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)
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)
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)
You mean articles about videogames,snackfoods and porn? 07:39, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
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)

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)

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)
