This is stupid! I PROMISED myself I would NOT make a post complaining about complainers. Now look at me, i'm ashamed to call myself a hypocrite right now but I am.

 

Answer me this 1 question: How are avatars and themes so important? Did PS1 have them? Did PS2? (Somewhat online but no one gave 2 s$%ts) You people are taking this for granted by saying "Oh sony fails right now" "LET'S MAKE A LIST OF UNSUPPORTING PLAYERS" "Put this in your sig if you hate 3.00" 

 

If you hate 3.00 that much, sell you PS3. You're killing the PSN and nobody wants you here. Just go play the other 2 consoles if you hate PS3 so much. I'll tell you what whenever I get sick of playing my PS3, I go play the box. It's not that bad.

 

Just SHUT UP and GROW UP please!

Avatars and themes, themes most of all, give people a feeling of personalization thus making the console something important. Like the other box's avatars where people can customize and make their own people can say hey that's mine. Giving people at least the illusion of this kind of power over THEIR consoles and profiles can greatly improve the feelings some people will have towards Sony or others. I believe customization should be the way console maker should go giving people that hey I can fell and look independent, while still looking like everyone else, and special,not slow kind of special.

 there is a difference with what you would call a troll cause the xbox people dont know much about the XMB. also i dont think they have enough time to be on a ton of sites from psu.com to youtube to smaller forums all over the net. if no one complains then nothing will be ever fixed about anything and not just some stupid features on the ps3.
 i wonder how many windows xp users would have been happy if they forced to goto vista? do you think everyone would just love microsoft for that? lots of people didnt switch and they were giving options... 

 


 

I detect a 360 fanboy from your 28 posts and your sig. And your name. '59'... One away from 60. Buuut it all could be 'just a coincidence'(sp) lol..... jk

Todays gaming landscape is different than it was in the glory days of the PS2.  Avatars are very important to today's gamers, and thats why there is all this complaining.

Also its the little stuff what matters.

 

Look at it this way:

 

How good is the football team if there's no center. What's so good about the QB if there's no receivers.

 

In this case the ps3 is the team and the avatars and themes are the player positions.

Those complainers aren't really as annoying as the 3.00 complainers.  They want something that others aren't going to pay for while the 3.00 complainers are complaining because they feel they can't stare at their XMB's anymore.  THOSE are the ones you should point your anger at, NOT the ones who are willing to pay for an avatar.

Agreed. If you complain at something thats free then thats dumb. But if you complain at something that you are willing to pay for, then I understand.

Hell, most people will pay if we'd be able to get what we want and Sony knows this too. Sony and their engineers are just to damn lazy to do the bloody coding.

Shh...your angrying them....you don't know what they can do. But in actuallity I agree with you 200% about everything. You bought the the PS3 for what? Gaming, Videos, Pictures, and Music and it delivers on that, you didn't buy the PS3 for the XMB or the avatars. It's like going to a bakery and getting a cake but you are upset because the box carrying the cake is red and not blue like the bakery down the street's boxes are.

lol its okay im just upset about my games not working and the ticker (with the ads and all that) everything else i can live with. i did have this name on xbox when i owned one and it was name since aim back in the 90's. thedude was taken and so was a bunch of other ones so i picked 0 5 and 9 because of there order in the number system first middle and last lol
my problem is that people love gang up on the people that have a problem if sony just gave both options no one would care... 
 and for the record microsoft cant make hardware at all so really both companies are still the best at what they were founded hardware and the ms for software and also uncharted and now uncharted 2 is my favorite modern series so no love for xbox other then their online service which i havent scene since 2008 lol so maybe its a lot different  

 

other people like things different then I??? IMPOSSIBLE
