PS3 ONLINE

ONLINE IS IN THE DNA OF THE PS3

And Sony's PS3 killer online service will be alive from day 1.

Look here:

Eurogamer Online is one area where, without a doubt, Microsoft did get it rather more right than Sony last generation - Xbox Live being a much more comprehensive worldwide service than what Sony rolled out...

Phil Harrison: But more people play online games on a PlayStation 2 than on any other game console.

Eurogamer: Right, but then a lot more people own PlayStation 2s than any other game console.

Phil Harrison: Yeah, but it is something that is worth pointing out - although, personally I have a great deal of respect for what Microsoft has done with Live, and I think they've got a lot of it right.

Eurogamer: Can we expect to see Sony really working to catch up in that department on PS3?

Phil Harrison: I think that philosophically, PlayStation 2's online offering is an add-on to the hardware and software and operating system. In PlayStation 3, online is part of the DNA of the machine - in fact, the Cell processor itself is designed from the ground up to be connected to a broadband network.

So from switch on, day one of the machine, network functionality will pervade every aspect of the machine. We talked a little bit about that at the conference, but there's a lot more detail to go into about some of the really cool things - like, if your PS3 is switched on at home, it can be a media server to your PSP on the other side of the planet. Now that is incredibly cool. I could sit here in LA and navigate the data which is stored on my PS3, and download music and other data off my PS3, onto my PSP.

Eurogamer: Phil Harrison, thank you very much for your time.

Phil Harrison: Thank you.

Good question, but what if it is free and offers things like a friends list and in-game invites? Those two features alone would make it worth it.
