If some of you think it wont be mandatory for you to do all your on line gaming through home you are fooling your self. Stop thinking you can have it all, we have the most powerful gaming machine in history. Home will be free but the XMB will not be an option for buying things from PSN or even a friends list it will be all about home. Before you disagree think about what i am saying,this is a business out to make MONEY!!!!
I'm not 100% sadly on the develepors part, I know they posted all the info in their FAQ back on the home page.
The income comes from the ads and premium items they sell and such.
Ads can cost quite a bit to put on. Premium items, even if they are cheap, Sony knows many many people will buy them.
With the profits Sony hopes to make in future, that'll cover for the costs really, along side with the income they get from the things in Home.
Also, is the development space on Home free for developers? Or do deverlopers sort of have to purchase some kind of license or space to build their world in Home? Anyone clarify this for me?
Anyways, regardless, Sony will have enough.
