PlayStation on Facebook: Tell Us What You Want to See

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Sep 01, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

If you’re new to the Blog, or just otherwise haven’t been paying close attention, we’re on Facebook. We’ve been syndicating blog posts, hosting contests and announcing details around upcoming meetups and events. You may already know all this. Stay with me here.

As of late, Facebook’s been cracking down on unofficial fan pages throughout the site, including those pertaining to PlayStation. Since we *are* PlayStation, we’ve decided to open our doors to all the PlayStation fans on Facebook, and have gathered everyone in one place. You can now find us at www.facebook.com/PlayStation. If you are an existing fan of the fan page formerly known as “PlayStation.Blog,” you’ve already made the move. That was easy, yeah? If you’re not, no time to join us like the present. Go on, I’ll wait.

With all these new fans (300K and counting), this is a good time for us to make updates to the fan page… but we want to get your input first. After all, it’s you who are our fans. So what should we do with our Facebook page? Please take this 1-question survey to let us know your thoughts on the subject.

We look forward to reading your replies!

I didn’t know you guys had a facebook page. Welp, I added you and now I have to write some English paper now because I have to go to English in 2 hours and I think this paper is due.

Bye everyone :P

Ummm I just read some of the comments. I haven’t been home today so I haven’t had the time to get the new update so I can’t really comment on that.

but regardless MobileTone should leave and quit trolling mai Sony blog.

Oh and also, my paper is PS3 vs 360….guess who is going to win :D

@12.

Useful features? You havent noticed that this update made Friends/Trohpies load 10x faster? Or maybe the complete overhaul of the XMB? Eric said in an interview that he will bring some of the features many gamers are requesting for. (Cross game chat)

@15.

They didnt bury the story, this is a blog, numbnuts, its dedicated to PS3 news. Let me get this straight, you want them completely ignore all of the ps3 news and keep the filmware 3.0 up so you can complain and cry more while saying Sony sucks and nobody there listens. I might get banned for this, I dont care, but f**k you. You are such an inconsiderate idiot its incredible how ignorant people can be. Nice job on 3.00 Eric, it looks really nice.

+ wbrinkman on September 1st, 2009 at 4:15 pm said:

Yeah, how about developing an actual app for the xmb that is *optional* (and can be removed for those not interested) instead of putting a hyperlink to facebook or… say, BBC’s iplayer using the buggy ps3 browser?


14

+ EvoAnubis on September 1st, 2009 at 4:16 pm said:

Oh, and about Facebook, the only thing I want to see (other than what’s already happening) is some PSN integration. Why is there no PSN app on Facebook like there is for my GamerTag? I’m actually more proud of my PS3 stuff than I am my 360 stuff, but have no way of showing that.

Here’s the cheat sheet for anyone who isn’t sure what the correct answer is:

I thought this was a post stating that Facebook is coming to PS3 via an app.

I put in the other section, “I would also like a easier way to go to Facebook in the PS3’s browser.”

No ish, Sherlock. He was talking about actual integration embedded in the XMB and PSN, which would be damned cool.

On the Facebook topic… Facebook and Twitter on my PS3 would be nice ;).

I also would like a quicker way to go to facebook on my ps3. But I would also like a ps3 forums app where there is a nice and quick interface to use to talk to people. ;)

Wow. Already deleting comments at record speeds.

So I will say again: “This feature is not available in your country/region”

All that needs to be said.

+ mastrofallz on September 1st, 2009 at 4:21 pm said:

@20.

That’d be cool, I guess. But doesnt Microsoft already have that?

Now what I would like to see, is an App store. Free or not free, that would haul some serious cash for Sony. Maybe integrate Itunes and Face book for $0.99. Or Twitter and Youtube for $0.50. Now that would be beast, and I would buy all the apps I can handle day 1.

+ ILOVEPLASTATION3 on September 1st, 2009 at 4:24 pm said:

@24 – I totally agree!!! I would rather have free apps…but they were have to be unique apps if Sony wants to put a cost on them. I mean why make an app that costs money to link to a site when you can just use the browser. ;)

Facebook PS3 intergration would be pretty awesome!

+ smokey_vols on September 1st, 2009 at 4:26 pm said:

Some Facebook integration on the PS3 console would be cool. Either Facebook, MySpace, or even if Sony wanted to start their own social networking site just for PS fans, that could be cool.

P.S. A good read for you guys.

i dont use any of these things simply because i, not the type of personto just follow the crowd.
i can make my own site if i wanted to but im to busy with school that being said.

i wouldnt mind a way of integrating some of these comnicatiom methods into the ps3 itself as an app of somekind.

options are never to much to have

oh boy LBP froze on start-up. Nice job 3.0

Sorry to double post but I have a question.

Why does X load up my friend’s profile which I could care less about, while I have to hit triangle, scroll through to “messages” then search for an unread message. Why can’t X open the latest unread message? Common sense. If you need a new design manager I’m available for hire.

I refuse to join because

1) Sony is screwing customers who want games on disc.

2) Obnoxious firmware updates with sparkles and a menu bar that can’t be disabled.

3) Focus on crap like Home instead of bringing out quality exclusive titles.

Sony is washed up this gen.

I want no further part of them.
