Re: PS4 ONLINE COST MONEY??????

Aug 16, 2013

Paid up til 2015 on PS+, I didn't sign up for online MP, I signed up for everything else, the free games, cloud saves, automatic updates.

 

Providing an online infrastructure for MP is not cheap, and the fact that Sony only puts the online behind the paywall is a lot better than MS is doing. I think PS+ is a no brainer now, and it'll be a no brainer on the PS4. I have no issue with it.

Trolls react to PS+ required for PS4 play online multiplaya:

 

"OMG 5 BUCK THATS A RIP-OFF!"

 

what i actually think:

 

"WOW, 5 bucks a month, thats cheap than Xbox Live!" "OMG IT GIVE ME FREE GAMES?! BETTA THAN XBOX LIVE!" "OMG IT AUTO UPDATE EVERYTHING, COOL!" "SAVE TO CLOUD DATA?! BETTA THAN XBOX LIVE" "OMG I GET BETA INVITATION!? BETTA THAN XBOX LIVE" "OMG DISCOUNTS?! BETTA THAN XBOX EN VIVO"

 

actually this is not how i would say Smiley Tongue

Don't know all the details yet and I'm sure things can still change but as of right now the information I have is that PS+ (or equivalently named service) will be required in order to play online. 

 

Tbh, this is a little bit of a dissappoint to me seeing as how Sony has always touted the PSN as being free and that was a major selling point of the PS3. 

 

I never got PS+ and honestly never planned on getting it. I buy the games I want to play and the games on PS+ I either own or have no interest in playing. So the instant library was never really a strong feature for me. The discounts are nice sure but it's modeled around a price club - save by buying more. Though the rub is that the games I'm interested in might not be on sale.

 

In short, disappointing news if the rumors are true (might be confirmed at this point, I don't know). I feel like I'm being forced to pay for something that's always been free on PlayStation. Still, I'm holding optimistic that Sony will really deliver a stellar PSN & online experience and I won't mind the monthly fee.

Thats exactly how I feel. Being forced to buy something IM not even remotely interested in. Yet all these people say this is a great thing. LOL

 

If thats so please list all the great things psn has done to where the profits have improved the servers or service  on the ps3? Where is that money going other than the stockholders?

 

Cracks me up because these are the great thinkers and then you wonder why our country is in turmoil. lol
