Gamersmint: "We look at a few ways by which they will be able to do so during their press conference at E3 this year, which is going to be held on June 7 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in LA."
I would very much love to see cross-game chat.
Yeah, stfu please with these articles. What's done is done.
free games and PSN + for a month is enough for me to say apology accepted
a check of a million dollars might do it
Not gonna happen. Microsoft has the patent i think. I might be wrong thought.
it has nothing to do with the patent. It's the OS memory footprint. With patents, you can always get around it with different methods. Sony has a lot of smart people. They would have already figured it out. With regards to the articles, well Kaz already had the public apology regarding the outage; and we get the PSN+ free for a limited time (for those who currently don't have it) and some free games. I bet at E3, they'll only spend maybe a couple of minutes addressing the issue. I could be wrong, but with so much negative publicity regarding the PSN hack, I think they want to concentrate on the positives.
He gets dislikes cause he said he wanted Cross-game chat? Wow, you fanboys are so selfish. If Sony added Cross-game chat right now, would you use it? Of course you would. Then stop hatin' on Cross-game chat, gosh. Sure I can live without it but wanting it isn't a bad thing.
Yeah no shit....FANBOYS ARE RETARDED...why would anyone disagree with an additional FEATURE for the PS3? That makes no sense. I would love to see it. Cross-game chat would make things a helluvalot easier to get into the same freaking game in Socom 4. Instead of using my phone to say "nope, it's full...back out" Edit: @Kon I'm pretty sure MS doesn't have a patent on it. Steam has it, X-fire, Skype...
Stop telling me what I would use, you have no idea. And stop blaming everything you disagree with on"fanboys". Did it occur to you that people actually disagree with the sentiment expressed for a variety of reasons?
@FredEffinChipin: Yeah, and what other reason than being a loyal fanboy would make you NOT want Cross-game chat? Dude its an EXTRA FEATURE. Its not like we're gonna lose exclusives for it. Its an EXTRA FEATURE. get it? EXTRA. Gosh...I swear...people on N4G these days..
The system resources for Xgame chat has to come from somewhere. I would rather they put those resources into better games than some shitty voice chat when I can just use TS or VENT. So in short, yes their is a reason I wouldn't want an extra FEATURE!
@ Black-Helghast, it's not that people don't want or wouldn't use x-game chat. It's the fact that for the past 4 years people have been whining for it in every update thread across the internet and it's tiresome. It's like taking a cross country trip and having a 4 year old in the backseat asking, "are we there yet?" all along the way. At some point you want to stop the car, turn around and lay the smack down.
I don't care to talk to people who aren't playing the same game as me. I don't even care to have a conversation with people in-game on a topic other than what's happening in-game. If it's so imperative that I must speak to someone while I'm gaming, then they have my phone number. If they don't have my phone number, I don't need to be talking to them anyway.
Screw cross game chat I want party feature. All I care about is being able to NOT hear the dumb-asses in a lobby and ONLY hear my friends when we rape on Battlefield.
@solidjun5 Just because sony has smart people, doesn't mean they are the ones calling the shots. You can't plan on being hacked, but you can respond better, and be more vocal with your fanbase. We have NO ETA on the PS store returning, and still no cross game chat, and backwards compatibility is gone.Sure i have it now, but if my PS3 dies...it's GONE. The games and PSN+ plus were a nice offering...two weeks ago, but i already have three of the games and have yet to see anything materialize. I love sony, but they have some amends to make. I don't expect Kaz to commit seppuku or anything, but just show your fans you give a damn.
I'm not saying they had the best response. I know...Sony's lack of communication during the downtime was terrible IMO. However, I didn't stress over it. In addition, when it was returned, Kaz issued an apology and he said it would return. At this point, while frustrated, we can't control it. There's nothing we can do. As for you having those 3 games: I understand and you would like more or something better. But, you said they have to make amends. I don't know. It's not like they were the cause of the shut down. Those hackers where. As for the smart people comment? That was in response to Cross-game chat. Not the apology thingy. But anyway, I understand you're frustrated but at this point, the realization is that the store is not up. I can't do anything about it so I won't get frustrated by it. it'll be up soon. Hopefully today. :-/
Yeah, they should give us some features this time instead of useless fws
Well, the firmware updates aren't useless they're just not noticeable to you, the player.
MGS4 Trophy patch. I would forgive Sony and Kojima.
That would be even more awesome!
I agree with this. I would love MGS HD collection. The first game I would play is MGS3. My favorite game of last generation. I spent so many hours on this game and would do it again and the tragic story of Big Boss was so great, I would play it again....even though I can watch it because I have Subsistence. lol EDIT: Trophy patch for MGS4 would be great but at this point, 3 years later, I doubt they'll spent resources doing it. :-( oh well.
What did Kojima do?
prevent the network from getting hacked, burn him at the stake I say!!!
i second that notion, MGS4 trophy patch! Come on Konami, you can do it!
"PSP Remastered games to be priced below $15" I just don't see that happening.
How abooouut.... announce awesome games!
stupid people will never be satisfied no matter WHAT you offer them.
Sony will fluff their lineup with games that won't release until 2014-15 and the fanboys will forgive but the average shopper will always remember psn being a risk
The ps3 sales say otherwise troll. It has been outselling the xbox and wii for months now.
That comment makes me a troll? PS3 outselling the 360 and Wii? Boy the kids on this site are delusional. I've had a PS3 since 2007 and picked up a 360 last week. Praise Thi lord the almighty PS3
Which is a tactic Sony has been doing in almost every E3. They always show teasers of games that aren't even in production. All they need to do is show Kratos flexing his muscles in a 5 second clip and the sony fanboys go bananas. Sony knows their fanbase are rabid and knows how to sucker them. Yes, the ps3 has been selling decent, but the 360 is having it's best run EVER! The ps3 is not outselling the 360 worldwide.
@Firstkn1ghT, That's a very good point that you and Kingdoms make. I noticed that as well. It's just something for their more...crazy, of their fanbase to come on forums and post giant lists about. The funny thing is the people that come on here with these giant lists of games wont' purchase even a quarter of that. I buy a lot of games for all three consoles and even I only plan on getting four or five out of those. At least on day one, the rest I'll wait to pick up used in the bargain bin or not at all.
ha ha....still here acting like its only one side who get wet over upcoming games.. 1st thing is some games take 1 year, some 2 some 3 some 4.. I remember an E3 being 'won' according to some by a multiplatform announcement that STILL hasnt been released.... was you there down hyping....i somehow doubt it 2 There are no gaping lists from 360 fans because theres not much to bloody list and many of the said lists are occupied by many kinect titles (nothing wrong with kinect but u get where im coming from)...its almost become a taboo subject 3 Many would prefer to know that games of varying types and and genres will be released. This greenburg mantra of underpromis whatever is all good IF you actually bring sh!t to the table imo. IF knowing about games in advance bothers you then dont seek it. Dont watch e3 because the games showcased/teased there wont usually be released for at least a year. Kingdoms for example. Its how it goes. 4 IF it were the other way around the 360 fraternity would not complain on the whole. Whats wrong with knowing whats coming out. @mendicant im not sure if youre saying these listed games dont sell but that shouldnt be the point now should it. Id list mlb 11 even though i dont like baseball games. Should we only list games we intend to buy now.. Many guys buy many games, some like less common games which TEND to sell less...Should sony stop pushing exclusives because net fanboys dont have any buying intentions...c'mon. Give credit where its due. Sony have a wide variety of higher quality games because of the foundations they've built spanning generations and the model they've chosen. They dont always get it right but if you look at it from purely a numbers game the likelihood is you'll get more gems. Show me a teaser of any of the 5 games i want and ill be a happy dude because it shows future commitment and ambition to give types like me boners so that for me is the apology....the promise of more games and future support
EVERYONE hypes trailers of games that won't be out for a while. That's how this industry works. Did you see the most recent VGAs? Activision showed a trailer for Prototype 2 which isn't out until 2012. THQ did the same thing with their new horror game. At the last e3, there was a trailer for True Crime that was supposed to come out last year which now no longer exists. And if ps3 isn't outselling 360, how do you explain the two systems being close in worldwide sales when the 360 came out a year before the ps3 and at a lower price point?
at least they have games to show..but hey just remember all those 3rd party games you drool over will be on the PS3 too.. Oh how the irony of the turnaround since the PS3 launched...and fanboys calling the delaystation and that it as no games....now so many quality titles are pumping out it's hard to keep up...lol So glad I backed the "loser" this gen as I am in gaming heaven..lol
exactly Firstkn1ghT. how many years has FFXIIIvs been on their list? oh well, looks like they get to add it to this years list again. same with Last Guardian.
PS+ is $50 a year. He said it was 60 and that it should be reduced by $10. FACE PALM
So the welcome back program isn't enough?
What do they need to apologise for, sorry we stood up to hackers and where made a target by supporters of george and anonymous.
Enough with the 'how should Sony apologise'. I don't know what planet everyone was on during the last few months but Sony already apologised. They even did a live televised apology.
Sony should not apologize to all those morons writing stupid articles just because they happen to have a keyboard and internet connection.
Why should they apoligise explin this to me for im at a loss. What did they do wrong?.
Nothing. You're 100% correct.
bring back the psn back in japan so everything could go back to normal
Cross-game chat would be nice, like others have said. But Sony should tell whiners to STFU and suck it up. Either get over it or get out (or maybe that's just how I feel). As far as I know, NO ONE was affected by this "scandal" so people need to stop acting like whiny little bi***es. I challenge anyone to think of a similar situation where another company did a better job of cleanup and resolution than Sony did here. Seriously. Grow up and find some other things to complain about.
@darksied, I agree with your basic point but you "challenge" people to find other companies that have had the same? Are you kidding? Almost every major corporation out there has been in their shoes. Sony isn't unique in this at all. There are dozens of examples of companies having to fix a major issue and then satisfying their customer base. It's what you have to do to survive.
Messed up, should have replied to this. Read my other reply to my original message. But I think you misunderstood what I was saying. I think that Sony did a better job of cleanup that other companies out there. Some companies don't even tell you when they've lost your info; others just send a letter and say sorry, with a few quotes from their privacy statement. If you know of some companies that have had issues of this scale (tens of millions, so I can only assume it's a credit card company or something ?) and have dealt with it better, than please, let me know. I've never heard of one though.
@medicant Must have misunderstood. I didn't say that other companies have never had to deal with this. I'm assuming that if you're a big company, you've already dealt with hacks and such. Maybe not to this extent, but similar. What I meant was, if some other company (a credit card company, for example) gets their info stolen, what do they do for you? They send a politely worded letter, send you out a new cc (if the breach was bad enough that that is warranted), help you with any unauthorized purchases, etc. But that's it, only as far as that for the most part. Sony is giving you 2 things: identity protection, and free games. And people STILL think they have something to prove and need to provide more? I have received emails recently from best buy, meijer, chase, bank of america, etc. a lot of others, can't remember them all, where they're mentioning stolen info. All you get from them is an apology letter. I haven't seen a company do a better job than Sony. Maybe some people have had something like this happen to a company they're attached to, but I haven't heard of anything better. Even MS had that crappy xbox live game that they gave for free that one time, but that was it. Point is, in my opinion, people need to stop whining and focus on something else. Why people would think Sony owes them anything (not to mention, anything MORE) is beyond me.
I am with you on this, had the same emails from the companies such as Best Buy infact it was just before Sony got hacked. I received an email of apology and advice on how to what action to take incase I was unlucky and my info and accounts were indeed breached. Sony went further than most by just offering a years identity protection and then went further with the other free offerings which are games, movie rentals, home items (in other words something for every type of user)...and still people act like Oliver Twist and want more.... I am yet to see 1 single proved case of someone directly losing cash from c/card due to this breach...in reality we lost access to online games for a few weeks and the ability to spend more cash on products on PSN...Oh the hardship of it all... well I guess if you have no life other than online gaming it was a hardship...but if it is really that bad for you I suggest you spend a little further time away from gaming as it is obviously taking over for you and your missing out on the biggest game of all LIFE

'AAA titles'. lol This lady's and gentlemen, is where the "PS3 has way more exclusives/IPs than Xbox" "argument" comes from LMAO Read the list. Ape Escape Move?!?!?! NO WAYYYYY!!!! I MUST PLAY THAT! IF ONLY I HAD A PS3!!! =( STAR HAWK?!?!? Man, I have been missing out. PS3 TRUE AAA titles=Xbox 360 true AAA titles. Fact. Quantity over Quality since day 1--sad.
You sound like you're dealing with a little anxiety
Xbox true AAA exclusives: Halo Gears Forza PS3 true AAA exclusives: God of War Killzone Gran Turismo Uncharted Resistance That's just off the top of my head but actually "true AAA exclusive" is really just a subjective term.
I read your comment. Twice in fact. Could you possibly retype it so it is legible? Thankyou.
Next time i'll just disagree like everyone else Rikan. Just to clarify. I read your comment. Was interested to see what point you were trying to make and you sent me a message saying I couldn't read. I've read your comment again and I still don't know what to make of it. Is it sarcasm? Is it you being a fanboy? All I know is that it is a mess. Also you really hurt my feelings /s
Sony doesn't need to apologize for the PSN outage. Its over. They just need to show up, and do there thing. PS3, Xbox, Nintendo are all going to have a good E3. This year's E3 will be great for games and gamers. I really hope the next generation of consoles looses the juvenile console-comparison 'arguments'.
Bubbs and an agree for you on that. I'm so sick of people complaining. Is it possible for critical thinking to even happen anymore?
Just feed me games and I'm good to go.
I am so freaking tired of hearing about what Sony needs to do to make things up for this. Get over it. It's a free service to begin with and they are giving us a bunch of free stuff. They've made good so please can we move on already? The same goes for complaining about Microsoft and their hardware issues. It happened, it sucked and they fixed it. I forgave MS just like I did Sony. These lame attempts at creating "news" need to stop. Both Sony and MS screwed up. They both paid the price and they both continue to provide amazing gaming experiences. They dont' love you. They don't care about your stupid fanboy crap. They want your money. They can't get our money if their products suck and so when something goes wrong, they make it right or they dont' survive. That's how the real world works. Things break sometimes. As long as they continue to provide great gaming they can have my money. When they don't do that, I won't give it to them. If they screw me and don't make it right, I won't. Simple. Both MS and Sony are taking care of us despite the past problems so please, for the love of God just drop it. I'm going to play some Reach.
They could start by bringing back the PS STORE! Not a single word from them and I'm about pissed about it. I have so many games that came with downloadable content that I can't even download because of this crap.
I think they learned with PSN being down that it's better to have a solid date than say "a few days" or make a date and then have to miss it. It will be like when they brought back online. You'll find out on the day. But it will be slow and probably go down again with everyone trying to download a bunch of stuff at once.
sony didnt have to apologize but they did and they are doing the best they can to solve all of the problems that these damn hackers did, nobody blames the hackers and act like sony is the bad guy, i would like to see if nintendo or microsoft got hit like sony did how would people react?
I believe that Sony has done enough. While they may mention PSN at E3 i dont believe they should make the whole even centered on them saying sorry.
I thought they had appoligised.. Maybe some people want Sony to beg forgiveness
Announce some games and don't make us wait 8 months in between exclusives. Wait...this is about Sony? I think they've apologized enough. Just get PSN fully restored and tell me about NGP. That's all.
I'm sick of these articles.Sony was the victim here.
