Funny thing is financially its not an issue for me at all, but would kill my nephews .

But the problem is its competitor (MS) already charges for that feature, so it's not like something out of the world.

bottom line to me is all about games and I hope they rock it and show a beautiful design console for gamers
The thing is, don't you think that the Sony strategists thought long and hard about how they're going to differentiate themselves from their main competition.

It's MS who are the outliers here, Sony,Nintendo,PC(steam) and even iOS don't charge for MP. It is MS who's under pressure to justify charging for a service that's free on all their competitors platforms.

They should be able to make Plus/World appealing enough without having to include online play. Include cross game chat in it and make it a package deal with Gaikai for something like $100 a year. If that gives you free access to every game on PSN (PSone-PS3), then that's a damn good deal. And it should draw in more people than Plus has so far.

Well, like it or not MS has already justified it with the ton of money Live brings in. So how does Sony justify to its shareholders why they're allowing the competition to profit from this when they don't?

Honestly all they have to do is rename Plus to World and it'll be appealing. Add in a few extra online functions and you've got yourself a winner.

I fell victim to that. :(
I understand, the 360 was a good gaming machine and gamers were invested in the Live ecosystem. But it's annoying how gamers and the media didn't put more pressure on MS with criticism of their business practices. That's why I hope Sony feels enough pressure and doesn't want to risk negative publicity by putting multiplayer and things like Netflix behind a paywall.

And if they don't, they need to do a better job of emphasizing it, like at this meeting.

Kazman: "We don't believe in making gamers pay to play online multiplayer, unlike our competitor. Online is still free!"

CROWD CHEERS.

Holy shit is this guy that Wario64 retweeted for real? He's dropping some crazy bombs.
Its a joke and I suspect by Wario or someone making fun of the press:

There will be only one SKU available, at $399.
Online gaming will definitely be behind a paywall, except with the $389 SKU.
Online gaming will not be behind a paywall, despite reports to the contrary.
there are three skus: $349, $499, $559. $559 is teribyte drive, $349 is 150GB.

Nice try Evilore!
Isn't he contractiding himself too?
If you're talking about the dude Wario retweeted, he sounds like he's full of shit.

No way Sony charges us to have multiple accounts, what the fuck? And why would they price the SKUs that way? Wtf?

I can definitely see us paying a subscription to play used games, I'd be pisssed, but it is much better than no used games at all.
