This is a great article, though take another look at your grammar. I see a couple of errors in grafs 3, 8, 10 and 11. Message me if you want specifics.

I didn't want to write a report, because they're not that bad.

it's grammar not grammer, i guess for you, grammer isn't the only issue

People pay $60 for a game and have no problem, but $50 for a WHOLE YEAR, is too much for them?

All the while they buy 6 games at $60 each......but $50 is too much for them ?

That is the most ignorant thing ever. All the PS4 fans who hated on xbox for charging will now/eventually realize the benefits of paid for internet.

It's just better in terms of giving you a smooth online experience.

That and PS+ gives you instant discounts and FREE games......These free games are good too.

I'd be willing to bet some of these same people who are complaining were paying $15 a month no problem for FF11 online & WoW......

but $50 for a whole year is too much ?

really people ?

Buy one less game and you saved $10.

You missed the point. The article is about Free2Play games, which should be free... to play. Your rant is completely off topic.

I won´t have to have ps plus to play free-for -play in ps4.planetside 2 for example will be available to everyone, plus members or not,thus the point of being free-for-play.If i need a yearly subcrition to play a free online game it´s not free anymore.dumbass...

Actually XBLG is $60 now, and that could have been another game. The reason people have a right to complain is because they're paying $60 a year to unlock multiplayer. It's basically an annual online pass fee from M$.

That being said it's best to sign up with 3 other people for a family plan and spend only $25 a year :D

Yea. It would be a good idea to bring some of those non-competitive games from behind the pay wall. Some single player games have persistent online worlds.

But those severs are not cheap. My payments over the years has helped to provide that huge upgrade that enables those online worlds. I don't mind them giving that service to the rest of the non paying community, but I will not help fight to make it free either.

They never have i doubt they will.

first xbox did have online that's where Xbox Live started, Halo didn't but Halo 2 did have online multiplayer.

The first Xbox didn't have online game play? I'm sure they did with Halo and what not. You still had to pay back then too?


it has always cost money, even back on the original xbox when the only games were whacked and moto gp

If they make it Free 2 play online multiplayer, then I'm gonna go with the free 2 play side. I don't need this paying to play games that have mp in it. At least make it an option to buy a game with out with MP, lowering the cost of the Single Player to accommodate if we want MP attached or not.
