That's pure speculation. Fact is the playstation fans were delighted the anti consumer policies were not coming their way. As for paying 5$ a month for online. It's more then worth it considering all the extra games I get to play on ps3/ps4. It's actually the most consumer friendly online charge ever !
That doesn't change the fact that is MANDATORY if you want to play online. That's an anti consumer policy. You're okay with that 'cause you get some free games (more like they rent you the games, but whatever)? Awesome, but that's just your own personal circumnstance. That's like me saying that I'm okay with Microsoft's policies about second hand games because I don't buy those. Good for me, but that doesn't make the policy nice.
Playstation fans were delighted the anti consumer policies were not coming their way... but the fact is that they indeed came in their way somehow.
Lmao. You go on like running such a massive online network doesn't cost a lot of money. And for some games you don't need to pay. So your statement is false.
