Pinoytutorial: After the list of social-features infused by Microsoft to Xbox Live Arcade today, one can't help but to ask if Sony will add these options for its next major Playstation Network update.
I really like that image of the XMB, sony should do something like that for sure!
It's probably too late in the lifecycle for such a drastic change, maybe for the Playstation 4? It does look good though, I'd love that kind of update!
If MS can change the 360's dash 3 times in 6yrs (with the next change coming this month), I don't think it's too late in the lifecycle for an XMB refresh.
@Wizziokid You do realise thats what you're PSN has looked like since you took it out of the box right?
I'm guessing you don't see the differences? here's the actual PSN, now compare it to that one and you should see a difference, it looks more polished and I like the top bar showing messages etc.
@Wizziokid Fully aware of what PSN looks like, had a PS3 for about 4 years now. But Wow, what a massive difference that little notification makes in the top right-hand corner...hardly smashing the boundaries of functionality is it. Oh by the way, your linked image doesn't work.
I like how they've earned an Uncharted trophy while playing Call Of Duty. :P
Lmao good spot.
Thats the first thing I saw! I was like WTF... An Uncharted trophy in a FPS shooter???
How about not updating the system every 15 minutes?
This joke is retarded, always has been. The updates are pretty infrequent, and most of them aren't even required for you to sign in.
sony dont need to learn anything from xbox live, there pretty much on par with each other, after owning both systems in my opinion psn is far more feature rich with software including things like playstation home which i love, i also much prefere the ps3 xmb to lives masses of boxes tht i just found hard to sifle through, i like the smart and sleak ps3 xmb, tho ps3 is missing the cross game chat it was something i never used with my xbox so its a feature i never missed. all this is strictly my opinion so if u prefere live, good for u lol
I'll never get back the time I wasted downloading playstation home, it seemed like such a good idea before I found out it was full of geeks dancing at each other.
lets not forget guys pretending to be girls hahaha
Lol. Come on.
ye thats true it is full of idiots, but iv met some really good people on there, im 25 and quite mature, i dont play any of the crappy games on there, but its nice to chat on there. i love psnhome, dont go on every day but all the decent people on my friends list have come from psn
Oh lumley you're trying to hard lol.
trying to hard? with what?
People are forgetting Sony already showed us a new XMB at E3 a couple years ago.Only reason more people didnt notice is because they was showing off PS Move for tha very first time. Hopefully Sony took this time too refine tweaks from that beta they showed us.
Ummmm... Sony never said that, that was the new XMB for PS3 only Vita... So who ever said that to you was lying... Sony has had more or less the same XMB for years, what makes you think they'll change it now??? Seriously when has Soy done ANYTHING the community blog asked for? Usefull stuff. Just food for thought.
Tha XBM I'm talking was running on tha PS3 in real-time go find tha footage if you dont believe me...
Will we even get a v4.0 firmware upgrade? All I want is faster access to the in-game XMB. It takes far too long to load and 95% of what it is loading is useless.
all i want is a faster in-game xmb and custom soundtrack....
These are monumentally important: Seamless multi-player logins on games. Mandatory player login support for all games. Currently, the games seem to "allow" multiplayer logins. However, the OS should handle the login, and the game should "sense" it. What I mean is, the multiplayer login should activate even within XMB, and you should jump between games while the games sense all players logged in. Change user without quitting game. Cross game parties. I'm waiting for these for PS4. All of these are major changes to how player data is handled.
