10 replies 464 views Edited Oct 10, 2012

ps3 ads on the xmb why doesn't Sony put ads on the ps3 menu like xbox 360 does I mean Microsoft does it and there a paid service making tons of money off this Sony should do the same with there service so they can make some big bucks too I know a lot of people or going to disagree with me but it might make psn a better online service.

Yup, PS Home has 10x the advertising Microsoft has anywhere on the Xbox.

Those on your face ad placement in the Xbox is what makes it so unappealing to me. All they do is tell me that the console itself should be FREE. The day they do that that's the day I would be happy with Xbox.

 

SONY has taken a smarter approach. With What's New & the scrolling txt under the clock they keep us informed of whats new on the PSN store, then once in the store more ads. Then there is the mega advertising paradise of PlayStation HOME,  where ads on your face fit perfectly, for hey, cities are clothed with ads on your face.

Yes Sony is taking a more suttle approach with it comes to advertising on the PS3, but I suspect that the PS4's interface will have more advertising in it, especially if PSN is to remain free...

**bleep**. Live is an awful service and 360 has no games compared to everything else out there including handhelds. The LAST thing I want to see is ads. M$ is greedy, that's half the reason they're such a failure. If PSN gets infected with them too it could likely be the last straw as I don't buy much due to the expensive prices. If I don't get a disc and manual then it's not worth more than $10. 

Too many games, too little time.

I've wondered why the digital distribution of games, games that are being published on disc as well, have the same price tag as the game disc price tag. We all have wondered, read and perhaps talked about the reasons why game discs are priced at $59.99 & perhaps these same reasons can extend to the digital distribution market as well. Now, if it is a SONY published game, should the digital copy distribution of the game have the same price tag as the game disc copy? Mmmhmm, would the middleman market expenses now become server fees & whatnot?

This is why going digital sucks. Who'd be stupid enough to spend full price on a game plus fill their HDD when the retail disc is or will be cheaper in a few weeks? I want physical discs and all PSN content needs to be capped at $10.

Too many games, too little time.
