    I understand this and im sorry if i seem a bit frustrated by this, but i visit this site multiple times a day to see whats new in the news, then i check the PS4 section to see if theres any news on the hardware site maybe the news hand posted yet, then i go back and check the PS4 games section, then the PS3 games section for information about games.

    Im not against change if it improves the forums, But i dont think that making general forums is a good idea. Hardware and software forums being seperate has worked quite well, and it makes it much easier to find the information your looking for, and if it doesnt, helps you to determine where you can post a thread to ask a certain type of question and know youll probably get the best response.

    As it stands right now, I think the site could use better headers for the forum topics. for example, instead of just Playstation 4, it could be Playstation 4 Hardware. Simple clarity. Ease of access. Clear language. If i wanna go find something out about watch dogs being delayed, i dont want to have to search through a whole crapload of final fantasy, and x-86, YLOD posts i dont give a crap about just to hope ill find what im looking for.

    I'll talk to Chris about this. I'm sure there is a way to have it more prominently in view. Good point!

    @F34R, alright. I'm going to wait for more of the community to chime in and give their input

    I still think the versus forum should be removed.

    If you look at the revisions so far you'll notice that both hardware and software is separate, what has changed is that the PS4 Games forum has become a sub-forum within the PS4 forum. It tidies up the front page making it less convoluted yet still keeps everything separate so essentially nothing has changed.

    It's Ok dude, I understand what you mean. I think there may be a lil misinterpretation of the layout format I've been using. The sections by --> denote subsections, so all th info would still remain in exactly the section its in now, but would be nestled in deeper. You would still be able to access it at a click from the index page.

    Why the hell would you rename the Nintendo section "Wii U"? Where would you chat about the 3DS? Why only the DS and the Wii?

    What about the Members' Introduction section that DeviousOne kept bringing up?

    Why would you put the 360 as a subsection under the Xbox One? Why not keep it Xbox One, Xbox 360, and then Xbox games?

    Why would you put PS4 and PS3 games as subsections?

    I'll post my arrangement in a sec.

    Regarding the Vs section...I never really agreed fully with its existence, but because there are always comparisons drawn between the two console makers and their consoles, it's kind of necessary to stop threads from becoming pissing matches within their respective sections. I just never thought that it is any kind of quarantine where people can let out all their patriotism so that it wouldn't come out in the rest of the forums...it was more a place where it festered and grew before crawling off to filthy up other areas of the site.

    Playstation section shouldn't change. It is fine. Everything non-PlayStation is, by definition, "Other Gaming" and should be organized so.
    Other Gaming -> PC, Nintendo, Xbox.

    The details in this regard doesn't matter, more just the placement under other gaming section.

    What about the Members' Introduction section that DeviousOne kept bringing up?

    If it's included, it will be in the PSU Community section.


    Why would you put the 360 as a subsection under the Xbox One? Why not keep it Xbox One, Xbox 360, and then Xbox games?

    Again, we could go with this. The set up of the subsections for other gaming consoles is flexible.


    Why would you put PS4 and PS3 games as subsections?

    Because it looks streamlined and is 100% just as accessible from the forum index.


    I'll post my arrangement in a sec.

    Same here. I think it's fine. Although I would be stoked to have a trophies section. I could spearhead that if you like Ghost. We've got quite a few trophy hunters here that I'm sure would enjoy it.

    Close to what I had. I think Xbox belongs with the other consoles, it doesnt make sense for it to have its own section when Nintendo, which has more hardware is stuck in other gaming and with just one forum.

    You're going to put the Xbox sections under "Other Gaming"? That's great!

    Xbox has a helluva lot more traffic than the nintendo section. I've been here how long, and I've never seen the xbox section actually cause any problems with traffic or content. Moving it is just being political at this point.

    Keep the Nintendo section, as Nintendo, without subforums. No need for them, and definitely no need to specify Wii U. Ugh.

    I am yeah. The config of the section/subsection isn't settled but it doesn't need its own section, it's still just as accessible with the others.

    Most of the site's forum traffic comes from google, just like the front page IIRC, so it's placement within the forum itself isn't of that much relevance in that regard. Also, it was only a few months ago that it got its own area, it has been with Nintendo for the most part.

    And no it's not political so let's not go down that road please, ok?

    I like this idea. This is a playstation site, and if any board needs sub-forums, its certainly the ones that arent playstation. My only concern is that more PS vs MS posts will show up under the PS threads if a VS. section is removed.

    Anything you guys decide to do, im gonna have to live with, and ill get over any nuances i dislike. Hell, i only joined these forums in 2008 so i could post a thread asking if Talim was going to be in Soul Calibur 4. The people on these boards, and simple navigation are what keeps me here. I dont post a lot, But i got one post featured on the news as a community thing which was pretty cool, and i dont remember what it was anymore, it was over a year ago. Just make sure this site is still simple enough for a lazy asshole from new jersey to stumble into and not be able to think of a reason to leave.

    I'm not talking about traffic from. I'm talking about traffic once it's here.

    Do you think placing the Wii U, a dang near dead beat console, as a section would do any good whatsoever? No. It won't. Keep it as Nintendo.

    Like I said, the labeling and arrangement of those sections isn't the crucial point in this but how everything is organised.

    Once someone is here and scrolls down far enough to see where the MS section is located, I would wager that said person would know where to find it for future visits. They somehow managed when it was part of other gaming, I'm sure they will manage again.

    As it stands the changes are actually very small in terms of existing forums. Xbox goes to other gaming, PlayStation stays the same and all of the community stuff goes to the top. I don't think it will cause mass confusion.

    If you can turn the Nintendo subforum into a forum, without having to move any threads, that'd be cool. Otherwise, I like our current forum layout.
