Yea it would be Smiley Happy. Especially for people who are trying to get their friends to try different games on their systems. It would be a way to get more gamers to try different games.

Yes, it should. Hopefully the PS4 will have that.

Yeah, especially since most consumers don't want to try something new. It's kinda sad that things are like that, but they are.

While the thought is what counts just gift them a gift card so they can get what they want.

I think it would be a good idea to have this option. Especially if you want to give it as a gift because you know they wanted it. Or if you want someone to play a game with you that has online multiplayer or just want them to experience the game. They should also have the option as the recipient to have gifts download as soon as they are gifted whether the console is on or off, or ask to download.

If they have a gift option, a birthday notification would also be nice, so people would actually know when to buy a gift for a friend.

A gifting option as well as a wishlist is something I miss on PSN compared to Steam.

This sounds like a good idea to me too.  I think the Gift option would be cool for a PSN friend, though.  It's not too hard to buy someone a PSN card.  A friend did that for me for my birthday through Amazon, and Amazon gave me a link to the code that I put into PSN.  But I think it'd be really fun if, say, you and a buddy play some online game together, and you can buy him or her some downloadable content or a new map or something.  That might encourage you guys to play together more often!  Just a thought anyway...



Feel free to add me especially if you like RPG games.
Just say you're from PSN forums, ok?
