If you contend that XBL services like Netflix and Hulu are behind a paywall, then you have to agree that your game rental library is behind a paywall. You can't have it both ways.


But your already paying for netflix, you can use a smartphone or pc or tablet etc.. to use netflix but xbox puts it behind a paywall. kind of shady.

Netflix isn't behind a paywall for the PS4 though

I think you mean free games* vs. dedicated servers**

*You have access to a rental library that you pay for and lose all access to that library when you stop paying

**If 3rd party devs spend a little more money to give everyone a better experience (fat chance). 1st party games are pretty much guaranteed dedicated though.


This.

And the "free" games aren't really that bad of a thing. Sure, they're practically rentals, but getting a free 1 month rental bonus for having a service is way better than not really having any positive bonus whatsoever.


The game remains yours as long as you have PS+.


It does? Wow, I'm a little surprised that I didn't know that. Well, that's obviously better than just having a game for only a month. Thanks for the tip.

They are subscription based games, but if everyone is paying for online yeah it's Free games vs "dedicated" servers

PS+ is to a bottle rocket as Xbox Live is to a NASA space shuttle

I don't care about a bunch of free games I barely have time to play the ones I purchase. Xbox live IMO is smoother than PSN. How you ask? easier to connect with friends with a beautiful UI.


LOL no.

PS4 UI is "beautiful". Cue James Blunt! You're Beautiful... You're beautiful..You're beautiful... it's true!
