Top 5: Things to add to the PS3

almostHappy Friday Everyone. This Friday I present to you Red Gamer’s Top 5 list. Yes that right a list, and it goes to 5. This weeks list is the top 5 things to add to the Playstation 3. It only does everything almost everything. This is what I think needs to be added to our Blu-Ray playing pal.


#5 Better Navigation
I love all the things you can do on the dashboard of the PS3, but sometimes it takes way too much scrolling to find what your looking for. How long does it take to change your background? Send a message? Just asking for a slightly more ease of use.

#4 Notification Box
I know what some of you are saying, “it already has that.” Well I still play on a SD TV (sad i know) and that notification box is huge. Imagine playing NBA 2k10 and right in the middle of your shot a huge box covers up the basket and the rest of the top right corner of your screen letting you know loco23 is now online. Can you say annoying, yes I can remove it completely but then I won’t know when Lanabee sends me a note. Thats just not right.

#3 Cross Game Voice Chatting
Pretty self explanatory. Sometimes you get a note in the middle of a game and you just don’t want to type out the response. Why can’t I chat with my Blue Tooth while I’m playing a game? Come on!

#2 Custom Soundtracks
The way the PS3 allows you to copy music from your networked computer and usb drives is awesome, but why can’t I play that same music during a game. Even with some of the great video game soundtracks out there some can get pretty annoying or repetitive ie Marvel vs Capcom 2’s character select screen. It’s only so many times I wanna be taken for a ride!

#1 Complete Backwards Compatibility.
I am guessing gamers who play PS3 knew this one was coming. Okay so let me get this straight, I can play ps3 games and ps1 games but not ps2? How does that work out. So you come out with a new system, its not selling all that well so you take out the ability to play games from what could possible be the greatest console of all time. I don’t get it. Me personally, that very issue is the reason it took me so long to get a PS3. Is it too much to ask to play Kingdom Hearts with a wireless controller?

    Totally agree with #3. That is definitely 1 thing the 360 has over the PS3. Cross game chat is almost a necessity when it comes to keeping in touch with your online gaming buddies. Seriously, who wants to always play the same game together in order to be able to chat. That’s just dumb. And texting is really not an option when you’re in the middle of a game.

    I’m glad I have the original 60 gig full backwards compatible system but I’ll be honest, I don’t really play my PS2 games on my PS3 anymore. It’s definitely nice to have the option but it seldom is used and I think the benefit of cost reduction far outweighs the benefit of backwards compatibility. But then again Sony isn’t sending the savings to the consumer. They are only trying to break even with the sale of each system. So yeah, I think all of the PS3’s should have backwards compatibility.

      I think backwards compatibility is especially important when you first buy a system because chances are your not get but 2 games with it. Backwards compatibility is a way of helping to justify your $300 purchase and I think it also builds brand loyalty. If I already have 30 games that will play on a new system I am sure thats gonna be a factor in selecting your next gen console.

    How about a more comfortable controller?

      I can see that, those trigger buttons suck. I mean they have used the same model for 3 generations now. But it is defiantly better than the boomerang prototype they showed at E3 when they announced the PS3.

    Come on Man no HDTV You got all the goods but a TV. I’m sorry to hear that man.lol DUDE it makes all the difference you know you can read what the games say on screen. lol I played on none HDTV’s and I can barely stand it I almost don’t even want to play. Sounds spoiled I know but I feel for ya.

      Lol yeah. I was playing Metal Gear Solid 4 on my normal tv, then hooked it to a HDTV with a HDMI cord and it was like night and day. I could read everything on the screen. Really made me want to kick my tv. Next big purchase is a flat screen.
