You get what you pay for. I don't see how it's a scam. You play for lagfree servers, patches, and tournaments.

One lobby?

Thanks for the link. And what I was saying is that each game would have to host their own lobby system, but apparently I was wrong.


Well, technically yes, every game should have their own lobby setup. That's the advantage that Sony provides developers with. They can setup their online game any way that they see fit.
 
The disadvantage so far seems to be that Sony isn't enforcing standards such as manditory headset support for each game. It's not terrible but it would be nice if they put a little more pressure on that in the immediate future.

an online game without a headset now  a days is INSTANT DEATH !!!
 
 
and thats no joke....not to have headset support is crazy!!! even FFX has headset support for 360 for crying out loud......I cant understand that or the fact that these games SONY is putting online are not moderated...that turns more people off than anything else, when someone is permitted to cheat.

I'm not sure about the 'not moderated' part. I haven't played any PS3 games let alone online yet. I know there were many later PS2 titles that were moderated very well. I haven't played played any that weren't.

Then there's also how you can rank players, and increase/decrease your chances of playing with them again. A very handu feature, in the long run.

It's not a scam, geez. It allows gamers to save and play by themselves OR pay a little extra and go against other gamers. The 360 is still an awesome system without the subscription.

Plus its cheap...if you cant afford $60 a year, then thats pretty sad.


So why is PS3 offering online gaming for FREE? How can Sony do it and Xbox can't? Hah! SCAM!!



well they're selling their system for $500-$600. I'm sure that for that price your company can afford anything

SOCOM? SOCOM 2 ? SOCOM 3? BFMC 2? Call of Duty series? Star Wars Battlefront?
 
I know Killzone had mods who banned people and all that good junk, but that was the only game I know of on ps2 that was moderated, and from what I have read in some of these forums both here and on other sites, glitching is already a thing in resistance, and if no one bans the glitchers, then cheating is sure to follow.....and we all know that the kids are going to find a way to cheat. If I cant report that person in game for cheating, thats going to kill online gaming for me, since it truly makes a difference.
 
What ps2 titles besides Killzone are moderated? I dont know of any.
