xgame chat, better online servers, improved xmb stability (freezes etc), better web browser

Tonight my PS3 felt like it was so damn hot.  I would love it to get with stands ESPECIALLY on any new slims/mini/s etcs.  That system gets so hot, once time I left it down w/o the spacers I have for it, it was like ON FIRE.  I swear they make these things so they plan to fail.  More money for the company

There are 60GB and 80GB model PS3\'s out there that can play PS2 games. But I agree they should have kept the PS2 BC compatibility in there.

I agree with that

I find it odd that the launch system PS3's were arguably better than the recent models.  They are larger, and had less storage space (which could be upgraded), but they were backwards compatible, had more USB slots, and a bevy of other little nifty things.  

 

Biggest feature I want is the same DVR/TV features that Europe has.  I'm jealous.

I still don't understand x-game chat but since that's dead I'd kind like to remove the excess links all over the XMB. I don't need the store in every section of the XMB. Font color changes would be nice.

dude... frogger that.. moore's law suggests that tech gets cheaper as time goes on. the fact that older systems were more expensive shouldn't indicate that they're better. The reduction in feature set is a HUGE issue I take with the PS3 and not just the software stuff like the Linux and what have you but stuff exactly LIKE the 4 USB ports reduced to 2. You know what I would give to have more than two USB ports.. that would be awesome. THAT's the kind of feature that would get me to upgrade my 80gb pS3 to a new model. I actually from time to time have wanted to show my digicam pics on my ps3. Something I thought I'd never want to do.

The fact that the only way to get those features back is to buy a $20? add on from a third party is a sad state of affairs.

Here, here. Very strange that the slim lost even more features. And don't exchange ps3's for a new hdd; buy a new hdd! Storage is dirt cheap.

I have the usual gripes: Give me back OtherOS & support for mkv, iso, and more codecs. Better integration with media servers.

I am delighted that we got dynamic themes eventually. What else would be cool? Screensavers?

Also as wolfkin writes above, I'd love the ability to tinker more with the XMB. Different fonts, etc., but also the ability to reconfigure menus. Better/different interfaces for organizing local games (apart from the current two options: folder system or really, really long list). But I recognize that the XMB needs to be ultra light on resources.

software wise I'm actually ok. i don't really need more media server support. I would like Mkv support but i'm ok with what i have right now.

but you remind me of osmething. Dynamic themes. If you're a company putting out a sponsored static theme.... **** you. How dare you insult me. I haven't tried it on yet but if that bloody Uncharted 3 theme is static I'm gonna sit down and write aletter to someone about how stupid they are. F that.

The ps3 needs to get with the times of apps and live tv. they are falling behind microsoft faster and faster. I am a die hard ps3 fan but the xmb hasn't changed since its inception and the inability to access live tv and other free media platforms is a waste of such a great technology. Ps3 needs to reclaim its standing as an innovator and front runner in gaming instead of waiting for someone else to nudge them into creating change. Its sad to say but I play my Xbox 360 more often than my ps3. And WTF is home? Lame attempt at a second life clone. Sad Sony Sad......cry Maybe they will get it right with PS4? If not, ps3 will be the last gen console I spend $500 dollars for from Sony. Xbox has a voice and motion activated dash releasing Dec.6th in time for the holidays and selling for $199 for a 4g kinect bundle. PS3 still over rated and over priced. PS3 needs a revamp of a dust cover in my house.

I don't know about over rated. The PS3 has never really been over rated. Since day one people have generally rated it pretty low and based on that $600 price tag to start with it probably deserved it's low rating. and now it's rating has come up but it has become a more worthwhile machine since then.. somehow.. in spite of Sony's removing features (oh yeah firmware updates are a great idea for gaming.. fantastic). Sure it's more highly rated than it was at the start but "over" rated? I think you're taking the esteem of the PS3 way too high. I still don't think most people rate the PS3 better than the Xbox. The XMB hasn't changed much maybe but aside from removing stuff like PS Store links and the "Video App" section that I don't use I don't have a problem with the XMB.

As far as your direct suggestions? What are "apps" and "live tv" supposed to mean? I'm not being sarcastic I really don't understand what sort of apps you would want on a PS3? Do people really want to to use Twitter and Facebook on their PS3? I don't have a smart phone and even I don't want that. and I'm confused by "live TV" if I want to watch "live TV" why wouldn't i just push the input button on my TV and .. actually watch "live TV"? that has to mean something other than what I think it means. What exactly are these "free media platforms" that we should be able to access? Hulu? Netflix? cause we got those. YouTube? there's a browser and if you want more than that for YouTube you're being an idiot. They put all kinda of random video services on the PSN that honestly I don't care about not sure what on earth they could be missing.

Sure @Home is lame but even Sony is only half advertising that anymore. Noone is saying the PS3 is great because of @Home.

The PS3's biggest and IMO only real failing is in the online dept and honestly (me personally) i'm ok with it. I'm still not sure I understand multigame voice chat or whatever it's called and while it sucks balls that the website isn't working and even when it was you couldn't do stuff like push downloads to my console but I don't mind doing them manually and saving myself $50 a year that's like 4-6 games for me. I buy cheap man.

again I'd be more impressed if people would explain these things to me.. what's wrong with the controller? Don't get me wrong, the gamecube had the greatest controller of all time but at least when people hate on it (and they do.. they always do). They tell you why. They're sarcastic and exaggerated and usually wrong but at least there's something there.

WOW. The most pressing feature I need as someone who has a lot of items on my PS3 (96 PSN, PSP - oh wait they removed that feature, 7 PS, 6 Minis, etc) one feature i HIGHLY want is to sort alphabetically. it's ludicrous to think my only options are by creation date or play date. I have a 500GB drive I keep everything on my PS3.. i need a way to find my PacMan game faster than trying to remember when I last played it.

It's SO. Bloody. Frustrating. I get that you don't want to allow me folders. I disagree with it.. but I get it. But no alphabetical sort? what kind of sense does that make?

You can actually make "folders" for your games. Press triangle when over a game and you can see it something called "album" (I think). That would be your "folder" name. To put more games into that folder use the same album.
