@ Jujubee88

Of course online is free, there were never really any doubts about that. Rumors stating otherwise were just from websites fishing for hits or with hidden agendas. And people who are currently paying to play their games online fan the flames some more in order to feel good about the whole thing.

The PS Vita should be all the evidence necessary to show that Sony is not interested in charging for voice chat and online play.

darthv72  +   1011d ago
free online play
That seems to be a given. They always said the core of the online multiplayer would remain free.

The other stuff that is optional to the individual will likely be more premium and worth paying for.

I will say though, PS+ may not be required for online play UNLESS the game you play online you obtained free via PS+. that would be the only real twist.

If they do decide to have a tiered online service where the basics of online remain free, I would expect their paid side to offer a more expanded online multiplayer experience.

Meaning that you can play against other paying members on premium maps or faster servers as opposed to the free online side. think..."members only" type of online play that is better and worth the price of being a member.

grayfoxx881  +   1011d ago
This article said it would be $89 annually, which would include gakai, downloadable games, and other features. Online multiplayer is still free, though. I guess we'll have to wait until later tonight to see if all of this can be confirmed or not. Go back under your bridge.

In the past 5 months PS+ Subscribers got:

Crysis 2
Rachet and Clank All 4 One
Cubixx HD
Resident Evil 5 Gold Editioin
Uncharted Golden Abyss
Jet Set Radio
HD, WipEout 2048
Gravity Rush
Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack
Final Fantasy Tactics
Ninja Gaiden Sigma
Scott Pilgrim vs the World
Double Dragon
Vanquish, Limbo
Bioshock, Bioshock 2
Guardians of Middle Earth
Jet Set Radio
Sleeping Dogs
Quantum Conumdrum.

Plus up to 70% off on a bunch of other games.

So those are some of the reasoning behind why him and others thinks that Microsoft is behing in their online.

So what about you, what's your reasoning?

@ Cupid
The problem is I've played 80% of the games on your list already. I have PS+ and only download the games I haven't played. Its not like there giving you newly released titles. Not taking anything away from FREE games tho, keep em coming. Free online and "Free games rental" are the only thing making it better than XBL at the moment. Easy fixes that MS can do, but probably won't.

I ran out of bubbles... is Sony charging $90 for PS+ with Gaika, extra cloud space and youtube uploads? Ouch

Probably a silly wish, but rather than Kaz, I'd like Ken Kutaragi there on the stage to show us for the first time the PlayStation 4. Or Gaikai. Or the revamped PS+. Or PlayStation Cloud. Or PlayStation World. Or, y'know, a PS Vita price cut.
But the PlayStation 4 would be so much cooler. :)

As cool as that would be, it's sort of unfair to Kaz given that he was handed Sony in it's current state and is doing everything in his power to turn them around. I think Kaz is more than fitting for the PS4's reveal.

I still have my phone to check updates tho so it's not so bad.

Just rewatch everything when I get home...

Hey btw hope some of you are enjoying the kickback from Sony today!

TronEOL  +   1011d ago
Yeah, I'm pretty sure most of this money is going to be heading towards paying off the streaming service/keeping it maintained/getting tons of free games.

I'm very interested in seeing where this goes, and since it includes PS+, I hope PS+ users can get into this at a discount.
DivineAssault  +   1011d ago
ya.. users who stacked up a few years of PS+ should get discounted $40 to upgrade.. Sony prolly has some bad a$$ new servers theyre going to be using for all this stuff.. Cant wait & ima pay the damn fee if i continue getting all this free stuff plus streamable ps1-ps3 games? no brainer
braydox21  +   1011d ago
well we already pay $100 dollers per AAA game about $89.95 per AA game and maybe $70ish dollers for A games etc. unless you get a game from other than EB Games. (Australian)

So many people getting so excited over rumours. Maybe it's because I'm older but I think a little more level headedness is required.

I really hope you are not all over hyped to end up disappointed. After all Sony is well known to over egg the pudding in their presentations. Not saying MS or Nin are better b4 you all shit on me.

I hope Sony present a well balanced and considered original design of system which will ensure the next gen is as competitive as this one.

If Sony unveil a paid online service like Live then I will laugh over my breakfast at the fallout on here.

I'm a gamer who owns all the systems btw. Amiga Forever!
