What the fuck
Never saw this coming. :Ownedd:
You mean like the Xbox Live Gold Membership?
maybe they are planning to roll out a new home like service in the future and plan people to actually pay for that. I think in reality they realize that their free online is not profitable and they want to get their consumers used to paying. I wouldnt be surprised if by the time ps4 comes out there is no more free online.
Nope, still free to play online. Everything that's free now will continue to be free.
they say that now, but by this time next year they'll start charging for online play.
i mean why not, they see how many people pay for xboxs online service, they might as well get in on the $
i dont think theyre going to charge for online play, atleast this gen. thats all i care about. right now im too poor to pay for a yearly sub for online. next gen ill most likely have an actual job and maybe be able to afford it.
yes, i realize its only x amount of dollars and its like 3 dollars a month but i need to be as cheap as possible with games. its an expensive hobby.
must hold back
they'll charge for party chat
As someone who owns both I mean this with all my heart
Worst gen for gaming ever
if they charge for party chat and even tack on some additional benefits, they're not going to get a lot of subuscribers.
worst in 5 gens yes. worse ever, no.
You sure about that man? Xbox fanboy's number 1 defense for paying for XBL was netflix and party chat before but now netflix is free on PS3 so all they got is party chat.
YOU ARE NOT VISTRIX
Where is that guy?
well of course not. but trying to look at it from a business standpoint, if i want to sell you a subscription service, i cant base it off of a party chat. live members pay for online gaming. party chat just happens to be a perk tacked on. i think this sub service from sony will do something like give you download credits, dlc/demo benefits, beta access and similar. party chat may be the last free thing that sony gives to its members.
$20 for party chat and frree online gaming is still cheaper than $50 a year for party chat and online gaming
but its going to be $20 for party chat and someting else...sony has stated several times that online gaming will still be free. which for me is the best way to do it.
Home I still haven't booted that up. Not even once. I hear some people play that shit religiously.
Next gen Sony will smarten up with their online gaming service and will charge just like XBL.
maybe like free rentals from netflix or their own video service this is actually interesting ..?
I'm assuming it'll be $19-29 a year, and in turn XBL Gold will lower to the same price.
how much you wanna bet its $24.99 and Qore was the test for this
