I don't know about u but I feel that a social networking website for the PSN would be awesome. I feel that a partnership between Sony and the likes of facebook would be a bit strange as I wouldn't want online friends having access to my personal videos n pics on facebook. However, with a site where I can send messages to my friends when I'm on holiday and view leaderboards for games and maybe even trophies would be much better than a Facebook app on the XMB.
Imagine a site very much like myhawk for Warhawk www.myhawk.org but built-in on a major Sony owned social networking website. Imagine being able to view where u r on international trophy boards or select ur country and see how u rank with ur fellow nationals at Killzone or COD. And when I say country I don't just mean GB but Scotland, England, N.Irealand and Wales etc.
I would love Sony to be able to do this and add functions for us to send pics from our games directly to our online picture folders or have a video sent within minutes to the site for all ur PSN mates to c that sniper kill from over the map.
Tell me what u think and add any ideas of ur own
I'm talking about an official Sony owned website. I remember Phil Harisson showed one off at E3 way back in 2007 that would work alongside Home. I would rather have an official one than giving my account details off to some other website if it is fine or not.
I agree, its probably one of my most wanted features from PSN - I'd rather have a worldwide PSN site with leaderboards, messages etc. than cross game chat, but its probably not going to happen At the moment, its kinda stupid having different PSN online features for each reigon. The EU and US have different trophy cards and a few different features on the site, and I'm pretty sure Japan doesnt have any PSN features on the website at all.
There needs to be 1 global, unified site
I understand that Sony would probs not want to do a kind of website when there r others like PlayFire but something that integrates with the XMB and Playstation Home would be kl. It would be awsome and I remember Phil Harrison showed off something like this idea way back in 2007. Having better integration with other PSN users across the planet would be sweet and something that I thing Playfire or anyone else can't integrate as great as Sony due to the resources available to them.
Also don't u think some people including myself wouldn't want to give away my PSN details freely over the web. I remember MB saying something like that when gamer cards came out and he told us that it was our own risk. If Sony would integrate a feature that is safe then many would hop aboard especially if it is easily accessible from the XMB and Home
If Sony ever do make a site like that then there are a few features that I think would make it a real success
-Global Trophy leaderboards
-The ability to upload your own game screenshots and videos straight from your PS3
-A games library of your games linked with your account that can be viewed by everyone and includes your own reviews of the games
