How much is PSN worth to you?

Forums - Sony Discussion - How much is PSN worth to you?

Netflix is a service, Broadband is a service, Google is a free service, PSN - free service, XBL - paid service.

To read between the lines, people that say they don't want to pay for something they already paid for, I reckon they mean that they prefer PSN to be a free service, they paid for the game, they paid for the console, paid for electricity, paid for the TV, paid to be connected, and they would not want to pay more for the game only to get online multiplayer mode. This is probably the casual crowd.

i said it again, i have never paid for online and never plan too.

Here is answer.



I wouldn't go online on the console then.



I think the problem with the OP is that PSN is not a service. It's a store. Games on PS3 have their own server, just like in PC land.

I know you don't like this answer, but I'm happy paying nothing for PSN. If they charged for it, I wouldn't pay for it. If I buy a game for my PC I don't have to pay a monthly fee to have my computer used as a host for a game that I bought. If they have dedicated servers like WoW and various other games, that is a value and is worth a monthly fee.

But how the PSN and XBL work, they do not offer dedicated servers (for the most part) they are basically using my ISP to allow their gaming to work. They aren't putting value into what I am getting from them. All they are doing is adding a way to play multiplayer games with other people easily. They aren't using resources like I am by going online.

I don't see a good reason to pay for the service, especially after I have dumped $60 into a new game. The online should be included for any and all games that I buy for the PS3 and 360.

But, at the end of the day, the PSN is free, while the 360 is not. Why should I pay Microsoft $50 a year to have some snot nosed pimply faced nerd rage Robin Hood call me a Ni~~BONG~~ assmonkey or that they are going to sleep with my mom? Sorry, if I want that to happen, I'd rather that I at least didn't pay for the service.
