    Playstation Network - PS4

    Anyone think we'll finally be a global network playing against friends from different regions of the world? Or that we'll finally receive content on the network at the same time? Since the PS4 is preaching about being social-friendly, etc, these two key components should be a beginning start.

    I doubt it... Licensing issues between regions will prevent this for most content.

    That would be amazing but due to licensing issues it probably won't happen. That would be awesome though!

    Could have sworn there were a few games that it wasn't possible to play with people from different regions. I know a friend of mine in a wresting fed I used to play in said it wasn't possible with one of the WWE games. Maybe I miss understood him, but if it does work, cool!

    Wouldn't happen, different countries have their age ratings, regulations, some games take longer to port due to languages - especially Japanese stuff.

    Way too complex

    The only thing I wonder about PSN is if we will be able to keep our current usernames. I don't care that nothing will carry over but like to keep my profile at least.

    Your PSN profile, trophies, friends list and messages carry over to the Vita so I assume it will be the same transition for the PS4

    Why would they allow PS3 trophy's to transfer? I could understand if PS4 was able to play PS3 games, but it can't. Just seems pointless to me.

    I just want the trophies to sync instantly and the psn speeds to increase. I have 50 mbs connection on my pc through wifi but my wired playstation only gets about 8 mbs tops. I also get major lag in a lot of games...mostly COD. I don't understand...I know the wifi in the ps3 is below par but even wired it runs considerably slower than any device in my home. Finally put in a decent browser with proper flash support etc and I would be thrilled.

    You could play against other people around the world in 2001 (SOCOM).

    The developers choose this, not the console. COD has always had mixture of international players, so does BF3.

    You can't play Vita games on the PS3 either, but your Vita trophies transfer. It is all tied to your PSN ID not the console.

    My PSN ID will definitely have to carry over. That's a must.

    All i know is PSN for the PS4 will be awesome. Rome wasn't built in a day.

    Xbox Live took two generations to get to where it is.

    PSN for PS4 will be adequate, I'll leave it at that. We don't know what MS has shown yet...and lately I think it's definitely going to be far better than the PSN.

    Though for me, PSN will be adequate.

    Really? PSN is getting cross game chat, party system, and (hopefully) standardized game invites. Those are the only things that currently make Live a better online service and I can't see what else Live could add to make it even better.
    Also, if Sony will be able to offer those things as well as online play for free, then Sony is going offer a better deal for Everyone not just hardcore gamers.
    Almost everyone will say: buy console that has games that you want, and those who say otherwise are ignorant.

    Playstation Move for the win!

    If Kinect done right, it's going to be a huge deal. Yes I agree the pay wall is an awful thing but people don't seem to care when it's something attractive.

    It didn't occur to me before but the only way they can make Live better is to actually make the media functionality better. With Kinect, we're talking about an experience you can't have anywhere else otherwise.

    Like I said, if done right as it will be an integral part...that can really change things around.

    I want the ability to change my User Name, Party Chat is a feature I've always wanted, but having the ability to change my User Name would be amazing, I'd even pay to change it like you can on Xbox.


    A bit Off Topic but Terminator, your game scores are off the hook, nice job man.
