So now it's my fault that Sony is going to charge for PS+ and require it for Multiplayer?

This thread had some interesting viewpoints until it fell into a junior high school bubble universe.

Have they explicitly stated that the money will be used for servers or is that just conjecture?

Jack Tretton said said in an interview at E3 that they would be rebuilding the PSN infrastructure. I forget where I read it, but I will edit this with the source when I find it.

@SWERV

 

No I don't blame you for this decision, the blame firmly lies at the door of Sony. I would however like to take this opportunity to apologise to you and any other that I offended in any way. You and others have your opinions and values and that's your right, if everybody's were the same it would be a strange world we live in.

I just cannot see the logic in Sony's decision that's all, to me it's a flawed business model when your best selling feature was free online play. I think at last estimates PSN was available in the region of 68 Countries worldwide give or take. Of these some cannot get PS+ and after make other arrangements like fake accounts or get friends to buy it for them and send them the cash later, stuff like that, so how will this effect these ppl even more( possibly lost revenue). Ppl in other Countries have sent in petitions to Sony to make PSN available in their Countries based solely on the fact that it is FREE ONLINE PLAY, (possibly untapped revenue). Now imagine if Sony had come out and said we have listened to all the Countries and we are going to make PSN available to you because we are the gamers choice. WOW

Heart rate is slowing down. Pupils aren't dilating. Warm the paddles up, we're hitting this thing with full power.

Ok... it seems it already started!

The account that I can now access SEN/PSN, the account that I previously commented the issue here is suspended?

Probably because I'm from an unsupported country... Way to go SONY! Now I'm really **bleep**!

In practice it wasn't that big of a point. Gold hasn't hurt MS. More and more people signed up for it and Sony saw that. People complaining of forums but most will pay for it..

@ExMimic, Thanks, I'll try that, but what is bugging me is that I didn't received no e-mail, and My PS3 is offline most of the time (blocked from router, I'm kinda paranoid), last SEN connection like a month ago for trophy sync! I realised my account is suspended when I tried to log on here...  I'll try from the console later today... (I'm not that big of a gamer, only question is why?)

 

Edit: Yeap, console and account banned!

I emailed Sony and they told me to call an UK number, like that is ever going to happen, only to fight with a sony rep!

I did it once for a friend and man, I was like I didn't do it, they said but shure you did!... how to get past sheer stupidity? You are guilty for anything... I'm pretty sure comments here led to the account being banned, as console is offline.

All I'm waiting now to convince myself is that this account to be banned also...

 

Now, because I don't want to hijack a thread that was discussing SONY and the change in their policy for SEN, this ^console and account banned while offline^ put the last nail in the coffin for my new PS4...and actually any console for that matter...


Later edit: Yeap contacted UK, Contacted US -> Have to email to Sony Bulgaria (Romania and Bulgaria have same service center I think)!

Later on... Still waiting for response from Sony Bulgaria... and 24 hours have past and still nothing... I'm already at peace with it, but I really want to know why they did it...

Later, later, edit: A week has passed.. NOTHING!

Gonna resend the mail ... and get back to you!
You see this is how customers are treated here... You want to pay for that? And all I want is the reason why it happened! No unbanning no nothing!
