I've heard a lot of rumors that sony will soon be charging us for online play just like xbox. I'd like to hear from the sony staff about this on weather or not its true?
I don't understand. Sony launches the ps3 and tells everyone online is free, buy our product! Then turn around and start charging for online, it's murder I say.

1. You wont find Sony staff around here
2. Dont believe everything you hear on the internet or on PS Forum for that matter
3. Exactly for the reason you stated is the rumour false, Sony always said network is and will be free, they wont just abandon that all together and move to a paid service, it will never happen. Now what I can actually see happen is them offer somekinda premium service that you could pay for but again theres nothing official.

Actually PSN IS going to EVENTUALLY have a FEE. While watching one of the episodes of Invisible Walls on Gametrailers.com right after the Slim was announced the crew was talking about PSN vs XBL and they said in an interview with Kaz right before the PS3 launched they asked how Sony could supply an online service without charging for it. Kaz said that they never said they weren't ever going to charge for it.
PSN will eventually have a fee associated with it. As to when and how much it'll be no one knows besides Sony.

What are you talking about? Get off my nuts, I'm just asking about it. I was hoping to hear from Sony staff.
Then why not call customer support?
You're not gonna find anything out here, except that gamers just like you and I are the Mods.

I've been getting these stupid chain messages on psn talking about this crap. I searched online and found some different cites all saying different stuff about it. I would be super poed if we had to pay for online now which would be stupid cuz that's the 1 advantage over Xbox Live and don't tell me psn is gonna be better somehow especially since way more people have Xboxes creating more revenue for Live. Playstation doesn't have that, and adding a fee will only decrease possible buyers anyway. There's an artcile on techradar.com that says something about charging psn users, but it looks like mayb it's some premium option to me.
I've also been seeing news about something to do with "bandwidth fees". Anyone got any info on that?
