actually start where I last stopped. It seems most of them don't support that. I don't know if it's the hardware or the software, but it's the one big downside of BD and seems crazy considering my PS3 still remembers the place of DVDs I haven't watched in a couple of years.

how bout you go figure out why sohy CAN"T implement X-game chat then come back and post it.

instead they should add a feature similar to X-game chat where you can speak to a friend no matter where he is in the game as long as you'r playing the same game.

EliteDave93  +   1462d ago

Same thing no? But its deffinarelt needed. i hate people how say its not needed and they dont want it. On xbox me and my friends all join a party and play whatever and chat. its fantastic. i want my ps3 to do the same.

The border layouts need some style instead of just different colors surrounding the avatar & if you agree then Log in & show your support for this suggestion & cast your vote?

Hopefully the PSP2 XMB would be better than PS3's because I really dislike the load times when trying to use it in game. Knowing that this feature is vital and was integrated later on the PS3's lifecycle, Im pretty sure they would have had better implementation if it was built on the ground up with it in mind in the beginning.

I agree, about half the stuff Sony offers for a price, and the rest-like online service are definitely free. Not like XBL=where nothing is free. The only thing I have to say--is that the the visuals, when playing music-needs an overhaul.

PS2 BC on current consoles.
Cross game chat.

That's all I want.
R_aVe_N  +   1462d ago
I want games and that is it. I don't need all that other crap as long as they are making quality games....
MarcusFenixITA  +   1462d ago
but your PS3 isn't only for games my friend. It does a lot more ... really!!!
R_aVe_N  +   1462d ago
um yes my PS3 is only for games.... It is not my entertainment hub. "I" only use it to play games.

"What Gamers want from the Playstation"

The headline says it all. "Gamers" want games.....
princeofthabay  +   1462d ago
just think of all the shit could of had if hackers werent taking up sony's time
GiantJedi  +   1462d ago
Wow I agree with all of this except Home, I don't give a crap about it or it's load times.
MagicAccent  +   1462d ago
I want passwords for folder so nobody can find my animal porn!

But seriously, a change, would be welcome. There's just so much that can be done with the XMB.
Sorting and organizing movies and music is hell, and even after hours of renaming and tweaking it still looks untidy and confusing..

Heck, even enabling removal of trophies that I don't want would be great.
