I don't want a Social Networking Box! (PS 4)

[ Edited ]
79 replies 521 views Edited Feb 21, 2013

I don't want a Social Networking Box, I don't want a Social Networking Box, I don't want a Social Networking Box!!!!

Seriously, I don't want a 2ed face book page, I don't want a multimedia box I have a PC for that, I don't want my friends to play for me while I take a ++++, the PS Move is about as innovative as watching paint dry. and no one is going to cloud game.

 

I play my consoles so I can play games, not  go on facebook, if you want to add it in go for it just dont focus on it.  I dont give a flying **** about your social features or connections etc, I want to pop in some games and play them by myself, I dont want people "jumping in" or "helping" me. Speaking of popping in games, can we or is it all digital? Sounded like it was all digital or at least always online which always online DRM sucks harder than star wars kinetic or Pamela Anderson on a boat, and apparently the PS 4 has a mind of its own. Like **bleep** you playstation, download the games I want when I want, not when you think its right and when you chose, Im the gamer here, a gamer with an annoying data cap the the majority of Canada.

Man you act like that stuff is the main features of the PS4 and not just secondary features. The primary feature of the PS4 is to play games first and foremost. If I want to share what I've been up to with a video onto Facebook or YouTube I can. I don't have to use it but I have that option if it pleases me to do so.

I won't ever sync my facebook to PS3.  It is totally optional.

By the tone of their press conference yesterday it sounded like they were building the PS 4 around social networks, that’s the impression I got from the first 1/3rd of it anyway.

I hear you.  I'm the same way.  No interest in linking Facebook, sharing gameplay video, jumping in on someone else's game, yada yada yada.  I just want to play.  And would love to see developers make multi-player trophies optional ALL THE TIME, rather than a requirement for a platinum.   Had enough encounters with jerks and jerkettes trying to co-op that it doesn't interest me at all.

 

Still, the PS4 looks nicely beefed up and I'll likely pick one up when it comes out.

Are you really that Anti-Social? By the way it's "Networking". Tell your countries providers to get with times and lose the data cap, or don't be suckered into data capped services.

I dont think its a a matter of being anti-social, more like privacy.
I dont ever want my social media accounts linked to my gaming accounts. They are two seperate things and I plan on keeping it that way. This feature opens the door for hacking / harrassment / etc /etc.

I'll pass, thank you.

The features aren't required, so them ranting about it is not getting any point across, do you understand that? It's optional.
