    Ways to Improve PS3 in General

    No, this isn't an official thread or something.

    This thread is for anyone to suggest anything to improve the PS3 to a newcomer. (Won't get implemented obviously)

    Mine:

    - Have a PSStore on the PC to buy games on PC and download them on the PS3 the next time you turn it on, or just to browse the games, videos etc.
    - Make every new PS3 come with a one month subscription for PS+.
    - Make the XMB run smoother especially while in-game. (See 360 dashboard.)

    Discuss.

    Allow ventilation under your PS3 so it will not over heat to quickly.

    Changeable Face-plates (Different Colors/Colours) like they were supposed to be originally (at least the Fatboys were designed like that)

    We wont ever have a working XMB like the 360 & if we do, it will be the start of another apple vs Samgsung war. Just now with Sony & Microsoft

    I agree with you on that first one, I was thinking about this a couple days ago, would be a great idea.

    A different XMB would be pretty cool, but ad-free unlike the Xbox, lol.

    So they have to pay to play online but their XMB pumps out ads sucks to play Xbox. I think that's wrong on so many levels

    There isn't any need for a Sony re-design for this sort of thing. Just get a baker's rack from your kitchen (or from your mother's kitchen) and put the PS3 on that, and your "problem" is solved. That's what I did more than two years ago, and my PS3 hasn't overheated since.

    I don't live with my mother Just following the OP when it said " suggest anything to improve the PS3 to a newcomer". Most people that are new kinda don't know about allowing ventilation under their PS3.

    Main complaint is the XMB. The layout is fine in general, but it does not work smoothly at all. Another thing along those lines have quicker trophy sync-up. And also would be nice to have 0% games delete-able from your trophies list.

    Make it really small and light weight , add its own screen and maybe you could make it run on batteries and possibly add a touch screen .................No wait they already did that

    I would just like trophies images as avatars

    I know this has been said before in another thread but when comparing trophies with a friend be able to look at only one instead of having to load the whole list. or failing that at least do it by the first letter to cut down on the time it'd take.

    package it with 2 controllers.

    now if this was strictly to draw new customers i think itd be cool if you bought a ps3 and got your choice of any game you wanted for free.

    Also let you do anything while in-game. change settings, look up dlc/install new things. That type of stuff would be cool, though that probably has more to do with the actual specs of the ps3 but still it'd be awesome.

    Always have everything you d/l set to d/l in the background instead of having to push that button to do it every time.

    In the store when you buy something have it automatically d/l it instead of having it go to that list of what you just bought and having to click to d/l it.

    The PS3 is already packaged with two controllers with some models, and also in the past with the original models.

    About doing anything in-game, the PS3 would crash to the XMB/turn off as the PS3 doesn't have enough RAM to do that - the PS3 was designed originally to play games and watch videos/movies well, not to multi-task. Part of the reason it doesn't continue downloading when you load up a game or a movie etc.

    EDIT: About choosing any game, that would make Sony and developers lose a ton of money as people would just get the most expensive and rare/exclusive games.

    Think I have spoke about this before but...:
    i) Have a trophy room for your trophies, so all of them are in a 3D cabinet with a proper display case. This could be customised to make it have different effects (wood/chrome etc). Kinda like a 'Home' type thing.
    ii) Little icon to appear at all times in the top right corner to alert you to a message/friend request etc. This would only appear until you have read the message. So many times messages for boosting have been missed because I haven't been in the room..
    iii) Be able to sort out friends. Make Online friends more prominent (larger,bolder or whatever) than offline ones, and be able to sort them into groups (ie boosting games, or people I know in real life etc)
    iv) PS button to take you to message recieved
    v) Be able to edit the XMB so that I can delete apps (SINGSTAR! Netflix etc), or rearrange them.
    vi) Make XMB a bit quicker/smoother
    vii) Be able to charge my controller without having the ps on. I know you can get docks etc, but not everyone owns them.
    Oh, AND TO MOVE MY DAMN TROPHIES BACK TO THE GAMES SECTION!!!
    PSN ID: nookie_egg [GMT]
    Feel free to add me if you want, just send me a message that you're from here and what you are interested in boosting if necessary BUT PLEASE, NO BLANK FRIEND REQUESTS.
    Boosting online trophies of:
    NFS THE RUN [co-op], BIOSHOCK 2 [level 40]
    Thanks to EVERYONE who helps boosting sessions!
