Default Re: Playstation 3 "Home Network" and Rumble back?

ROFL Home will have the RI/MPAA's having a fit. I can hear the lawsuits coming for sharing content on PSN.

As far as the rumble I certainly hope they put it back in, but the rumble will be eating a lot of the battery life so I really want them to put a replaceable battery pack like the 360 controller.

Rumble makes it all good even if we have to fork out for another controller. Home sounds cool but not going to get all excited and it turns out to be ****.

Hmmm this doesn't make me feel too good. Does this mean that the ability to upscale PSone/PS2 won't be available to people that have the hardware?

They will probably make a software emulator for us that would ignore the EE, I dout it would be any different from the units that are without the EE physically atleast in the end, in the beginning they might have upscaling first.
