Could Sony and Microsoft adopt a more aggressive rewards structure for their new consoles now the groundwork is set. Will it be battle of the supermarkets all over again?
Today's marketplace is just the beginning. Hopefully it's win win for gamers.
Sony are really on the ball currently with their service; it's the lack of Private or Party Chat on the PS3 that gives the Xbox the edge, though Sony makes up for it with their digital content offerings. PS+ has come a long way since it first started out, and with new high profile releases being available digitally at release, it's almost the console equivilant to Steam, just with a subscription fee that actually throws content at you. Microsoft's biggest issue; is frankly that we're already subscribed, and although the experience was worth it then and to some extent continues to be; the fact that there are similar experiences for free, and better value for the fee elsewhere, they really need to pull their finger out going into the next-gen.
