Achievements. The Xbox 360's scoring systems awards players points for completing various challenges in-game. This points are then tallied on players Gamer Cards. Sony has devised its own point system to encourage players, called not "achievements," but "entitlements." Dan Hsu at Electronic Gaming Monthly said Sony will be dishing out "entitlements" via the PlayStation 3. Combine the motion sensitive controller, the point system, the "new" controller, Sony has not only its Xbox 360 and Wii bases covered, but also its PlayStation 2 one. Though, calling something an "entitlement" doesn't exactly inspire players to strive for something

Ok...

an achievement is something you strive to achieve…
an entitlement is something your entitled to have…
so…um
I’m kinda lost on reasoning for their naming of this…
Don’t they have a weird name for their copied live service too?

They could have just called them progress points or something entitlements sounds like someone just died and your getting their shit.

that definately gave me a good laugh, entitlement definately sounds funny, as far as name for their live clone, maybe they'll keep the "ps2 online" name since they aren't good at original ideas tongue.gif

How many times do I see Sony shooting itself in the foot, almost every week. I just pray that Sony will shutup when they release the dam thing.

The ONLY product Sony has ever given a great name to is the Walkman. I remember when I first heard PlayStation. I was like are they only going to have educational kiddie games? It sounds like a play area at a McDonald's. I don't think entitlement is going to go mainstream the way they got lucky with PlayStation.

It's sad, because the people who blindly buy Sony will hail these "brilliant original creations."

This has become stupid. Ridiculously stupid. Sony has become an annoying 5-year-old cousin.

Mom: "You stole your brother's Achievements!"
Sony: "Did not!"
Mom: "Then what's that?"
Sony: "They're my Entitlements..."
Mom: "Sony..."
Sony: "Mooommmm... I've always had these."
Mom: "...Sony Entertainment! Don't you lie to me!"
Sony: "I had Entitlements first! MS stole his Achievements from me!"

Give it... less than one week I say, and Sony will claim MS stole this from them, too.

You wanna hear about lame, how about the fact that they ported the PSP dashboard to the PS3, how lame os that they couldnt even come up with a new design idea for a dashboard. Oh Sony is struggling badly.....
