What The PlayStation 3 Needs
I currently own all 3 of the new consoles right now Playstation 3 and Wii are falling behind in interface and online features. I just have a lot of ideas on what needs to be changed and what needs to be added and I hope SCEA looks at them and takes them into consideration. Sony’s got to get one step ahead rather then 5 steps behind. I need help from everybody to keep this topic alive and say they support these features. The more support means it’s a bigger demand means SCEA is going to need to do something.
(2) Single Voice Messages In-game and Out of Game | Private Chat in-game | XMB Cross Game Invites
(3) Add MKV support
I thoguht the Playstation 3 is supposed to offer and supprot High Definition content when it dosne’t support one of the best High Definition formtats. The Xbox 360 dosen’t but it’s pretty much on par right now with file types and codecs.
One of my ideas is to add another section on the ‘XMB’ called applications where companies can develop applications to be used in-game and out of games. That way the PlayStation 3 would be able to do even more and the gaming experience would be improved. Applications while in-game can be of benefit to the gaming experience by adding things that people like, for example screenshot saver and video recorder for sharing, the ability to run game guides purchased through the PlayStation Store and the ability to talk to people using PC instant messengers. From my research I learned that one of the synergistic processing units is dedicated only for the ‘XMB’ therefore integration of applications may be easier.
(5) Playstation 2 Backward Compatibility
PlayStation 2 backwards compatibility should be available for purchase through the PlayStation Store later so people who bought a SKU without the feature can get it after seeing as it’s partial software emulation anyways.
(6) PSN and Profile accounts set up for each each controller
It ruins some games like Resistance 2 because you can only sign in to one Playstation Network account while Online. Allow this and online will change because this feature aswell has been availible on the Xbox 360 already since launch. This will allow Co-op Multiplayer.
(7) PSN Store, Music, Video for ALL, PS2 Games, faster, etc.
Sony needs to give Canada and the rest of the world a video store already. The video store currently is only in the United States. I understand about the UK and Asia but Canada still. They get movies and TV shows the same time the US does. Most of the shows Canada shows is from the US and our channels are even from the US. Where is the music? They are currently letting Microsoft sell their music. When they don’t even have there own store yet selling it. It’d be great for Little Big Planet because that way importing music can be used without being abused. Sony has a big advantage being a Music company and there not using it. How about selling us PS2 games you could make so much more money selling the triple titles but Sony doesn’t have any plans!
(8) PS2/PS1/ Movies/ In-game XMB
Why can’t I talk to my friends while I’m doing stuff like that. It needs to be fixed because I don’t want to exit my movie or game just to see what they said.
(9) More Developed Profiles
Who the hell is this guy who added me, without the first few features I mentioned I can’t really ask him I should view his profile and see. Look here he’s this level and that’s his picture I KNOW WHO THAT IS. What I’m getting at the profiles should be way more developed and look better it’s gray boring and lacking infomration such as your friends’ friends list. Common Sony it’s been almost 2 years ! Even if it is a paid service most of the money Microsoft probally makes goes to the fast servers.
Things That it should have:
- View Friends’ friends to find people you know easier
- Name, Emai, Age, Location, Favourite Game, etc.
- most played game
- player ratings
- Report Player
The XMB gets a little dull after a while and to make it better how about more effects, reflection effect for each icon that can be turn on and off, more font choices, more icons, customizable sounds, other moving cool backgrounds, etc.
