Yes. Paying will help keep the server healthy and running, and will help us get new features.

Really? I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing these threads even after the PS4 releases.

I think it simply comes down to value. It does kind of suck for people who don't already have PS+ to need to join, but its only because you havent experienced the value of PS+.

I have a PS3, a Vita and soon a PS4. 1 PS+ account gets me free games every month for each platform and multiplayer for PS4. Sony is also needing to make huge investments in servers for running there online service and I am sure you will be happier with the PS4 service in comparion to the PS3.

Bottom line you get value with PS+ and it costs you less than a meal at McDonalds each month.

I do not know nothing about what it costs a company like Sony or Microsoft to operate the systems for their online play,  but would not be surprised if the costs would require a fee from the members playing, especially if the network is popular and full of players requiring a larger and more powerful network.

If you really enjoy online gaming and play alot, then  around $50/ year  does not seem too bad for what you are experiencing.

 

What is very wrong and why XBox Live is bad, is because they are using it to charge people who just want to watch apps like Netlix and Hulu which should be on a free network separate from the paid online gaming network.

 

Of course, totally free is always better,  but as long as the PSN is not requiring a paid membership to use Netflix apps and things like that and are including free games and other bonuses and their online game network works well,  then paying a reasonable fee does not seem so bad.

What because Sony does not have the money to make it better? Makes no sense, Is Sony is in bankruptcy and have no money .. Please explain? If they had the money shouldn't they make it better instead of forcing it down peoples throats. That's a Microsoft move.  Make it better and people would want to pay for it with out being forced too.

 

All this does is make computer gaming more attractive. Lets see more expensive console, paying for online play etc.

I would rather not pay the extra money even with the benefits you get with the ps+ but I do understand the cost.  Let us not forget Sony is a business and thier goal is to maximize profits, this is another way they can do that and still be more then competitive then thier main competition  with thier pricing.  I do understand the resistance people have and not wanting to pay the 50 dollars a year but at this point if you get a ps4 and want to play online you dont have a choice.
