At least you have the common sense to go the PC gaming route instead of hundreds of others I've read here saying 'I'm switching to Xbox!', which had no logic to it whatsoever.


And 99% of those people who made that threat are still around and playing on PS3. <_>

1) If you want to be taken seriously, lose the foul language, you lose credibility if you can't use language to express yourself and have to use cursing to believe you need to to make a point.

 

2) PS+ has always been a rental, let us not add, that it's not free if I have to pay for a PS+ subscription either.

 

3) Sony has always been greedy, welcome to the real world where companies exist to make money, and not hand out games, candy, and pixie dust to gamers.

 

4) PC has free online and a robust gaming community.

The items you mentioned does not pay for the servers, the Home items helps pay for Home only, while games and stuff on the PSN store, pays the dev of that game, they worked on it, they deserve to get paid for their work.

It's not all that bad, it's only online multiplayer, and since it's PS+ we still get free games as well as other benefits. Every may now have to pay for online multiplayer for the PS4, but it's still a better deal then anywhere else.

Thats a marketing thing on Sonys end and not all of PlayStation 4 is pay to play online. You will still be able to log in and message and speak via mics even on cross party! Don't forget the free to plays as well not everh developer wants you the player to pay to play their hole game that you already paid for!

I actually want to pay for PSN. I believe that if people pay for it now, that the service will become much better. Now this is just my theory and I can't prove anything, but I trust Sony enough to do a good job.

If you want more feedback, there is a thread about this already. Check it out.

No like i have said before in similar threads paying for playstation plus is not much if you can afford a $50 game you can also afford a playstation plus subscription besides the PS3 is much more than just Playstation Home the PS3 is a gaming console with the playstation plus subscription you get tons of games for only $50 a year even if the PS4 doesn't have Playstation Home i will still have the service because it is a very good one

You pay for your Internet, yes? Then you are paying for your online since it requires Internet. 5 extra dollars will not hurt you.
Enjoy life, enjoy gaming.

I guess I'm used to it since I've owned a 360 for years and only bought a PS3 a few months ago. The thing I don't like about it is that older games will suffer and there won't be as many people online. At least PS+ does include some nice free games though. Microsoft just started giving away games to gold members a couple of months ago, but so far they've all been games that are years old and are maybe worth $5. Even the best arcade title they gave away was released in 2008 and it was only $10 when it was brand new.
