New Features Planned For EU PSN
Everyone loves new features, right? Even if they're not exactly earth-shattering, new features enhance the universal appeal of a particular application, and a few more are in store for the PlayStation Network.
As the Portal Manager for SCEE wrote over at the European PlayStation Blog, the PSN will receive two new enhancements, following on the heels of the last batch of upgrades that hit a few months ago. In just a few weeks time, Sony will add a "My Trophies - Compare with your friends" page, which is exactly what it sounds like: line up your Trophy list with a friend's, and see who has what. Then there's the Trophies Leaderboard, which shows your exact position in relation to all your other PSN buddies. Bear in mind, though, that these features appear to only be confirmed for the Euro PlayStation site; the title of the article itself says, "PSN on eu.playstation.com," so beyond this information, we don't know where else these upgrades may land. But at least these are two oft-requested features, and it's good to know that Sony is continually listening to gamer suggestions. Of course, there are many possibilities when it comes to the PSN, and we may see something very special when the "expanded Network" supposedly rolls out next spring...who doesn't want the Network to be on most any Sony electronic device?
Anyway, the more features the better. Sure, we may not use 'em all, but it's always nice to know they're there.
