Exclamation How to improve the PS3. Haters stay out!

This thread is to discuss things that you would like to see implemented into the PS3. I'm mainly thinking software but I guess it could be anything.

Here is what I'd like to see:
1. Quicktime plug-in. Why? So I can download HD movie trailers.
2. Flash plug-in. Why? While web surfing there are to many sites that require Flash.
3. Divx plug-in. Why? So I can watch my download divx movies.

What have you guys thought of?

So partition the hard drive and install linux? Why couldn't they make plug-ins for their OS?

The changes they'd have to make before I'd buy one....

1. Games.... more than the 10 or so available now... and not ones that I can just get for the 360 instead
2. Drop the price.

And things they should just change because....

3. ZOMG!! 1080p FULL HD!!!! (but not right out of the box, make sure you buy more cables). Throw in a cheapo OEM HDMI cable, or component hookups like the 360 has.
4. You guys had a full year to learn from Microsoft's mistake. BACKGROUND DOWNLOADING, GUYS! Microsoft took user's advice and fixed that months and months ago. SURELY somebody there was paying attention, right?

-Produce more, so "normal folk" can drive down to their local electronics store and buy one without having to wait in line and/or getting gouged on Ebay. That's the big sticking point for me, because I'm not jumping through any hoops to spend $700.
-Take $200-300 off the MSRP of the top-of-the-line model.

I admit, I was a sony/ps fanboy ever since I got the PSX.

the PS2 was a year early and killed everything else in its generation in terms of sales and games, if not pure power/pic quality.

however, with the PS3, sony ****ed up.
it was late, it was expensive, it has no compelling launch titles, so now I have a 360.

I was an almost certain ps3 buyer, but they just ****ed up that badly.

No way, their launch was PURE success. Why else would they promote Kuturagi to CEO?

How about this?

Instead of a partition on the hard drive, Can I install Linux on a USB flash drive and have the PS3 boot from there?

I think they call it the PSone these days. The PSX was a PS2 with a big HDD and Tivo functionality

I guess you can do that, but that's gonna be an expensive flash drive. It needs as least 2 gigs (redhat), then you are only gonna have somewhere around 1million reads/writes before it craps out.

They should remove the amount of suck they programmed into it.

oops, was this a "no haters thread"?

Really, to improve it they just need better games and a dedicated online system that all games must integrate into, like xbox live. Leaving the online match making to the 3rd parties was a bad idea. It won't be much better than PS2s shotty online experience.

My List:
1) Sell it for $400 or less "with everything"
2) Included in the above should be HD cables
3) Release GT5 at launch and make it online


Sony's only worthwhile game for me is GT. The other games I like can be had elsewhere (sometimes 6 months later, but whatever) so they need to make their system better and cheaper than the other guys to make me interested. I don't have a HD V yet, and when I get one I'll upgrade to either a PS3 or a 360. If I were to do it today I'd go with the 360, but in a year or so when we're ready maybe this will change. But yeah, $600 for what they have now??? No thanks.

I love how the 360 trolls just CAN'T resist putting down the PS3 even if the thread says "HATERS STAY OUT"!



I think they spend more time hating the PS3 than loving their 360.

I've also been a supporter of ps1 & ps2, but the ps3 doesnt interest me one bit. The price is rediculous...like 3DO rediculous back in 94. The games are nothing innovative and look worse than 360 counterparts.

At least the Wii has a distinct selling point to make up for its short comings,(games look like crap), the wii remotes.

Man...the PS3 has been out for less than 50 days! And people are expecting it to have more games than the 360 already! When the PS2 came out, its best game was SSX or Dynasty Warriors 2.

I don't think even the Xbox, one year after the PS2 came out, got this much hate from PS2 fans!

The lady & I will be getting a Wii eventually. Possibly a PS3 in a couple years if the price drops a lot.
