Thats a nice idea if wikimedia willrealize that, they will receive many money.

Not a good idea at all...

  1. There is no way that an entire language of Wikipedia (especially EN) will fit onto a 50Gb BluRay-Disc. (The biggest currently.)
  2. PlayStation 3 has the internet, so I think a mobile/limited/different features version would be good. Or an app of some kind.

So: it already exists! And Wikimedia Foundation will make no money from it. The proposal is a browser and PS3 issue, not a Mediawiki issue. Rursus 20:10, 18 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]
Why would WMF not profiting be a problem? Isn't it non-profit? (Not commenting on the policy, just enquiring)--Occono 02:09, 20 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]
We don't have to fit in the entire Wikipedia (in any language). Instead, we could just stick to articles relevant for an audience of 13-17 year old male users (the primary demographic of most PlayStation 3 games)? GVnayR 03:30, 20 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]
You mean articles about videogames,snackfoods and porn? 07:39, 25 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]
We can do with video games and snackfood but the porn should be replaced be sex ed material found in most North America and European high schools. GVnayR 02:51, 31 August 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Some proposals will have massive impact on end-users, including non-editors. Some will have minimal impact. What will be the impact of this proposal on our end-users? -- Philippe 00:19, 3 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]

There is not enough educational material on the Sony PlayStation consoles for people who actually use the console (the 13-17 year age group). By providing an encyclopedia with all the educational information that is right for them, the PlayStation 3 could also be known as an "educational console." GVnayR 17:45, 24 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]
