They already have a subscription-based online-service, and I doubt they have any good reason to change it.

Money.

The main (and only for a lot of ppl) reason people pay for Xbox Box, is to play online.

Fact.

Xbox Live is the biggest cash cow Microsoft has, It's pure profit, because they could pay the costs of running the service with ad money alone.

Fact.

Sony (like every other comany...) is a company with the main goal of making loads of money.

Fact.

2+2=?

And as you all know, Sony as a wholle has been having a lof of problems lately, so...

It all pretty obvious to me, it sucks, but i really believe there is no chance they will leave that money on the table.

fact 1

people are sick and tired of paying for something they think, and rightfully so deserves to have for free, and even though they pay for something they still get insulted by getting ads thrown in there face

fact 2

as far as i know, and with a quick google search to back me up, sony will not say how many psn users have ps+ but it is estimated that a minimum of 13mil users have one, thats how they make the money instead of forcing it out people.

fact 3

2+2=4!

well they are doing fairly well, since its the most popular console in both europe and asia, basically they only loose to xbox in america.

granted they have a good amount of problems when they launched due to the fact that it was harder do develope for then xbox, and the fact that it was way more expensive but that kinda also had something to do with the fact that it had a blu-ray player in it. the ps vita is not doing great how ever but thats not what we are talking about.

i would actually be surprised if they do

and it would not surprise me if ms also stops charging money on the next console and try to mimic sony in some form or another

but the last one is more speculations on my part

1. Yes, everybody is sick of paying for Xbox Live, but you know why people will keep paying for Xbox Live?

Well, it's the same reason ppl pay for XBL right now, achievements and friends.

If all your friends are playing on XBL, and all their game history is on XBL, why would they leave that behind, and why would you leave your friends behind?

A lot of ppl don't realize how important achievements were for the 360's success, and how import they'll be for the next console initial success, i don't care about it, but subconsciously, i probably do, as do a lot of ppl, even if they don't realize it.

And friends are even a bigger thing, Microsoft "kidnapped" your friends, and they won't let you play with them again, untill you pay the ransom money...

2. There's no way in hell Sony has 13 million active PSN+ subscriptions, that's probably the all time collective number.

I would have a hard time believing Microsoft has that many active gold accounts at any time.

And about Sony's problems, i said Sony, the wholle company, if you watch the news you'd know that the wholle company is in pretty bad shape, i wasn't talking about the Playstation side of the busyness.

Now, to think think that Microsoft would ever stop charging ppl to play online...

That's just straight up insanity...

They would go out of busyness before they stop charging you to play online.

Microsoft could have the "multimedia living room PC" dream, with the next Xbox...

Just think about all the apps they're putting on the Xbpox right now...

What's stopping them from having a start menu with the next Xbox that just pops up windows 8?

There's really no reason why they couldn't sell you a Windows 8 Xbox edition starter pack, with a nice living room PC keyboard with touch pad, and a code for the newest office software.

Well, that's what i would do, if my company's motto was, "We're going to own the living room"!!!

Simple question:

I just want to know how many people here expect Sony to offer Free Online Play with PS4.

Personally, i think there's no way, and the only reason it was free this gen was because, they just couldn't get ppl to pay for their very basic new online service, so the only way to make it competitive, was to make it free.

But now that, in many ways, it reached the level of Xbox Live, i think that, PSN being a paid service should just be a given'.

But i don't think a lot of people really expect that.

And i wonder if it could be a problem for PSN, when their user base is not used to pay to play online.

PSN+ was a good testing system for them, but i don't think it was that successful in the grand scheme of things, it certainly wasn't enough to prepare ppl for the possiblity that playing online might not be a given'.

Because i still see a lot of ppl who reallly believe in that.

So, what do you guys think?

How witty of the OP to reference an Ice Cube song off The Predator in his thread title. Please elaborate, was it good that MS checked themselves before they wrecked themselves because shotgun bullets are bad for your health or big dicks up your ass are bad for your health?

Hey guys, we got an Internet Badass over here!!!

Watch out!!!

He thinks he's smart and likes to use bad words!!!

Danger Danger!!!

Err... I think you misread what he was saying. He was quoting song in which you made reference to when creating this thread. He wasn't being mean at all.

Really?

Wow, i feel like a dumb ass...

But i left hip hop behind a long time ago so...
