    This may be a good thing if it discounts the cost of PSN games.

    :rofl: he went to the infamous8 school of journalism.

    I'm more interested in the new features of 3.0 if there are any.

    Firmware 3.0 would be cool but that makes no sense... "possible premium service where users pay one flat rate to access unlimited downloads"... what? :ugh: What downloads? PSN? Engrish?

    Yeah. I have no idea what they could charge for. I don't see them doing an unlimited package for PSN games though. There's too many variables with publishers etc.

    you do know you can edit the clip of the movie that shows on the XMB right?

    I have mine setup so that it shows an action clip of each movie, not just the fox logo or whatever at the beginning, and the name is just the movie name.

    I'm not sure what you're asking for here but mine looks pretty nice :dunno:

    As for the updates, as long as online gaming is still free, I don't care what they do.:cool:

    I dont have anything playing. Its just a still icon. I should probably add that all my films/shows are on an external drive. I dont really want to go through them all and select a clip :rofl:


    I have about 200gb worth of stuff

    :rofl: when i go to my movies section on the XMB, i have all my movies listed nicely by genre and alphabetically in each genre. then the image next to each one is a small clip of the movie from whatever portion I want. The default motion clip for it though is whatever the first 5 seconds are or whatever which is the opening logos for the film publisher, you dont actually have to pick a clip :mamoru:

    but it looks pretty slick though when its saved on the ps3 :cool:

    I have a 40 gig right now and have something like 5 gigs left because of all the movies i have stored on there. gonna have to delete a movie or two for madden and uncharted this year though :bowdown:

    im gonna upgrade to a 320 gig drive eventually. hopefully by christmas or my birthday next year. its so awesome to just be able to turn on my ps3 and just pick a movie and instantly play.

    I'm surprised with this long worthless article nothing was said about home.. the one thing that sony has bee touting forever, and is still in a lackluster beta stage

    Yeah. What the hell happened with Home?

    With Live you feel more like you're part of a community. With PSN it feels a lot more solitary. Home would have gone a great way to address that shit but I don't think Sony even knows what they're doing with it anymore.

    home is never going to progess past a lackluster beta. its really a perfect case of good intentions, bad implementation.

    all they need is a party system similar to lives and then it will be a completely better experience.

    They need to launch you into Home when you turn the console on. That will fix everything. :bowdown:

    i want a better gamer card and more detail below my friends screen name like what about a lil trophy icon and then your level number next to it?

    Θ Fareo
    [​IMG] Level 9 : 4%
    [​IMG] Gran Turismo 5
    Currently playing online

    so that you dont have to load the stupid tropy card... and a status on weather your playing the game online or not would be cool that way you can look and go "hmm what should i play? oh fareo is play GT5 and hes playing online right now sweet ill go join him.

    and a gamer card thats has more info like "upcoming games im looking forward too list" "my favorite game" or it would even be cool if the ps3 could track out long you play certin games and populate a list thats like "games fareo plays the most based on play time"

    :dunno:

    if they charge for PSN I'm going to buy another 360 and go back to Live. I know they don't care but I would rather pay for Live than PSN. I would just keep my PS3 for Blu ray and for exclusives.

    :werd: All good ideas that should be added, especially a more detailed gamer card-type thing
