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.

You do realise thats what you're PSN has looked like since you took it out of the box right?

Wizziokid2445d ago

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.

caseh2445d ago


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

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?

NarooN2444d ago

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.

WitWolfy2445d ago

lumley6662445d ago
