Unofficial 'I want ...' thread

In my opinion there are quite a few things sony need to add to ps3 firmware, I'll list the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

The ability to make "phone calls" to buddies no matter what they are doing at the time, if they are in game make it so a notification shows on screen and a tap of the ps button answers the call so as not to interrupt gameplay.

A news icon in the network part of the xmb so that issues like the one I'm currently having with rub a dub (bought the full game and installed but am only getting the demo :S ) can be pointed out so that we know sony is doing something about it.

Here's a biggie - an option to reassign control pad buttons to a MOUSE and KEYBOARD to play games with (1st person games that is) yeah it's not important to most of us but I have at least 6 friends who would buy a ps3 tomorrow if they could play resistance with a mouse and keyboard but because they can't they are not going to bother until the price drops to around half what it is.

Yeah but if and when they do implement the rumble again everyone will have to buy whole new controllers if you want the rumble feedback just because you get one new thing built into them.

I know it's not to everyones taste having to buy a new controller but personally I would buy a new one if the rumble feature returned.

e.g. Playing something like F1 and going over the rumble strip is without the controller rumbling is a bit strange now having had it there for so long.

Yeah I have Formula One Championship Edition as well and I miss the rumble sometimes like you said when you go on the red & white strips on the side of the road.

1. I would like a more effective way of streaming content from a PC to my PS3.
2. As said before, access to the XMB whilst preforming other tasks.
3. Voice chat within games to be fully supported and functional (Motorstorm anyone ;))
4. The ability to rip music off of my Sony walkman MP3 player, would be sweet :D
5. The EU and US stores to have the same content at the same time :mad:

Rant over :D

Back on topic;

 

Why can the PS3 keep albums in the correct listing order but PSP cannot?  Unless you use a playlist simply copying an album to PSP will cause it to list it in alphabetical order!!!

 

I'd like to change user during a game, rather than quit the game then change user; so much easier when two people want to play the same game but use their own save files.

 

More music visualisations

 

Update the browser, change it for a customised version of firefox or something, just update it more often

 

a clock and date on the XMB would be a nice touch, make it optional though 

 

I would like a better "master" admin user so that I can set files/games/demo's to only show on certain user log in's.  I know I can set parental controls but it would be nice to actually hide some content (no, not that kind!)

 

Oh, yeah and HOW ABOUT SOME ACTUAL GAMES FOR THE EYE CAM along the lines of the silly fun stuff that the eye toy had!  I bought this for my kids and there is virtually NOTHING worth buying yet.  Just some simple balloon knocking around, the kung fu game, keepie uppie, etc

 

Cheers!

I know this would be a pain to implement, but is there any way to have the PS3 simultaneously output HDMI and Component Video?

That way, I can switch between my big and my small TV without having to fire the other up to change the settings. 

 (the projector is awesome for Burnout/GT5, but simply too noisy to play some music)

 

Also, it would be nice if music kept playing when you open the Playstation Store.

Speaking of music, an 'Enqueue' option would be awesome.

(preferably on single songs and on folders)

VERY happy with my PS3, the only thing I'd like (sorry if it's been suggested, but i'm not going through 77 pages to see :P)

 

When you press the PS button, maybe the clock could be shown, no clock in my living room and would like to know just how late it really is :)

Seeing as though the 2.41 patch is out now, that was meant to add a load of things that everyone wants, I'm gunna put what I would like on the next patch.

First of all, I would really appreciate it if we could play music while we are playing a game, I assume there would be no problems with doing this, as I believe the PS3 is more powerful than the 3FixMe witch can do this.

I would also like the internet browser to have more memory or whatever it needs so that the notices saying that there isn't enough memory to load the page doesn't come up.

I think an auto-shut down is also a good idea, I have numerous times had to leave my PS3 on while I have gone out because I have been downloading a large file.

I think the trophies idea is very nice, but would be better if there were more games added to the list of available trophies, such as older games that alot of people have already got.

Don't know if this has been asked before, but particularly with the new trophy support in games it would be reasonable to ask for multiple users to be logged on 1 playstation at the same time much like the XBL. Seems ridiculous that I should log in, play Buzz, get my trophies, then quit game, and let our lass log in to get hers when we've both been playing together.

It would be useful if the Trophy status contained a bit more information.
A couple of buddies asked me how many trophies I had for Uncharted & I had to go through and manually count them...LOL!!!
This will be an issue if a buddy has 9 games in his Trophy list & you want to find out how he got his single Gold trophy.

You would have to access each game list!!!

 

Take a look at the pic below (NOT from my PS3).

 It would be useful if a break down of trophies was diplayed next to the percentage value.  For example (with Eden),

 

28% (B: 12 / S: 03 / G: 01 / P: 00)

I want....

 

More USB slots, but i have just found something to help me with this...

 

Ability to change Font colour ( So when using a white custom wallpaper you can read )

 

A bigger internal HDD - again just found something to help me with this...

 

But most of all i want Custom Soundtracks in ALL games!!!!!!!!

 

Its something i got so used to with Xbox and i NEED it on PS3. Sick of playing GT5 to their rubbish tunes, same with Motorstorm...You give me an Ipod in MGS4 and then i can only listen to orchestral game themes?? ***** is the point of that? I wanna hear some TOOL cranking whilst i waste PMC's, or fly around some tracks bumping some Wu Tang.... Not listening to The Klaxxons 'golden sands' on repeat for 10 minutes.

 

Anyway rant over - sort out the Custom tunes whilst gaming and your console would definately be the best of teh current gen.

One (new) need for BD playback on some TV sets not compatible with 1080/24Hz. I own a Sony rear projection unit KDS55A2000, FullHD, but that does not support 1080p24. But it can display 1080p48 and 1080p72, so 48Hz and 72Hz.

 

In order to display a BD movie at 48Hz, it is quite simple, during the same duration of 1 picture each 1/24s, display two times the same picture each 1/48s. Same thing with 3 pictures for 72Hz. This process is called respectively 2:2 pulldown and 3:3 pulldown.

 

What is implemented on PS3 is 3:2 pulldown. 3 times the same image, then 2, etc ... This produces some  artefacts during movies, because generates a 60Hz frame rate.

 

What would be great is to modify the BD playback properties, not only to force 24Hz, what is now possible for a long time (2.41 firware, if I remember well), but also to add in this list force 48Hz and force 72Hz.

 

I think it will be needful for the one (like me !) that owns a Sony product, or any other brand, that does not support 24Hz.

 

Thank you to take into account my request.

Option to reduce DVD subtitle size.

 

With larger HDTV viewing upscaled DVDs is nice. However, subtitle text size is usually quite large 

on most DVDs and fonts are also pretty blocky. End result is not nice and an option to render 

subtitles with reduced size would be wellcome. Naturally some cases where subtitle mechanism

is used to render text and graphics in specific locations on screen would not work well but for

most subtitles this would not be a problem.
