PS3 Online Tidbits

28 replies 3 views Edited Jun 27, 2005

Although online gaming is very much a buzzword around the industry right now, with MMOs on PC selling bucket loads and Xbox Live attracting increasing subscribers, Sony were quiet about their plans for the PS3's online capabilities. Reeves, too, is coy on the subject: "It was revealed at E3 and it was called Playstation Network. It will be introduced as PS3 is. It's not just online, it's a whole community and it embraces other non-game content as well."

Sounds like Sony could be trying to develop EyeToy/Video functionality to play a part with online play. Like you could actally see the person you are playing againist in a small box on your screen.

They probably will for the most part. They just won't admit it.,
As we say in Steamboat:

Do their own thing?  I'm saying they should have a centralized gamertag, buddy list, and text/voice/video messaging and matchmaking, DLC and patches, all stuff Xbox Live has had for awhile now (besides video messaging)

They're making it seem like you're playing checkers at a club or something.

Easier said than done.

From the little we do know about PS3 online it sounds like we're getting "Gamer-Tags" and "Chat". If the "Gamer Tag" works with a friends list like XBL does then thats all I need.

"I think that gaming is basically sociable. People want to see who they're playing with. And if you really think about it online gaming is to some extent anonymous - you're using a handle. When we get to the point when you can actually see who you're playing against, and it really comes alive and you can hear their voices as if you're in an auditorium, and it gets simpler, and there are games that are written specifically for online gaming, then we will start to see it, but we have not reached that. We're at kind of 0.5. We've got to get to 2 before online gaming really takes off."

"The psyche is I come back from the pub or wherever and you want to play with the guys. Some people say I want to go online, but more people actually want to see people's faces and feel the enjoyment and that type of thing."

Indeed, Reeves doesn't see the step up from 0.5 to 2 on the next generation hardware at all. "It will be the next one after I think."


Whats up with all the analogy's from the Sony guys? Why dont they just tell us some specifics (pricing, game handle, servers, etc.).
