Games bought through the PlayStation Store will be able to run on five-or-fewer systems. The important application for the five-or-less rule is that you can log in to the PlayStation Store at a friend's house and re-download a game for free.
And they will cost? Six times what you pay for an XBLA-game?
Sony's price policy is online content for less than $14.99 -- the exact same as for XBL!
Just as with boxed games, Sony is comitted to price PS3 software competitively compared to X360.
if it cost that much .. dont buy it .. keep playing wit ur XBLA ...
I'm a bit confused about this. Are games married to an account? Or this simply means that you can only download the game/content (5) times? How do they know when you downloaded multiple times on the same box? Do they keep track of serial numbers (i.e. the way microsoft does with windows xp?) Does this mean I can buy it and then give it freely to 4 for my friends, while I will be able to download it anytime I want in the future for my current box if I change my HD? To many questions unanswer. Can't wait for Nov.
How are you people possibly spinning this as something negative? And what's with these people complaining about costs? All games are under $15, and a few of the announced ones are only $5 I think. That's an even lower number if you're going to be sharing the games like this says you can. God, do you people just make up negative things when there aren't any?
You people are idiots. your worst then CNN with spinning news
No matter how good the ps3 news, xbox fans are constantly posting negative views.
thats EXACTLY what makes them fanboys. they consider the PS3 as competition (go figure); thus whenever it has something worthwhile that the 360 doesn't, they jump on the defensive. its like i've always said; PS3 is only competition to Microsoft and Nintendo: 360 is only competition to Sony and Nintendo: Wii is only competition to Sony and Microsoft. however, PS3, 360 and Wii should be products we are ALL interested in...as gamers. if one offers something the others don't have, then that can only be good news for true, unbiased gamers.
Just like how the 360 geeks talked trash about sony including a free blu-ray film with the initial PS3 shipments.
just like how they defamed sony for including HDMI support in the lower-end model.
and just like how they ran their mouths when sony finally revealed the details about the PS3s network, after they wouldn't shut up about sony keeping quiet for so long.
All those gaming nerds are just so freaking pathetic; thats why I enjoyed smacking them upside the head in high school. They should go hit the gym or find a real woman to set them straight.
They have no final prices on anything AS THEY STATED...
You guys are neo-nazi microsoft zealots, I have XBL(a) and I don't think this is bad to split it 5 ways.
to let you know that im not a xbox fan but im just gonna point out something:
to those who say "xbox fans are constantly posting negative views."
Ps3 fans are doing the same to xbox360 articals.
look in the mirror, just once, just dont let the hypo'ism break your mirror
o look someone disagreed without giving any reasons.
face its fanboys you kill each other for a console and then say other fanboys are always negative about your console.
It's a part of the fun of the battle of the next gen's. as well as the worst part of the battle of the next gen's.
