As everyone anticipates the release of the PlayStation Vita in the United States and Europe, there are some features on the handheld that gamers might find extremely useful if you who use the PlayStation Network service.
This is pretty cool. I personally would love to see a Search feature added to Vita/PS3 like the official Playstation website has now, where you can look up PSN IDs and compare trophies. You hear about monsters like HAKOOM who has 250 Platinums but you can't check it out cause the guy's already got max friends.
Cant u send him a message and use that message to look up his trophies?
I honestly don't know. I think you need to at least be friend pending to compare. But maybe. I should check.
here you guys go :) http://us.playstation.com/p...
http://us.playstation.com/p... You can look up anyones trophies just by going to http://us.playstation.com/m... and typing in their name in the box. EDIT: Damn Nitrowolf just barely beat me to it.
you can do what kreate said from the PS3 send the username a blank message. highlight the sent message and hit triangle. select profile.
To all above. Thanks. I know you can use the website. Just thought they could integrate it into the XMB or Vita. Cool that the message trick works. I am sure Vita will do tons with friends. They already are really stepping up the social aspects and how the community interacts. Really taking PSN to a new level.
@kreate ***Cant u send him a message and use that message to look up his trophies?*** lol... that is a pretty creative work around, but if it works. Now I will know if I get random blank messages.
when does PS3 got a new update or feature
Doubt we'll see anything major until the PS4
lol you 2 we just got a whole bunch of vita intergration and cloud service aswell don't forget they added new auido codecs aswell.
Then ps4 and nextbox comes out, the psn will look stone age when next box gets like some more awesome godly features that will be useful. Sony better future proof the shii out of the ps4. @Soldierone Ever played a xbox 360? Yeah it rarely happens..
wow desperate delusional/denial xbox girl's attack ! reality : you are paying for a similar service, on an inferior hardware, with way less exclusives (no internet browser, bluray, etc)
Because the internet browser is just so amazing
Not gonna happen, better put the resources in the next console, PS3 cannot handle a browser correctly, so you shouldn't expect much
@kikizoo Lol you serious? This is about psn. And you bring hardware and games into this. That is just low.
@kikizoo Xbox Live has had this "Friend of Friend" feature since 2007: http://nslog.com/2007/11/27... Xbox 360 also has cross game chat that isn't possible on the PS3 and a host of other gaming related features such as beacons and party system that doesn't exist on the PS3. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... I wouldn't call that "inferior" hardware....
Here's hoping that the ps4's UI is heavily influenced by the vita...
wii's internet rocks ;D
about time. they now have to integrate the PSN to their webpage, in other words, being able to send messages and stuff from the website.
Oh god, thinking of that just made me think of how easy it would be to spam people....
You could always add them to the block list :)
Now that the Vita is released the PS4 specs must be fairly solid. I'm sure both will be made to work with one another. Can't wait for the E3 reveal.
hmm or gamescom or TGS at gamescom is where they reviled the ps3 slim and the last psp ( well i think it was the last psp)
I thought it would be cross game chat or whatever that thing everyone wants is called.
PS Vita does have Cross Game chat http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Well I'm uninformed. Thanks for letting me know.
Awesome video! i was wondering when are going to get a party chat/cross game chat demo... I love it! questions... 1. can we party chat/ cross game chat with ppl on the ps3 or is it just psv owners only... I dont remember if sony said we can or we cant... 2. how many ppl can we party chat/game chat with on the psv/ps3? anybody feel free to answer these questions ok... thank you...
@Nelly. Party chat allows 8 people to be in it. No idea about Ps3/PSV cross chat but I don't see why not, its all PSN
Shared play history and friend counting feature seems new too.
I have a feeling that Sony will roll out a huge firmware once the Vita is fully launched around the world. Hopefully it'll happen and add some new features on PS3 that the Vita currently has.
Yeah i hope they improve remote play because at the moment no PS3 game can be played via the Vita remotely.
they did that big update in ver 4 why would they have a other update?
That is pretty neat but at least the give the option to make your lists private "While this pretty much invades someone’s privacy, there is an option however that allows you to make your own friend list private."
I'd like to have a feature like on XBL to measure time spent with my games. Some games have it built-in but not all. I think I spent about 2000 hours with it but that's a rough estimate.
What I'd really want them to implement in the psn is a hide/remove trophy feature.
if this is a success, then they'll do it on psn too
Can't wait till 22th february. :D
Just pre-ordered mine.....can't wait!! :D
@TheBrit *cough*it's free on PSN*cough*
I was thinking about importing from Japan, but I think there should be more games available when it's out in NA, I'd better wait.
isn't that called MUTUAL FRIENDS in facebook? Is that what they are talking about>?
For some reason i would not care if somehow sony could track my position.. if possible.. anyway im excited for this feature and id love for it too come to PS3.. i might actually pick up a vita! Hopefully Monster hunter will come to it eventually!
