psn and subscriptions? who says?

 

Recently on some corporate event (shareholders conference call? shareholder lunch? I don't know exactly) they were talking about plans to increase psn revenue throu subscriptions, although they didn't explain exactly. 

It might be a flat fee to play whatever psn game, a movie subscription ala netflix, an online fee ala Gold... who knows.

subscritions... umm Qore, Netflix, other services. They will never charge for online gaming.

 

Yes, and bishops are never found dead at whorehouses.

Faith is such an incredible thing. Sony will do whatever it needs to do to return to profitability. They've already broken promises made to customers and if needed they will do it again because they are a for profit transnational corporation.

Well, if we can't rely on what has actually been said ('PSN will remain free as it is now'), why bother relying on anything...

 

They also said BC was a core value of what PlayStation is and that they were commited to it.

I can't believe you guys are actually swallowing PR bullshit coming from these huge corporations. No one, neither Nintendo nor Microsoft nor Sony is "on your side". They are all just interested on their bottom line. That's because there's actual people calling the shots and these guys will get fired if the bottom line doesn't look good.

Well, Nintendo is equally evil, right? So I suppose Nintendo is going to charge for online, too?

And Microsoft is going to cut the three year warranty?

And Sony is going to launch a nuke to destroy America?

We don't have any evidence for any of these things, so there's no point in speculating about them.

Kaz already said that they will never charge for online gaming. He said that after the meeting. Fail thread x1000.

It's still Toy Story

Nintendo should make a game for the Wii called "HD", and then say the Wii can do HD graphics.

a) Nintendo: they don't give a shit about online, social gaming features. Unlike Sony or Microsoft. Furthermore their casual-expanded audience wouldn't pay a dime for it the same way they don't miss the whole social gaming feature set.

b) Microsoft: they risk a class action lawsuit, likely to be lost (as the precedent of the class action lawsuit Sony lost on ps1 or ps2 reliability) and forced to do a mass recall which would be more expensive than the 1 billion they set aside for rrod repairs back in 2006 or 2007.

c) Sony: now you are being ludicrous.

I'm glad you are such a corporate drone and I'm sure the corporations tapping your wallet are glad too...





Current-gen game collection uploaded on the profile, full of win and good games; also most of my PC games. Lucasfilm Games/LucasArts 1982-2008 (Requiescat In Pace).

You know, I actually think I've played that game! On PC, though. I remember a level where Buzz had to jump between suitcases.

@ bitmap: Yes, they lie; they all do, but to dismiss it all, because some statements were untrue... even if you choose not to believe PR, you can't believe anything ever said by anyone connected to a company...

Still doesn't mean that every statement made surely must mean it's the opposite, because that's how some people interpret it
