LOL!!! NO! Never is, the OP likes to troll and run. 8/ As far as the topic Home is a freemeum experience and a user could spend no money but your experienced can be enhanced through items and upgrades. I know many users who have just as much fun as the rest of us who spend money so it is done without complaint by many.
No crap it isn't free. You had to buy your playstation 3 to get on Home. Obviously there is a cost to the developers. They need to pay their employees. They need to purchase servers to run it all on. But if you`re talking about users, besides the initial PS3 purchase, Home is free if you want it to be. It's not if you don't.
Yea . That's basically how it is, I myself buy everything on Home
Your opinion that I'm a troll has zero effect on me. A comment about Home being free came up in another unrelated thread so I made my own thread to express my opinion on the subject and not de-rail that other thread. I rarely comment on people's remarks about my opinion. Do you expect me to change my mind because of what you think?
Awwww, Fran, does this mean we're not going to be friends any more? And after you sent me that really nice personal message and agreed with me on this thread (your post #22). You're just so changeable!
I've already had to explain this on another thread, but I'll just wrap up what I had said. When you buy your Playstation 3, you're buying PSN, as advertised on Playstation.com. What comes with the Playstation Network? Playstation Home. Therefore, you're paying for Home, although indirectly.
going by this logic, i should have access to onlines games like minecraft and such simply because i bought a PC. Also the budget for PSN and home are seperate, this is quite noticeable by looking at each service individually and how they are ran. it really seems like home has a smaller budget than PSN does it not. Home and PSN are also run on differnt servers (although connected (PSN servers must be running in order to log into home)) and what of the other gaming systems? microsoft charges their users for the same experience we have on PSN and nintendo with a cheaper system than both MS or sony has a free online service, so are they paying for all the "free services" with the purchase of their console?
this is a very round about way of saying that you pay for home. a single one time payment, that (most likely) is very little of what the revenew for home is.
BEWARE OF THE SPEEDING WHITE SAUSAGE!!!!!
