    Same shit, different bucket. No problem here.

    Just one more anxiety-driven, hyperbole-based thread from our resident tinfoil-wearing doomsayer.

    This.
    Just as a side note: People are less likely to be complete assholes if everyone knows who they are, which is the rationale behind Blizzard's system.

    You're really not making the effort to misrepresent facts like you once did, and that's disappointing to see.

    I can't think of a single game that makes use of button sensitivity, not including the triggers or analogue sticks.

    Gran Turismo 5 is the only one I can think of.

    The only one I can think of off-hand is a few of the tables in The Pinball Arcade (and maybe some of Zen's???). But even then, it's only for the plunger sensitivity, and the works just as well. So yeah, it was a nifty feature and I remember using it more on the PS2 when there were button-mashing mini-games, and hitting the button harder worked better than trying to tap it lightly really fast. So, no big loss. Kinda like SixAxis. Almost no one uses it in their games, so I wouldn't miss it if Sony chose to save money and discontinue the feature.

    As for the whole "real name" issue... who links their FB account to their PS3 (soon PS4) and is then worried about their name getting around? Just delete your FB info from your account. Either you're an attention whore, or you're not... or you just don't care. Either way, this is just more "sky is falling" nonsense. Doesn't adversely affect anyone in the real world.

    False. It automatically lets friends see your real name (only if they are using their real names) until you turn in off.

    it's obvious that only people you choose will see your real name. it's not like you're going to be forced to broadcast that shit to the world against your will. all this thread is really is a sad attempt by ps360 grabbing at straws trying to bash sony and it's new system coming out. i've never seen someone so anti sony that they take every chance they get to twist information and abuse stories found on the internet.

    NO system has ever been perfect and i guarantee that the ps4 won't be perfect either. i'm sure it will have issues that some people dislike but the fact of the matter is that it's on track to being the best system ever released and is really setting sony up to rule the console market and Nintendo dick suckers like ps360 can't stand that.

    same here, but the feature needs to be enabled for people to view your actual name so not really a problem

    As I mentioned in a previous post, I agree with you on principle given the potential for abuse.

    However, here's the key... it's opt-in. We all have a choice whether to use it or not.

    For those who want it, this could be a handy feature. For those who don't, it won't affect them in the slightest.

    You forgot to include that every PS4 console will come with a headset because what is the point of having all these social features if you cant talk to your friends
