    There's got to be something that Sony hasn't yet rolled out that you wish you could do. Or something they need to improve upon, your thoughts?

    I personally would like to see continued ingame XMB features added, so I'm able to do more while playing a game.

    Also, the whole ID thing the 360 has going where you can log into just about any game with said ID (in multiplayer) and have that persona with you at all times instead of making new names and w/e in each an every game is a good idea. I'd like to see something like that implemented. My bro and I each have a file on my PS3 as he likes to play some games that don't support multiple saves (Assassin's Creed, GT5P) and being able to log in as your file would be great.

    well then it should. 

    It should be the ultimate device. tapes, cd's, vhs, A-tracks.  It should play them all.  Oh, and it should also be a juicer.

    Perhaps a firmware update could resolve that! It would have to be in game caller ID tho, pointless if while playing a game you miss a call!

    Well, I wish I could play my own music in all games and not just DL PS ones.  Also I wish I could send files between PS3s.  Like I wanted to send to the MGS theme song to my friend.

    Imagine doing something like The Agency is going to be doing, as well as Sony with the PSN in the future.

    Since PSN will begin to be a more global network, across the internet, consoles, handhelds, and even cell phones, I assume an API would be available for such things. Imagine getting a phone call or text message whenever a firmware update is available, or maybe even a message, or a game you subscribed to is now available in the store, etc.

    That could totally be done, so I would love to see something like that.

    You know....I could see that happening pretty soon.  Especially since they were talking about how this fall the your psn account was going to be universal.

    Let me copy movies purchased from the video store to an external storage device. I'm not really interested in paying money to own a movie, and then never being able to watch it on anything other than my PS3 or PSP.

    FLAC?"
    An audio format like mp3 for example, but lossless. Lossless as in no loss of quality, exactly the same as a CD you buy from the store.

    Does it matter much really? I don't care TBH, I just rip every CD I have (shit loads), and every song on the houses computers, as well as on iPods. Adding it all up gives me a 20GB+ library of music, all organized with icon art and whatnot.

    Organized = feels good.

    Organized = feels good."
    Good to know I'm not the only one who loves organization :D"

    Video game list feature. When you put in a game it adds it to your list of games that your friends can see. And you can delete games from that list if you dont really own them.
    So that people can see what games you play most.

    Better Internet integration.  While 2.4x was a good start it just isn't up to scratch yet.

    More video codec support.
