ps3land.com: According to various sources, Sony will be charging for downloadable demos- each demo will cost JPY100, or roughly USD1
This is your "free" online service? Sony better think of something else. This is BS.
so the "service" is free, but everything on the "service" needs to be paid for. Sony have been kind enough to provide a way for you to send them money, and you get to do it for "free"! gee, aren't sony nice to their fans?
Well if that is true and i hope its not true for the sony fans then this is crap tbh.
I guess sony meant you can freely send in your money for stuff. Geeez a DEMO, they are making you pay for? you gotta be kidding me. I remember commenting on the sony online service a month ago and I always knew something was fishy. Another "I tol you so" moment. Still I wonder if this is true, but then again sony never really said much about its "free online gaming", more bombshells to come I'm sure.
$900 bucks for the full version of; one of the versions of GTR4?, im not surprized. I heard it from the feed on The Attack of the show on G4.
xbox live killer i tell you
This Move Is Not Smart for Sony, I will download my demos for my 360 and Wii only.
i heard kutaragi say something about paying like a dollar for small trials or something. This is total crap, why would you have to pay to try out a game?
non of you is buying a ps3 ,why complain?Hide like you are no fanboy when it`s clear .Sony had longtime said gameplay+basic service is free of charge while the other services might be charged.i personaly buy lots of playstation magasins just to play demos and i think making demos free will kill their magasin business
who are you telling me what i will and will not buy?
Ken? We thought you said free. I did. I said fee you round eyes misundastand me maybe have lice in my mouth. Sony online fee fee for evybody. fee fo you fee for me, evyone.
you're a funny guy
Well I myself never said I was not gettin ga PS3, so I'm not sure who "kingboy" is talking to? PS3 will be owned when it deserves to be Owned. I'am sure most gamers in here have xbox/Ps2/360, or have played all. He must be talking to the "fanboys" that only play one console. It's just most real gamers have stong opinions while having thier doubts about this new PS3 bro. This all started from the start. It really should be about the games but "fanboys" have some sort of "war'in thier noggins, which incites gamers that know better or should I say the ones that do not wanna be a "tool" to sony this time around. While there is yet a nice comparable console they can flock to. Eitherway this "Free fo Fee" service sony has been keeping on the downlow is starting to manifest itself. To pay, to try out a game is ludacris. Then pay, for when the game comes out. This is another advantage XBlive might have over this "Free fo Fee" service.
Welcom3 chang3 for now and b3yond.
Welcom3 spar3 chang3 more like
You don't knoooowwww!.
You mutha! fukas! you buy PS-thwree we shoot for the sun, but you get burned Muahahaha.
Its a smart move to charge demos then people wont try before they buy the not so impressive games
Does anybody know if the games will be any different?. Sony never had a plan and they're making this stuff up as they go. They rush their next-gen because of MS's pro's brain storming the 360 and allowed it to release early and the PS3! it self; is an re-action. SIMPLE, BILL ORIELLY anin't got nothing on me.
Considering the number of demos I download on XBlive, doing the same on PS3 is gonna be more expensive than a gold account. And that's just based on what we know so far that Sony plans to charge for. But you're right, Kingboy, I feel terrible about hurting the magazine business by getting demos for free on XBlive. I'm gonna write Bill a letter and ask him to put an end to that.
I always knew their "free" online was a scam. This is the kind of stuff that pisses people off. It's like "That depends on what your definition of 'is' is".
who needs demos anyway. i want to play complete games, not crap demos.
complete crap games are better than crap demos. Luckily with PS3 your dream will become reality
You sound like a complete fanboy. Would you ever buy a car without test driving it first?
but nevertheless it could only be a rumour, this is not official, so no reason to believe this.
You have already proven your explicit stupidity when you say i dont wanna try before buy! How brainswashed could you be ?
i think most of us PS3 fans already knew that "free" didn't mean absolutely free. sure, some of us like to throw it in the face of MS fans, but secretly, we were awaiting the REAL meaning of free.
Yes, they are usually not FULL BLOW graphically or playable wise, but hey, they are free (on the 360 anyway) and I can tell from the demo is the game I am trying is MY STYLE. I want my PS3, but I said from day one ... if they F U K us over on the ONLINE stuff, I will not buy one. Not to mention that "SONY" will not charge, but they were in talks with the bank (not sure which one) to make payment EASY to get our cash to the GAME DEVS that will charge what THEY think is fair (ala WoW) ONLINE GIVES GAMES "STAY" POWER
I mean can this be confirmed. I see nothing but 360 fan boyz being a little bore so they will take the chane to jump on any thing negative true or not. Don't worry im pretty sure some good news is coming your way soon. By the way i just downloaded Fuzion Frenzy 2 demo, if your bored why don't you go play that.
That would be mighty generous of you. This is speculation, i have no comment on this article.
one sider .... we do not have to be fanboys to be pissed off at the stupid sh!t Sony is doing. I have my PS3 Pre-Ordered but am not impressed if this is the case . The other big reason I wanted the PS3 was the 1080p function the 360 LACKED (notice I said LACKED), but that has been rectified by MS ... good on them. I'd like to play both consoles in 1080p. Now only if I can talk Nintendo into makeing the Wii 1080p :-)
Kutaragi was probably talking more about downloadable games like Flow, which has been demo'd at TGS. Probably something that the translator on stage goofed on. You people are blowing this way out of proportion without an offical statement from Sony.
he was talking about old games and stuff then he said something about paying a fee for small demos. This is from gamespot: "10:55: Downloadable 16-bit games? MegaDrive (Genesis) and PC Engine (TurboGrafx)? Where have we heard that before? Kutaragi also talks about the possibility of paying 100 yen (about $1) for a small or time-limited game demo.

Im just saying it dosen't take to much effort to see the 360 fan boyz never respond to any good news just the bad. this isn't even news it a romour. Only one site reported it.
