Sony launches ideas submission blog

PlayStation.Blog Share invites feedback on console and services

Sony has launched a new section of PlayStation.Blog where users can submit new ideas and feature suggestions for PlayStation products.

PlayStation.Blog Share allows users to post their own ideas and also vote on the suggestions of others, with Sony promising to monitor and act upon the most popular.

The FAQ for the site claimed that Sony is looking for "any idea that will help make the PlayStation experience better. Period. Game title ideas. PS3 ideas. PlayStation Home ideas. Hey, maybe even PlayStation.Blog ideas!"

Currently the most popular three suggestions are cross game voice chat, software emulation for PlayStation 2 games and auto-synching of Trophies.

Users will initially be restricted to one submission per day, in order to ensure a variety of submissions, but the most popular authors will be placed in an online leaderboard.

At the same time as the new service was announced site administrators have warned of a "crack down on Blog comments", with moderation for off-topic comments becoming "much more strict".

The site is currently only featured on the US version of PlayStation.Blog but any user with a valid PSN ID is allowed to post. Region-specific versions of the service are currently under consideration.

It's pretty clear that they'll have some design issues when there are thousands of ideas in there, but it's pretty well put together otherwise, and something a lot more companies should do.

Not a bad idea, and I quite like the layout. Will have a go at this later, although I'm more interested in game ideas than anything else.

I want to see who else out there is waiting on Dark Cloud 3!

I hope it will not turn into an opportunity for naive developers to squander possible superb ideas.

Lets hope that it just sticks to the most excellente suggestions announced.
