Sony thinks Online
I’m getting a sense of deja-vu all over again. This Joystiq article talks of a survey Sony sent out asking about online features people might like. Didn’t they send this out ages ago? It sounds awefully familiar. Actually, it sounds familiar in two ways. One is that I think we’ve seen this list before, and talked about how Sony is polling gamers. The second way is that this list has lots of things on it that Xbox Live does, and does extremely well.
But anyway, this is certainly proof positive that Sony is thinking about their online strategy. If they want to add buddy lists, chat, avatars, etc, that’s all fine with me. Add as much as you want. Just please, don’t charge for it! (Yeah, right!)
