What are the implications of pay to play online gaming for console owners. Are you prepared to pay up to £10 ($10) per month extra for your online fix? Msxbox-world explores.
This is s*** no way am I paying more. This sort of thing makes Sony's online service even more attractive.
This is something that Patcher has to be wrong about. Otherwise it would suck for those people that have to pay for online in the first place, then they'd be paying to play TWICE for Call of Duty games.
Patcher is great at throwing sensible, and nonsensical stuff out there, but at the same time hasn't provided any possibilities to make it feasible. This isn't going to go down well presented in the way he's mentioned, but with clever marketing just like DLC being accepted, pay to play online could be as well. Example being: Free DLC when you purchase online subscription...
I think he just throws everything out there and hopes something sticks, tbh. then, when one of his prophecies comes true, he plays the great industry analyst while sweeping the rest under the carpet.
We must have a petition for this!
Yeah, those MW2 and L4D2 petitions really stuck it to the man ... oh, wait.
There are plenty of mulitplayer games out there, enough that if any game adapts the pay to play formula I won't be playing.
If the online aspecs are good then i would pay ;) but needs to be good and not all games are up to that mark yet..
we need a pachter embargo. he has no business commenting on gaming. i bet he doesnt even own a console. hes probably paid for by activision and is testing the waters to see our reaction to "paying for multiplayer". he did the same thing for sony to determine if ps3 users were willing to pay for a better PSN. everyone seemed willing to pay and thus we now have psn+. nothing people wanted and still no voice chat.
paying to play online does spell doom. you're basically paying $60 for the single player and then have to pay seperately for the multiplayer. only and idiot would pay full price for access to half of the games content and extra for the other half. this is why i would never buy a 360. 360 owners pay more just to get the same experience as ps3 and now it is worst because they are paying more for less since lots of games are now giving extra content to ps3 owners for free.
