Great Sony but…

-Killzone 2 needs bigger maps
-Socom needs a remake (no one plays it anymore even though its pretty good now)
-Fat Princess needs to come out :-/
-Valkyria Chronicles needs TROPHIES!
–PS3 NEEDS CROSS GAME CHAT


6

+ phinnv8 on April 11th, 2009 at 12:49 pm said:

Also…

-Release Final Fantasy VII here in US on PSN, it would be huge and all over news sites, make it render in wide screen (trophies & 1080p would be cool too)

-Lower the price of the PS3 already.
-PS3 needs CROSS GAME CHAT.
-Valkyria Chronicles needs trophies.

(sigh) I was really looking forward to the Fat Princes news. Out of all the great games coming out this year, Fat Princess is the one I am most excited about. It’s like waiting for LBP to come out all over again!

@3,4
-Yes and Yes
-Choose one only because if we had both those featurs one would become useless.
-At least its optional
-No
-Yes
-No
-No
-WTF
-Yes for PS2 – Movies already has XMB unless YOU need to specify more “XMB doesnt pause the movies”

BTW im not being but an ass but havent you noticed that Eric Lempel doesnt listen to feedback? C’mon who the fudge asked for TEXT CHAT? All im saying is your “feedback” isnt helping since Sony doesnt listen to feedback

I never commented before, but I figured this might get a reply. Do you have any word if any games or applications are coming down for the Playstation Eye in 2009? I’ve been considering getting one after I saw the video for the eyepet thing. Thanks in advance.

Weren’t we suppose get an update for Life With PlayStation in Spring?

@14
It does not make the other one useless because one of them gets saved and one of them is live and unsaved. If I send you a voice message right now while you aren’t on PSN you’d get it it. If the user you are sending the message to dosen’t have a headset they can still also get the message. It dosen’t make the other thing useless. Also because you have to invite the person for private chat.

I don’t see why you don’t want a faster loading XMB and profiles, they did improve loading on 2.70 though.

Like i’ve said adding a symbol that shows how many message you have prevents you from having to manually check your inbox. That’s why Facebook, Forums, Emails and all sorts of things all have things like:

Inbox (0)
Messages (0)
New Messages(3)

because it informs you without making the user manually check stuff.

If you get a message from someone why wouldn’t you want it to automatically open that message when you push the PS button?

Sony better have been busting their balls to get FF7 on the US store for the US release of FF7ACC or I’m going to be completely pissed off at you guys. There is no bigger game than FF7 that should have been day to date in all regions than FF7 for PS Store release. Bad enough they have Metal Gear Solid (must have) and all of the Resident Evils (which I don’t even play) in Japan Store.

Any news on MAG release date?


22

+ The_Punisher111 on April 11th, 2009 at 2:52 pm said:

@18

Ok ok ok ok
Just be hella more specific next time
“Faster XMB”
People are gunna think youre lazy because you cant wait 3 sec. for it to load. I understand that new games – XMB is slow – be more specific
“Because it informs you without manual check”
Ummm…. dude? Press Triangle on the Message Box then it would have all of that


23

+ Disko on April 11th, 2009 at 3:01 pm said:

Any news on Bomberman Ultra?


24

+ jakinov on April 11th, 2009 at 3:01 pm said:

um the whole idea is so you don’t have to push triangle or go to your message box the whole idea is anywhere on your XMB you’ll always see a mail symbol and number beside telling you how many new messages you have like how forums, emails and social networking sites do it.


25

+ jakinov on April 11th, 2009 at 3:03 pm said:

Also it dosen’t make you lazy if you don’t like to wait it makes you impatient it makes me lazy that I don’t want to keep checking my message box manually to look for new messages however should still be fixed by adding a mail symbol like I said above.

I agree with most of the ideas for firmware, but would like faster download speeds from game updates.
Took me less than 10 minutes to download 2 HD game trailers, yet gave me an ETA of 45 minutes to download a 15mb update on wipeout HD!, also took my mate a night to download the LBP updates. Theres something wrong there.

So the “e-mail sign” concept is like the same way as the XMB Clock?

Oh yeah forgot to add in that next week is going to be awesome, with GI magazine coming out. We got MAG info, Bioshock 2 info, and Assassins Creed 2 info. Also I’m expecting more on Fat Princess.

Oh yeah forgot you guys said FW 3.00 was coming out next week too. :P If that were to happen I would be soooo happy.
