Hahaha I was thinking the same thing :D

They WISH that Sony will charge...

sikbeta2955d ago (Edited 2955d ago )

That's not the Thing, On-Line Gaming will remain FREE, so Sony can charge for a PSN+ Premium adding features, not taking features in order to charge the consumers...

Zydake2955d ago

They probably will, but playing online will remain free. That's what MS needs to do. Playing online should be free and then if you want all the crap like Facebook, Twitter, ESPN, etc. then you should pay the $50. That's why Sony's is going to be better.

Nobody will pay for twittering, you can do that for free elsewhere. PSN+ needs to offer an attractive package to get people to upgrade. Free 2 hours game preview, special prices for PSN games/movies, etc etc.

MS CAN'T do that. The Gold subscriptions would cease to exist. I'd bet all the tea in China that 99.9999% of us Live users ONLY have live to play the other half of their games.

That's they only reason I have it. PERIOD. MS goes on and on about this and that, but that's the truth of it and they know it. You can have access to everything else for FREE online.

Sony have clearly said that online gaming will stay free for the life of the console as will all existing free features. After that they are free to charge for what they damn well like in my opinion.

They're going to have to to get it on par with Live! Development costs money.

ThanatosDMC2956d ago

MS wants Sony to lower their standards??? WTF?

Insomnia_842955d ago

Even if they do charge, I'm sure whatever features that are available now will remain free.

Raf1k12956d ago

That's the plan. It'd be really bad if they went back on their word now.

MaximusPrime2956d ago

i actually look forward to what this rumored PSN+ will bring.

If it doesnt satified me, i can still enjoy playing online with existing PSN.

Nitrowolf22956d ago
