They should try to work on stuff like Home or make new games on the ps3 than to try something retarded like this.

Sony is working on new games on the PS3, did you forget about MAG and God of War 3? Have you forgotten about Team ICO's new PS3 game that Sony is publishing, have you forgotten about Naughty Dog's new PS3 game that has yet to be announced, have you forgotten about Infamous, Killzone 2, and Heavy Rain? Or have you forgotten about the Twisted Metal PS3 game? Sony has the games coming, and I just shot down your comment. You can't blame Sony for trying to step out of the box and do something different. It may sound dumb to you but it could be the next big thing for the PSP.

Sony doesnt revolve around only to PS3. Sony has multiple teams in different departments.

Its like telling Bill Gates to do a better job on the Xbox360.

If you read the article, you will see that Sony said they are gonna be making games that use the gps perhipheal. Also, I didnt say they need more games, but that they should work on the ones they got coming out instead of working on games that dont appeal to us,, the hardcore gamer,, jesus,, you guys are a trip. Turning on your own kind,, wtf is wrong with you? If you guys dont think my faith in the ps3 is good enough, then check out my previous post before you decide to flame me. Oh,and for the record, I own a PS3, Wii, 360, and a psp. Freak.

No one wants to read anyone's past post before stating something. No one wants to waste their time.

Supposedly a handheld game system that used GPS and a camera to create real world environments? I guess it didn't really pan out- too many safety concerns.

But,would using the ability to use gps and play a game.would it be a pay service? Or is Sony going to make it free? I. .doubt that,but hope so.
