Close with PS Button

Idea 57524 | Posted in , by | July 21, 2012

when you view a message which you have received you could press the PS button and it would close the whole XMB instead of having to back out of the message, then profile then XMB

Oh, yes, it is MUCH needed ! Currently, it is a pain to have to wait for the XMB to load, select the user on the list, etc…


Neobara  |  March 17th, 2010 at 1:50 pm

Yes. Same should go for all notifications: INCLUDING trophies. It cuts down on a lot of sifting through options.


KatanaStrikes  |  March 17th, 2010 at 1:50 pm

Yep, ultra convienent and you don’t have to mess about afterwards searching for the message/trophy etc.


SeanScythe  |  March 17th, 2010 at 1:53 pm

YES! I hate having to go through the XMB to read a message. Since we don’t have X-game voice chat.





ExGhost888  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:02 pm

Great idea, simple feature and saves a lot of time


xX_SolRac_Xx  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:14 pm

Yes please, this will make the reading msgs proccess less annoying.


Rainbird01  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:20 pm

Would be great with trophy messages too!


TheManick  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:20 pm


That is exactly what I was thinking, thanks for the illustration.



yen-cid  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:27 pm

@theManick: no problem 😀
i dont claim credit for the illustration though 🙂
hope the higher ups see it as well.



ItsMeDarrell  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:44 pm

I joined this just to make this same suggestion; just have it go straight to the message. Make it happen!


Microshock  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:49 pm

Yes. PLEASE. It’d save so much time.


Killthee  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:52 pm

This should be expanded to include all notifications; i.e. a new trophy notification jumps you to the game’s trophy page when pressing the PS button, the chat room for a chat notification, a friend when the friend is online notification pops up, etc…


icegibbon  |  March 17th, 2010 at 3:00 pm

Or have the option to have the whole message displayed just like the subject is. I usually resort to a short message in the subject.


VociferousTURTLE  |  March 17th, 2010 at 3:03 pm

It is 2010 Sony, this should have been included from the get go. Likewise for Cross Game Chat.


NotALegend  |  March 17th, 2010 at 3:18 pm

That would be nice, of course, if it had the option to turn it on and off… I’m sure I’d like to use it sometimes, but other times I’d become rather annoyed when I’m trying to get to the xmb and I have to exit out of a message first


mwneuendorf  |  March 17th, 2010 at 3:19 pm

Well at the very least this should have been included at the get go. Cross Game chat requires servers and bandwith. This is just a GUI fix.


Cesarcsrf  |  March 17th, 2010 at 3:23 pm

why not seems it would be more easy and simple


explosive78  |  March 17th, 2010 at 3:32 pm

The in game xmb needs to load faster in general


Midgetguy  |  March 17th, 2010 at 3:42 pm

Very nice idea! I hadn’t even thought of this!

It would be very cool!

But, they should make this an optional thing that you can toggle on and off in the settings section on the XMB.


Vigilantis  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:05 pm

Oh god yes please, its something I’ve wanted since the first message I had ever received. Having to click through your mail inbox and letters can get very frustrating and prove to be quite stressful when trying to play a game at the same time.


Pantteri_12  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:06 pm

it’s allready coming, but whatever, +++


Jon_Mclane  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:07 pm

as long as it’s optional in the options I’m all for it


Jumplion  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:12 pm

I agree with this suggestion, it just makes navigating the XMB that much quicker and easier to maneuver with.



B-RadGfromOV  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:25 pm

I love this idea. It shouldn’t be too difficult to implement either. That is assuming you guys are actually taking this “Share” thing seriously.


ILOVEPLASTATION3  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:28 pm

This is SUCH a great idea! It would make reading and sending messages seamless and quick.


ironlung2k8  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:34 pm

how about you just buy the ps3 keypad problem solved



TheManick  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:37 pm


I’m not sure you understand what I meant, it is just a way to go straight to a message when the notification pops up, instead of having to navigate the XMB to get to it.

VintageElise  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:48 pm

Sounds like a good idea to me. I’ll vote this.


tuko  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:56 pm

vote’d up

thats one of the most annoying things in the world, waiting for the XMB to load up, then load your friends, then click on messages, then thier message. Yuck, too many steps.

Either open it right away, or give a prompt when you hit the PS button to view it or not.


joeman013  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:01 pm

Allow us to go to the message by pressing the PS button when we receive notification


patthebaker321  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:04 pm

would only be cool if it went straight to the message/trophy with fast loading


patthebaker321  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:04 pm

oh & give an option to turn off this feature



Worm-  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:08 pm

there is already an idea for this, this is just a duplicate


tuko  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:09 pm

This “Idea” kinda already exists in the popular ideas section already. But I’ll vote it up again.

Again, I think it should promt you to open the content or not first. Not always do I want to go and check out the trophy or message I just recieved, and it would get equally annoying if it constantly brought me to the message/trophy/friend who just signed on.

Also, what if you can’t select it in time becuase you are in the middle of playing some intense moment? I’d still like the ability to retrieve the msg quickly afterwards.


Krall12  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:15 pm

I thought each question was moderated so we wouldn’t get duplicates…


Caemgen  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:22 pm

Excellent. This should include Trophies as well.


MakaiOokami  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:40 pm

The chat pad does it more or less. You could get that and it’d have the same effect more or less.


Thrasher20  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:55 pm

This saves a lot of time. It’s also very convenient! 🙂

As comment number 42 said about trophies, it should be done as well


Rofldood  |  March 17th, 2010 at 6:01 pm

I never thought about that before, but that would be a great feature, it surprises me that it hasn’t been added yet.
