Locked: With PSN going to subscription fees ...

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - With PSN going to subscription fees ...

We don't know. All we know is that Sony has stated to their shareholders I think it was that for next year they planned to increase PSN revenue through subscriptions.

It can be a flat fee to play psn games, a movie subscription ala netflix, gaming fee ala xbl gold... we'll have to wait and see what they have planned.


See, this is where you're missing the point. When they state this, you apparently believe them. When they say that PSN as it is now will remain free, you pull up the "you're a tool for the company, stop believing PR", while basically it's clarification of what they said.

Whether it turns out true or not, is not the point. The point is that you are now dodging one statement and 'accepting' another, while incomplete.

Close and lock the thread for OP spreading a complete fabrication. PSN will remain free. Sony isn't stupid enough to add fees all of a sudden.



Well my opinion is that the OP title is misleading and that, with nothing concrete to discuss other than the knowledge that Sony is thinking of offering some subscription based services via its existing, free PSN service (something that, in defiance of the future tense of the title, it already does via Quore in the US), the topic is one of those hopeless ones based on a huge mound of opinions without the burden of any facts.

It is, to be blunt, pointless.



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

Wow.

Misleading title first off.

PSN isn't subscription based, and will never be. They said there will be premium features, but PSN will still be FREE.

I KNEW this threads were going to pop up sooner or later, people just need to learn how to read.

PSN IS NOT GOING TO SUBSCRIPTION FEES.

Is that clear enough?

Id high five you if we had the technology.

It's just speculation that Sony will do that. I for one hope they don't... not because of Sony or the PS3 specifically, but in general I don't want online gaming to be a paid service especially when games are moving away from dedicated servers (which is the only thing that costs money for them to maintain).

As for what Microsoft would do if it happened, probably just point, laugh and tout their service as being better.

My god, some of the posts in this thread.. unbelievable.

Kaz Hirai himself said that PSN will remain free, or are people just denying what he says?

Xbox live is free, Gold cost money tho.

 

And i doubt PSN would start charging, that would be stupid. Why would you pay for something with less features than the counterpart HD console,when you can pay for the best online.

Im in shock at the number of people that dont seem to understand there is one reason people pay for Gold. Online gaming, not features.
