 It's been some talks about PSN Premium and I guess Sony will announce something at this years E3. What content would in your opinion justify a monthly PSN fee and how much would be ok to pay for that content?

I'd like to see a music streaming service like Spotify and the possibility to stream that music in game. In game and cross game party chat would be nice. The cost: $5 max per month.

Post your thoughts and creative ideas here

I dont use my PS3 enough to justify a monthly fee, or any kind of fee. :)

something closer to an xbox 360 experience weekly vids, a customizable avatar, avatar awards, party chat, free or discounted games.

Well for me personally free downloads of Psone titles, music streaming : which means to me to watch videos or listen to the music in the background while playing games etc, revamped interface I hate the current xmb..if iam gonna pay I would pay for a different PSN interface look closer to NXE feel. Facebook/myspace app. and last but not least every couple of months free movie rentals that would rock  and also free first hand betas/demos and I would easy pay 70 a year for all of that.

I probably wouldn't pay anything for a Premium PSN if the current PSN was a free alternative with the current feature sets. About the only feature I'd pay for.... is, hmm.... maybe in-game XMB web-browsing?

I wouldn't pay. I'm too much of a broke-ass and I don't use the online features of my PS3 enough yet at the moment to justify paying money.

if they want a monthly fee they have to keep everything as it is ( for those who chose not to go premium and those who do go premium )  + ( and this is the stuff only for premium )  all the stuff xbox live gold has but PSN hasn't ( where possible offcourse ) , and maybe some more PSN titles here in europe cause the amount of games is IMO way to small ( and as the rumors say 1 free game out of a choice of 2-4 games ), video streaming and stuff like that :D

I'll say one thing, there is no fucking WAY I am paying $50 a month for this.

They do a lot of discounted games and price drops. They've also given a couple free games away.  Read the PS Blog on Tuesdays and you'll see generally the first ten things are "Price Drops For This Week Only"

That is only for PSN games. And many of them that are worth it. Are all ready at a nice price.

"Extras now" mandatory payment for PS4.  This is nothing more than a tester to see if the base will pay for online next console gen.

@The_Laughing_Man: 
PSP and Minis games get discount as well. Last week I believe they discounted 10 PSP games, so its a tad varied, but yeah, generally geared toward PSN games

I feel really bad for my PS3 lately, cause I almost never use it. So I don't know if it will be worth it for my part to pay a monthly fee for content I wont use. Well, it depends on what the content is of course. If there is content that can draw me back to use my PS3 a little bit more again, then sure! 
 
Also, five bucks for the stuff that OP mentioned doesn't sound very bad if you use your PS3 on a regular basis. But I personally would  like some discount on PSN and PS1 classic titles and/or that some content which without a premium membership would cost money, but is free w/

I won't pay for extra content because that extra content won't be available in Canada anyway.  
 
What I expect is Hulu support, Pandora support, a free PSN game once in a while, access to betas (these last 2 were common for Qore subscribers, but Sony could hold those features back for use with its PSN subscribers), cross game chat, 3 year warranty and cloud saves.

Free PSN titles and a party system like Xbox Live.
