I don't know what going on but this keeps on double posting for some reason today. Sorry guys.

@ 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.

xursz1318d ago

3pm west coast if anyone's wondering.

Highlife1318d ago

@doomdx
I doubt you googled it. I just did and here are the results.

Why don't you just say that you are to lazy to look it up or that you just don't know how to google.

Anyway can't wait!!!

theBAWSE1318d ago

Most importantly online play is FREE

ABizzel11318d ago

Did Sony just take my name, idea, and design for improving PlayStation?

Time to post my content to the web, and see what develops from this "PS World".

darthv721317d ago

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.

Live countdown ;D

mandf1318d ago

Is the media going to try to downplay the PS4 by by saying a paid service? Watch at the end of the day websites are going to drive home paid service to marginalize there announcement. It's basically PS+ with added services.

rainslacker1318d ago

And we'll get called the SDF for correcting the FUD. Such is the circle of life.:)

BlmThug1318d ago

9 more hours. Not long left :D I so want to see GT6

karl1317d ago

KwietStorm1318d ago

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF1318d ago

LOL.. nobody mentions this rumor says the pay service is 80 bucks!

Agent_00_Revan1317d ago

Saw that. Hoping that includes All gakai. I see it says 'while others pay', I guess that's for people who don't want PS+ and only want gakai?

grayfoxx8811317d 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.

neoMAXMLC1314d ago

And there are rumors about the PS4 not playing used games as well! Oh wait.

Chuck Norris approved!

Cam9771318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

I can't wait until 11pm tonight!
I like the sound of the YouTube upload feature! That will attract an awful lot of customers!

first1NFANTRY1318d ago

True, i hope that means we can now make our own full game walkthrough and upload it to youtube. I always wanted to do that but never wanted to buy a separate capture card or whatever it's called

Bathyj1318d ago

Holy crap, less than 10 hours.
Were in single digits.
I might go to bed early so it comes quicker.

Shadow Flare1318d ago

Don't oversleep, do not oversleep

Or Kaz will punish you when you awake

Crystallis1318d ago

LOL @ Shadow. Too funny. Sony FTW!!!

Septic1318d ago

Lol, lucky you. I'm stuck at work. 9.5 hours to go! 11pm showing here so I'll have plenty of time to go gym, come back, watch the Walking Dead and then the unveil.

Cupid_Viper_31318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

I'm in the west coast here in North America, it's 5:22 am. I've been meaning to go sleep, but I forgot how to do it, like that time Peter Griffin forgot how to sit down. http://www.youtube.com/watc...

One thing I know for sure though is "My body is ready"

Bathyj1318d ago

It happens at 8.30am here so I'll be at work.

Damn I cant watch anything with sound til I can home but I'll be reading everything I can.

Not doing much work tomorrow methinks.

Septic1318d ago

I know I won't be doing much work tomorrow, and that's after the reveal lol.

Wake up a little early if you can and watch the relevant bits. The comments section after the reveal is going to be a colossal mess of excitement, trolling and arguing.

xursz1318d ago

^ true that. Should be fun. ^.^

Bathyj1318d ago (Edited 1318d ago )

N4G will be full of trolls claiming how disappointed they were, that they were really hoping Sony would turn them.

These will be people that decided 5 years ago they werent getting a PS4 of course.

ps
9 hours

Crystallis1318d ago
