Send PlayStation a Letter

Letters

So here’s something a little bit different: We want you to mail us.

Seriously, we do. We want you to tell us how games have affected your life. If they’ve shocked you, or scared you, or changed you, we want to hear why. We want to hear how your experiences with games have defined you.

Use whatever physical medium makes the most sense for you. Be creative! Write a letter on notebook paper, print off an email, send a drawing, scribble on a photo, create a collage. Use pens, pencil, markers, crayons. Anything goes! Just be sure to tell a great story.

Be sure to include your contact info (email, phone number) and PSN ID, too, so we know how to reach you, and note that anything you mail to us won’t be returned.

Send your letters to:

Greatness Awaits

Now in days a letter is more meaningful and personal when is hand written. I will do this and will tell a story like no other.

I want to write about how you keep sitting on your hands

-Hackers added custom soundtracks/screenshots support to every PSP game, as well as them and remoteplay to every PS3 game. Yet you don’t let use them. You even let devs disable them on Vita. WE are playing the games, not devs. Hackers shouldn’t get a better game than paying customers. This is why PSP go failed. You had to hack it to use the games you paid for on it. OUR experience should be more important than devs opinions of our experience. Hackers even use the PS2 and PSP emulators you made for PS3, on any game. Why don’t you let the people who paid for the games use them? You encourage hacking!

-PSP go let you use PS3 controllers, but you never let devs use the right analog stick. Which would have let them make games FORWARDS compatible with Vita. Worse, you don’t let Vita use PS3 controllers… You removed features! Like TV out.

+ Techni on May 7th, 2014 at 2:33 pm said:

-Except for VitaTV. But you block it from playing most games (going back to my first point)! It should be up to us if we can play the games we paid for, not you. We paid for it, we paid for the games, why can’t we use both together?

-PS4’s (and Vita’s) menu is so bad, I’d pay to use the XMB on it. I love the XMB. It’s so intuitive, customizable.

You guys taught me, that when I make games I will always let the user decide. To include as many options as possible.

News Flash: Sony has teamed up with USPS in hopes to restructure Sony’s mail room.

Next week, Sony will team up with the local phone companies in hopes that people will go after a land line again.

I’ll have to write about my life changing experience. I traveled to another continent/country to meet an excelent guy, gamer and XBOX rival in 2011. A guy that I met on a gaming website in 2008. Can’t wait to go back with my wife. Such a surreal experience.

You have been hearing about letters and a number for six months, Sony.

MP3 and DLNA on PS4. Instead of giving feedback from your PR department just get it done, or make an official announcement about it.

Why send you a letter if you don’t listen, except for glowing fanboy feedback?

I remember being a little kid in a household that barely had anything. A little kid that was in a new place with no friends at a new school. I got my PS1 in 1996, after my Mom saved for a long while to get it for me along with Crash Bandicoot. Talking about Crash Bandicoot with kids at my elementary school helped me make friends that I’m still close with today.

I loved that Playstation.

LOL This is funny.

First – NOBODY who has any power what-so-ever will be reading these letters and NOBODY will actually care other than posting some of the letters that kiss Sony’s rear or have some heartfelt story behind them. No change will come from letters.

Second – Sony, you are pushing all this downloadable content yet you want people to write a letter rather than emailing? Hmmm

Third – If Sony would read anything online or in their mailbox they would see what areas needed fixed, redesigned or outright eliminated/added. They have not done ANY of that.

It really sounds great for Sony to ask people to mail them letters asking for their tear jerker stories on how playing a game has saved an entire village from starving…..oh wait. Well maybe they ate the person who could afford to buy the game and system.

Sony, FIX the problems, add the features and people will start believing again (other than the fanbois who think the PS4 has good games out right now LOL). I’ve had every system but not the PS4 yet.

Maybe I will write a letter and include a bill for the postage inside :)

Games have affected all of our lives it makes you happy at times and sometimes sad. I remember in certain games some endings would make you want to cry. Its a great experience and I love the accomplishment feeling when completing a game. Hopefully in the future Sony will contain to deliver top notch exclusives to the PS4.

Here’s a few things to can do to improve the Share Factory.

-Allow content for an hour long.
Although I’d never make an hour long video, it would allow us to edit more video and allow us to trim them easier.

-Allow unlimited commentary / music clips.
Of course, we’ll be able to edit them. If we could trim out and delete some portion of commentaries and then combine some, all the better.

-Killzone Shadow Fall Theme, Driveclub Theme, Uncharted Theme, The Last of Us Theme, The Order 1886.
Third Party Games are welcome as well.

-No restriction on Themes (allow us to use just any FXs and clips; instead of a pre-select when you start the project).

-The ability to import our own images and post them as FX.

-Have a Time Limit with FXs when needed; rather than just having another clip.

Thanks, it’s great!

Hey although I would love to send a letter, I am a little short on resources and funds for things as such.
I just want to write about how much the PS2 Online Era had changed my life.
The moment I got a PS2 as my Christmas present in December of 2003.
My brother had given it to me as a gift along with a copy of Socom II:US NAVY SEALs, this is the game that changed my life forever.
From that moment on it was hands down my favorite game and still to this day my favorite game of all time.
The online interaction with that game has made me so many friends that I still talk to now after 11 years of the game being out.
We still play it today on a third party LAN service.
It has made me a more competitive and accomplished person after all the years of playing it, if you are good at S2 then you are good at any game basically.

It is what started GB on its feet and most people do not know that it also had more players online daily than all of xbox live combined at the time.
I hope this message is received loud and clear by SONY because this game was the number one voted up blogshare for an HD version put on PSN for ONLINE MULTIPLAYER.
I am praying with the capability of PSNow and GaiKai they can once again bring this masterpiece to Playstation 4 for everyone to enjoy the online phenomenon that is SOCOM II: US NAVY SEALs.
Please do not pass this up, we have been waiting for this forever. Even Shuhei Yoshida said it himself that SOCOM 1 and SOCOM 2 were the gold of what made the SOCOM series, the recently outed ones weren’t as successful and took a turn for the worst in the series. So please listen to the fan base and bring back that SOCRACK experience to the PSN network, Myself and many many other fans are begging for this to happen.

+ o3Celerity on May 10th, 2014 at 8:39 pm said:

Multiple people have tested the game through an Emulator on the PC and were able to even upscale the graphics to make it look like an HD version already. If it is that easy to emulate and still be able to play on a third party LAN service then it should be easy enough to port to the PSNow service. SONY had even said themselves they are able to emulate new DLC for old Games. I have never played any game for as long as I have played SOCOM 2. Please with the help of PSNow and GaiKai bring this game to the PS4. We have waited so so long.
I have put in more money to the production of HHOUR: World’s Elite than I had payed for my PS4, but I would pay 3000 dollars for a SOCOM 2 HD brought to PS4

hello i wanted to share my ideas with the company or with people who made infamous second son
i was thinking about a new idea for this game that the next heroes will be two twins and of course the game wont be single player but it will be for two players no single players i mean just two players no single player and new moves and techniques will be added as the two twins will perform new moved together and will help each other to cross broken bridges like infamous second son and the two twins could combine with each other to create a new super powerfull person and this will last for 60 seconds as it is like a skill and it will last longer as the two players could upgrade this skill or any other skills and this super powerfull person
one of the two player could play with this person as the control f this player could switch to player 1 or player 2 i mean player 1 could play with him or player 2 thats all and you could guys find a story for these two twins i hope you like my idea about the next version of infamous and
thanks

note read the whole message please dont be lazy

I can’t write in being from Australia, but I definitely have something I want to say.

1. Please, focus more on aiding Japanese developers. The whole reason I loved my original PlayStation PlayStation 2, PSP and Vita were for the great Japanese games, they had a little something that no Western developer could/can deliver. That’s not to say I don’t love my PS3 (yet to get a PS4). While I couldn’t live without my PS1 and PS2 – the PS3 was just a good system, but not much to set it apart from the competition. It’s essentially a “Western” machine developed by a Japanese company.

2. This is more or less an extension for my first statement, but something I’d like to exaggerate. My favourite series of all time, not just in PlayStation history, but since the beginning of time is the Suikoden series by Konami. Unfortunately, like most other die hard fans from that series’ cult following. I never had a chance to play it back in the day, because of poor marketing on Sony and Konami’s part. I know it’s a strange request to send to the good folks over at PlayStation, but we will never see a Suikoden 6 or Suikoden 1-5 collection unless Sony were willing to sponsor it.
