Anyway, I wanted to add to the discussion on the PS Store. It's interesting that Ship likes the new PS store, because I agree with the person that asked the question - on the whole they made the store worse. Don't get me wrong, I like the pretty overlay image thing. And the new design does make it clearer that they sell movies and TV shows too, which I suppose is the main point of the re-design.
However, I think it is a lot slower - especially the filter search. And that really annoys me. Actually, what I really want is a quick way to see what is new for the games I own. Then if there is new DLC for a game I like, I can buy it right away. I don't like having to go look up each game to check. Especially with that crappy filter system.
What do others think of the new store?

You've got a sweet-ass home theater setup with your console half a mile away from your couch, and when the controller dies, you wanna just swap out a battery dealy and keep going.
That's what I love about the 360 controllers. Plus its a pretty versatile setup - you can basically chose how you want it to work: regular batteries, your own rechargeables, a rechargeable pack, or a play and charge kit. Personally I just have a quick charger and slap in a fresh pack when my current pack dies.
For my PS3 controllers I just hook'em up to my pc's usb hub. I can't stand having my controller hooked up to the PS3 while trying to play from the couch.

I have to say that reading animefreak5445's post gave me a headache. It reminded me of reading Virginia Woolf - and that is not a good thing.
"Stream-of-consciousness writing is usually regarded as a special form of interior monologue and is characterized by associative leaps in thought and lack of punctuation."
Anyway, I think what animefreak was trying to say was:
In my view, Sony should actually give up on the PS3 (and PS4) and just focus on handheld devices, because they are more fun to play and have fewer problems. I think this would help Sony because they are trying to do too many things - such as music and TV, and can't sort out all the issues with the PS3. However, they need to do something about their prices too.
Is that about right?
If so, I disagree. A lot. I think everyone knows the Vita is not doing well (despite being pretty good), whereas the PS3 is doing very well after a slow start. As long as Sony gets the PS4 out around the same times as the next Xbox and doesn't set the price too high, it should hopefully do alright. Just focusing on handhelds would basically be suicide for Sony.
Sadly, I think Sony got a lot of things wrong with the Vita. Mainly assuming that everyone would be prepared to pay so much for the games. I think they are finally getting some cheaper, smaller games out now - games perfect for handheld devices. But I just think most people would rather just play games on their phones than pay for a new gadget.
