This poll is now closed.
Being able to pause scenes with the PS button is all well and good, but I feel simply pressing START should just pause the scene and then have an option to un-pause it or skip the scene.

Sorry, did that hurt? That "sorry" was sarcasm. I am not sorry.

Huh... never acrossed my mind to "pause" during cutscenes using the PS button.

yeah, i hate when its X or O or not at all. i dont skip cutscenes unless i dont give a s*** and am just playing for the gameplay, but all games should be paused with start, and skipped with a button (after pausing only)

I've never agreed with that ever. The button is called START. It shouldn't be used to STOP a game from doing anything. In fact I demand that next gen they change that button to PAUSE or OPTIONS.

Seriously, who chose option 5?

I agree with this poll. I hate when I have to change my kid's diapers during the middle of a cutscene and you can't just pause the game. I accidently skipped cutscenes with start and it gets annoying.

If you believe in Pikachu, have accepted him as a cute lord and savior, and are 100% proud of it, put this in your sig.

I agree. Sometimes my wife decides I need to do something, and it always seems to be when I'm in a cutscene or some such. I always wondered why developers do not just put in the code to allow this. I've started seeing it more since Final Fantasy XIII, but it's still a niche feature.

Civil discussion on GameFAQS? AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!

I always like it when you can pause a cutscene. In relation, I like it when you have to pause and hit a button to skip a cutscene so it makes it harder to accidentally skip it.

Yeah I do that too. Works for most games but not all. Should really be some kind of real pause button though instead of us having to press the PS button to bring up the xmb.
