I have to say this is only the second post I have made on the subject but I have voted with my wallet.

Since the update to force an advertisement, which is how I currently view the icon, onto our XMB, dashboard, whatever you may call it, I have not bought a game for this format.
Possibly have auto-renewed my PSplus sub, but honestly would have done it manually if I had to.

For those threatening to migrate to Xbox, I have to ask; Have you had the experience of owning one?
I love the simplicity of the playstation dashboard, previously uncluttered as it was. Navigating a Xbox is a hideous affair - to the point of I migrated to my PS3, only keep my xbox for Mass Effect (and look how that turned out.... I despise EA).

 

But that's just me. I have the options to be able to vote with my wallet without impacting my gaming entertainment. As a side note a double whammy of Steam sales at the ***** end of last year left my wallet a fair chunk lighter - mainly for games I already owned on consoles.

 

I'm sorry Sony, but it looks as though I am now migrating away from your hardware for my game purchases. Odd what ripples a small pebble can make...

 

Imagine how things would have worked out if only given a small option. Nobody would have thought about it twice. A quick press of triangle and then selection of delete - for those who want/ed it removed - and everyone could have gone about there gaming happy.

 

You will let us know when you correct this anomoly, won't you?

It's vaguely annoying, nothing I get all upset about though. I spend about 4 seconds on the XMB before I boot up a game.

Set my PS3 to launch on What's New. Within about half an hour I'd completely forgotten about this.

 

If google results say everything then take a look at this. Compared to PlayStation, and actual games that people actually play, with regards to this issue, nobody cares:

Man up and use your PS3 for what it's actually made for. The only people entitled to moan about this are the ones who work in Game stores where the manager refuses to load up a game and sits on the XMB all day.

So after 3 months it's still there and still no response from Sony on the feedback we were assured was passed on? Truly shoddy customer service. Good luck with the ps4, you'll need it!

Signed. Please please get this stupid icon and wallpaper off of my ps3. I did not ask for it, I did not add it, I do not want it.

How about I come and paint your excutive office wall with this singstar wallpaper and stick the icon on the window, I'm sure you would soon get them moved.

As far as I'm concerned SCEE, your continued silence on the issue, has spoken volumes as to how much you really give a damn about your consumers.

Why you cannot give everyone the option of customizing their xmb? Oh yea that's right, advertisers.
Sod the customers just keep the advertisers happy..Nice one.

The amount of posts here and on other forums across the net, show just how unpopular this whole decision was, I think you actually damaged the brand more than promoting it tbh

Out of all the unpopular decisions you have made with the ps3 ( such as only 2 machines activated at a time, an awful new store, that clearly has not been thought through) this one is the biggest kick in the teeth yet.

Don't think that remaining silent, people are going to forget We don't forget.
As of now its PC all the way for me, I be buggered if im going to have a games console that spam's me, because I have a sneaky feeling this is what is planned for the next gen.

 

Yeah yeah its a bit of a rant i know, but after nearly 4 months of silence i reckon its justified.

You can't really expect it to miraculously disappear overnight, my guess it will take a system firmware update to remove it. Best thing people can do is wait for the next system firmware update to see if it gets removed, if it's not removed then kick up a fuss. 

 

I am not a fan of Singstar myself it's not so much the XMB icon itself for me it's the location above my download content. I would of thought with the negative attitude this has brought it will be removed or moved at some point, don't expect a software update just for the Singstar icon removal.

Interesting I thought 4.31 was optional have been on 4.31 for a while myself. It may mean another update maybe due soon if 4.31 is now mandatory.

Wow, nothing. Still...

 

I would understand any update would need be in firmware so would need wait anyway, but if thats the case they could as least say something, If thats not the case and it's staying they could at least [edited myself] give some sort of response.

Suppose Im in utter disbelief this has gone on like this for monthswith so many responses and only the blog manager could bring himself to make a short response. It's truely aweful way treat customers from what I'm seeing here.

 

Oh well, with steam/amazon sales and bundles im saving a shedload, It's sony missing out on my cash going throught their eco system not me.

@pepper, its ridiculous that after we were repeatedly assured our feedback was being passed on & discussed that we have had no final message from anyone.

Their silence tells us what they think of their customers.
