That is what i like about PSN- Free!

waznotwaz3489d ago

Yes.It is free.Unless,that is,you want to buy something.Then you are charged.It's called business.

shadowghost7523489d ago

I am aware of that waznotwaz that you have to pay for somethings but being able to play online for free etc

SL1M DADDY3489d ago

Yes, but at least through the PSN, gaming online with my buds is free too. Sure you have to pay for digital downloads but the core of the PSN, gaming, IS FREE!

Mc Fadge3489d ago

The core may be, but Qore isn't ;D

...Lame, I know, couldn't help myself v_v

Bubble Buddy3489d ago

This is one of the reasons why I love Sony so much.

mfwahwah3489d ago

Yes, you must pay for products, duh. The SERVICES are what are free, which is what this is about.

ARog343487d ago

It's what makes services like 'Life with Playstation' and 'Home' that much more awesome...

I could NEVER imagine this coming out of the mouth of some OTHER companies.

i couldn't have imagined this coming out of SONY's mouth a few years back.

for an evil, gigantic corporation to say something like this is surprising.

Sony wants our money, but at least they'll be fair in how they get it, instead of stiffing us with overpriced peripheral's and extras.

i've gotten some amazing use out of my PS3 so far, and when i think that a lot of the features i've been enjoying over the past 18 months since i bought my PS3 have been free, i just can't complain. especially since it's getting BETTER with each firmware update.

has been very consumer friendly with the PS3. Besides the forced blu-ray drive which many will have to admit is beginning to look like a good idea in hindsight. I mean they are losing out on a lot of money here folks. They get no money from people who upgrade their hard drives. Unlike MS who buys them wholesale, slaps it in an enclosure and charges 2x to 3x the going rate. They get no money from memory cards, charge and play kits and they let people use their PS2 cables for the ps3. Plus they are letting people share the majority of PSN games with friends and family. Hopefully consumers eventually reward them for their efforts.

I think that might be the single most under rated thing about PSN is the game sharing. Me and 3 of my buddies have formed a little group where we all share the same account for buying stuff from PSN. When we buy it everyone else in the group gets to download it and play it on their primary account. It's pretty nifty and i say severely under rated. I pretty much love almost everything about PSN.

Also i don't know if you guys heard yet but PSN Cards are coming to BlockBuster, RiteAid and 7/11. Link below:

i agree, i cant believe people still think that Blu-ray was forced in the PS3. I mean the games look great on it and current developers are liking the extra space.

PS3 is the cheapest blueray player right now and as the blueray format has won over the dvd9, your almost paying 399$ to yourself in the future for buying a PS3 now.

That doesn't make sense... But still you get your moneys worth ten times around!
