Sony has the nerve to charge for online?

...And? When they announced they purchased Gaikai, a streaming company, I knew they would and so should have everyone else. Besides, it's no big deal since you should already be using PS+.

You can blame xbots for that. XBL with no free games, games with p2p network filled with lag and disconnects instead of dedicated servers, they ate it up like sheep. So obviously something with actual benefits, like PS+, is bound to work even with a price.

XB1 is the worst console of all time

Because buying and maintaining servers to handle millions of customers spread all over the world is cheap right?


How is it that I play games online for free on PC?

It really amazes me how so many console only gamers think that charging just to play a game like SF4 online is ok.

I agree with your original point. MS got away with it so Sony copied. I don't agree with your second point. I don't think PS+ is any better than XBL.

No. Microsoft has the nerve.

And WE had the nerve to let them get away with it so now Sony is doing it. We have no one to blame but ourselves. The xbox one, forza 5, ground zeroes price reduction, and driveclub have shown that if companies try some bulls***, we need to tell them "no". Ignoring it or "voting with our wallets" doesn't work, we need to straight up TELL them that it will not fly.

Corporate greed...gotta love it


A business sustaining itself. How odd....


Man...GameSpy must've found out how to make money grow on trees, being that they ran servers all those years without forcing people to pay.

Oh wait, you just don't know what you're talking about. Nevermind then...


I know you are a troll and all.

But.. you know companies paid gamespy for thier services right?

That's because your PC's don't have a dedicated service like PS+ or XB Live do they? The closest thing to that is Steam, and though they have free online play, Steam also is limited in terms of products offered. PS+ and Live at least offer movies too.

Most online games for PC's are handled by the publishers themselves and even some of them charge subscriptions services. It amazes me how PC gamers are naive also.
