PlayStation 3 Console Discussion

This whole disc swapping method for Uncharted is getting annoying now. I blitzed through hard mode with the game only freezing 3 times but now on crushing its freezing 1-2 times a chapter. I have to keep shutting my PS3 off and putting LBP in which has essentially become an Uncharted boot disc!

 

Well done Sony for knacking up one of your best exclusives.

They should make the messaging quicker. Like if you scroll onto someone's name instead having to press 3 buttons to get to the message you should be able to press square to go to the latest message.

 

At the moment you press triangle, press X to get to the message list which usually loads when in-game, and then you have to select the message you want. Making it slightly more inconvenient, you have to repeat this process if you have more than 1 message from someone, because pressing circle puts you back to the friends list. Need to streamline the whole shebang.

 

And get rid of the store stuff along with the big font & grey boxes. Make the comments visible when you aren't highlighting the ID, like with the games thing.

 

Triangle over person is the quickest way. That way you dont load profiles.

That's what I'm saying. When you're in game and you do it that way it loads the message list and takes a while. And don't say yours doesn't because you have a bigger HDD. It just needs to be quicker, one button press and BAM you're there.

 

Only dumb people choose the profile method.

Why don't you just play one of your other games till they patch it in a week or so?

 

I would ( dying to start Infamous ) but I want this done and dusted. Im on chapter 18 so hopefully there wont be much more disc swapping to do.

Old is better. The info at the top isnt bad though at all. Its useful. Wish we could remove the white line border though and keep the shaded part. The size should be optional if they want to keep this as default.

 

Feature wise i am not complaining. Its just that many of us want the UI to be of a very high standard, it is one of the PS3's Unique features.

I've always hated the PS3/PSP interface personally, its just so uninspired. But thats me.

I can't believe people are even bothered about the font size, yes it takes some getting used to but does it really make much difference.

There's multiple things I don't like about the system but I think the XMB is one of it's best features. I hope it doesn't make custom themes standard, otherwise it will get to complicated, whereas atm it's pretty slick.

I'm not bothered that much, I just think it looked better when it was set back a bit more.

I finally managed to track down a slim. I'm liking everything so far. I played a bit of Infamous and I'm finding it so far to be worth the ridiculous price we pay for games here. I've got it connected to a 1680x1050 monitor through HDMI/DVI and the monitor downscales from 1080p, but I get a bit of ghosting, its not really that bit a deal (I can always use 720p if it bothers me), but, if anyone knows how to fix this I wouldn't mind hearing.

I gave in and got a PS3 slim on tuesday even though I already have a 60GB. I had to get it just to see what it was like (pointless I know, I just like the look of it). I actually prefer my 60GB. I don't know whether to keep the slim, trade it in for a PSP go or just sell it

You better get a 100% return, c'mon! Wasting money on a console you already have just to see what a new version looks like?! Just send it over to my place and it will be put to good use.

Yeah back in my day I would have just returned the old model as faulty and pay the difference if any (which there isn't with the PS3/slim is there?) for the new one.

 

Come on, don't they teach you anything on the till training nowadays? ;)

It's funny, my brothers girlfriend wants a new PS3 slim, she told me it has blu-ray and free wifi built-in then asked me if it could play the Batman game I was playing on my 40GB :)

I bet the first game she'll buy is the PS1 Bishi Bashi..
