Should PSN Include SOE MMO Access on PS3?

DualShockers writes, "When PSN+ was announced at E3 2010, no one was really shocked by any of the details given, early beta access, possibly some cross-game chat, pretty expected stuff. However, I was not disappointed at the lack of shock value in this announcement. My own personal disappointment lies in a business decision by SONY and Sony Online Entertainment with regards to MMO pricing. The PS3 is the perfect platform for MMOs, but if there are multiple MMOs and they’re charging for all of them, it kind of defeats the purpose of marketing to the same group. I proposed an idea a while back that I sincerely felt SONY could have thought of alone, but it appears that this iceberg is heading towards the PS3 and the MMO demographic is about to smash into it.

First of all, there is a big problem with charging fees for every MMO game on PS3 at once and expecting them all to be successful. Obviously third parties will do whatever they want. Regardless of of...."

Seems to me that this would be a huge benefit to having PSN+ , I would be willing to pay double.

yess2194d ago

It could be very cool, but that means a lot of free content...
Someone have to make a living, and earn money.

Pay double is a bit to much though...

WildArmed2194d ago (Edited 2194d ago )

I agree. (not about paying double, but SOE MMO Access being a great addition to PSN+)
I'd shell out the money next week if this was confirmed.

nnotdead2194d ago

same with me. the monthly fee is the biggest reason i've never gotten into an MMO.

The nature of MMOs won't allow it. There has to be some kind of income for them to support the game. Though it would be nice, it won't happen.

What has the world came to?

deafwing2194d ago

This would make all those MMO games, especially Final Fantasy XIV more popular. This would a good move for them but more so for us.

HighDefinition2194d ago

Yes, it would be a great idea.

Don't expect third-party games like FF14 to be covered by PSN Plus, and that's IF PSN Plus covers MMO. The PS3 will get the same treatment with FF14 just as the 360 & PS2 got with FF11.

yes, there should be, not just SOE mmo games, but all MMO games.

its should be part of the PSN+ service.

Hitman07692194d ago

Third parties would never agree to this, but I honor you for trying!

enkeixpress2194d ago (Edited 2194d ago )

... This PSN+ membership thing should really have alot more features..

taz80802194d ago

THis lost Sony some serious points with gamers since they always touted free. Icluding MMO subs would be awesome

JoelT2194d ago

but because of the way MMO's are structured and the upkeep required will keep it at a separate price. Although it is unfortunate.

ruiner44822194d ago

Touted what as free?? PSN is free...

I can't believe I got a bubble taken off for a fucking joke. I posted a video to a rimshot, confirming my comment was a joke, and the mods still insisted I really was trolling....

Yet when two people give me a bubble+, IT NEVER FUCKING SHOWS UP! You mods are idiots. Yeah, I said it. Sue me.

On Topic: Cool. Only reason I'm even replying to the topic is because yet another bubble could be easily taken off for Off Topic-ness.....

Anon73492194d ago

This new bubble system is broken I got mine tooken off for stupid BS.

+Bub for you
