Hey adrianc1982, I know Its an "Opinion" ... But that opinion is so wrong ...
1. You said Online needs Fixing... I totally desagree. Why ? Because Unlike The Xbox 360 The PSN offers Free Online Gaming... which its Great because i play COD4 All day All Night. I have no complaints... but if you rather Pay for online experience then (Sucks to be You)... And Swich To Crap 360.
2. Use your technology... I guess you're not in 2008. PS3 Has shown A great Improvement this year... And the capabilities of the Ps3 Its being revealed little by little... For example ... HOME ... its FREE OF CHARGE. And from beta test and comments I've heard and seen Home its going to be a really cool feature that other consoles are not capable of. There is one thing I agree which is making games compartible with keyboard and mouse, but then again ... they dont have it so just go get a gaming computer or something.
3. If you didnt realize this by now ... Life with playstaion is FREE OF CHARGE ... Sony is just being nice to us and adding this new feature to the PS ... So why dont you go on and start reading on the net How Sony is pretty much given us a lot of things for free .. then you think of other consoles and start adding all it needs for it to try and compete against the PS3.
My First POST EVER ... and I've got to suggest you something.. My suggestion is learn before you post ... all I've said its true you could read around ... not trying to start an argument, its just that this is now my opinion (and its all true).
This is an opinion: Another Useless application, everywhere we get that, even the underpowered wii has a news and weather channel, please stop selling us little shinning mirrors.
Two things need to be fixed/updated:
1.- Online play, fix it, update your games constantly make it easy for the developer to release updates whenever THEY want not you sony. Fix your online play give us features where they count online we dont want weather we want chat rooms, downloadable content(more), trophys need more work(really far behind achievements they really made a lot of good to many 360 games), more titles you have a huge collection for ps1 and ps2, I will be willing to pay for a lot of your games, that i cant find anywhere else now, only used and I hate buying used copys, try finding a silent hill 3 copy thats new and at good price or some others. Whats the matter sony? you really are losing money if you where to win even a dollar for each ps1 game its a lot of money you are losing and you know it.
2.- Use your technology, you have a great machine and yet it doesnt deliver what it could, please develop a good wireless headset, make librarys to make all games work with keyboard and mouse or controller so the developer doesnt need to work that much on that one. Imagine having mouse and keyboard for COD4, the orange box, HAZE and other FPS or civilization 3, imagine for a moment that, you could have that and a small 20 inch tv and use it like a computer but a computer that only works with games, wow. Work with your media center issues, network sharing and streaming its what we want not the shitty sharing method we have that requires us to buy software that doesnt work for every system(OS X its horrible the options we've got)
Theres a lot of stuff where Sony can improve a lot, games are coming slowly but steady, Im pretty much confortable with what we have its a great library for such a "short" time, but if we've got a full featured PC(with another architecture, but something comparable to a PC) lets use its features, make things easier for developers make compatibility, make updates to our games, make them GREAT so we are drolling over to buy more and more games. Really work on what you have right now, why do I want news or weather on my ps3 I have them everywhere its like adding a CLOCK to a backpack why would we want one if we all carry cel phones and ipods, stop doing the obvios work on you GREAT MACHINE.
I really love what we have but I know it could be better, way better in a lot of aspects.
