The truth is an empty, white page?

This dude needs some serious grammar help. Seriously

snaz272941d ago

ok sony are going to OFFER a premium service, what that entails remains to be seen, but what we do know and whats important is online gaming will remain FREE. i doubt sony will charge us for any of the services we already have.... anyway with that out the way there are a couple of little things ive noticed in those pics! and thats what should be the focus here! in the pics "5 advantages of playstation 3" check out playstation network, they are releasing "non-game development kits".... say what? couls this mean an app store? skype anyone?... and also the pic comfirming ALL ps3s will be 3D firmware upgradable, however this is pretty much common knowledge by now... all seems pretty damn cool if you ask me, big things ahead for ps3.

You sir... Are a completely dedicated Sony fan. Welcome to the fold! ;-)

Lightsaber2940d ago

My guess is that sony will keep the online play free but limit the number of hours you can play in order to try to get people to pay for the psn. Also that any new major feature they add will only be for the paying customers. Sony is doin this to make money so they want everyone to sign up.

before everyone starts screaming about me being a fanboy I'd like to repeat this is a GUESS. I could be wrong about it.

marcus j2940d ago

All you ps3 bots through that psn would be completly free for ever! but look now you raped microsoft over and over again about paying just watch me do it to sony now!

ABizzel12940d ago

I'm sure Sony's going to offer a charge for their service as well, but the thing is things that should be free (online gaming) or that are currently free will be free.

I think the charge part comes in for purchasing anything off of PSN like their currently doing, or to get exclusive items, or access to exclusive home spaces. Which is fine, because you don't need any of that stuff.

As long as Online gaming and PlaySatation Store access remain free then there will be no problem. I should have to pay to purchase items (XBL, Sam's Club, Costco).

If by free online they might be allowing free peer to peer play. To play on dedicated servers may be subscription based. I will get some disagrees for that but it could happen. Basically you host a game and you arent on a server so no need to pay to do that. If you want to play in a larger environment lag free with more people then it would be on a dedicated server which could cost the user a small monthly/yearly fee.

It wouldnt be the same as live because MS charges for both dedicated and P2P play. Yes there are some live games that have dedicated servers.

I really think MS should rethink their silver membership to include limited online for free. Maybe free play in smaller numbers on games or time of day free play. We know MS wont make complete online play free but those are just ideas. Ad based play could be another idea. You have to watch a few ads before the game starts for online free play.

can some one tell me how to get the link to work?

40cal2941d ago

the link seems to be broken.

robser732941d ago

The web site has reached a lot of accesses and the web server shows the link like a blank page.
Now it's all ok.
The article is back online.

Sabre_G2941d ago

I'm gussing that the service will similar to Xbox Lives silver/gold membership scheme, with the vital acception that online play is free whatever level you are.

Sony probably felt while there is more money to make from PSN, keeping online free will still be the biggest attraction to potential and exsisting PSN customers

The PSN subscription will get you to access Sony's Itunes (who knows what they will call it. The membership will get you unlimited songs to download from the store as well as free monthly movie renting. You will be able to turn your ps3 into your computer for music since the Hard Drive space is enormous. Perfect for movies and games. You will also be able to play music bought from Sony ITunes during games and will make the process of adding music to your games seamless. Home will be redesigned so that you can also access the music store with your avatar and purchase music using your avatar. Then Sony will re-introduce their IPOD killer Sony Walkman. Your Walkman will be able to sync up to the ps3. Imagine all these different things working from one place...your ps3 cause it only does everything.

ExgamerLegends22941d ago

So this whole subscription thing is confirmed eh?

Wasn't cross game chat confirmed too?

Crap that means cross game chat might only be available with the subscription.

If so i guess it would still be worth it.

LukaX232941d ago

It says: "Sorry, we've deleted this page because the article was posted by a noob writer."

JK! But seriously, I wish I knew what it said, too!

hobokiller2941d ago

It has a gallery of pictures from the press conference. It says the basic online feautures like gaming online will remain free, but that some areas of PSN, Netflix, and the PSN Video Network will require the fee. The video service launch in NA in the beginning of 2010, but Europe has had it since Nov 19 2009.
