A comprehensive list of features the PSN/XMB absolutely needs. Feel free to add to the list.
play PS1 games? why a ps1 emulator? The rest of the list is great though
You are correct.
the xbox 360 has all this stuff already.
Things on that list the 360 doesn't have: 1. Pre-Purchase downloads 2. Release list calender 3. XBox emulation for all XBox 360 owners. 5. A rating system. 6. Full blade access 7. Full blade customization 9. Web browser Edit: Also, all models of the 360 don't have Backwards compatibility, since you need a hard drive for it!
Will11, what does that mean? The xbox 360 has all of this stuff... What is that? 1st. No, they don't have all of this stuff & 2nd. Let's say they did have all this stuff, the Ps3 still doesn't and that's what the list is for. If it was a list compiling xbox 360 features, then yeah; it'd be a waste of time. It's not, though. For the 2 reasons I just gave.
we should see the account email and password in the user profile :(
Good list Silogon.You should work for Sony or Microsoft to help them get their heads out of their asses
How about male-female audio random chat pairing... for all the poor male and female gamers who don't get enough time to date. lol It'd be its own little widget you could press select it when u didn't want to chat in game but wanted to chat anyway. Preferably with the opposite sex (same sex selectable option XD)
Solid list! i like the idea of pre-paid downloads! And the release date calender
Out of all the "Still needs" lists, this one is one of the worst.
is the controller battery symbol to be moves, if i wanna check the time i have to wait for it to disappear.
That too, they can have it laid out in a similar fashion to the PSP. It's a real easy fix, it's only a matter of repositioning of x and y coordinates. Though I would personally wish for a 'auto-shutdown' option for when my downloads are complete.
I believe in the next firmware that is happening :)
Sweet. Bubbles for the info. :)
I like the myspace idea, that would b off the chain.
WE CAN'T HAVE EVERYTHING! But great ideas though.
if you try sometimes you just might find you get what you need.
the myspace like idea is pretty kool but something like that already exist in the PSN it's called HOME but instead of a 2d page its actually a 3d environment showing off ur trophies and ur style, musix, & personal pics u can post up on the walls or do watever with all this stuff soon when HOME comes out i seen it in the trailers & im in the beta but yet have to wait till they release some of these features when the full thing comes out hopefully this coming month X) not sure about the video sharing yet though that's still pending due to piracy XP
worst list ive EVER seen and one of the worst articles ive ever seen on n4g. how this got accepted i dont know.
Then you wouldn't like to have any of this stuff? This is an OPINION piece of what someone would like to see included, which is an opinion in which they thought others would share but wouldn't say it unless someone else brought it up. I think it's a rather good list, actually.
1)control of my xmb using the pseye controller.just wave my hand over things that i want to use http://www.youtube.com/watc... 2)sit in front of my ps3 and pseye and the system recognizes me and brings up a list of favorites that i have been doing with ps3 and lets me choose with a wave of my hand. 3)have HOME as my xmb when i turn the system on. example: walk over to the music player to play music.walk over to the tv and watch my videos and press a button to go full screen.have a ps3 in my HOME and when i use it,it brings up the games on my hard drive or in the disc drive.have a computer sitting in the corner and when i access it,it brings up the web browser.go to a pictures frame to look at my photos.etc. anyone that has used 3DNA(which is a 3D desktop for windows)knows what i'm talking about. 4)animated background for the xmb.having the music player earth in the background of my xmb would be cool. 5)start up the system to any music wav file you wanted.and have a system turn off wave file before shut down. 6)have a 3D customizable music band when playing music on the xmb.anyone that has played ROLLING THUNDER 2 back in the day knows what i'm talking about. http://www.youtube.com/watc... speaking of,namco,make me a bionic commando style remake of this game. but anyway,there are all kinds of cool things that ps3's xmb could have.but this is just some of my wishes. apocalypse...............
Don't use red font to write stuff, it hurts the eyes. Now back on topic all i need is a normal browser with everything in it, say Firefox.
what about in game video chat? i can imagine that being pretty useful for HOME or a game like LBP where 2 or more people are working on a level at once
Cross game chat and in game music is all i want!!!!!!
number 6 and 8 forever if I can get that out of the list I'll be happy.
I think they need to improve the download speeds for PSN. I hate waiting 2-3 hours for a demos or a video. ps3 themes only take seconds,but I can download the same demo on my xbox 360 in 30-45 minutes or less. why is that? i think the myspace idea would be nice.
maybe your setup is not right, because my ps is on prwith 360 downloas, maybe even a bit faster
mine downloads pretty fast. I've never really understood what all the complaining was about.
You may need to change providers. I have never had a demo download take more than 35 to 45 min and I dont have the high end service. In most cases that includes the install.
I can relate to this guy. the top ten list is pretty good too. 1. Would be very useful as long as I can turn it off. Though if I were a Sony board member, I would have the psp use this remotly. 2. Is insane. That would be perfect. 3. Very true. Ps1 & ps2 games should also fill the psn store with downloads as well. 4. If you can use the browser to zoom than it should be no problem fitting a old classic full screen. 5. Exactly. This gen of ps3 has a new audience where everything is a push of a button. They don't have time to cross refrence or ask around about games. This eliminates the pressure of biting the bullet. 6. I'm confused a bit here. Do you mean being able to go into all settings like pics, gamercards & even system settings in game? In MGO I noticed most of my xmb cannot be used for outside communication. 7. Hellz yeah ! 8. Soon... I hope. 9. You can find porn, youtube & I stream tv shows & movies from pirate sites. Ive found numerous sites that have media compatibilty like gamersyde & gametrailers by streaming or downloading but not everyone knows how easy it is, so I agree let's update this "super computer" to be a computer thru & thru. 10. You nailed it! Ive never said this outloud but ive thought it over & over. Home should remedy this yet the 2d should be more awesome. Like someone said in the gamer zone: "I want the eyetoy"!
What I'd like is hardware integrated in xmb-music, not in-game. Let me explain, well, just like the 360 where it is the console that takes care of it and not the game. that + a better multitasking while browsing the XMB, always have the possibility to control music wherever you are in the XMB (without having to press the PS button). A bit off topic but still relevant: I have a question regarding that famous 360 feature called, private chat. How do you access it easily?
First you hit the "guide" button Then you go to your friends list Then pick the friend Then when in there you select "invite to private chat" Then you just basically wait for the other person to come on
PSN needs printable coupons for FREE BEER that I can redeem at any local store. It's awesome that I can hook up a printer to the PS3, but this would actually make me do it.
I have accounts US, UK , JAP and Aus. Out of them all Australia where I am from is the slowest. I agree with the4time2doctor0 it is super quick for me from all overseas PS stores. Get close to 1 meg a second and takes no time to download demo's etc. I'm on adsl2 connection so nothing fancy compared to other parts of the world now getting fibre :)
I believe some mixed up XMB with XBL. After i read the article i found out that its for PS3 only :D
"you cannot under any circumstance Download an application to your hdd. This kind of takes the wind out of the "set top box" theme, if you ask me. I'd like to see Sony open up their XMB and Web browser and allow various programs to run right off the HDD" LOLWUT? How does he expect PS3 to download and run applications designed to run in Windows? Taking that in mind, even downloading them would be pointless.
There are many files and applications not windows based that Sony's ps3 can run. also, by opening up the XMB and HDD for web storage people could write programs to the Ps3's OS even. It was just a literal idea, it could very well be a potential one too.
PS2 emulation for everyone, it was an epic fail to remove it.
who knew it sucked THIS much!??! WOWEEEEE
i dont think it need custom xmb i like a unified list so if i use a new ps3 or a friends its the same thats a bad idea next u cant and shouldnt xpect full xmb during amovie n stuff its dumb and i think if he thinks bout it hell realize that even to make them do this u would barely use it and if u did use it y have the movie play in the back ground hell u can take the blue ray out play a game put i back it and itll continue where u left it i think his list is mostly copied and wat he does to invent lacks foresight if u wanna see a real list there are a bunch on the ps blog like one by liferpg everything on the list is reasonable and actually helpful and wanted im not dissing this guy perse but his list is wack
locking your ps3 psn username with a password so people wont beable to play around with your stuffs while you aint home. lock and unlock. privacy.
How about a simple one - the ability to send a voice message
....one feature I thought of that would be amazing is the ability to spectate friends in whatever game they're playing. This would be done via streaming somehow via PSN and you could only watch if invited by friends. Imagine this integrated in Home where you could put your gameplay on your tv and friends could lounge and spectate. How bout it Sony? Me swears I'll be good.
The person is still not happy with all that Sony HAS done that they have resorted to "scraping the bottom of the barrel" for silly requests for a console interface that already does it's job and then some. It just feels like the author here is reaching.
Fanboy? Come on you guys give us all a bad name. If you can't find one thing you would like added to the network or interface then I am just glad you don't work for Sony. He was not bashing Sony or the PS3 just providing a personal wish list and you see it as a call to arms to defend the PS3. Get a life!
In game chat and cross game invites
Brilliant List dude ,Lets get this to SONY!!!! First oFF Calendar is a MUST Second SO is The Aspect Stretch !!For Blu ray this would be so Nice!!!! Im personally not happy with the way Flat panel HDTV's are made and not the same aspect as theatrical widescreen releases (no black bars above and below please!!)
Just wanna mention, for me PSN maxes out my download speed. This includes everything, betas, and firmwares, demos, etc. **EDIT** Just found it, you have to press (Triangle) over Account Management. I don't know why Sony did that but it's really dumb.
