PS3 to have Unified Sign-In?

Since there’s still a decent-sized veil of secrecy concerning the PlayStation 3’s online department, I was surprised to fall on this article. It says that the PS3 is supposed to have a single online sign-in name, not unlike Xbox Live. To that I say: O RLY?

Apparently, the PlayStation 3 is due to have a unified sign-in across all games so you won’t have to re-register for each game you play online – which sounds like it could be the beginnings of something special. PlayStation Live! anyone?

Resistance is also set to offer advanced community features such as clan support, party support, match-making and ranking. At present the PlayStation 3 operating system does not offer centralised support for these features.

However, contrary to some reports which have appeared in recent weeks, gamers will not be expected to sign up new accounts for each game they play, as the PS3 will handle a single sign-in ID for this purpose.However, the PS3s service still falls significantly short of Microsofts highly regarded Xbox Live system, whose voice chat, messaging, buddy lists and so on are not only a core part of the service, but are utilised by all online titles on the console.

I don’t know about anyone else out there, but Sony could actually be trying, albeit late in the game for them to just start doing so. This is great news for the console wars, because we’ll end up with more awesome consoles on the market with awesome features.

That can only be good for gamers!

    It took a year for the original xbox to usher in XBL but Sony has had since 2001 to devise servers, infrastructures, unified accounts. I had hoped they would have come out the gate with online. I’d actually love to see some more features on PSL then XBL like the browser and free since it will only force XBL to one up them.
